A partially developed cul-de-sac peppered around the end by 37 vacant lots will go on the auction block May 22 at the Ontario County real estate auction. The parcels will be sold together for one bid price, according to the catalog for the annual live auction of tax-foreclosed properties.
County Treasurer Gary Baxter said some people expressed interest in buying the parcels in Creek View Trail in Farmington. Each lot is 21-by-55 feet, assessed at full-market value of $100. Taxes due on purchase will be $2.98 per parcel.
Also to be auctioned off are 23 additional parcels throughout the county. Those include a commercial lot on Route 332 in Farmington and an industrial vacant lot on Hannan Parkway in the town of Victor. Other properties include a mobile home and vacant residential lot in Bristol; two single-family homes in Bloomfield and a number of properties either vacant or with houses in Farmington, the town of Geneva, Gorham, Manchester, the village and town of Phelps, South Bristol and Victor.
Professionals with Auctions International will hold a meeting for interested bidders on May 15 at 7 p.m. at the Ontario County Safety Training Facility in Hopewell, where the auction will be the following Wednesday at 7 p.m. The annual event generally has about 20 tax-foreclosed properties for sale and draws a crowd. Bidders are urged to rely on their own inspection and research of each property they are interested in, including revision of public records.
