Foreclosure Sale Dates



The Rutherford County Revenue Department, at the direction of the Rutherford County Commissioners, is aggressively pursuing the collection of delinquent real and personal property taxes. One of the collection tools used by the Tax Collector is the employment of private attorneys to commence formal foreclosure proceedings under North Carolina General Statutes 105-374 against real property on which there are delinquent unpaid property taxes.

The properties listed for sale on this website are being foreclosed under judgment of the court for failure to pay property taxes. This is NOT a sale of any surplus properties owned by Rutherford County. No representations, warranties or guarantees of any kind are made by the County or Sale Commissioner with respect to these tax foreclosure sales. Each property is being sold as-is, buyer beware, and it is the duty of any bidder to investigate the property on their own prior to making any bid. The information posted here about any tax foreclosure sale property (notice, minimum bid, redemption, structures and pictures) is for assistance only in this investigative process, and cannot and should not be relied upon solely by any bidder. Properties listed here are subject to redemption at any time prior to the entry of a confirmation order by the Court and delivery of a deed by the Commissioner. This means that redemption can occur at any time, even right before a sale or after a sale. Any redeemed properties are withdrawn immediately from the sale process. Efforts are made to update this website in a timely manner with redemptions and sale information, but this website cannot be relied upon to be up-to-date in “real time”. For the status of any property, the bidder is required to check the court file and /or with the attorney handling the sale. Prior to the public sale date, bidders can also check with Jennifer Whiteley, 828-287-6181 or for information that she may have about the properties for sale.
