Montgomery County commissioners agreed on Tuesday to remove the county’s designation for foreclosure sales to default the new location to Courthouse Steps.

According to Precinct 3 Commissioner James Noack, the sale interfered with Commissioners’ Court meetings and County business.

“I think we have to get them out of this period,” Noack said.

County Attorney BD Griffin said the process of designating a different location for the sale is taking 91 days, noting the August sale would still be in the commissioners’ courtroom. However, by removing the current location designation, the sale would automatically move to the Courthouse Steps, 301 N. Main.

Foreclosure sales take place at 10 a.m. on the first Tuesday of each month. If that day falls on a public holiday, the dale is the next working day.

Griffin noted that most sales are now online.

Sales and resales of overdue tax foreclosures will be conducted by county officers through an online platform operated by Real Auction at www.realauction.com.
