Foreclosed Homes And Properties Sold To Highest Bidder
By Fox 40 News. Today, Broome County auctioned off 25 foreclosed properties.
The properties included single and multi-family homes, vacant lots, and former businesses, including the former DMV on Clinton Street.
"I hope that the people do their homework, go out and go to the open houses if anything is vacant so they know exactly what they are bidding on...we don't want them sitting on the properties, we want them utilized," said Director of Real Property Broome County, David Hamlin.
All of the properties in the auction were sold as is. Auction organizers say they are hoping that bidders will contribute to cleaning up the neighborhoods by renovating the homes and creating new properties.
Last year the county sold 108 properties making nearly $570,000.
