Posted: Thursday, April 20, 2017 10:57 am

TWENTYNINE PALMS — More Than 2,000 tax-defaulted properties will offered for sale when San Bernardino County Tax Collector Oscar Valdez hold its annual on-line auction of tax-defaulted properties beginning May 13, with staggered closing times from through May 19.

“The benefit of a tax sale is getting tax-defaulted properties back into tax paying status to fund key public services including education, police and fire protection, social and public health services,” Valdez said.

 “Winning bidders have the opportunity to buy real estate at potentially reduced prices.”

This tax sale auction consists of more than 2,000 properties that have been tax-defaulted for five or more years, and will include both newly-offered and re-offered properties.

Opening bids start as low as $800, and the highest bid wins. Each bidder alone bears the responsibility of due diligence to inspect, research, and investigate the properties offered for sale.

Limited tax information including parcel number, Assessor’s parcel map, and Google Map are available for viewing on-line at Property is sold as is and purchasers are encouraged to complete a thorough due diligence review prior to bidding.
