Dog Day Real Estate Market: Michael Vick Dogfighting House on the Auction Block … Fails to Sell Again


The Michael Vick dog fighting house is back on the market and will be auctioned off again this Friday at 4:00 pm. Maybe this time the realty group will accept the offer for the 5 bedroom Surry County home instead of being greedy and taking a proverbial bath as the real estate market in the US has gone to the dogs.


Motley’s Auction and Realty Group is handling the sale of the five-bedroom house in Surry County. The company’s Web site says the bidding Friday will start at $590,000.

Developer Wilbur Ray Todd Jr. bought the house from Vick for $450,000.

Vick Dog Fighting Home on Auction Block Today

The Surry County property once owned by suspended NFL quarterback Michael Vick, returns to the auction block this afternoon. Scott Hicks of Motley’s Auction & Realty Group said the house will go to the highest bidder above $590,000 at 4 p.m. Friday.

The current owner tried to sell the property at auction last December, but said he failed to receive a suitable offer.

The home was at the center of the dogfighting case that led to Vick’s guilty plea in federal court last year, and subsequent guilty plea to state charges last month. WAVY News 10 broke the story in early 2007 when investigators removed several dogs and dogfighting equipment from areas behind the home.

      Go figure that there is no market for this property, only people who want to see it and take pics for the freek show that it is.

      They may want to just put it on Ebay for a max bid of $10.00.

      What is the big deal? Is it unlivable? Haunted? Just because of some past notoriety nobody is willing to live there? I doubt you will see any paparazzi once things cool down and it looks like a nice house.

      I am curious what the result of the auction was.
