We have posted a list of 2021 sales to the Assessing Page. The real estate market continues to be robust, we are seeing above normal sales volume and prices. Click here to see the list: 2021 Sales Jan-Sept or visit the Assessing Page.
The City of Auburn compiles sales and transfers throughout the year. The list 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 listed at the end of the list (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.
