Profile in Bisnow of the monthly event at the Bayou City Event Center.


"Attendees at the Harris County Delinquent Tax Sale and foreclosure auction describe it as a bizarre and arcane function akin to a circus. 

On the first Tuesday of each month, the Bayou City Event Center fills with people armed with $5 cash for parking — and far more in their wallets — to buy distressed properties, some hoping to get their foot in the door of real estate investing, others looking to add more residences to big portfolios.

Employees act as ringleaders, directing beginners and auction vets where to go. Colorfully clad vendors, some in costume, offer foreclosure sale information and the odd performance. Crowds gather around a stage where auctioneers navigate a high wire of rapid-fire bids for dozens of houses."
