Research and Inspect Thoroughly Before You Bid
Prospective purchasers are urged to conduct a due diligence review of each property upon which a bid will be made to determine they are satisfied with all aspects of the property including, without limitation, the title, physical and environmental condition thereof and the suitability thereof for any and all intended uses. The Pierce County Assessor-Treasurer’s Office recommends that purchasers use all resources available to them to ascertain the merits of each parcel before bidding at auction.
