It is located on a busy street yet there is NO For Sale sign on the property. The property isn’t listed with a realtor. It’s almost like a backroom deal already exists and the Town is trying to say they advertised it while doing the absolute minimum required by law. Monday night we heard “staff is always looking out for taxpayers” during the Council meeting.
How is a secret sale doing what’s best for taxpayers?
The 4 units appraised for $650,000 (FOIA). Let’s see how close Normal gets to that number – if they have any bidders. Laws apply, let’s see if they are followed.
This is the second property in recent months where Normal has usurped local realtors. The Ft. Jesse property sale to the wife of an employee was the first.
Paying attention Realtors Association?
Meanwhile, the owners of the defunct Chateau are using realtors, I hope they know Bloomington owns the Conference Center. Funny how that is never discussed!
They actually want people to know it’s for sale, Normal obviously doesn’t want potential buyers to know their property is.
