Our tax foreclosure sales are based off of delinquent property taxes that are due to Alamance County and any city, or municipality in Alamance County. The properties are sold for the taxes owed to Alamance County and or any City along with fees that are associated with the preparation of these sales. Foreclosures are held throughout the year and held at the Historic Courthouse located at #1 Courthouse Square, Graham, NC. Notices of Sale are advertised for two weeks prior to the sale in the Alamance News in Graham, NC. The highest bidder at public sale shall be required to pay a deposit of 5% the day of sale. The deposit must either be in cash or certified funds. There is a 10-day upset bid period that runs with every sale. After the 10th day, if you are the highest bidder, our office will contact you to set up an appointment for the remaining balance to be brought in within (10) ten days and the deed transferred. If, however there, were upset bids made within the 10 day period, the Clerk of Court will contact you by first class mail to let you know that your bid has been upset. You then have to decide if you are interested in staying in the bidding or not. The upset bids are handled through the Clerk of Courts office, located at #1 Courthouse Square in the Civil Department. Upset Bids are based on the last bid amount. The deposit for upset bids are as follows: $750.00 is the minimum amount required for any bid amount that is under $15,000.00, and any bid over and above $15,000.00 the deposit required will be 5% or any amount greater than or equal to five percent of the last bid given. The Clerk requires cash or certified funds. If you decide to drop out of the bidding process you will  receive your deposit back, however, only after the file has been officially closed. So, please remember that this money could potentially be tied up for weeks if there are upset bids.  If you have questions or concerns regarding these listings, please contact the Alamance County Legal Department at (336) 570-4049. Properties that do not sell on the day of the sale will be sold at our Sale.  ALL PROPERTIES ARE SOLD “AS IS, WHERE IS.”
