For Immediate Release

Champaign County, as Trustee, has completed their tax deed proceedings on real estate properties that were delinquent for 2011 and mobile homes that were delinquent for 2012 and prior real estate taxes. The County, as Trustee, will now offer for sale the real estate and mobile homes obtained to the public. They will offer approximately 16 real estate items and 30 mobile home items through a sealed bid auction sale. All sealed bids must be in the Champaign County Treasurer's Office located in the Brookens Administrative Center, 1776 E. Washington Street, Urbana, Illinois 61802 no later than the close of business on September 11, 2015.

The sale of these lots and mobile homes should be a major benefit to both the Taxing Districts and the neighboring property owners. This sale will place the real estate and mobile homes into the hands of individuals who have an interest in owning them. The County, as Trustee, hopes that these new owners will both maintain the property and the mobile homes and keep the taxes paid. By eliminating abandoned properties, the appearance of the neighborhood should improve and the value of adjoining properties should increase.

The required minimum bid on real estate is $643.00, and on mobile homes is $695.00. All items will be sold to the highest sealed bid received on or before September 11, 2015. Complete bidder's packets and sale catalogs are now available at the Champaign County Treasurer's Office or online at www.iltaxsale.com.

For further sale information, contact the Auction Sale Department of the Champaign County Tax Agent's Office. The telephone number is 1-800-248-2850 or 618-656-5744 or visit us at www.iltaxsale.com. Office hours are 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. Monday through Fridays.
