Several properties in Deschutes County will be available for bid in an auction of foreclosed properties. Deschutes County Property Specialist Teresa Rozic says all of the properties will be sold "as -is" and there is a minimum bid. "This year, we're offering three vacant lots in Bend. One in the Sunriver--south area. I have a property in La Pine that has a very nice shop building on it. Then I have a beautiful 5 acre lot in Redmond that has a view of Smith Rock with a home that the former owner started many years ago, but never finished." Rozic says there are other properties that are known as "residuals" and tend to be odd shaped. The auction is Wednesday, May 16th at 10 a.m. in the County Building at 1300 Wall Street. She recommends you register early if you are planning to attend the auction; and you must have cash or a cashier's check to purchase the property.
