GLOUCESTER CITY, NJ-- The city of Gloucester has announced via a PR Media release that it will conduct an online auction of 32 properties starting on August 9 and ending on August 15. Property inspections, on specified properties, will be held on Sunday, August 13 from 12 noon to 1 pm and all others can be previewed at your leisure. The City has hired Rich Warner, president, and founder of Warner Real Estate and Auction Company, Woodstown, NJ to conduct the auction. The bids begin at $2,500.
The press release states, "Warner Real Estate & Auction Company, a leading real estate auction firm in New Jersey, has been selected to manage the marketing of the properties and online only auction event. Warner Real Estate & Auction Co has extensive experience working with government entities including Washington Township, Woolwich Township, and the USDA Rural Housing Service. A wide range of properties is available, from single family homes and building lots to a former tavern with a second story apartment."
Warner said, ” We are excited to be chosen by the City of Gloucester to manage the sale and be part of the revitalization of the City of Gloucester. Putting these properties in the hands of individuals that can return them to productivity and back on the City’s tax rolls.”
Included in the PR announcement is a four-minute video that includes a slide show of various locations in Gloucester City. Howard Clark the city’s Director of Community Development is the narrator. Clark emphasizes the public transportation that is available and the city’s close location to the shore, the state capital, and Philadelphia. A new revelation that Clark announced was the coming of the light rail in 2019 which will run through Gloucester City from Camden City linking Camden County with communities in Gloucester County. “If you don’t have cars this is the place to be,” he said. He touts the construction of the new middle school and “we have the best public services around, the best police department, the best full-time fire company.”
Sales of Gloucester City properties are at an all-time low according to a June Philadelphia Inquirer article.
“It is our hope that we cannot only raise funds but also breathe new life into the areas where these properties are situated by bringing in new investment and development,” said Clark.
The cost for using PR services start at $99 for basic, $159 for standard, $249 for advance and $369 for premium. The city chose the premium. From the PR website; “the premium release includes video, attachments, images, and links to engage your customers and encourage people to share your story. Your news goes to premier news outlets like the New York Times, USA Today and more through the Associated Press.”
Regarding the light rail line, it was first proposed in May 2009 by then Gov. Jon S Corzine. The plan called for an 18-mile light rail line between Camden and Glassboro. The Camden-Glassboro Line would someday be extended 19 miles from Glassboro to Millville in the center of Cumberland County.Construction of the estimated $1.6 billion project between just Camden and Glassboro was to begin in 2016 and be finished in time for passenger service to start in 2019, according to Delaware River Port Authority documents. However, because of environmental and other studies, construction on that project was delayed.
With the recent increase in the gas tax talk about rejuvenating those plans began in January. Camden County Freeholder Director Jeffrey Nash, who is also is the vice-chairman of the Delaware River Port Authority Board stated on January 14 that he expects the project to be revived and perhaps completed in as little as five years. source https://philadelphia.cbslocal.com
