ABSOLUTE AUCTION – Whether you are a future homeowner, builder, Non-Profit organization, or an investor, this is your opportunity to bid on 125± homes and residential lots located throughout the New Orleans area.  All properties sell Absolute to the highest bidder!

The properties are located in many neighborhoods in New Orleans including Bywater, Broadmoor, Central City, Mid-City, Lakeview, West End, Holy Cross, Bayou St. John, Fairgrounds, and many others.  Be sure to inspect each property before bidding and be prepared to close your purchase within the required 30-day closing period.  All properties are sold in “As-Is, Where-Is” condition.

The New Orleans Redevelopment Authority (NORA), in its effort to catalyze neighborhood redevelopment, will auction a number of Road Home and NORA-owned properties in Orleans Parish (certain restrictions apply, see Sample PSA for details).  The single day, live auction is intended to complement continuing neighborhood recovery and to respect the uniqueness of New Orleans’ neighborhoods. The properties included in the auction are generally located in neighborhoods that have seen strong redevelopment following the storm.  The sale of these properties in these neighborhoods will strengthen an already strong private real estate market.

All properties were screened for Lot Next Door eligibility and offered to the Lot Next Door eligible neighbors where they exist. Winning bidders will agree to rehab or complete construction on the property within 12 months (365 days) and keep it code compliant and free from blight.  Bidders may also utilize the property for green space if they are a directly adjacent property owner. For more details on buyer’s requirements and restrictions, please review the Sample Purchase and Sale Agreement. 

Buyer Seminar:
The Buyer Seminar will be held on October 10, 2012 from 7:00-8:00pm at the Dryades YMCA located at 2220 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd. Free parking on site. Registration begins at 6:30pm.

Open Houses:
Lots are open for view at your leisure and many of the homes will be open for inspections before the auction on Saturday, October 13th or Sunday, October 14th, from either 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM or 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM.  Please refer to the auction catalog for specific details.

Auction Day:
The auction will be held on October 27, 2012 in Room 245 of the Ernest Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.  It is located at 900 Convention Center Blvd. Please use the E Concourse Entry. Registration begins at 11:00am. The auction will begin at 1:00pm.

Due to the extensive portfolio of this unique one-day auction event, it is difficult to determine the total time required to complete the sale.  It is anticipated the properties will be sold sequentially, but the Seller and the Auctioneer reserve the right to offer some of the properties in a Buyer’s Choice bidding format.   If you are a successful bidder, anticipate approximately an additional hour for completion of the contract process. 

Limit on Purchases:
No single buyer or buying entity will be able to purchase more than five (5) properties during this auction event.
