The Outcomes of the November 2018 Auction

January 29, 2019

By the numbers: 

27  properties were fully auctioned off

2 properties did not sell or had winning bids rescinded.*

$101,000 = highest price paid for a property in the auction.

$756,800 = total value of all winning bids.

$21,000 = median value of a winning bid.


* Some bidders had buyer's remorse and defaulted on their option to purchase. The City has contacted runner-up bidders to offer them the property at the price they bid. If these bidders do not want the property, the property may be included in the next auction at the city's discretion. In order to discourage non-serious bidders in future auctions, the City may make the 10% deposit due upon the close of the auction non-refundable and/or increase the registration fee.
