Be Aware!

  • These properties present a high element of liability risk to Albany County due to their condition; therefore the County has not foreclosed on these properties and does not show these properties or permit anyone access to these properties.
  • We strongly encourage any bidder to review the property files and to investigate the property as thoroughly as possible.

For more details, please read the terms and conditions

Additional Notes

Some things to consider before bidding…

  • Do not bid unless you can pay the full amount immediately if you are chosen.
  • Buildings and lots are sold AS IS—no guarantee of condition;
  • If you have not read the property folder, do not bid;
  • Eviction of occupants is the responsibility of the bidder after closing;
  • Zoning and planning—prior use does not guarantee zoning after purchase;
  • Past codes violations

Important financial considerations:

  • Current water and sewer bills;
  • Current year tax bills—school and property taxes
  • General municipal charges
