 County Property For Sale

The Vance County Board of Commissioners will consider offers to purchase the listed properties. Anyone interested in placing a bid must deposit 5 percent of their bid with the Clerk to the Board, 122 Young Street, Suite B, Henderson, NC. If you have questions in regard to making an offer, contact the Clerk to the Board – Kelly Grissom (252-738-2003).

Property Acquisition Procedures

Offers to purchase real property must be submitted to the Clerk to the Board on the offer to purchase form.  Your written offer to purchase and the greater of $750 or 50% of the attorney’s fees paid and other county costs in the property shall be submitted to the clerk to the board of County Commissioners. The name of the actual purchaser shall be disclosed on the offer to purchase.

After the bid is approved by the Board of Commissioners a notice will be published in the Henderson Daily Dispatch and any interested party may raise or upset the bid within 10 days from the date of publication.

Once an upset bid has been placed on a property, that bid will be re-advertised until there are no further upset bids.

Bidders will not be contacted by the Clerk’s office when an upset bid is received or prior to the 10 day deadline. All bidders are advised to watch legal notices in the Henderson Daily Dispatch or to contact the Clerk (738-2003) if they have questions.

The amount of the upset bid is calculated the same as set forth above and the bid must be accompanied by a certified check or cash for $750 above the current bid amount. This process shall continue until there are no further upset bids and at that time the final bid shall be advertised in the Henderson Daily Dispatch. Deposit of unsuccessful bidders shall be returned to the parties at the completion of the bidding process.

The successful bidder must present a certified check for the entire balance due within 90 days of the last day for receipt of upset bids. If the balance due is not paid within the 90 day period the total amount of the deposit is forfeited to the County and the offer is rejected. (An extension of up to 45 days may be requested-approval of this extension is at the discretion of the Board of Commissioners.)

Upon payment of the balance in full the matter shall be placed the agenda of the next available meeting of the Board of County Commissioners for a resolution authorizing the Chairman to execute a quitclaim deed to the successful bidder. The purchaser may pick up the deed from the Clerk after it has been executed. The purchaser shall be responsible for recording the deed and recording fees.
