The U.S. Marshals Service has begun efforts to sell the last property owned by former Dixon, Ill., comptroller Rita Crundwell, who is in prison for stealing from the city.

The 2,300-square-foot home in Englewood, Fla., was placed on the market Monday for an asking price of $254,900.

The real estate agency handling the sale lists the home as “just minutes from the beach,” with a “luxurious” master bath, a separate hot tub and a guest suite.

Jason Wojdylo says the Marshals Service has received six unacceptable offers for the property.

Crundwell’s four Lee County properties sold for a total of $3,415,376 through an unsolicited bid process.

Crundwell was sentenced to nearly 20 years in prison for stealing more than $53 million from Dixon.

Florida property market is on top of the list among other places on US. This sunshine place is very lucrative for investors that often purchase homes and condos for long term worth. There’s lot of new constructions going on in the most beautiful oceanfront areas and beaches. You can see the underway projects of Albanese Builders , who are totally concentrating in satisfying the demand of prospective buyers. New homes are building with energy efficient techniques and have amenities such as pools, tennis courts and fitness centers that are fulfilling entire needs.
