Berrien County Property Auctions Start Next Week

The first of five property auctions held by Berrien County will be next Tuesday at The DANK in Benton Harbor. County Treasurer Bret Witkowski says they have 318 properties available this year, a slight decrease from a record number of parcels offered at auctions in 2013. All the properties have been foreclosed upon by Witkowski's office.


He expects the numbers will keep getting smaller.


The auction will require a $500 deposit to bid, but if you don't win any properties, that money is refunded. Witkowski started using the deposit last year, and it helped greatly in weeding out people with no real intention to buy. The auction on July 15 will start with registration at 8 am and the bidding at 9:30 am. A second auction will be at the Niles Courthouse on July 22.
