Treasurer Announces County’s Annual Online Auction

Chydonna Thurston - Wednesday, July 19, 2017
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 goal is to return FLC property into the hands of tax-paying citizens. As the only County conducting online auctions of property, this is another way we are leveraging technology to work smarter. Conducting an online auction generates interest beyond what an in-person auction would create and since all of the properties being auctioned are available for immediate title, we can transfer title to the successful bidder almost immediately,” said Maria Walls, CPA, Beaufort County Treasurer.

Properties will be auctioned using a timed bidding process with pre-bidding starting on Monday, July 31, 2017, at 8:00 a.m. EST and the auction closing on Thursday, August 10, 2017 at 12:00 p.m. EST.  Visit Meares Auction Group’s website to register to bid.
