There are number of bargain properties on the auction block in Tulsa County. The county has 300 properties and it is looking to unload at an upcoming auction.

A few plots actually have improvements like a house, but the majority are empty lots. Most of the land is in the city limits of Tulsa. The rest are scattered through Leonard, Owasso, Broken Arrow.

Tulsa County Treasurer Dennis Semler says there's double the usual number of properties up for auction. So he's advertising on the radio, to bring out the maximum number of potential buyers.

Radio Ad: "For years, these sales were only advertised in legal notices, but I want to get the word out so more citizens are aware of the auction."

County treasurer Dennis Semler: "The average guy does not read the fine print of the legal notices and I'm well aware of that."

The auction is Monday, June 12.
