"I honestly came into this thinking we would approve one house," Piccirillo said. "I never thought we would do three."
Community Development spent no money on advertising and was able to get more for the houses than expected, Piccirillo said.
"These houses have been just sitting on a list," Piccirillo said. "I think what that shows you is that if you do some active marketing and give some reasonable prices you could do something really productive with these houses."
Piccirillo was not sure what to expect going into Wednesday's auction, but with the amount of interest that was exhibited in the program from residents he will push for another auction as soon as possible, he said.
"We can do this every two months," Piccirillo said. "It didn't cost us any money. We didn't hire an auctioneer. We just did it."
