Tax Sale Property Lists & Maps


We organize all of Saint Louis City and Saint Louis County’s lists of properties into clean Excel spreadsheets and browse-able maps sorted by property.

City of St. Louis bidders must register at least 10 days prior to an auction. It’s free and online. You might go ahead and register so you’re not turned away: St. Louis City Land Tax Sale Pre-Registration Form

I recommend printing the filled-in form before clicking Submit and also printing the acknowledgement page after clicking Submit, just in case. Prospective bidders are notified after being approved, so please be patient with the Sheriff’s office.

The indicated street address may be misleading or just plain wrong. For instance, there may be recent demolitions, vacant lots, condos, billboards, townhouses, rear yards, parking spaces, side lots, and odd parcels on this list. No warranties are given as to the correctness or completeness of this information. Google’s photos could be old or bad.  Please at least review a legal description of the property, and please view the property in person from the street and the alley. Refunds are expensive and time-consuming and not even hardly guaranteed. (Get it right the first time.) Redemptions will be noted outside the 11th Street doors of the Civil Courts, 10 N.

Upcoming City of St. Louis Tax Sale Dates

Lists are generally released two weeks prior.

August 13
October 8

Upcoming Missouri Counties Auction Date

Outside of the City (and Jackson County), most Missouri counties’ auctions occur on the fourth Monday in August, this year August 26, 2024. That includes St. Louis County.

August 26

St. Louis County Tax Sale 2024

Begins August 26, 2024

Once the list is released, I will put it into an Excel spreadsheet and into a clickable map form and will post them here.

St. Louis County will conduct its auction not in person but by sealed bid around the August 26 date. Information, bidder registration (in advance), and instructions are on St. Louis County’s Real Property Tax Sales Page

The property address is for guidance only; many addresses may not be what you think they are. As always, I suggest thoroughly researching properties before bidding. Opening bids that look too good to be true are probably too good to be true. Use particular care for properties with “A” or “H” or “R” in the possible street address. Hear it now: The property address is for guidance only; many addresses may not be what you think they are.

St. Louis County
Post-Third List

St. Louis County annually updates its Post Third Sale list. Nobody updates this list other than once a year, which means it’s probably already out of date.

These are properties that the Collector of Revenue offered at auction least three years in a row, but nobody bought them. Prospective purchasers simply submit an offer any old time and, if the Collector accepts the offer, the Collector issues a Collector’s Deed. Follow St. Louis County’s instructions.

This list is only for St. Louis County, and many Missouri counties compile similar lists. Contact the Collector of your choice.

In St. Louis County, the lowest possible offer is usually the principal tax amount due plus the sewer lateral fee (if any). Search the County’s Web site to determine the amounts due.

Many offerings on this list are too good to be true. For instance, at least those addresses with an H, R, or A in the possible street address are probably not what you think. You may wish to consult the Collector, a title company, a land surveyor, or an attorney. I make no representations or warranties about the correctness or completeness of the information here.

Please note that the Collector does not guarantee clean title, and a quiet title lawsuit or other curative work is almost always necessary following the issuance of a Collector’s Deed. A quiet title suit may be successful or unsuccessful in stripping others’ interests from the property due to the Constitutionally problematic nature of Missouri’s post-third system. You should also know that a court ruling indicates that sewer bills survive a tax sale. MSD may post the balances on their Web site.
