St. James going digital for delinquent property purchases

CONVENT — St. James Parish Government has updated its adjudicated property auction processes by implementing the technologies of CivicSource, a leading online auctioneer of tax-delinquent real estate.

At 6 p.m. Tuesday (May 21), CivicSource will hold a community information session on purchasing adjudicated property in St. James Parish.

The event is free and open to the public and will be held at the Convent Annex, located at 5800 LA Highway 44.

Comprehensive training on all aspects of purchasing adjudicated properties, including how to acquire title insurance, will be covered.

Organizers hope this helps the Parish restore significant, annually recurring revenues to St. James from taxes that had previously gone unpaid.

“The partnership between CivicSource and the Parish Council is a win-win situation for the Parish,” St. James Parish President Timothy Roussel said.

“The online auctions will return properties to the tax roll, eliminate blight in our communities and rural areas and make adjudicated real estate available to the public at a reasonable price.”

St. James’ new, technology-driven property auction will take place online at CivicSource.com, allowing bidders to conduct property research and participate in the auction from any internet-ready device whether at home, work or a public facility.

CivicSource.com offers numerous innovative purchaser tools including access to auction legal research, integrated Google and GIS parcel maps, a proxy bidding feature, customizable watch lists and a sliding close function preventing last-second, online bid sniping.

Visit CivicSource.com to view a complete listing of qualified, adjudicated properties or to nominate properties for auction through a deposit of $850.

The properties are listed for $0 plus closing costs. Commercial and residential properties are available. To RSVP for the upcoming information session on purchasing adjudicated properties, visit events.CivicSource.com.
