Alex Cooper's auction notice. (www.alexcooper.com)

Yesterday, the Department of Housing and Community Development announced it would be actioning off 18 properties through its Property Acquisition and Disposition Division. They’re single and multi-family units as well as vacant lots located in six different wards, and the pictures are cringeworthy—they all look like a ton of work.

In the last auction—the first of its kind, in January 2009—the Department made a little profit of $3.7 million on the properties it bought and resold to non-profits, certified businesses, and people looking to use them as single-family homes. This one will take place at 2:00 p.m. on June 30 at the Convention Center.
