No, but I've tried to sell one at auction, and I just lost my $2,000 fee to the auctioneer. The bid on the house was $6,000 less than the price I paid for it before I invested close to $40,000 more in repairs and updates. This guy was a slick real estate agent who was also an auctioneer. I wasn't in financial trouble with the house, I just wanted to sell it and get away from being a landlord. He convinced me to let him do an auction. He wasn't able to sell it for me after the auction either, and blamed it on the tenants. The whole charade was an insult, and I learned a valuable lesson. I do not recommend the auction route for a seller.
If I were going to try to buy a house through an auction, I would get a good real estate agent to represent me. I wouldn't try it alone because there are too many charletons out there.
