The Neighborhood and Community Services Department is facilitating a federal grant designed to offer communities the option to purchase foreclosed homes for rehabilitation. Neighborhood Stabilization Program (NSP) funds were made available to the City of Janesville on two occasions. These funds have allowed the City to purchase several homes in Janesville's central city area for rehabilitation and selling to low-to-moderate income individuals or families.
To date, 15 homes have been rehabilitated and re-sold; one new home has been built and sold, six blighted properties were demolished and one vacant lot has been sold to an adjoining property owner. Six more homes will be for sale in the next year.
Homes Available for Sale
Sorry, no homes are currently listed for sale. Please check back soon. Three additional homes are expected to be listed for sale in 2014. Neighborhood and Community Services has contracted with Beth Hanthorn of Century 21 Affiliated to serve as the city's real estate agent. Individuals interested in touring these homes or learning the income requirements for purchasing these homes are asked to contact Beth directly at 608-346-8189 or by email.
