THIS PROPERTY IS CURRENTLY LISTED WITH THE LOCAL CENTURY 21 AGENT FOR $60,000 - UNIQUE PROPERTY FOR AUCTION PLUS I WILL THROW IN A STUNT PLANE AND A CAR IN A TREE FOR ONLY $25,000 STARTING PRICE!!! 

15 BUILDINGS IN TOTAL - SOME BUILDINGS ARE GOOD AND OTHERS NEED TLC - IF IT WERE ALL PERFECT I WOULD BE ASKING A LOT MORE. HOWEVER I MUST STRESS THAT THE MAIN BUILDINGS ARE ALL IN USEABLE CONDITION. YOU COULD MOVE INTO THE MAIN BUILDINGS TOMORROW ONCE YOU GET THE ELECTRIC CHECKED OVER & THE WATER SWITCHED BACK ON.

AS I RECEIVED A FEW EMAILS TO SAY THAT THE ORIGINAL LISTING WAS UNCLEAR I AM OFFERING THIS UPDATED LISTING WITH MORE BUILDINGS - ELECTRIC & RUNNING WATER WERE BOTH WORKING ON THE PROPERTY BEFORE THE UTILITIES WERE SHUT OFF.

YES I AM SELLING MY WILD WEST TOURIST TOWN LOCATED IN CLIFTON KANSAS  - ZIP CODE 66937 - EXCELLENT LOCATION ON MAIN STREET NEXT TO THE CITY HALL & LIBRARY - SITS DIRECTLY ON HIGHWAY 9 WHICH RUNS ACROSS THE PLAINS OF KANSAS FOR SEVERAL HUNDRED MILES. POPULATION OF CLIFTON IS AROUND 600 & THERE ARE LARGER TOWNS OF 1-5000 PEOPLE WITHIN SHORT DRIVING DISTANCE - THE NEAREST TOWN WITH A WALMART, MCDONALDS, ETC IS CONCORDIA KANSAS 20 MILES AWAY, THE NEAREST BIG CITY IS MANHATTAN KANSAS AROUND 1 HOUR AWAY WHICH HAS THE K STATE UNIVERSITY, AN AIRPORT, 100,000 PEOPLE AND EVERYTHING YOU COULD EVER NEED. THE VERY FIRST COWTOWN IN THE WEST - ABILENE, KANSAS - WHICH HAS ITS OWN SUCCESSFUL REPLICA WILD WEST THEMED TOURIST TOWN IS JUST 40 MILES SOUTH OF CLIFTON SO I KNOW THIS PROPERTY COULD BE A BIG SUCCESS.


LOT SIZE IS APPROX 0.75 ACRES - IT IS MADE UP OF A MIXTURE OF PERMANENT BUILDINGS AND WILD WEST THEMED BUILDINGS

PERMANENT BUILDINGS INCLUDED IN THE SALE:

THERE IS A 2200 SQ FT RETAIL SHOWROOM (THE RED,WHITE & BLUE BUILDING WITH THE TRIANGULAR ROOF) WHICH WOULD CONVERT INTO A NICE HOUSE IF YOU WANTED TO GO DOWN THAT ROUTE - IT HAS A LARGE RETAIL FLOOR, 2 OFFICE ROOMS, A BATHROOM & A LARGE LOFT AREA. THERE ARE ALSO SEVERAL LARGE STORAGE BUILDINGS AS PART OF THE PROPERTY USED TO BE A LUMBER YARD - I HAVE ONLY MEASURED THE SHOWROOM BUT WITH THE OTHER STORAGE BUILDINGS YOU PROBABLY HAVE ANOTHER 5000 SQ FT, MAYBE MORE OF USABLE SPACE FOR A BUSINESS.

THE REST OF THE PROPERTY IS MADE UP OF WILD WEST THEMED BUILDINGS - A MIXTURE OF REPLICAS & ORIGINAL 1800S BUILDINGS - INCLUDING A 2 STORY WILD WEST HOTEL, A SALOON, DENTISTS OFFICE, LAND OFFICE, NEWSPAPER OFFICE WITH AN ANTIQUE PRINTING PRESS, SHERIFFS OFFICE WITH A BIG OLD SAFE, ETC & A FEW MORE WAITING FOR YOUR INSPIRATION. SOME OF THE WILD WEST BUILDINGS JUST NEED SOME COSMETICS TO GET THEM IN TIP TOP CONDITION AGAIN & SOME OF THEM NEED MORE WORK. THIS PROPERTY IS HUGE AND THERE IS PLENTY OF ROOM FOR EXPANSION - I EVEN HAVE RAILROAD TRACKS INSTALLED ON PART OF THE PROPERTY IN CASE YOU WANT TO ADD A TRAIN CAR OR STATION! 

