How long does the purchase process take?

The purchase process time varies depending upon the stage the particular property has reached in the excess property declaration process. Typically, a property that has already been declared as excess by the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors/Flood Control District Board of Directors can close escrow six to nine months from the date the initial bid deposit is received.
