City Sells Renovated Home PDF E-mail

applehill house webThere are lots of homes for sale in the City of West Carrollton, but only one is for sale by the City of West Carrollton.

At 5 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 14, the city will host a walk-through of a recently-renovated home at 325 Applehill Drive. This is the first residence in a pilot program between the City and the Montgomery County Land Bank.

“This home was obtained through the Expedited Foreclosure Program,” said Tom Ross, economic development director. “It had been vacant for three years, but we determined that its condition warranted a closer look at the possibility of renovation versus demolition,” he said.

The city obtained a $50,000 loan from Montgomery County and selected Prestige Construction of Dayton as the contractor for renovations. After several interior and exterior improvements, the home will be listed for $129,900.

“The buyer of this house is basically getting a brand-new home,” Ross said.

Ross said the city’s goal is to increase property values in the neighborhood and to increase the number of owner-occupied residences as well.

“From an economic standpoint, all the stakeholders benefit from the improvement of this abandoned property,” said Michael Grauwelman, Land Bank Executive Director.

The Land Bank’s loan will be repaid at closing, and the funds will be put back to work, said Carolyn Rice, Land Bank Chair. “Our goal is to stabilize neighborhoods, and this pilot program is a sustainable approach that achieves the city’s and the Land Bank’s goals.

Ross said he hopes the pilot program will result in a profitable sale and a continuing partnership with the Land Bank. “We hope to use the profits from this sale and put them back into a similar renovation project in the city.”
