I am very proud to share with you that I have just purchased my very first home, and for a fraction of what it is worth on the real estate market! You may be wondering how I have been able to do so ... well, today is your lucky day. I will be outlining exactly how I bought for this beauty, and I owe it all to Government & Police Auctions!

From $45,000 Forclosure 5 Bed, 2 Bath

It all started while I was still in college. I was very interested in cars, especially buying used cars from individuals, fixing them up and reselling them for a profit. I was easily able to make $500-$3500 per vehicle. The trouble was finding reasonable priced vehicles to continue to fix up around me. I started to hear about some State run auctions where I could purchase used cars at a fraction of the cost, but was having trouble locating where and when these took place. That is when I discovered GovernmentAuctions.org. They specialize in Government & Police Auctions and Foreclosures across the United States.

This is exactly what I was looking for!

From $250 Seized 1200cc Motorcycle

By answering a few simple questions, I was quickly able to activate my free account and get a list of car and house auctions in North Carolina and the neighboring States.  The listings even included some of the vehicles that would be auctioned off, helping me narrow down my selection.

I reviewed a couple of auctions before I decided to go and check out my first auction. It was a Federal Fleet Vehicle Sale in Greenville, NC. They had a 2003 Dodge 1500 listed, with low millage, that I was interested it looking at further.

On the day of the auction, I arrived a couple hours ahead of time, giving myself some time to browse all the vehicles, especially the Dodge I was interested in. Upon arrival I was directed to a modular building where I needed to provided some person information to register as a buyer for the auction. While I was signing up to get my paddle, used for bidding, I was informed of a few rules and guidelines, which apply to most auctions:

  • There is a buyer’s premium which is in addition to any bid price and applicable state taxes (usually around 10%)
  • Purchases need to be removed within a couple of days of purchase

After departing the registration trailer, I started to look around the lot. There were already a number of others people, clutching coffee cups and notepads pacing around the yard looking at various trucks, motorcycles, and even some classic cars, taking notes about the age and condition of each. After the short preview time, the auction began. It was a little overwhelming at first, but I was able to quickly understand what the auctioneer was saying and before the truck I wanted came up for auction. After an exhilarating bidding process, I was able to secure the truck for a measly $3500. And I was hooked.

That was only the first of many cars, trucks, and motorcycles I have bought using GovernmentAuctions.org. Since that day, I have even branched out into buying gold and jewelry from their Live and Online Seized Property & Surplus Property auctions, and of course my very first home from a Foreclosure auction.
