Dear Bidders,

On behalf of all of us at the Broward County Clerk of Court's office, we welcome you to our new web site at for online sales of foreclosure properties.

The online sales are designed to make the process more convenient, easier to use and potentially increase the pool of prospective buyers for each property. We believe this will be of benefit to bidders and property owners alike.

Please review the information about the procedures before getting started. It's a good idea to read through the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's) section. You are required to register before placing your bid, so please be sure to complete the administrative portion first.

The online sale site is open 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. This service offers you the opportunity to review property information, make deposits, place bids, view auction results and pay for your property, all from the comfort of your home or office and at times that are convenient for you.

Thank you for joining us as we become one of the first counties in the country to implement an online process for foreclosures. If you have questions about the use of the site, please contact the Realauction Customer Service Center toll free at (877) 361-7325. Once oriented, we are sure you will find the online auction process simple to use and the site easy to navigate.
