Properties are advertised and auctioned in alphabetical order according to the defaulting owner's last name or company name as listed in Beaufort County’s tax system.  If an owner has multiple properties being auctioned, the properties will be advertised and auctioned in numerical order by Property Identification Number (PIN).
