A change in state law last year, allowing sale by “electronic means,” has made it possible. will become fully operational on Dec. 7, making Miami-Dade the largest of 12 Florida counties in the process of replacing courthouse auctions with online sales. Miami-Dade officials expect the number of properties sold to reach around 1500 per week, up from the current 450, slowing the growth of an inventory of 110,000 foreclosures.
