JACKSON - Tomorrow marks the beginning of two online auctions of tax-forfeited properties in Humphreys and Sunflower Counties. Mississippians have the opportunity to bid on 129 parcels in Humphreys County valued at an estimated $759,000, and 146 parcels in Sunflower County valued at an estimated $468,953.
The bidding process opens at 8 a.m. on Wednesday, September 9, 2020, and all bids must be received no later than 11:59 p.m. on Wednesday, October 7, 2020. Interested parties must register online at sos.ms.gov before placing a bid, and bids may only be submitted through the Secretary of State’s online auction portal. The portal grants access to property details, such as market value and parcel locations.
Once bids are placed, successful bidders will be notified as soon as possible via e-mail. Payment of the bid amount must be made within 5 to 7 business days of the e-mail notification.
Buyers are also permitted to pay a “Buy It Now” price on any parcel, which allows them to purchase a property immediately instead of waiting until the end of the auction.
