Hagerstown to sell three houses to Habitat for Humanity

February 02, 2012

The Hagerstown City Council has tentatively agreed to sell three houses to Habitat for Humanity.

The five-member council Tuesday night unanimously approved the introduction of an ordinance to sell the houses to Habitat for Humanity of Washington County.

The homes, which will be sold as a package deal for $100,000, are located at 226 N. Locust St., 25 E. Lee St. and 33 Elizabeth St.

The city acquired the properties in 2006 and 2008 with Community Block Grant funds, according to officials.

The single-family homes were renovated and listed for sale as part of the CDBG Homeownership Program, but never sold.

Habitat for Humanity plans to make further improvements to the properties, including an addition to one of the homes, before turning them over to new owners, according to city documents.
