Florida County To Add Online Bidding
Florida’s Broward County, home to Fort Lauderdale, which has the state’s third-highest foreclosure rate, is taking an innovative step to make selling foreclosed properties faster and easier.

Officials say the online auctions will speed up the process, allow staff to do other things, and potentially save thousands of dollars every month.
