City of Gretna to Conduct Online Tax Title Sale
JEFFERSON PARISH, LA – October 22, 2012 – On October 24, 2012 the City of Gretna will host a tax title sale at www.CivicSource.com. By hosting the sale online, bidders that would not normally be able to attend the auction in person are still able to participate.
Currently over 80 properties are slated to go to sale ranging in price from $250 to $3,700. This sale is open to the general public. Free registration and a list of available properties are now available at www.civicsource.com.
A tax title sale is the sale of properties that have delinquent taxes due. The tax titles for these properties are sold to the public for the amount of the delinquent taxes due, plus any accrued interest, penalties, costs and other statutory impositions. The tax title sale is a low-bid wins style auction in which the property is sold to the purchaser willing to bid on the least percent ownership interest in the property.
Winning bidders of the tax sale are expected to pay for their purchases within 72 hours of the close of the auction. Payment must be made in one installment and all sales are final.
These auctions and all future tax sales can be viewed on the CivicSource.com website. Using the convenient search options, bidders can set the parameters for any property that falls within their interests and budget.
