Over 150 properties up for auction in Ulster County

KINGSTON – A total of 151 parcels will be up for auction by Ulster County on April 13. They have been listed as a result of the foreclosure of tax liens and have been unredeemed for over three years.

The number of properties is up 28 percent over last year’s initial list, but less than the 712 in 1998 and 466 that were for sale in 2000.

The Town of Wawarsing leads the list with 24 parcels compared to last year’s 26. Shandaken has 17 properties followed by the towns of Saugerties and Ulster with 16 each. The towns of Woodstock, Hardenburgh and Denning and the Village of New Paltz have no properties at the auction.     

The Town of Saugerties, with 16 properties, tops the total outstanding dollars with $588,370 of which one parcel on Quarry Road accounts for $442,112 alone.

The second largest single parcel is in the Town of Kingston at $229,913.

County Comptroller Elliot Auerbach said he expects “a good portion of these properties will be redeemed before April’s auction.”

The auction will be held at SUNY Ulster in Stone Ridge at Vandelyn Hall on Wednesday, April 13 at 9:30 a.m.
