The Residential Program makes single-family properties available to be renovated and occupied by the homeowner. Properties are sold as-is, on land contract. The owner has three years to renovate the property to minimum housing standards. After this condition is met, ownership is transferred.

This program is to return abandoned properties located throughout the City of Muncie to productive or beneficial use. Priorities for the disposition of these properties include neighborhood revitalization, homeownership, return to a productive tax paying status, conformity to the Delaware County comprehensive plan, and conformity to the five-year City of Muncie Community Development Block Grant/HOME Investment Partnership Program consolidated plan. Individual abandoned properties throughout the City of Muncie can be used for this program along with groups of geographically-linked abandoned properties.
