The Great House Sale II is an opportunity for prospective home owners to purchase formerly tax delinquent and blighted properties at low prices and renovate them as their primary residence. All properties will need extensive renovations including new mechanical systems and finishes. The Allegheny City Central Association (ACCA) will work to link interested potential purchasers with local banks that make purchase rehab mortgages.
The project is designed to support ACCA’s vision of transforming all of our neighborhood’s vacant lots and empty storefronts by filling them with thriving individuals, commerce and families of all kinds. We plan to return vacant properties to productive use and give owner occupants the ability to buy in the neighborhood at an attractive price and renovate to their specifications and budget.
The main focus of the program is the area north of Taylor Avenue. We are currently pursuing acquisitions on Jacksonia St., Carrington St., Buena Vista St., and E. Jefferson St. We hope to expand it to the area east of Federal Street in the near future.
ACCA hopes to begin marketing homes in fall 2013, and at that time reservations will be taken for specific homes. These properties will not have clear title and be ready to close until spring 2014.
