When the auction is over, if the bank buys it, they will usually send their realtor over to negotiate a cash-for-keys with you. they will agree to give you some money to help you relocate to a different property and you will agree to leave the house in broom swept condition. They usually give you anywhere from 2-4 weeks, but it's negotiatiable. The banks understand you need help to move on and they aren't intereted in throwing you out in the street the same day they buy the house at auction, but it is their asset and they will need to take possession of it. You can call the bank and talk with them directly as well.
