City of Springfield soliciting bids for 20 surplus properties in city limits

SPRINGFIELD, Mo. -- The City of Springfield’s Purchasing division is soliciting sealed bids for the sale of various parcels of City-owned property at 20 locations in Springfield.

They sale ends 3 p.m. November 1.

Sixteen of the properties are located in city of Springfield-registered neighborhoods. Many of the properties were once the site of one or more dangerous buildings that have since been demolished by the city. Some were forfeited to the city as a result of delinquent sewer liens.

When determining an asking price for a surplus property, the city considers comparable properties in the neighborhood, as well as the investment the city has made in the property, such as the cost of demolition or the payment of any liens held on the property, according to Buyer Kara Daniel.

“The city is hoping to recover the costs accrued with the acquisition and maintenance of these properties,” Daniel said. “In most cases, the revenue from the sale of surplus property goes into the Police and Firefighters Retirement System fund. One of the goals of this program is to encourage the development of affordable housing, which benefits our community. The surplus property program also offers the opportunity for adjacent property owners to invest in their neighborhoods and expand their properties affordably.”

It is desired by the city to award and sell each property on an individual basis to qualified individuals or firms with the most favorable bid for each property. This determination shall be made in accordance with Resolution 9711.

The City reserves the right to award multiple properties to a bidder if determined in the best interest of the City. The City will convey the properties described herein to the successful bidder by special warranty deed or quit claim deed.

The city reserves the right to place any necessary covenants on the property as necessary, based on the proposed usage described on the bidder's proposal form. To be considered for these properties, bidders must be current on city taxes and have no existing liens on any property currently owned in the city of Springfield.

Please submit bids to Kara Daniel, Buyer, 218 E. Central, Springfield MO 65802. Submitted envelopes should be marked "SALE BID #034-2018SB Sale of Real Property Group 25."
