A small wedding party, a loud furniture delivery man and a college sorority pledge with a painted face walked through yesterday's auction of one of the largest foreclosed properties in Baltimore County history. The only ones who didn't show up at the steps of the Baltimore County Courthouse were serious bidders.
After 10 minutes, and with no apparent bids from anyone except the lender, the Atlantic Auctions Inc.auctioneer closed the sale at $3.26 million for the 180 acres just west of the Owings Mills Town Center.
The buyer, as expected, was Pittsburgh-based Westinghouse Credit Corp., which had lent more than $14.5 million to a development team that planned to build town houses. Westinghouse initiated the foreclosure about a month ago.
