PURPOSE:
The Property Management Section of the Engineering and Inspections Department is in the process of selling surplus land consisting of a residential lot located at 917 Gregory Street, parcel #0006066. Council approval is requested to proceed with the sale of the property to the highest bidder.

BACKGROUND:
Property Management has advertised this property since November 18, 2019. The highest bid from Bulent Bediz was accepted in accordance with Section 4:122 of the City Code of Ordinances, "Sale of real property by advertisement for bid". The property was recently valued by Lynn Ritchy, an independent appraiser, at $8,500. The highest and final bid of $15,950 was accepted and advertised in the News & Record with a 10 day upset period. This upset period has expired with no further bids.

The property was acquired by a commissioner's deed through the foreclosure process. It has been determined that there is no municipal need for the property. The total area of the lot is 10,000 Sq. Ft. (0.23 acres). The property is zoned RM-12, Residential Multi-family 12.

The accepted sales price surpasses the Department's policy requiring that sales price be at least 90% of the appraised value of properties.

BUDGET IMPACT:
The proceeds from the sale of this property will be credited to the Foreclosure Accounts Receivable Account #101-0000-00.0400 of the General Fund. Once all costs related to advertising, property transfer fees, and maintenance are paid, any net remaining amount will be recorded as revenue from the sale of the property.
