SURRY, Va. - The house that was the headquarters for Michael Vick'sdogfighting operation has again failed to sell at auction.
Auctioneer Tim Dudley said no qualified bidders showed up fortoday's auction of the five-bedroom house in Surry County.
The owner required bidders to bring a $20,000 cashier's check,but none of the seven people who showed up did so.
Developer Wilbur Ray Todd Jr. bought the house for $450,000shortly after Vick was indicted on federal dogfighting conspiracycharges. At an auction last December, Todd rejected a bid of$747,000, which is the assessed value of the property for taxpurposes but less than the $1 million Todd wanted. The house wasput on the market but remained unsold.
Vick, the suspended Atlanta Falcons quarterback, is serving a23-month sentence in the federal penitentiary in Leavenworth,Kan.
Dudley says Todd will work with potential buyers, but if thehouse doesn't sell, another auction may be scheduled in about threemonths. Todd, who wasn't presented for the auction, had set aminimum bid of $590,000.
