2016 Property Tax Foreclosure Auction Notice


    King County Treasury Operations has historically held an annual live tax foreclosure auction in mid-December. Legislation was passed recently allowing counties to conduct online foreclosure auctions. Because of this change, King County now holds an online annual property tax foreclosure auction.

    Additionally, on April 26, 2016 at 9a.m., King County will auction the properties that were granted a continuance in 2015 but did not pay as required by court order.

    This next King County tax foreclosure auction will be held online at Parcels and accompanying title reports will be posted for review at this site on April 8, 2016. In order to be able to bid, please go to the Bid4Assets website to register no later than April 17, 2016. If you have not registered by this date, you will not be able to participate in the auction. For questions regarding registration and the bidding process, please contact Bid4Assets directly at “CONTACT US”. To create an account, choose “SIGN UP” at the top of the page.

    The “2016 Tax Foreclosure Auction Terms of Sale” will be posted in October, 2016. Please see side link at that time.

    Please contact us by email at or by telephone at 206-263-2649 with general tax foreclosure questions.
