Online County Auction Features 237 Properties for Sale


Bidders must register by May 5 to participate

San Diego County Treasurer-Tax Collector Dan McAllister announced bidder registration is underway for the 2022 online property tax re-offer auction, with more than 230 properties for sale.   

“We encourage hopeful bidders to register for the available properties we have in San Diego. It’s our goal to sell every parcel; selling these properties enables us to generate revenue for the county, and helps us provide needed services in our community,” said McAllister.  

Anyone can bid during the online property tax auction from May 13 to May 18. To participate, bidders must register by May 5 at the Treasurer-Tax Collector’s (TTC) tax auction website, They must also submit a refundable $1,000 deposit and a nonrefundable $35 processing fee.  

“We have 2 residential or commercial properties, 219 timeshares, and 16 parcels of land for sale. All minimum bids total $377,700,” McAllister said. “People who are interested in the auction should sign up for our e-notifications at to receive email reminders before important deadlines.”  

It’s important to note that owners of the auctioned properties can avoid going to sale by redeeming their property and paying the taxes and fees owed. They have until 5 p.m. on May 12 to do so. Before the sale, every effort is made to contact the owners of these properties to notify them about the impending sale.  

All sales are final, so this is a buyer beware sale. The TTC recommends beginning the research process on its website. If you are a winning bidder and do not complete the sale, you will forfeit your deposit.

McAllister concluded, “This is an opportunity for anyone around the world to participate and purchase property in San Diego County.”
