DC Prepares for Another Vacant Property Auction

As part of DC's Department of Housing and Community Development's (DHCD) commitment to clear its backlog of vacant properties, the agency is preparing for another online auction.              

Next month, DHCD and Alex Cooper Auction House will make ten properties available for the public to bid on, all with the intention of putting the unused sites on the path to be developed into workforce housing. Last year, 33 vacant and blighted houses, small buildings and unimproved lots were auctioned, grossing $123 million for the city.

Each site has an initial deposit of $5,000 and the bidding will open at $20,000. The bidding opens May 10th. The properties are:
