The Basics of Government Auctions
The problem with government auctions is that there is not just one big auction. Each agency has its own auction either on its own or in conjunction with other agencies. For example, the U.S. Air Force runs its own auctions. The U.S. Marshals Service runs the auctions for itself and the Department of Justice, the FBI, the DEA, the INS and the ATF. This means that any merchandise seized by any of these agencies is auctioned through the U.S. Marshals Service. The U.S. Treasury handles auctions for itself and the IRS. Border Patrol and Customs handle their own auctions, and so on. What makes it even more difficult is that they all have their own quirks and rules that the buyer has to be aware of. For example, houses sold at the IRS auctions can be redeemed by the original owner within a specified period of time. The owner has to pay the auction price plus the interest and the buyer can't do anything about it. That is why it is important to know the rules that the auction functions under.
The best thing to do is to look at the different auction at Firstgov.gov. The rules and procedures are given for each of the online and in-person auctions with instructions on where merchandise can be viewed prior to the auction.
