Land Sales

The tax-forfeited lands offered for sale by Cass County are either lands that have recently forfeited or lands that the county has classified for sale. County lands in forest management status, lands that are designated for exchange, or lands that provide primary access will not be offered for sale.

The lands to be offered for sale are appraised at fair market value and must be approved for sale by the State of Minnesota. No parcel shall be sold for less than the appraised value.

Land sales are not on an annual basis & there may be two or three years between sales. The land sale auctions are conducted by oral auction. However, mailed sealed bids will be accepted and will be opened prior to the oral auction.

Land sale auction information will be posted on this web site when the information becomes available. If you prefer to be placed on the land sale mailing list, send $10.00 with your name and address to:

Land Department
P.O. Box 25
Backus, MN  56435                                           

This fee covers the cost for you to receive information regarding future land sales auctions for five years.

Over the counter land sales are parcels that have been offered for sale but not purchased at public auction.  These parcels are available for purchase over the counter for the appraised value, plus applicable fees.  These parcels can also be located on the Cass County interactive web map, land parcels for sale will be outlined in red.  Additionally, hyperlinks to the interactive map have been provided for the parcel numbers in the over the counter land sales reports
