How long after the actual sheriff's sale do I have to vacate my home?

Question Details: I have heard of people allegedly locked out of their property the day of the sale, but I have also heard that I am supposed to have 10 days until the buyer (or bank) gets the new deed and therefore rights of possession; then they have to file a 3 day notice, and then the new owner can come with the Sheriff and change the locks. I have a place to move to, but it's not available until 5 days after the sheriff's sale. I'm not trying to pull a scam or buy time, I just don't want to lose all of my possessions. Important Notice
