Jasper County will be auctioning off real estate properties and mobile homes in a sealed-bid auction. They will auction off approximately 11 properties and 4 mobile homes. The properties being auctioned were delinquent for 2012 and the mobile homes were delinquent for 2013 and prior taxes.
By selling these lots and homes, Jasper County is hoping to place these properties into the hands of those that will maintain the properties and will keep the taxes paid. Also, this sell will eliminate abandoned properties and will, thereby, improve the appearance of the neighborhood. The value of neighboring properties should also increase.
All sealed bids are required to be in the Jasper County Treasurer’s Office by the end of business hours on September 30th. A minimum bid of $805.00 on real estate and $845.00 on mobile homes are also required. The items will be sold to the highest sealed bidder received by September 30th. Bidder packets and sale catalogs are available at the Jasper County Treasurer’s Office or at www.iltaxsale.com. The Jasper County Treasurer’s Office is located in the Jasper County Courthouse at 204 W. Washington St in Newton.
