    What happens to the unsold properties after the auction? Is there any way I can buy them?

    1. Hi Hunter, Properties that are unsold from our tax sales are reoffered at a subsequent tax sale unless they are redeemed. We do not sell parcels over the counter, outside of the tax sale process. You may contact the current owner to inquire about buying the parcels from them. You can contact us at 909-387-8308 or visit our website at Thank you for your inquiry.
