(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 May 13, 2017, with staggered closing times from May 15 through May 19.
“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 2,000 properties that have been tax-defaulted for five or more years, and will include both newly-offered and re-offered properties. Opening bids start as low as $800, and the highest bid wins. Each bidder alone bears the responsibility of due diligence to inspect, research, and investigate the properties offered for sale. Limited tax information including parcel number, Assessor’s parcel map, and Google Map are 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, multi-unit apartments, duplexes, triplexes, commercial buildings, vacant land and over 200 timeshares. To participate in this auction an advanced deposit of $5,000 plus a $35 non-refundable bid deposit processing fee is due by May 5, 2017 at 5 p.m., and you must pre-register to bid.
