To determine the renovations required, the Land Bank performs a pre-sale inspection. The Pre-Sale Inspection report notes the renovations that must be completed for the deed to be transferred. The Land Bank does not require specific materials to be used only that the deficiencies noted are remedied. The goal is that renovations result in a Warm, Dry, Safe, Clean home that meets code. A Reference Guide for Quality Standards is provided for your convenience.  

To make an offer on a Land Bank property simply complete the DIY Application Package and submit it to . All applications will be reviewed after the offer deadline. If there are multiple offers the LB reserves the right to ask for highest and best offers. Accepted offers will be notified once buyer qualifications have been verified.

  • Have a clean track record as a property owner
  • Commit, under a legal agreement, to bring it up code and make other improvements required by the Land Bank.

Remember: The deed is held in escrow by the Land Bank until renovations are complete.
