What does it mean if an auction is stayed?
When a writ, or specific written order, is stayed, the court has decided to stop a particular action, typically the foreclosure process as a whole. In this case the court will often “stay” or pause a writ while the evidence is examined, in which case the property is not foreclosed until the court can make a decision.
What is a foreclosure stay?
The automatic stay gives the trustee time to sell property that would otherwise be foreclosed on if there is a potential benefit for the estate (there’d have to be sufficient equity in the property).
What happens if a house doesn’t sell at sheriff’s sale?

Do you lose everything in a foreclosure?

What is the difference between a foreclosure and a sheriff sale?
