NEARLY 50 PROPERTIES TO BE AUCTIONED IN DECEMBER
Part of Strategy to Reduce 10,000 Blighted Properties in 3 Years
NEW ORLEANS, LA—In keeping with Mayor Mitch Landrieu’s commitment to eradicate 10,000 blighted or vacant properties by 2014, 46 blighted properties will be sold at a Sheriff sale auction on Tuesday, December 6, 2011. The auction will take place at 12 noon in the first floor lobby of the Civil District Court.
The Landrieu administration has prioritized code lien foreclosure Sheriff sale auctions in its blight eradication strategy as it is the most cost-effective way to seize and then return blighted properties back into commerce. Unlike tax sales and sales of adjudicated properties, Sheriff sales have no redemptive period..
The starting bid for each property is generally two-thirds of its appraised value. Upon successfully bidding on the property, the successful bidder must immediately provide the Sheriff’s office ten percent (10%) of the purchase price paid in cash, money order, cashiers or certified check (no personal checks are accepted), plus their name, address, phone number, marital status and social security number.
“We continue to make great progress in our fight against blight by auctioning off these blighted properties,” said Mayor Landrieu. “Sheriff’s sales are really important tool for us in both bringing properties back into commerce and for collecting blight liens.”
It has been just over one year since Mayor Landrieu announced a new, aggressive blight strategy aimed at reducing blighted properties by 10,000 by 2014. Since then, the City has conducted 28,024 inspections, demolished 2,280 blighted units, moved over 1000 properties to code lien foreclosure, and collected over $1.5 million in blight liens and fines. The City has also held 28 BlightStat performance management meetings.