THERE ARE ALSO SEVERAL UNIQUE ATTENTION GRABBING EXHIBITS ON THIS PROPERTY WHICH ARE INCLUDED IN THE AUCTION - NAMELY A REAL STUNT PLANE THAT HAS BEEN FLOWN INTO THE ROOF OF A BUILDING & A CAR IN A TREE. IF YOU WANTED TO GET SOME OF THE MONEY BACK ONCE YOU HAVE PURCHASED THE PROPERTY YOU COULD ALWAYS TAKE THE PLANE AND CAR OUT - I KNOW THAT THE PLANE COST THE PREVIOUS OWNER $4500 TO INSTALL & I HAVE HAD OFFERS TO BUY BOTH OF THEM (YES EVEN 2 OFFERS FOR THE CAR IN THE TREE!) BUT I HAVE KEPT THEM IN BECAUSE THIS PROPERTY SITS RIGHT ON HIGHWAY 9 & THEY ARE SO UNIQUE & GET SO MUCH ATTENTION FROM PASSING TRAFFIC 

THERE IS ALSO PLENTY OF GREENERY & TREES THROUGHOUT THE PROPERTY & I HAVE THE LAWNS MOWED REGULARLY FOR A VERY REASONABLE PRICE BY A LOCAL GENTLEMAN WHO WOULD BE THRILLED TO STAY ON AND LOOK AFTER THEM.


THIS PROPERTY WOULD BE PERFECT FOR ANTIQUES, FLEA MARKET/SWAP MEETS, AUCTIONS, CAR LOT, ARTISTS STUDIO, TOURIST ATTRACTION ETC. THE PROPERTY IS SO LARGE THAT YOU COULD EASILY USE ONE PART FOR YOURSELF & RENT OUT THE OTHER BUILDINGS IN TOWN - CENTURY 21 DOES  HAVE THE DETAILS OF SEVERAL PEOPLE IN TOWN WHO ARE LOOKING TO RENT THE RETAIL SHOWROOM OUT BUT I AM ONLY LOOKING TO SELL AT THIS POINT - HOWEVER YOU WOULD HAVE THE POSSIBILITY TO RENT OUT PART OF THE PROPERTY FROM DAY 1 OF OWNERSHIP IF YOU WANTED TO DO THAT & THE CENTURY 21 OFFICE CAN HANDLE THE RENTING IF YOU DIDN'T WANT TO DO IT YOURSELF.

 

AGAIN THIS IS NO JOKE - I HAVE THIS PROPERTY LISTED WITH THE LOCAL REALTOR AT CENTURY 21 IN CONCORDIA KANSAS FOR $60,000. ONLY DIFFERENCE IN THIS AUCTION & THE REALTOR LISTING IS THAT THE 1800s BRICK BANK BUILDING (TO THE RIGHT OF PICTURE 12) IS NOT INCLUDED IN THIS AUCTION & I HAVE TAKEN $35,000 OFF THE STARTING PRICE. BUT THE BANK IS AVAILABLE SEPARATELY IF REQUIRED.

I HAVE INCLUDED A COUPLE OF PHOTOS OF WHEN WHAT NOT CITY WAS LAST OPEN TO THE PUBLIC TO SHOW YOU HOW IT COULD LOOK. THE PICTURES WERE TAKEN WHILE THE BUILDINGS WERE BEING USED FOR A FLEA MARKET & AUCTION. THE REST OF THE PHOTOS ARE ALL CURRENT TAKEN EARLIER THIS WEEK. THE CADILLAC IN THE GROUND AND THE WHAT NOT CITY SIGN HAVE SINCE BEEN REMOVED THOUGH THE NEW OWNER IS FREE TO NAME THE TOWN WHATEVER YOU WOULD LIKE TO CALL IT. 

THE PROPERTY IS OWNED FREE & CLEAR AND THE PROPERTY TAXES ARE ALL UP TO DATE.  SALE CAN BE COMPLETED THROUGH THE REALTOR & A LOCAL ATTORNEY AS WITH ANY PROPERTY SALE.

