READING, Pa., May 26, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Bid4Assets, a leading online marketplace for distressed real estate auctions, has been selected by the City of Reading, Pennsylvania's Redevelopment Authority to host a special sale for four properties in need of revitalization.

"The goal with any sale of this type is to find buyers interested in taking ownership of these properties and restoring them to productive use for the community," said Jamal Abodalo, executive director of the Redevelopment Authority. "Bid4Assets has a great track record with Berks County in selling foreclosure and tax foreclosures with a local buyer focus. That's why we've chosen to work with them on this group of properties."

The sale will open to bidders on June 15 from 10:00 AM ET to 2:00 PM ET. All four available properties will start at a $1 minimum bid with no reserve price, meaning that the property will sell to the highest bidder regardless of price. Interested bidders will be required to register a free Bid4Assets account and fund a $500 refundable bid deposit in order to participate. Deposits are due by June 8th.

Buyers must secure necessary building permits within 90 days of settlement. A residential certificate of occupancy must be obtained within 365 days after securing the building permits. If buyers don't meet the required terms, ownership will revert back to the Redevelopment Authority. Full terms are available on the Bid4Assets website.

Bid4Assets pioneered online foreclosure auctions in Pennsylvania by conducting the first-ever virtual sheriff's sale in the state's history for Montgomery County in 2020. Today Bid4Assets conducts tax foreclosure auctions and sheriff's sales for counties throughout the state, including Berks County, and across the country.

"It is a great honor to work with the City of Reading, Pennsylvania's Redevelopment Authority to find socially responsible buyers for these properties," said Bid4Assets President Jesse Loomis, "Our focus is to find homebuyers who look at a blighted home and see the potential for what it could be after renovations. I am confident in our ability to provide a sale for the City of Reading that is more efficient, has more qualified bidders and best of all, comes at no cost to the city."
