Montesano, WA – Residents will have an opportunity to purchase any of 40 Tax Title properties next month, but with a change.
The Grays Harbor County Tax Title Department officially announced that these property sales will be different on Friday, September 20th at 9am than they have been in the past.
Instead of bidders coming to Montesano to bid on the properties live, the 2019 Tax Title Auction will be done online..
The Board of County Commissioners and County Treasurer chose to switch from their traditional oral auction for bids to an online auction facilitated by bid4assets.com.
Only bids submitted over the Internet will be accepted.
Grays Harbor County will not be registering bidders, accepting deposits, or accepting bids and all questions regarding registration will be directed to bid4assets.com.
Notable properties on the upcoming auction include parcels 317090934001 and 317091621002, which abut the South Aberdeen levee and have been the source of contention for some residents as homeless residents have been reported moving to the adjoining area following the closure of the River City homeless encampment.
Also included is a stretch of land in Grayland with beach access worth 85,000 and a minimum bid of 21,250, as well as at least two properties featuring homes in disrepair.
Pre-registration is required to participate. Register on-line at www.bid4assets.com.
The auction will be held on Friday, September 20th, 2019 from 9am to approximately 12pm.
