June 8, 2011 – The City of Springfield will, once again, team up with Daniel J. Flynn & Co., of Quincy, to hold its second auction of 2011. The portfolio for this auction, which had initially been scheduled for June 21, 2011, includes twenty-seven (27) properties in tax-title possession and is now scheduled for Tuesday, July 19, 2011. Registration begins at 5:00 P.M., and the auction will begin promptly at 6:00 P.M. The ballroom-style Auction will be conducted at
Springfield City Hall located at 36 Court Street, Springfield, MA.
The twenty-seven (27) city-owned property portfolio consists of eleven residential homes, residential and commercial lots and one commercial property. Open houses will be conducted on Monday, July 18th, at the sites of the residential homes and the single commercial property. Times for entry are to be determined and will be published on the auctioneer’s website, at
www.flynnauctions.com once finalized.
A 5% buyer’s premium covers the auction fee so the cost is added to each high bid, which represents the final sale price. Anyone interested is strongly encouraged to visit these properties at the open houses scheduled for Monday, July 18th. Auction participation requires bidders to come prepared with a certified or bank check, made out to themselves, in the amount of Five
Thousand Dollars ($5,000.00) per property.
Interested parties should check the city’s Auction Info web page or the Daniel J. Flynn & Co., website www.flynnauctions.com for specific open house schedules and property information.
