Texas counties that maintain a website must post on that site notice of current foreclosure sales for public viewing, according to Cameron County. The website of Cameron County, the county South Padre Island is located, is accessible at Co.Cameron.tx.us.
After a bank takes possession of a foreclosed property, the property immediately goes to auction, according to The Motley Fool. If a property does not sell at auction, it gets listed for sale online along with other homes. Buying a foreclosed home can take longer than a typical sale because any offer must receive several different approvals prior to acceptance by the bank.
