The intent of the auction process is to receive the highest return on the sale of all property. This is money that goes towards infrastructure upgrades and public services County-wide. In many cases, the sale of tax delinquent property requires some site preparation. Tax delinquent properties are often neglected properties, and include may include sometime substantial trash, debris, and dilapidated structures. Older buildings, like those present at Miracle Valley, may include asbestos as a building material. Cleaning up the property will support the County's goal to obtain the highest price for the property at the auction. The presence of trash, dilapidated structures, and hazardous materials discourages interest in properties and may even prevent any sale at all.
