The parcel includes all of Lot 5 in Block 15 of New Topsail Beach Subdivision as shown on a map recorded in Map book 3 at page 56 of the Pender County registry and is located at the end of Crews street at 822 Carolina Boulevard in the Town of Topsail Beach.
Persons wishing to upset the offer that has been received shall submit a sealed bid with their offer to the office of the Town Clerk, Topsail Beach Town Hall, 820 South Anderson Boulevard, Topsail Beach N.C., by 5:00 p.m., March 23rd, 2015. At that time the town clerk shall open the bids, if any, and the highest qualifying bid will become the new offer.

The buyer must pay cash at closing.
The Town Board must approve the final high offer before the sale is closed, which it will do within 30 days after the final upset bid period has passed.
