Treasurer's Office Announces Annual Property Auction to be Held May 17

Written By Editor on 5/8/14 | 5/8/14

Schoharie County Treasurer William Cherry has announced that he will conduct the county’s annual public auction of tax-foreclosed properties on Saturday, May 17th.  The auction will be held on the front steps of the County Courthouse in the Village of Schoharie, and bidding will begin promptly at 10:00 a.m. on that day.  Copies of the auction catalog with full color photographs and tax maps are available at no charge from the County Treasurer’s Office on the first floor of the County Office Building, or the catalog is available online at: SchoharieCounty-NY.gov.  Bidder registration will open up at 8:30 a.m. on the day of the sale, although interested buyers can pre-register during regular office hours at the Treasurer’s Office in order to save time on May 17th.  Terms of sale describing the auction process are included in the catalog.

48 tax-foreclosed properties will be sold to the highest bidders, and all delinquent taxes, liens, mortgages, and prior judgments have been wiped out so that the successful bidders will be purchasing these properties free and clear.  These are now County-owned surplus parcels and there is no longer any opportunity for the prior owners to make a claim against the property.  There is no buyer’s premium, and there are no minimum bids. 

The catalog of properties includes single family homes as well as abandoned farmland along with vacant land ranging from several one acre lots to a large 74.5 acre wooded parcel.  There are also some commercial buildings included with lots of potential, and several older mobile homes on their own nice homesites.  Some of the auction parcels have beautiful, panoramic mountain views, and two of the parcels are adjacent to State lands which make them especially attractive to hunters.

For more information, please contact the County Treasurer’s Office at (518) 295-8386.  Office hours are Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
