Davison County received a pair of bids for properties taken for tax deed amounting to a grand total of ... $600.
Of the five properties on the auction, two of them received formal bids and there were just a few interested parties at the auction, which was held Thursday morning in the entryway of the Davison County Courthouse in Mitchell.
A $500 bid was received from Aaron Gerlach on a property at 219 N. Second St. in Ethan, and a $100 bid from Doug Carlson was received for Lot 7 on Bonnie Court in Perry Township. In each instance, the prospective buyers were the only bidders.
Both of the properties are subject to the county's commissioners accepting the bids, and the commissioners could deny bids if they don't feel they received an acceptable price, according to real estate auctioneer Ralph Kiner.
A third property, a home located at 708 W. Sixth Ave. in Mitchell, received a $500 bid, but the bid was later rescinded and no purchase agreement was reached.
The two lots to not receive bids were Lot 31 in The Island subdivision in the northwest part of Mitchell, located at 3001 Bills Beach Drive, and the west 56 feet of an outlot located in the 100 block of West 15th Avenue in Mitchell.
The commissioners approved the properties being assessed in July before being sold, and the county made the homes and properties available for viewing in recent months.
Some of the properties have special assessments on them that will have to be paid to the county upon the sale of the property. If any liens or judgements exist against the property, the buyer will inherit those.
