Fargo, ND (WDAY TV) - Expect more flood buyouts in 2014. 50 homes are up for grabs.

Most houses run along south Fargo, but are scattered throughout the city.

If homeowners don't comply with the buyout deal, their flood insurance has the possibility of sky-rocketing.

So far, over half have already been closed on, which puts Cass County in good standing.

County Administrator Keith Berndt reminds home owners these homes have to go either way.

Keith Berndt- Cass County Administrator: "Also, this program is one that we've looked at homes that would need to be bought out even if the, even when the diversion is constructed. These are homes that would be flood-prone even with diversion."

An auction is scheduled for January where Cass County expects to sell 20 homes.
