Real estate services

Find information on buying WSDOT property, wireless leasing, and the programs we have in place if a WSDOT project affects you or your property.

WSDOT has six regions and most real estate functions are the responsibility of the region where a property is located. If you have any questions about WSDOT-owned real estate or a project that affects your property, please call the region on the contact list in your county. 

Real estate auctions and wireless leasing for the state is done by the Real Estate Services headquarters office. You can find information on those auctions, wireless leasing and general information below.

Buy WSDOT property

Leasing

For information on Wireless Leasing see our wireless leasing website. For information to lease other types of WSDOT property contact the Real Estate Services Manager in your region.

Acquisition

In some cases, a WSDOT project may need to acquire property to construct, operate, and/or maintain a transportation facility. If your property is impacted by a WSDOT project, a representative will contact you to explain the process and review your rights as a property owner. For more information, please see the Property Needs and You (PDF 380KB) brochure.

Relocation

If you or any of your personal property needs to move for a WSDOT project, you will be offered Relocation assistance.  The Relocation Assistance Program is responsible for administering the Uniform Relocation Act (URA). The URA is designed to establish uniform procedures that will assure legal entitlements and provide fair, equitable, and consistent treatment to persons displaced by WSDOT.  Find more detail on these services and payments in the following brochures:

Slow down on ice and snow.

It's easier to skid or lose control traveling at higher speeds. Give yourself more time to stop.

Carry chains, practice installing them.

Winter conditions could mean chains are required on your route. Practice putting them on your vehicle ahead of time.

Pack your winter car kit.

Carry extra supplies like warm clothing, ice scraper and brush, jumper cables and other emergency items.
