Offer Process Q&A:


  1. Can the general public submit higher offers after Feb 16 even if no initial offer was submitted?
    • Yes, as stated the offer process anyone can make higher offers after February 16th. In the best interest of the tax payers the City’s goal is to maximize the amount received for each lot.
  1. In the unlikely event that a buyer ends up submitting the highest offer on more than one lot, but only wants to purchase one, can those deposits be rolled into the purchase price of the preferred lot and others be sold instead to the next highest bidder?
    • No. Deposits will stay with the lots of which they are offered. If the winning bidder does not follow through with purchase of a lot they will be still be subject to stipulations of the offer process, the deposit will not be transferred or returned.

  1. For those awarded the right to purchase, does the deposit go toward the purchase of the lot?
    • Yes. The deposit will be applied toward the purchase of the lot.

    • Building Permit and Impact fees are based on the size of the lot and home. Click here to view a sample of our building permit fee calculation form. This form does not show permit, plan check, and inspection fees. All fees will be calculated and determined upon receipt of a building permit. All fees will be based on the actual home and lot size and may vary from what is shown on this sample calculation form. It is the bidder’s sole responsibility to research the amount and applicability of these fees.
  3. After initial high offers are posted, if no higher bids are placed for a particular lot within the 2-day time frame, does bidding for that lot and then awarded to the highest bidder; and can that bidder then begin closing on the lot.
    • Yes, the lot will be awarded in the event that no counter offer is made, and then the winning party can begin closing on the lot.
