Marion County Surplus Real Estate Auction
After a parcel has gone through the annual tax sale and is not purchased, the county takes a lien on the property. Surplus Auctions are held to sell these parcels. To sell the parcels, the county takes title in Marion County’s name by virtue of a tax title deed and removes all the taxes owing. The property is appraised and a minimum bid amount established. When property is purchased from the County, there is no redemption period. The parcel is yours as soon as you receive the recorded deed. The property is conveyed by quitclaim deed, which the county records. The next Surplus Real Estate Auction is on March 22, 2013.
