21 properties sold at tax sale
Nearly one-third of the properties exposed for sale sold during tuesday’s upset tax sale.
74 properties were brought to the sale for non-payment of 2017 property taxes and 21 were purchased.
Properties sold at upset sale come with any mortgages or liens intact.
The big ticket property was located on Rt. 337 in Watson Township and owned by a woman from North Carolina, online assessment records show. Those records indicate the parcel is 10 acres in size and is listed as “vacant” with “no buildings.”
The upset price – the cost incurred by the Tax Claim office to prepare the property for sale – was $1,111 but sold for $29,500.
The funds in excess of the upset price will go to paying the back taxes on a given parcel.
Another Watson Township parcel – eight acres – owned by the same individual sold for $15,000.
A Triumph Township parcel – 3680 Rt. 127 and 6.8 acres – sold for $15,500.
Two other properties – the residence at 576 National Forge Road ($10,000) and 3246 Oil Creek Road ($11,000 and 6.41 acres) hit the $10,000 level.
None of the properties up for sale in the City of Warren sold.
These properties not sold move to judicial sale in 2020 when will be sold free and clear of liens and mortgages.
