    In court for many hours. The most notable item was the intended use for the many truckloads of fill dirt that has recently been dumped onto the site. It was revealed that the dirt was intended to fill the mechanic wells and other pits on the site.

    Today’s resolution: The City of Columbus (plaintiff) has reached an agreement with the defendant (Minnie M. McGee).

    The City and the defendant agreed that the property is not in compliance and that the plaintiff (City of Columbus) is entitled to a judgment of $30,000.

    The City and the defendant have agreed to a period of six months during which the defendant is to sell the property.

    The defendant will immediately place the property on the MLS at an asking price of $500,000.

    The piles of dirt brought into the property will remain and will not be moved.

    If after 6 months (concluding date being March 4, 2014) the property is not sold, the plaintiff (City of Columbus) will be entitled to collect on the judgment of $30,000 in any manner that it chooses. The costs of collecting on the judgment are to be borne by the defendant.

    The agreement stipulates the defendant withdraw appeals related to the case.

    The running fines of $250/day cease as of 9/9/2013.

    The Plaintiff shall only collect on the judgment if the property is not sold per the agreement.

    At the risk of creating the ultimate CU firestorm, it occurs to me this might be an ideal site for Wonderland, assuming they really are going to move forward.

    I like and respect the people involved in Wonderland, but at this point, I don’t want to hear the name unless its after they’ve closed a deal completely. No more speculative stuff.

    Sounds damn lenient. No one is touching that place at $500k…where does that number even come from??

    More bullshit delay and “let’s see.”

    Yeah, I thought that price seemed awfully high too…not to mention, that would allow Minnie to make a 116% profit on it…are you kidding me?!?

    C’mon. How often does real estate ever actually sell for the “asking price”?

    No one is suggesting it will, but listing price determines interest which determines offers. Pricing a property way outside the realm of reality means no one will even look at it seriously.

    It’s a whole lot easier to buy neat old buildings than to fix them up.
