Purchase Vacant Property From Metro
Do you want to purchase a house to fix up and live in?
Do you want to restore homes and put them on the market?
Do you want to take ownership of and maintain a vacant lot on your block?
Louisville Metro Government is looking for residents who want to improve their neighborhoods.
Currently, the Landbank owns roughly 400 properties and strives to put them back into productive use to improve our neighborhoods by increasing property values, stimulate the tax base, and reducing crime rates.
What is the Landbank? The Landbank Authority, a cooperative effort by the major taxing authorities in Louisville Metro (city of Louisville, commonwealth of Kentucky and Jefferson County Public Schools). Its mission is to put vacant and abandoned properties back into productive use through concerned residents like you.
