SUMMARY:

                                          

The Community Redevelopment Agency has stated its desire to comprehensively market available CRA-owned properties in the Urban Core Community Redevelopment Area.  To date, the positioning of parcels for redevelopment has been an effective tool in the successful revitalization of Pensacola’s Downtown Urban Core.  On August 9, 2016, the CRA approved a contract with NAI/Halford for Realtor Services for disposition of CRA-owned properties. 

 

In keeping with CRA and City of Pensacola policies, the properties for disposition must be declared surplus and appraised.  The Baylen property was declared surplus by the CRA on December 5, 2016.  A market appraisal determined the property’s value to be $510,000. 

 

The disposition plan included a 30 day Notice of Disposition/RFP published on December 23, 2016 in the Pensacola News Journal, in compliance with the requirements of section 163.380 of the Florida Statues. The property was posted to the numerous multiple listing services subscribed to by NAI/Halford.  Pursuant the CRA’s contract with Halford, five percent (5%) of the gross sales price will be paid for realtor commission fees from the proceeds of the property sale.

 

It is recommended that the City Council approve the recommendation of the Community Redevelopment Agency to award the contract for sale of the surplus property at 150 South Baylen Street to Studer Properties in the amount of $510,000.00 and authorize the CRA Chairperson to execute all necessary documents.
