THE PROPERTIES located at 223 and 225 Shiawassee St. in Corunna, formerly belonging to attorney Arnold Dunchock, recently entered their second round of bidding after failing to draw any bidders in a previous auction that concluded in August. The two parcels must be purchased together, at a minimum bid of $100. The potential buyer would also have to pay 10 percent of their winning bid as a buyer’s premium, $30 for a deed, and the back taxes, which amount to $1,042.47. The online auction service Michigan County Tax Auctions is auctioning the bundled properties, and more information can be found at www.tax-sale.info. The bundle is listed as Lot 6044.
The website describes the structure as an older, two-story commercial building that includes apartments on the upper level. It is noted that the building has been condemned by the city, and the condition of the building is listed as “Poor” with “Extensive Debris.” The city red-tagged and cordoned off the building due to its state of deterioration. The roof and west wall pose a risk of falling debris.
Should the property make it through the second round of bidding without being purchased, the properties would then be sold by the city to the Michigan Land Bank after Jan. 1, 2018. Bids will be opened on Thursday, Oct. 12, and online bids must be submitted by Monday, Oct. 9.