PROPERTY ADDRESS IS 108E-120E PARALLEL STREET, CLIFTON KANSAS 66937

PROPERTY ADDRESS OF THE 1800S BRICK BANK IS 106E PARALLEL STREET,CLIFTON KANSAS 66937

AGAIN I AM SAD TO LET GO OF THIS PROPERTY BUT I NEED TO SELL - THIS IS A HUGE PROPERTY WHICH MAKES UP APPROX 16 CITY LOTS - I DOUBT YOU WOULD EVER BE ABLE TO FIND A UNIQUE PROPERTY LIKE THIS AT SUCH A LOW STARTING PRICE. AS I MENTIONED PARTS OF IT NEED TLC BUT SOMEBODY IS GOING TO GET A GREAT DEAL. THE RETAIL SHOWROOM ON ITS OWN IS WORTH AROUND $25,000!

SEE QUESTIONS BELOW FOR MORE INFO ABOUT THIS PROPERTY - TO AVOID CONFUSION SINCE I ANSWERED PHIL'S QUESTION BELOW I HAVE ADDED 3 MORE BUILDINGS TO THIS AUCTION INCLUDING THE RETAIL SHOWROOM WITH RUNNING WATER THAT I SAID I WOULD SELL SEPARATELY FOR $20,000. SO YOU NOW HAVE RUNNING WATER & A BATHROOM ON THIS PROPERTY.

UPDATE 3RD MAY - THE AUCTION IS NOW ABOUT HALFWAY THROUGH & BOTH MYSELF & THE REALTOR ARE BEGINNING TO RECEIVE A LOT OF INTEREST IN THIS PROPERTY. WE ALSO HAVE SEVERAL LOCAL PEOPLE WHO ARE INTERESTED IN EITHER PURCHASING OR RENTING THE RETAIL SHOWROOM BUILDING & THE OTHER BUILDINGS SEPARATELY & SPLITTING THIS PROPERTY UP. THIS IS A ROUTE THAT I MAY DECIDE TO GO DOWN AS THE VALUE OF THE RETAIL SHOWROOM ON ITS OWN IS AROUND $25,000 & I AM BASICALLY THROWING EVERYTHING ELSE INTO THIS AUCTION FOR NO EXTRA COST!!! I WOULD THEREFORE ASK ALL PEOPLE WHO ARE SERIOUSLY INTERESTED IN OWNING THIS UNIQUE PROPERTY TO EITHER CONTACT MYSELF OR THE REALTOR - VICKI CONN AT CENTURY 21 IN CONCORDIA, KANSAS - TO DISCUSS THE LISTING FURTHER AS WE MAY END UP ADDING A BUY IT NOW FOR THE RIGHT OFFER OR SPLITTING THE PROPERTY UP. OUR CONTACT DETAILS ARE IN THE QUESTIONS BELOW. 

2ND UPDATE 3RD MAY - I JUST PAID THE HALF YEARLY TAXES TODAY SO EVERYTHING IS IN ORDER. TAXES WERE JUST OVER $500 FOR THE HALF YEAR.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


On May-19-12 at 11:07:46 PDT, seller added the following information:

FINAL UPDATE - 6 HOURS TO GO!!!

thanks for all of your interest and emails. Right now there are 370 people watching the auction and I have answered A LOT of calls & emails over the last 4 weeks.

The final update is that a gentleman drove out to the property recently and he loved it so I made him an excellent offer on everything but as he could only afford it if I partly financed it we could not make a deal.

Since then I have had several other people advise me that they will purchase this property if I will offer owner financing but as owner financing is not something that I am interested in doing the auction is going to run to the end & will sell to the highest bidder. SO from what I understand there are several parties who are going to bid at the last minute and if it sells for close to the starting bid of $25,000 then I am positive that is going to be a STEAL for somebody. A few years ago this property would easily have sold for double, maybe even triple the opening bid, but that's the way the property market is right now & I will sell to the highest bidder.

Again to confirm, the local Century 21 realtor will handle the closing so there will be 30 days to complete the sale and a small deposit will be required within 7 days. I will pay any commission due to the realtor. The legal costs (usually around $600 for a Kansas property trade) will be split 50:50 between myself and the new owner.
