City owned property

2 Replies

I was driving for dollars today and came across a vacant property with boarded up windows. I searched for the home owner and I found it was owned by the city. How would I go about trying to purchase this property?

Cities acquire properties for various reasons like unpaid taxes, purchased due to highway projects. You should contact the city hall. They'll be able to point you in the right direction.

Large cities will often have annual auctions to unload their inventory.

If there is a formal process in the city, not just a random situation, you'll be able to find some info at the town hall website.
