How Does the County Advertise?

There are statutory requirements for providing public notice of a public auction of real and personal property. The requirements for the duration and type of legal notice are dictated by state statutes but the public notice period is normally 3-4 weeks in duration. Typically, the public notice postings appear in the Arizona Business Gazette.

Marketing of public property auctions can be found:
  • On the Maricopa County Department of Transportation website. Interested parties may subscribe to notifications of upcoming auctions.
  • On signs posted on the subject property.
  • On flyers posted in public buildings.
In addition, other methods of marketing may be utilized on a case-by-case basis, depending on the location and nature of the property.
