CDBG Housing Grant

IMG 3387

Home for Sale - 112 Iowa

The City purchased 112 Iowa as part of a Community Development Block Grant Housing Rehabilitation Program. The home underwent a major repair and renovation. All doors and windows were replaced, a full rewire was done as well as replacing all ceiling fixtures, outside lights and wiring to the garage, new kitchen cabinets, sink and dishwasher, new water heater, new flooring throughout the house, bathroom tub/shower, vanity, toilet, fixtures and mirror, removed paneling and wallpaper, repaired/replaced walls and painted the interior and exterior of the house. The City did work to the yard, removing rock, brush, an old fence and clothesline, etc., leveled out the front yard, planted grass seed and decorative bushes as well as installed a new sidewalk and re-rocked the driveway.

The new appraisal for this house lists the fair market value at $55,000. The city is asking $49,500. It is a 140 ft x150 ft lot. The house has 1,246 sq ft of living space that includes 3 bedrooms, 1 bath, living room, family room, kitchen with eat in dining area and laundry/utility room. The detached garage/shop measures 24 ft x 30 ft, has electricity and a wood stove.

Since this is a CDBG Housing Grant project, the purchaser must Low Income qualify through the State. This is a process that is handled by the Grant Administrator, Susan Galemore, who works for the Southeast Kansas Regional Planning Commission. Applications are available at the City Clerk’s Office. They can either be turned in to the City Clerk’s office and we will mail them to Galemore or applicants can mail them to her directly. The individual purchasing the house is responsible for acquiring their own financing.

For more information, please contact City Hall at 620-795-4433 between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. M-F. Viewing of the house is by appointment only either through a realtor or the City. Watch for an open house date coming soon!

Oswego, the Labette County seat, is located at the intersection of Highways 59/160, on a bluff overlooking the Neosho River Valley.  Oswego was fortunate that a group of pioneer ladies had a vision, and purchased acreage along the bluff that is now Historical Riverside Park, our hidden gem.  Over 80 acres of beautifully landscaped park includes a large public swimming pool, playground equipment, shelter houses, 10,000 s.f. community center, tennis courts, basketball court, RV park, ball fields, and home of the Labette County Fairgrounds. It is the perfect location for family reunions, weddings, company events and picnics, and other organized events.
