Houses for Sale to Relocate

House Moving Information Session April 24, 2014


Terms of Auction


The City of Mason City will be offering for sale eight houses, along with their detached accessory structures, that were acquired as part of the City’s 100% CDBG-funded flood mitigation buyout.  Buyers must remove all structures from the property within 120 days of the sale; the land will not convey with the house.  All but one of these houses is historic and all are excellent candidates for relocation.  The houses will be sold at auction on May 12, 2014 at 5:30 PM in the 2nd floor conference room at City Hall.  The seven historic homes were winterized, boarded and monitored in hopes of relocation based on their historical significance. 

 

An informational meeting for those persons who may be interested in purchasing and moving one of these houses will be held on Thursday, April 24, 2014 at 5:30 PM in the second floor conference room at City Hall.  Staff from the Development Services Department will provide information on the houses that are for sale.  Attendees will also learn more about the process to obtain the required moving permit and the permit approval timeline.  Open Houses are scheduled for the following week.

 

The houses are located in the East Park Place, Meadowbrook and Parker’s Woods park neighborhoods.  A complete list of the properties along with photos are listed below.

 

The structures must be removed from their lots no later than September 9, 2014.   Any structures not removed within this time frame will be demolished by the City.
