Why is the City of Parkville selling this property at auction?

Through the natural course of running a municipality, the City has acquired this property, including a failing private road and unsound home (both of which are being removed prior to sale). The City has no use for the land and does not wish to invest additional public funds.  As a result, the Parkville Board of Alderman has made the decision to use the transparency of public auction to sell the land to the highest bidder over $25,000.


Auctioneer’s Note: This is an unusual auction which in turn means an unusual buying opportunity for the general public. The City of Parkville has wisely committed to removing the road and structure for the convenience of the auction buyer. The result is an unprecedented opportunity to purchase 7+ acres of vacant land in the lovely Riverchase development. It will all sell at public auction to the highest bidder over $25,000 on December 21st!
