The clock reads "zero" on his website and the property was auctioned off at 9 a.m. Tuesday morning, Oct. 29, at the Rensselaer County Courthouse. The former owner, Brian Holloway, an ex-NFL lineman for the New England Patriots and Oakland Raiders, posted that he's been talking to investors from all over the world including Dubai, Wall Street and Hollywood.
But they didn't come to the table. Instead, it was Berkshire Bank which bid $400,000 and took the property valued at $1,006,348.80 at 742 Route 43 in Stephentown.
"They've been extremely aggressive and predatory," said Holloway.
Back on Labor Day weekend, Holloway's house in rural Rensselaer County was trashed during a teen bash that gained national notoriety. It was vandalized by hundreds of teenagers and there have been several arrests made by the Rensselaer County Sheriff's Office.
"The idea that a week after the house was broken into and trashed that they were going to auction the property was pretty brutal, that was pretty shocking," Holloway said.
The home has been under foreclosure with several investors.
