CHANGES THIS YEAR: The 2022/2023 fiscal year taxes are NOT included in the bid price. In addition to the purchase, a 2022/2023 tax bill WILL be mailed to the successful bidder in October 2022 and will be due in two installments by December 10, 2022, and April 10, 2023.

Due to COVID and to maintain social distancing, any successful bidders will have to settle their purchase with an appointment. Appointments will be provided before leaving the auction and will be offered in order of bid numbers issued at time of registration. Thank you for your patience.

Caveat Emptor - Buyer Beware

All sales are final. It is the responsibility of the bidder to know what is being purchased before a bid is placed. You should personally inspect the property and search the title to prevent unwelcome surprises.
