Vacant State Land Up For Auction Through July

DETROIT (WWJ) – In the market for some land Up North?

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources has partnered with the Michigan Land Bank Fast Track Authority on the sale of about 140 properties throughout the state of Michigan.

The partnership has opened a sealed-bid auction from June 20 until August 1 on the separate properties, which add up to about 2,400 acres. Although the properties are spread throughout the state, a majority are located in Northern Michigan.

“We recently lowered the starting bid on many of our properties to provide an easy and affordable way for individuals to buy land for personal use,” said DNR Director Rodney Stokes. “By partnering with the Michigan Land Bank, we’ve added even more variety and value to this year’s auction.”

Locations that are part of the auction include four properties in the Sugar Springs community in Gladwin County and 200 acres of vacant forest land between St. Ignace and Sault Ste. Marie.
