Property Management

Property Management

Clatsop County owns a variety of properties ranging from small slivers of land to several acres. Management of these lands consists of defining appropriate uses for different parcels, property exchanges (sales, transfers) and other activites associated with real estate.

Clatsop County is dedicated to returning surplus county-owned land to the property tax rolls. Surplus lands are offered for purchase through public auctions, sealed bids or other sales as allowed by Oregon law.

Auctions of surplus land are generally held twice a year and are advertised in The Daily Astorian for four consecutive weeks prior to the auction, usually in Friday issues. Auctions are held in accordance with ORS 275.110 and Resolution and Order of the Clatsop County Board of Commissioners. All properties are sold as is and for cash. Payment is due in full by 5 p.m. the day of the auction.


There are no public auctions scheduled at this time.


Sealed bids may be accepted on properties that did not sell at previous public auctions. For a list of Sealed Bid Properties, please visit our office for review, as lists may change monthly.
