How do you decide what the “Opening Bid” is at the Trustee Sale?

Generally the opening bid is the amount of the principal, interest, late charges and any other advances made by the lender, including our trustee fees and costs. A lender can opt to reduce their opening bid as it may have some advantages. All strategies in this regard should be planned with the advice of your tax preparer and legal counsel.
