After months of delay caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the City of Richmond has released more than 100 tax delinquent properties to be sold at public auction.  Funds raised will go to pay back taxes accumulated over years of non-payment.  Although the City has been very patient to allow property owners the opportunity to redeem these properties during the pandemic, the backlog of properties has made it necessary to move forward with the process.

The public real estate auction will be held Wednesday, August 19 at 2 p.m. and will include residential homes, building lots and commercial properties. This auction is presented by Accelerated Tax Sales, a division of Motleys, in conjunction with the City of Richmond and Taxing Authority Consulting Services (TACS), and will be held at Motleys headquarters at 3600 Deepwater Terminal Road, Richmond, VA 23234 and online at motleys.com/rvataxsale.

The public can register to bid online at motleys.com or in person at Motleys headquarters prior to the sale. Bidders are encouraged to register 24 hours before the event to limit personal contact. Masks are required to attend the live auction, and social distancing guidelines will be enforced. Check-in will begin at 12:30 at outdoor stations.  Online bidding is available and encouraged with registration and deposits due 24 hours prior to sale.  

For those with questions about the sales or about how to bid live or online at a property auction, a Tax Sale Seminar will be held on Wednesday, August 12 at 4 PM at Motleys headquarters. The seminar will be also be shown live on Facebook.com/motleysassetdisposition, where it can be viewed at any time after the seminar.
