34 Properties up for auction

Binghamton, NY – Broome County Executive Debbie Preston and Real Property Director David Hamlin announced details of the upcoming auction of tax foreclosure properties in Broome County.

The auction is Saturday, February 20, at the Holiday Inn, Binghamton (2-8 Hawley Street) starting at 10:00 am.

Auction bidders must register between 8:30 AM and 10:00 AM that morning.

“These property auctions have been very successful recently as it gives people a chance to purchase a property for a great price,” says Broome County Executive Debbie Preston.  “Not only are these properties going back on the tax rolls, but new owners will help clean up blight in our neighborhoods when they renovate their new properties.”

This weekend, the County will auction off more than 30 properties.

These properties include single family homes, multi-family homes, commercial lots, vacant lots and more.

Last year, the County sold 45 properties, making a profit of nearly $208,600.

“We want to remind people that all properties are sold as is,” says Real Property Director Dave Hamlin.  “We encourage people to look carefully at each parcel before bidding on it because it may have code violations that will need to be addressed by the new owner.”

Housing built before 1978 may contain lead based paint.  Lead from paint chips and dust can pose health hazards if not managed properly.

The Broome County Health Department has information available at each County Auction for prospective bidders to review.

Maps of each parcel are available for viewing in the office of the Broome County Real Property Tax Department, second floor in the County Office Building, 44 Hawley Street, Binghamton, NY, during regular business hours.
