Despite a global pandemic, sales and transfers continue. We have posted 2020 real estate transfers from Janaury to June 2020. Click here to access the list: 2020 Sales and Transfers
The City of Auburn compiles these sales and transfers throughout the year. The list provided includes all known sales and transfers. On the list you will find good open market sales but also other real estate transfers that have no, or low, consideration paid. Included in the list are: open market sales, private party sales, corrective deeds, family transfers, divorce transfers, package sales, inter-LLC transfers, foreclosures and more. In short, any transfer where ownership of a property was changed or corrected. Real estate transactions that included more than one property are highlighted in yellow on the spreadsheet (aka package sales or aggregate sales).
While some sales and other types of transfers are not considered 'arms-length' this list does not report a finding whether any sale or transfer was deemed to be an arms-length-transaction.
Most of the sales and transfers on the list comes from the monthly State of Maine Transfer Tax Declarations. The Assessing Division regards the information to be correct, but does not certify the data. Any user of the sales and transfer list is responsible for their own verification of transfer terms and conditions.
