“The City of New Orleans is committed to operating more efficiently,” Deputy Mayor and Chief Administrative Officer Andy Kopplin said. “These properties have been deemed as no longer needed for public purposes and it is important that they are put back into commerce as soon as possible.”


Starting bids for properties are set at fair market value.
The winning bidder must deposit ten percent of the winning bid amount with the Real Estate and Records Division (City Hall Room 5W06) within one hour of the completion of the auction.

The deposit must be in cash, certified check, or money order and is non-refundable.
If the deposit is not received within one hour, the property will be offered to the second highest bidder.

Additional costs over the winning bid must be paid to complete the sale. These costs include: appraisal, Clerk of Court costs, City Notary fees, possible resubdivision fees and other possible costs.

The City of New Orleans cannot contract with convicted felons, City employees, or any party that owes taxes to the City of New Orleans.

Also, the City will distribute required paperwork to the winning bidder, such as a tax clearance affidavit, vendor registration form, and other required information.
