(Victor Valley) — San Bernardino County Tax Collector Oscar Valdez announced today that his office will hold its annual on-line auction of tax-defaulted properties beginning August 6th, with staggered closing times from August 8th through August 12th.
“The benefit of a tax sale is getting tax-defaulted properties back into tax paying status to fund key public services including education, police and fire protection, social and public health services,” Valdez said. “Winning bidders have the opportunity to buy real estate at potentially reduced prices.”
This tax sale auction consists of more than 1,400 properties that have been tax-defaulted for five or more years, and will include both newly-offered and re-offered properties. Some bids start as low as $100, and the highest bid wins. Tax information, maps and other due diligence material is available for viewing on-line at www.MyTaxCollector.com. Property is sold “as is”, and purchasers are encouraged to complete a thorough due diligence review prior to bidding.
Auction properties include single-family residences, timeshares, commercial buildings and vacant land. To participate in this auction, an advanced deposit of $1,035 is due by July 29th, and you must pre-register to bid.
