City of Montgomery Surplus Property
Ground Zero is along Rosa Parks Avenue
Cities sometimes end up owning real estate when property owners fail to pay property taxes.
A Montgomery city map of those properties makes it look looks like there is a big red stain in the heart of the city.
The big red spot is actually a mass of red stick-pins, each pin marks a parcel of property that used to be part of a thriving neighborhood on Rosa Parks Avenue in Montgomery, but is now owned by the city.
A broker hired by the city says she’s making progress selling the parcels. The properties are sold “as in”, and there are some restrictions on buying them.
