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.
