what is realtor to the rescue
What is Realtor to the Rescue?
  • REALTOR to the Rescue is a program developed in 2011 by NOCBOR and the Office of the Oakland County Treasurer that connects the concierge-style professionalism and customer service of licensed REALTORS with families looking for a home who are less familiar with the property tax foreclosure process.
  • The County Treasurer’s Office conducts two live auctions each year in accordance with the General Property Tax Act. Purchases require careful due diligence to identify all potential issues with properties!
mission statement
Mission Statement

Realtor to the Rescue will partner the Treasurer’s Office with area Realtors to connect families in need with suitable homes from the Oakland County Land Sale.

Some commercial properties will be included; focus is on placing families and new businesses who will plant roots and become part of the community.

Selling properties pays commissions and recovers delinquent property taxes, interest and fees.

partial list of issues with tax foreclosed properties
Partial List of Issues with Tax Foreclosed Properties
  • Title Insurance and Title Issues – Title companies and underwriters have required additional quiet title actions and due process certification for properties purchased at auction.
  • Special Assessments – Special assessments, including for utilities or sidewalks, survive the property tax foreclosure process and remain in effect for their natural life, or the years remaining on the special assessment.
  • Environmental – Oakland County makes no representations regarding the condition of the property, which must be carefully researched by Realtor and/or buyer.
  • Zoning – Is the property condemned for demolition? You want to start a restaurant but the property is zoned locally as residential only. Check with your local city, village or township for any and all issues related to zoning and the status of the property.
  • Many others – The tax foreclosure process is almost three years, so many of the properties we auction have been neglected for at least that long. A satisfied customer will be one who is not surprised.
