It’s that time again! Buy a blighted house at the third Absolute Auction for the New Orleans Redevelopment Authority on November 2, 2013.

Property catalog & full details are now available online HERE!

ABSOLUTE AUCTION – Whether you are a future homeowner, builder, Non-Profit organization, or an investor, this is your opportunity to bid on 130± homes and residential lots located throughout the City of New Orleans.  All properties sell Absolute to the highest bidder!

The properties are located in many neighborhoods in New Orleans including Little Woods, West End, Gentilly Terrace, Holy Cross, Read Blvd East, Lakeview, West Lake Forest 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 former 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.

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 Sell Agreement.

Buyer Seminar: The Buyer Seminar will be held on Thursday, October 10, 2013 from 7:00 – 9:00 PM at the Dryades YMCA located at 2220 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd. Free parking on site. Registration begins at 6:30 PM.

Open Houses: Lots are open for view at your leisure and there are 50 ± structures that will be open for inspections before the auction on Saturday, October 12 and Sunday, October 13, 2013  from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM and 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM.  See web site at ameribid.com/nora for specific date and time for each property.

Auction Day: The auction will be held on Saturday, November 2, 2013 at a new venue, the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, Iberville Club Lounge, Loge Level.  To access auction venue, access is off of Girod St., and Dave Dixon Drive (parking is available the day of the auction in Garage Parking lot 2 only, at a cost of $10.00 per vehicle).  Access to the auction is ONLY available through Gate D.  All bags and persons are subject to Mercedes-Benz Superdome access and security procedures.  Attendees will then proceed up the Gate D ramp to enter the auction registration area.  Anyone needing special access assistance will be directed to nearby elevators.  Registration begins at 9:00 AM. The auction will begin at 11:00 AM.

Due to the extensive portfolio of this unique one-day auction event, it is difficult to determine the total time required to complete the auction.  If you are a successful bidder, anticipate approximately an additional hour for completion of the contract process.

UPDATE: The Sale of Surplus Properties auction has been scheduled for May 17th, 2013. View additional information on our surplus property blog page HERE. We now are hosting sale-related documents, including appraisals, City Planning Commission staff reports, and City Council ordinances.

According to our sources at City Hall, the much anticipated sale of surplus properties is becoming closer to a reality and the auction is tentatively scheduled for early May. We’re processing property information that was provided by the city and will have that information available online shortly. In the mean time, here’s what you need to know about how the auction process works.

Keep in mind that most of these properties are potentially eligible for historic tax credits  and the restoration tax abatement program!

SALES PROCESS FOR CITY-OWNED PROPERTY

The City may sell (through public auction) immovable property (real estate) that is no longer needed for public purpose. These particular auctions are different than the Sheriff’s auctions or NORA’s auctions. The process for bringing property any city owned property to auction is lengthy. The steps are as follows:

1. The Department of Property Management, through the Division of Real Estate and Records, locates property that the City is not using. A constituent may bring a request regarding a particular property to the Division and request that it be sold at public auction.

2. If the property is deemed saleable, the requested sale is presented to the Planning Advisory Committee (PAC) for review, comments, and recommendations. If any city department may determine that the property is still needed for public use then the sale will not move forward.

3. If approved by PAC, the requested sale is then submitted to the City Planning Commission (CPC) for approval or denial. CPC may deny, approve, or conditionally approve the auction of a property. CPC may place provisos on the sale of the property, which will require that certain terms and/or obligations are met prior to or as part of the sale.

4. If the sale is approved or conditionally approved with provisos, the property is appraised to determine fair market value.

5. After a value is determined, the auction of the property must be approved by the City Council. An ordinance containing the property description, appraised value, and any provisos set by the CPC is introduced to the City Council.

6. If the Ordinance is passed and approved by the Mayor, an auction date and time is set and an advertisement runs in the Times Picayune Newspaper three times over a span of thirty days. The property may have an “open house” during this period.

7. At least thirty days after the ordinance has been signed by the Mayor, the property auction is held. The starting bid is the fair market value of the property. Auctions are held in the City Council Chambers at City Hall.

8. A winning bidder must deposit 10% of the winning bid amount with the Real Estate and Records Division (Room 5W06) within one (1) hour of the completion of the auction. The deposit must be in cash, certified check, or money order and is NON-REFUNDABLE. If a deposit is not timely made, the property is offered to the second highest bidder.

8. The act of sale is sent to the City Law Department for review and signature. The purchaser typically has 120 days to coordinate with the Law Department to complete the sale. If there is a proviso attached to the property sale by the CPC, it will become part of the act of sale. The remainder of the payment, as well as costs associated with promulgation of the ordinance and advertising are all due at the signing of the act of sale.

The Pierre A. Capdau school building, at 3821 Franklin Avenue,  is up for public auction through the Orleans Parish School Board on Thursday, November 8, 2012. At almost 43,000 sq. ft. sitting on a lot of over 81,000 sq. ft., the impressive property presents an opportunity for redevelopment in Edgewood Park.

This magnificent historic school building is one of the oldest buildings in the Edgewood Park neighborhood, located adjacent to Gentilly Terrace, and one of the most recognizable as well. The massive edifice was built in 1922 in an eclectic Beaux-Arts style by well-liked and influential City architect Edgar A. Christy. It is located within an eligible National Register Historic District (Edgewood Park) and is an excellent representation of early 20th century public school architecture in New Orleans. Many original details can be found throughout the interior of the building, such as moldings, tiles, windows, and transoms, and the rough stucco and quoining on the exterior are also well-preserved.

The New Orleans Free School, located at 3601 Camp Street, is up for public auction through the Orleans Parish School Board on Thursday, November 8, 2012. At 25,000 sq. ft. sitting on a lot of over 30,000 sq. ft., it presents a tremendous opportunity for redevelopment.

The school building has a long and interesting history. Originally constructed in 1903 as the Frank T. Howard Public School #2, it long served as a local elementary school for the Uptown neighborhood in which it sat. In the 1970s, in the midst of education reform and demographic restructuring, the large building became home to the New Orleans Free School, an experimental alternative school founded by Robert Ferris. Originally independent, the Free School gradually came under the jurisdiction of the Orleans Parish public school system and operated as such until the destruction and displacement of 2005. The school then briefly operated as a charter until its closure in 2009. It has sat vacant since.

The building itself is imposing yet graceful. Italianate details appear throughout, most impressively in the massive cornice running along the roof’s full perimeter. Many original details remain, and the building’s location along Camp Street is in one of the most desirable neighborhoods in the city.

This magnificent historic school building is up for public auction through the Orleans Parish School Board on Thursday, November 8, 2012. At 25,000 sq. ft. sitting on a lot of over 30,000 sq. ft., it presents an opportunity for many different mixed-use developments.
