Generate Revenue

Across the country local governments are looking for ways to create economic opportunity for their neighborhoods and individual residents, while reducing blighted, vacant properties that remain a burden on city budgets. 

GovPilot's online Real Estate Auction Services are available at no cost to local governments. GovPilot provides end-to-end capabilities to list, advertise, and host online property auctions, including the collection of digital payments. 

In the immediate term, the sale of vacant properties through an online auction creates instant income for the local government and eliminates the cost of maintenance.

In the long-term, the revitalization of neighborhoods serves to increase property values city-wide and generates revenue in the form of ongoing property and sales tax.

Provide Opportunity

Blighted and vacant properties represent an economic opportunity for residents to own their homes and places of business, thereby reinvesting in the communities in which they live and work.

Help constituents achieve the American dream by becoming real estate owners at affordable prices. Set terms such as a reimbursable registration fee and conditions such as the requirement for homebuyers to live in the purchased property for a minimum amount of time. 

Online real estate auctions make home and business ownership more accessible, and help municipalities revitalize their neighborhoods and budget - a win for local governments and residents alike.

The GovPilot team stands ready to help your government achieve its economic development goals.
