Unfortunately, after the Judge signs a judgment of foreclosure and sale, your home will be sold by the Referee at an auction sale at the courthouse to the highest bidder. The plaintiff puts a notice about the auction in a newspaper at least 30 days before the auction date. If you did not file an Answer, the plaintiff does not have to tell you about the auction. In any event, it has to be at least 30 days notice.
You can stop the sale at any time up until your home is sold if you come up with the money owed to the plaintiff. You can also ask the court to stop the sale by making an Order to Show Cause. But once the sale is complete, you lose your home. You will get notice of when you have to move out.
We can continue to discuss this if you want to do so. Sorry about the news. I know the answer is not quite what you wanted to hear but at least you know what can happen. Best regards
