Beaufort County to host the 2nd Annual Online property auction May 30-June 10

in News by

The Beaufort County Treasurer’s Office will auction properties owned by the Beaufort County Forfeited Land Commission (FLC) in an online auction through Meares Auction Group. All properties auctioned are available for immediate title.

“Our first Annual Online Auction was a success, generating over $150,000 in revenue with the sale of nearly half of the 48 properties put up for auction in 2015. An online auction is a surefire way to generate interest from bidders who aren’t here locally, giving them an opportunity to purchase property in Beaufort County and once again return FLC property into the hands of tax-paying citizens. Our hope is to continue with this success in 2016,” said Maria Walls, Beaufort County Treasurer.

Properties will be auctioned using a timed bidding process with pre-bidding starting on Monday, May 30, 2016, at 8:00 a.m. EST and the auction closing on Friday, June 10, 2016 at 12:00 p.m. EST. Additional information may be obtained on the Forfeited Land Commission page of the Beaufort County Treasurer’s website (www.beaufortcountytreasurer.com/Forefieted-Land-Commission).
