BUFORD, Ga. (AP) -- Michael Vick's house is still available. No one made an offer on the luxury home in suburban Atlanta at an auction Tuesday. A minimum bid of $3.2 million was required, but only two parties showed up and neither brought the $160,000 payment that was needed just to start the auction.
Sterling Realty Services president Narender Reddy said there is no market for the eight-bedroom, 11-bath home at that price in light of the economy. The whole process lasted less than an hour. Now, a bankruptcy judge must decide the next step for Vick's house.
The former star quarterback for the Atlanta Falcons is serving a nearly two-year sentence after pleading guilty to running a dogfighting ring.
