If you want to buy some scrap land from the county – some of it under a tenth of an acre in size – you need to get your bid in by Wednesday, May 19.  

Guilford County is selling nine plots of land to the highest bidder.

The county acquires various properties over the years through forfeitures or abandonment.  Sometimes that land can be resold quickly but sometimes it’s a small corner piece of surplus property or an odd remnant of land left over from a nearby project.  If you’re in the market for something like that, the county may have what you want.

However, buyer beware: In bold type, the county lets potential buyers know that “All Properties are soldAS IS, WHERE IS’ with absolutely no warranties or representations, repairs or guarantees of condition.

That said, here’s the list you can choose from:

  • 0.03 acres at 1002 YY E. Bragg St. in Greensboro. The tax value is $500 and the minimum bid is $400.
