Property not redistributed to eligible organizations is made available to the general public through Public Auctions.

All public sales are advertised through print media and this site, so visit this site frequently for announcements of upcoming sales. A subscription mailing list is another alternative for notification of auctions and sealed bid sales.

The State of Arizona Surplus Property Management Office DOES NOT manage the sale of Surplus Real Estate including buildings and vacant land. Land, buildings, Right-Of-Way, or other Real Property that is surplus to the State of Arizona is typically sold by the Arizona Department of Transportation or the Arizona Land Department.
