Clay County is auctioning off its bought-out homes in Oakport, some at remarkably cheap prices. 7 buildings were auctioned off today. The Oakport buildings were bought out by the county for flood protection. One home sold today for just $250. But all homes required a $5,000 deposit to ensure they'll be moved by June 30th of next year.
Greg Anderson – Sales Associate: “The county sold homes by sealed bids about 10 years ago after the '97 flood. We just thought this was the best way to do it since we are going to have so many ongoing sales on a monthly basis.”
The next sealed bid auction is scheduled for December 15th.
