The Maricopa County Real Estate Department is responsible for auctioning excess land owned by the Flood Control District of Maricopa County (District) and the Maricopa County Department of Transportation (MCDOT). "Excess land" is land which was acquired as part of a project and is no longer needed by that Department.
The appraisal may take up to 90 days. After the appraisal is received, reviewed and approved by the Department, the prospective buyer is informed of the minimum bid required at auction and an auction date is set.
An auction deposit of 10% of the minimum bid (unless otherwise published) plus Fee Reimbursement in the form of cashier’s check is required. These will be returned to unsuccessful bidders at close of auction. The initiating party will forfeit Fee Reimbursement if they do not meet minimum bid requirements and no one else bids.
Auction day requirements may vary. See bid package for specific requirements.
The successful bidder is responsible for the appraisal cost and half the cost of the title report at close of escrow. Overpayment of the Fee Reimbursement will be applied towards the purchase price of the property. Escrow typically closes within 90 to 120 days from auction date; bid package specifies the timeframe.
