City to negotiate house sale

SWARTZ CREEK — The City of Swartz Creek is getting ready to seek bids for the sale of a renovated house on Don Shenk Drive. Once empty and dilapidated, the house has undergone extensive renovations since the city purchased it in a tax foreclosure sale last year. The city has invested about $125,000 in the project. “We expect to get $130,000 to $150,000 for it,” said Mayor David Krueger. “It’s one of the nicest homes in the community.” Mayor Pro Tem Dennis Pinkston added, “It’s gone from the worst house on that street to the best.” City Manager Adam Zettel said home sales are picking up in the Swartz Creek area. A 982-squarefoot house on Fairchild Street recently sold for $120,000. New listings in Winchester Village include a 1,036-square-foot home with a $139,999 asking price, and a 1,677-square-foot home with a $164,999 price tag. The city cannot profit from the sale, so any funds over and above the amount the city has invested will go back to the Genesee County Land Bank. — L.R.
