The City of Paducah, Kentucky is requesting sealed proposals for the purchase and transfer of available real property for redevelopment. Property will only be sold if immediate development is proposed and the probability of such activity is high.
All property is sold “as is” and with no implied warranty of clear title. The buyer is responsible for ensuring clear title prior to purchase. If the purchaser decides to purchase without the benefit of a title exam, a quitclaim deed will be granted.
To be considered for these properties, bidders must be current on City taxes and have no existing liens on any property currently owned in the City of Paducah.
The address, lot dimensions, zoning information, and an aerial map of each property are available below.
Proposals must include at a minimum the following information:
All bids must be submitted in a sealed envelope clearly marked “Sealed Bid” with the address of the property and the bidder's name and contract information. Persons interested in submitting a proposal for more than one property must submit a separate written offer for each property.
Proposals may be submitted in person or mailed to
City of Paducah, Planning Department
300 South 5th Street
Paducah, KY 42003
You may submit a bid anytime. When a bid is submitted, Planning will establish a bid deadline, advertise for anyone else wishing to submit a bid, and set a bid opening date. The City of Paducah reserves the right to reject any or all proposals submitted. For additional information, call the Planning Department at 270-444-8690.
All bids will be evaluated by a point system. Any bid scoring less than 100 total points will be considered incomplete. Incomplete bids will be rejected and returned to the bidder.
As an incentive to purchase the lot, the City has several single-family home plans that may be used at no cost to the buyer. Any modifications to the plans will be at the buyer’s expense. An artist rendering of a front façade and floor plans can be found in the House Plans Booklet.
