Ingham County Real Estate Auction

Bids will be accepted in increments established and announced by the auctioneer starting with the minimum bid. A bid accepted at auction is a legal and binding contract to purchase. No sealed bids will be accepted and the Treasurer reserves the right to reject or accept any or all bids.

TERMS OF THE SALE Ten Percent (10%) of the full purchase price (“Deposit”), with a minimum Deposit of $2,000.00, must be paid by 4:30 PM on the day of the Sale. The full purchase price must be paid within fourteen (14) days of the date of the Land Sale Auction. The purchase price consists of the final bid price, a ten percent (10%) auctioneer fee , a $30.00 per parcel deed recording fee and will also include and require, where applicable, a performance bond to facilitate and guarantee compliance with any existing demolition order. The Deposit and minimum bid must be paid with cash, certified funds or bank cashier’s checks. The balance of the purchase price may be paid for by a ny negotiable instrument, including cash, personal or business check, money orders and travelers checks. The Treasurer may prosecute or sue any purchaser who delivers a check with insufficient funds or fails to consummate a purchase . Bidders who fail to consummate any purchase will forfeit all monies paid and will also be banned from bidding in ALL future Ingham County Treasurer’s Land Sale Auctions. Checks should be made payable to “ Ingham County Treasurer”.

¹For example, if a property is purchased for $25,000.00, the amount to be paid on the day of the Land Sale Auction representing the Deposit is $2,750.00. This is calculated on the basis of a $25,000.00 bid price, plus $2,500.00 auctioneer fee. The total cost of the property to the purchaser would be $27,530.00, including $30.00 for recording the deed. However, the Deposit will be calculated on the total of the bid price and the auctioneer fee only.

Pursuant to MCL 211.78m(2), the Treasurer reserves the right to cancel ANY sale, on ANY parcel, at ANY time, including up to the time of execution and delivery of the deed.
