Auction properties posted.                                             Standing room only at the auction.

Bidding started with the first property, a lot in the town of Waimea. Incredibly there was only 1 bidder and he got it for the base price. The next property was a different story. It was a lot at 2224 Kuai Road in Poipu approximately across from Brenneckes Beach (but one lot in). There were a lot of bidders standing but they dropped out 1 by 1 until there were 2. They battle back and forth until the high bidder, a local appraiser, won the bid with the sales price of $455,000. Still a good price for the location of the lot. Unlike a foreclosure auction bidding increments for the tax auction had to be raised a $1000.00 or higher.


Most of the other properties had just a couple bidders. two properties had no bidders at all. And buyer beware their is usually a reason for this. Sheila Morales and myself had a good time exchanging insights and speculations with other spectators. I'm looking forward to the next auction and maybe might just bid for a client or myself.

It certainly was interesting to watch it unfold.  We should probably mention that most of the properties went for several times the amount of the delinquent taxes.
