Vermilion County, as Trustee, has completed its tax deed proceedings on real estate properties that were delinquent for 2019 and mobile homes that were delinquent for 2020 and prior real estate taxes. Vermilion County, as Trustee, will now offer for sale approximately 434 real estate properties and 98 mobile homes at a public auction at the Jewell Whyte VFW Post #728, 8 Pine Street, Danville, Illinois at 6:00 p.m. on Monday, December 11, 2023. Bidding will start at $750.00 per item. Bidders are encouraged to attend the auction sale. While written bids are acceptable, the Auction Department of the Vermilion County Tax Agent’s Office, P.O. Box 96, Edwardsville, Illinois 62025, must receive them by 5:00 p.m. on Monday, December 4, 2023. Full payment is required with all pre-written bids. The highest written bid received will be announced before the auctioneer opens the oral bidding. Each item will sell to the highest bidder. The sale of these lots and mobile homes should be a major benefit to both the Taxing Districts and neighboring property owners. This sale will place the real estate and mobile homes into the hands of individuals who have an interest in owning them. Vermilion County, as Trustee, hopes that these new owners will both maintain the property and mobile homes and keep the taxes paid. By eliminating abandoned properties, the appearance of the neighborhood should improve and the value of adjoining properties should increase.
