Real Estate Services

The Real Estate Services Section of MDOT’s Development Services Division is responsible for establishing and maintaining statewide MDOT real estate standards, policies and procedures, and training. The section manages real estate activities for condemnation litigation, railroads, excess property, technical work, and program management.

The Real Estate Services Section also oversees the Local Agency Real Estate and Real Estate Quality Assurance Programs and provides support and technical expertise to MDOT region offices in the areas of appraisal valuation, acquisition of right-of-way, relocation assistance, and demolition of improvements.

Online Auction Sale

MDOT has expanded the way it sells excess real estate to include online auctions. Through DTMB-MiBid, MDOT posts properties from around the state that are no longer necessary for transportation purposes. To ensure access to MDOT's online real estate auctions, individuals will need to register for MiLogin Access in order to place bids. Please go to Register for MiLogin Access.

Property Disposal

MDOT periodically licenses, leases or sells real estate it deems no longer needed for transportation purposes, through a sealed-bid sale, auction sale, or over-the-counter sale.
