The Adams County Sheriff’s Office Real Estate Services is responsible for mortgage foreclosures throughout Adams County. Sheriff’s Sales are held once every other month on the third Friday. Sales start at 10:00am in the Adams County Courthouse. Those attending should plan to be there by no later than 9:45 AM to sign in if they intend to bid and to review the sale postings.
The Real Estate Section is responsible for notifying the defendants and for the advertising of sale properties. The Real Estate Section schedules approximately 90 to 100 Sheriff’s Sales per sale date. Those attending should note that many sales are postponed or cancelled. Recently, for every 90 or 100 sales advertised, only about 40 properties sell. Others will be rescheduled.
