DIXON - The U.S. Marshals Service held an open house Friday to try selling former Dixon Comptroller Rita Crundwell's home.
The U.S. Marshals Service wants to sell Crundwell's home at 1679 U.S. Highway 52. The U.S. Marshals Service has taken out all of Crundwell's belongings inside of her home.
"It's difficult to see how luxury can turn so bare so quickly," U.S. Marshal worker Belkis Sandoval said. "I believe that the house can sell itself. It's top of the line."
The U.S. Marshals Service has already sold Rita Crundwell's ranch and home on Dutch Road for about $3 million. The home on Highway 52 already has one interested family. The first unsolicited offering on the home was $350,000.
"It seems very low for the type of property that it is," Nelson, Illinois resident Dustin Brockman said. "I know property values are low, and they know that we're trying to sell it, so they can get it a little cheap."
The U.S. Marshals could sell the house for $350,000 if they do not have another offer, but they are hoping to get another family interested in buying the home. The U.S. Marshals will hold two more open houses. One is Saturday and one is next Friday at the home on Highway 52.
The U.S. Marshals will take bids on the home until January 25th. To make a bid, click here.
