US Department of the Treasury Seized Real Property Auctions

Treasury Auctions

Sale participants must register to bid during the specified registration time for the sale. Bring a valid government issued photo ID and the cashier's check deposit to register and receive your bidder number. Click here to view the bidder registration form pdf icon. This form can be printed out and completed prior to the auction. You do not need to mail or fax the completed form, just bring it to the auction to register. Forms will also be available at the auction. You should read and understand the Terms of Sale before you bid. Sales personnel at the auction site can answer any questions you may have.

Property is sold through open, progressive voice bidding. The placement of a successful bid at a Department of the Treasury auction establishes a legally binding contract between the successful bidder and the Government. The auctioneer's announcement of the high bid amount and the bidder's number establishes the contract which is subject to final acceptance by the Government. All property is sold "as is." You do not need a broker to participate.

The bidding progresses quickly during the auction. Please pay close attention. Failure to do so or bidder misunderstanding will not be reason enough to cancel a sale. If you need any help or clarification, ask a bid assistant.
