Broome County Property Auction

Binghamton, NY – Broome County Executive Debbie Preston and Real Property Director David Hamlin announced details of the upcoming auction of tax foreclosure properties in Broome County.

The auction is Saturday, November 21, at the Holiday Inn, Binghamton (2-8 Hawley Street) starting at 10:00 am.

Auction bidders must register between 8:30 AM and 10:00 AM that morning.

“We’ve heard from previous buyers what great deals they get at an auction like this,” says Broome County Executive Debbie Preston.  “This auction has homes that would be a great starter home for a young couple, or a place to start a business and it helps Broome County because these properties are put back on the tax rolls.”

Next weekend, the County will auction off 25 properties, including single family homes, multi-family homes, vacant lots and former businesses, including the former DMV on Clinton Street in Binghamton.

Open houses on some of those properties will be this Friday, Saturday and Sunday.

“These auctions are great because it gives people a chance to own property and put their own personal touches on them during rehabilitation, which helps to clean up our neighborhoods,” says Real Property Director Dave Hamlin. 

All properties in the auction are sold as is.

Last year, the County sold 108 properties, netting nearly $570,000.

Maps of each parcel are available for viewing in the office of the Broome County Real Property Tax Department, second floor in the County Office Building, 44 Hawley Street, Binghamton, NY, during regular business hours.
