304 E. Ohio Ave.

According to Knox County Land Bank President Jeff Gottke, the property at 304 E. Ohio Ave. in Mount Vernon has been vacant for "several years."

MOUNT VERNON – An 120-year-old home in the heart of Mount Vernon is expected to receive “a total renovation,” according to Knox County Land Bank President Jeff Gottke.

Mount Vernon-based Bargain Homes LLC purchased the property at 304 E. Ohio Ave. from the land bank for $1,500 on Jan. 23, according to records from the Knox County auditor’s office. The land bank acquired the property in August through a tax foreclosure hearing.

Representatives from Bargain Homes LLC could not be reached for comment this week. In speaking to their realtor, Gottke said the development firm indicated it would completely revamp the two-story home, which was built in 1900.

“They’re gonna do a total renovation inside,” Gottke said. “They’re going to add a deck on the back, or off the side, and a detached garage.”

The land bank’s mission is “to turn vacant, tax delinquent, and other properties into assets that enhance the quality of life and economy in Knox County by creating green space, community property, and safe, clean, and affordable housing,” according to its website.

After the land bank sells a property to a developer, it files a lien against the property and sets an agreed-upon time frame for the developer to finish renovations. If the developer cannot finish renovations during that time frame, it will be charged with paying the lien.

The land bank has given Bargain Homes LLC six months to renovate the property, which Gottke said is “kind of our max time frame without special circumstances.” It has filed a $25,000 lien against the property.

Gottke will inspect the property after the six-month time frame expires. If it meets the land bank’s redevelopment standards, the land bank will release the lien. The new owners will then be allowed to sell the property.

According to Gottke, the property at 304 E. Ohio Ave. has been vacant for “several years.” It was condemned by the city, its windows were boarded up, and a good portion of the exterior paint had chipped off.

Former land bank attorney Jeffrey Harris filed foreclosure actions against the previous property owner last year. Through an expedited foreclosure process, typically used on long-vacant properties where the owner cannot be located, the county’s Board of Revision held a foreclosure hearing for the property. The previous owner was given 28 days to pay off taxes and bring the property into compliance with local building codes.

Because the property owner did not complete these actions, the land bank received the property through a sheriff’s deed.

“It sounds like everything kind of works in favor of the treasurer/land bank, but the property owner’s due process rights are maintained throughout that process,” Gottke said. “It just speeds it up a little bit and bypasses common pleas court.”

If the property owner would have appealed the foreclosure, the land bank would have asked for the hearing to be moved to the common pleas court, Gottke explained. This was not the case.

“We did get a request to enter the property to get personal artifacts out of it…” Gottke recalled. “The owner’s family asked to do that before it was transferred to the land bank, so they could go in and get personal stuff, which we were glad to do.”

After acquiring the property in August, Gottke said he was relieved to find a buyer this month. The historic home “has some character and some charm to it,” Gottke said, but given its condition, its future seemed bleak.

“Our next option was going to be to tear it down,” he said.

Gottke said the new owners plan to renovate the single-family home and sell it. The house contains four bedrooms, two bathrooms and a basement. It is valued at $46,980 after improvements, according to the county auditor’s website.

“It’s been vacant for several years, and we don’t want to keep any more eyesores in the community than we have to, so I was really glad we got a buyer for that property,” Gottke said. “I think it will make a big impact on that neighborhood.”
