No more auctions for "flood homes" in Fargo

FARGO, N.D. (KFGO AM) -- The city of Fargo will no longer be auctioning off the homes they acquire in their flood buyout program.

City engineer Nathan Boerboom says there's no longer a market for the home auctions, where prospective homeowners pay to move the big homes to new destinations.

Now, the properties will be going straight to demolition contractors, who will have the opportunity to sell or salvage the house.

Boerboom said homes still left won't likely be bought for relocation.

Instead, they'll be broken down for their parts.

The city has about 30 homes to sell off now and they’re not done buying out more homes.

City commissioners approved the change last night.
