Sheriff sales are held in the Bremer County Sheriff’s Office Lobby at 10:00 AM on the designated day. Sales are published in the town newspaper (Waverly Newspaper, Sumner Gazette, or Tripoli Leader) which the property is located at least four weeks prior to the sale and one time thereafter. The sales are also posted at two banks in the town which the property is located and at the Bremer County Courthouse.
If you are interested in bidding on a property up for sheriff sale you will need to bring a letter of credit from your bank with you at the time of the sale. If you successfully bid on the property, the full amount will need to be brought to the Bremer County Sheriff’s Office no later then 4:00 PM the day of the sale. This must either by done by cash or a cashier’s check. Failure to provide the funds will result in the sale being held again after a three day postponement. See code section 626.81 for details.
The Bremer County Sheriff’s Office does not have keys or access to the property up for sale. You will need to contact the current homeowner.
