I think they are sales of foreclosed properties that are sold at the courthouse.

Cottle and his gang are selling their momentos from the Department. Apparently you can get some lies, cheating on spouse books, some how to be a rookie Detective magazines, and some how to act tougher than you are pamphlets, pretty cheap at the sale.

Why don't the bank sell the property instead of the sheriff?

I think if the taxes are very delinquent, the county comes in and takes over the house. If the person defaults on their mortgage, that's when the bank resells it. There are probably several reasons why a property can be sold from the courthouse.

Cottle isn't gone yet? Why doesn't he move to D.C. and protect our new President? He can take his friends with him. He might enjoy the White House. I have been inside a few times. Nice place, rich with history. I didn't like the picture of Hillary though.

A sheriff's sale is when law enforcement auction off confiscated property that was either used illegally or bought illegally by criminals. Sometimes these can include homes,cars, bikes, electronics, tools, etc... There may also be stolen items that have been recovered but never claimed by the owners. If you have had property stolen from you and you can prove ownership, make contact with the evidence techs at the departments and see if the property has been recovered. That is why I would recommend if possible to make a photo book/video tape of your property and keep track of serial numbers etc for big items or electronics so that they may be more easily identified if they are recovered.

Important to Remember!!

You are responsible to have your own title searches
You are responsible to make sure that the property that you bid on is the property you want.
You are responsible to do your own investigation as to where real property is located.
We do not have keys to the real properties. We sometimes have keys to automobiles.
We have no other information about a particular parcel of property other than what was provided to us by the attorney representing the plaintiff when the property was originally advertised for sale. We do not verify or certify the property description information.
Should you be a successful purchaser of real property of Sheriff's Sale, and someone is still residing at the property, it is your responsibility to have him or her removed from the property by legal process.
Only limited information is available about any item listed. Most, if not all, available information is listed on the website. Interested parties should inspect the item on the sale date if interested in purchasing any item.
Items of personal property must be removed from the site at time of sale.

This is some info about a sheriff's sale in Shelby County. Good to know.

Go to stlouis.missouri.org/citygov/sheriff/property... and it will take you straight to the sheriff's page on seizures of real estate, etc. which has been taken and put up for sale for failure to pay taxes. The sale has already taken place but it gives you an idea of how cheaply someone can purchase real estate, etc.

There are many things that you can't look up on-line through our courthouse, such as comp properties, etc. like you can with other counties. I've always had to go directly to the courthouse for certain info and this is probably one of those cases. I haven't found anything that is showing sheriff sales here but you can go to the courthouse to find the information you need. It's well worth the time if you're looking for real estate because you can many times get it for practically nothing.
