Sheriff Sales

The Sheriff is issued Orders of Sales from the Clerk of Courts Office. These sales are advertised in The Early Bird Newspaper once every week for three consecutive weeks. All Sales are held at the Darke County Commissioners Office, 504 S Broadway St, at 10 AM on the Fridays listed at the link below.  


Starting in July the Darke County Sheriff’s Office will no longer be conducting sales of real estate for foreclosures in person at the Darke County Commissioners building. Pursuant to House Bill 390, RealAuction has been contracted with the Ohio Department of Administrative Services for these sales to be on-line with the “Official Public Sheriff’s Sale Website”. The process and procedures under which these sales will be completed are detailed at RealAuction’s website


Prospective bidders should familiarize themselves with this new process. Training classes are offered on a monthly basis and these webinar classes generally last 90 minutes and specifically cover the use of the software.

Attendance is by registration only at

For additional information or questions regarding training, please contact the RealAuction Customer Service Center at (954) 734-7401 or toll free at (877) 361-7325

Changes do not affect tax sales.  These sales will continue to be conducted at the Darke County Commissioners Building until further notice.


Prior to the sale, most properties are appraised from the outside only. It's important to realize that the Sheriff is just selling the house per court orders and we do not have keys, nor can we give you any rights to tour the house before a potential buy.​

You may contact Myles Linderman during normal business hours for detailed information on the sales. Hours are Monday - Friday, 8 AM - 4 PM. (closed holidays)
