Today was scheduled to be a busy day for auctions of Teton County foreclosed properties, with five properties worth more than $14 million on the block, but none of them made it to the steps of the courthouse.
A few days before Christmas the Davies-Reid building on the Town Square had its auction rescheduled for Jan. 19, 2010. Opening bid is $2,763,715.67. It was announced yesterday the other four properties, all with the same owner, scheduled for auction today were cancelled due to a bankruptcy filing.
These four properties included:
• A Four Seasons unit with an opening bid of $1,792,771.
• A second Four Seasons unit with an opening bid of $1,457,115.
• A Granite Ridge (Teton Village) building site with an opening bid of $2,279,297.
• A Teton Village home with an opening bid of $5,613,885.
