Potential buyers, and those that are simply curious, had a chance to look around the home of former Cicero president Betty Loren Maltese before it is sold at auction.

The government seized the property after Loren Maltese was convicted on corruption charges.

The single-story house has three bedrooms and one-and-a-half baths. It will be sold on Thursday. Loren Maltese has offered to have lunch with the new owners to give them the history of the property.
