Property Auction Site: CivicSource Auctioneer
Efficient and Cost Effective
With budget reductions and declining tax revenues, taxing authorities across the country are facing the incredibly complex task of finding ways to collect more taxes, without spending additional budgeted revenue. Archon’s CivicSource® Platform, which includes CivicSource® Auctioneer, is funded solely through a small collection fee passed on to the delinquent taxpayer.
Collaboration and Participation
Due to our targeted advertising, relationships with investment groups, and worldwide access to the Internet, CivicSource® Auctioneer, operating a property auction site at www.civicsource.com, offers significantly higher auction participation than traditional, analog auctions on the courthouse steps. When you have thousands of people, rather than hundreds, accessing your property auction site for a tax sale, more properties are sold.
Transparent and Open
We, at Archon, are believers in the open government movement that stresses using technology to encourage more participation and collaboration within the government.
By moving the sale process online and making it universally accessible to the public, it creates an invaluable sense of transparency and efficiency in government, and eliminates the association of any perceived bias.
CivicSource® Auctioneer invites participants to take part in the civic process from the convenience of their own computers. For those without computers and in compliance with public access laws relative to tax sale, Archon can set up kiosks in a public or municipal building for use during the hours of the tax sale.
