County Property for Sale

Dorchester County takes a proactive approach to dealing with vacant, blighted and abandoned property.  If a property does not sell at the annual tax auction, the County will take ownership and maintain the property until it can be transformed into productive property by new home owners, non-profits, adjacent property owners or neighborhood groups. We do this through a progressive policy which encourages affordable home ownership. Check out the list of available properties and process for purchasing here.
