Q = Questions

A = Answers (responses in BLUE ink)


Q1:  What is the specific address and location of the Nicholtown vacant parcel?

A1: The address “Nichol Street” noted on the tax map included in the Bid Packet is the only address identifier available. The parcel is located between Evergreen Place Apartments and the single-family  houses on Roosevelt Avenue.

Q2:  What is the actual area of the properties on Merry Dale Lane?

  1. For example, lot #18939 is listed in the TGHA notice as 1.08 acres, but appears to be more like a quarter of an acre. Lot numbers 18937 & 18938 also appear smaller than their listed areas, which are 1.38 and 1.17 acres, respectively.


    In 1997, the Army Corp of Engineers assessed this property and delineated 3 small areas of wetland. Are the underground springs still active?


    Is the $18,000 Fair Market Value shown on the County Tax website the market value for each of the Merry Dale properties offered, or for all 3 properties together? If $18,000 is for all 3 properties, what is the Fair Market Value of lot #18939?


    Is there a minimum bid on any of the properties listed for auction?


    RE: 18939 Merry Dale Lane - Was "Wet Land" specifically mentioned in the description of any comps performed in order to value this lot?

A2a: Acreages listed are estimates ONLY as listed within County Tax Map information. 

A2b: TGHA cannot answer this question. Each property listed will be sold in "As-is, Where-is" condition. 

A2c: FMV of $18,000 is per property as listed within County Tax Map information. 

A2d: There is no starting or minimum bids. Properties will be sold to highest bidder. 

A2e: The "estimated" value of all properties inclusive of the Notice of Public Sale was taken from Greenville County Real Property website. No comps have been performed. 

Q3: Would the financing for the home need to be a FHA loan or cash? Or what are the options for financing?

Q4: My daughter did not preregister to inspect the houses, is she allowed to put her sealed bid in on any or all the properties?

A4: Site visits for the purpose of assessing each house to prepare a bid was optional; therefore, your daughter can submit a sealed bid.

Q5: Do you have information on each property? What may need to be repaired (electrical, AC, roof, foundation, etc) if so could you please share?

A5: Site visits were made available to offer an inspection opportunity to all interested bidders. Each property listed will be sold in “As-is, Where-is” condition.
