County Surplus Property

The website for GovDeals is This service offers the citizens of Buncombe County an opportunity to purchase surplus items year round as opposed to an annual County auction.

In order to find out what surplus items Buncombe County currently has available for auction simply visit the GovDeals homepage and click on the link “Advanced Search" and then select North Carolina and Buncombe County from the list of sellers.

You must register with GovDeals in order to bid on an item, but you do not have to register to view the available items.  All items are sold “as is” and Buncombe County reserves the right to reject any and all bids.  GovDeals collects payments for all items sold.  GovDeals accepts PayPal, Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Discover, and wire transfer.
