Department of Interior
Bureau of Land Management (BLM)
What is sold: The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) is responsible for managing more than 261.4 million acres of public lands. Public land is undeveloped land with no improvements. Most of the public lands are located in the Western States and Alaska. The BLM does not offer much land for sale because of a Congressional mandate in 1976 to retain these lands. The BLM occasionally sells parcels of land under certain conditions. The lands are generally rural woodland, grassland, or desert.
How the land is sold: The BLM has three options for selling land:
The sale method is determined on a case-by-case basis, depending on the circumstances of each particular parcel or sale. By law, the lands are offered for sale at fair market value.
How sales are advertised: Land sales are listed in local newspapers, online, and in the Federal Register.
Special restrictions/conditions: Sales conditions are provided in the Notice of Sale. The BLM can sell public land only to U.S. citizens or corporations subject to Federal or state laws. Employees of the Department of the Interior are not allowed to bid. No financing is available. Cashier's check or cash is required.
