The Whatcom County Treasurer may conduct several property auctions per year, as necessary. Different types of property can be sold at each of these sales. The number of parcels, or items auctioned, varies greatly from sale to sale. An auction may have anywhere from one item, to hundreds of items. Because they vary so much, the location of each auction may change to accommodate the number of persons attending, or the type of items being auctioned.

Our next annual foreclosure sale is scheduled for November 21, 2014, click on the date link to see the Minimum Bid List. No Tax Title auction is currently scheduled.

No Guarantees

Anyone considering buying property at a Treasurer's sale should be aware that there is risk.  When selling parcels, the County conveys the entirety of the interest that it is legally capable of transferring, unless otherwise noted.  However, the County does not guarantee or provide warranty as to the extent of the interest.  The County makes no guarantees whatsoever on parcels sold at Treasurer's sales.

The following statement applies to all Treasurer's property sales:

"This is a buyer beware sale.  All sales are final.  We offer the parcels on a 'where is' and 'as is' basis.  The County makes no representation of warranty, express or implied, nor any guarantee of warranty, express or implied, as to the condition of title to any property, nor the physical condition of any property or it's fitness for any use or purpose."
