Ray, I have been waiting for the notice of the sheriffs sale…

Hi Ray, I have been...
Hi Ray, I have been waiting for the notice of the sheriffs sale to show up on the lower court records and it has not. If you will recall, the "bank" bought it back after the lower court denied them advertising and additional costs. I have been watching to see if the deed was signed over and it hasn't The sheriffs sale was Feb 5th. 2 days after the sale the REO company (local) checked to see that I was still living here and when I called the Reo realtor he said a company, I have never heard of bought it back. My question is-does anything come to mind
that could have gone on? I have looked up other foreclosure cases that have gone to sheriffs sale and the notice is always in the records. Need you help. Thank you.
