Auto-bidAs a bidder, you don't have to constantly watch auctions and worry about being outbid! All GovDeals Internet Auctions feature an auto-bid. In the bid box on the auction view page, enter the HIGHEST dollar amount that you are willing to pay, and the GovDeals bidding system will bid on your behalf by placing a bid at the current LOWEST minimum bid. If another bidder outbids your LOWEST minimum bid, the system will automatically place another bid, once again making you the current high bidder, until your "top dollar" number is reached. The auto-bidding system will continue to place the LOWEST minimum bids on your behalf until you are the winner of the auction or another bidder bids higher than your auto-bid. Auto-bids are completely private and are never displayed to other bidders. In the event of a reserve price auction, your auto-bid will immediately bid up to the amount of the reserve OR to the max amount of your auto-bid if the reserve price is in excess of your auto-bid.
Bid ExtensionIf a bid is placed during the final 3 minutes of an auction, the auction's current end time will automatically extend for additional 3 minutes. This will continue until no bids are placed during the last three minutes.

|Questions and Answers|
Q: Do you have existing civil plans for the infrastructure and improvements that were previously performed at the site. I would assume that there is an existing topo plan for the site also. Can you post these plans as PDF's for our review? (9/2/20 1:13 PM)
A: At this time, existing civil and topo plans have not been identified. If such plans are later found they may be posted on site. Additional site information, including topo maps, might be found at Iredell County's Mapping website, http://www.co.iredell.nc.us/554/GIS-Mapping. (9/15/20 9:51 AM)
Q: What was the property's previous operating name/ownership? Could you provide the tax parcel #? Are there any tax liens or outstanding debts encumbering this transaction? Who Paid the $600k for the referenced improvements? (9/15/20 7:02 PM)
A: The property is owned by Iredell County Government and operated by Iredell County's Parks and Recreation Dept as an outdoor education center and ropes course. There are no liens on the property, improvements were paid for by the County. The Parcel ID # is 4648-65-4543.000. (9/16/20 8:45 AM)
Q: is this area subject to flooding?
is it consider a flood zone or plane?
has it flooded in past?
why is county selling if they invested 600k in it? (9/18/20 11:20 PM)
A: There is no record of the property having flooded in the past. At its lowest point there are two ankle-deep creeks that dry to almost a trickle in summer. These occasionally overflow their shallow banks during extreme rain but recede quickly and have not caused damage to the access road under which they run in two areas or to any structure on the property. Investments made were for the purpose of installing, accessing and operating the outdoor education center and confidence course. That program was relocated to a new site, that purpose no longer exists, and the County no longer needs the property. (9/22/20 10:32 AM)
