An audio Bidders’ Seminar, terms and conditions, and the full catalog can be viewed at https://aarauctions.com/servlet/Search.do?auctionId=3719.
“Regardless that this is a ‘virtual’ auction, interested bidders should ensure they’ve done their homework: personally viewed the property or properties, checked for outstanding liens and assessments like water and sewer, and are familiar with the auction terms and conditions, particularly the taxes and fees for which they will be immediately responsible upon placement of a successful bid or bids,” Buck reminded.
Most properties up for auction can be viewed from public roadways, as guided property showings remain to be determined at this time.
Potential bidders who complete the online registration form must submit it by Monday, October 19. They will be given the opportunity to begin submitting bids today, Monday, September 21.
The live auction begins at 9:30 a.m. on October 20, going in alphabetical order of the County’s 15 townships, starting with Bethel and running through Lumberland on the 20th and Mamakating through Tusten on the 21st.
All sales are subject to final approval by the Sullivan County Legislature.
