Albany -- A family selling close to 20 properties throughout Albany says new buyers may bring a fresh approach to downtown.

The Beauchamp family is selling 19 properties through an auction on June 20th at the Hilton Garden Inn.

Property Manager Lane Rosen says the changes in ownership could mean a good change of pace for downtown.

"The family is from this area and is going to stay in this area, and we want success for the whole of downtown in general."

The current owners have been quoted as saying the city is poorly run and that's why they want to unload the properties, but Rosen says it's time for a change, and that multiple owners of different properties may be a good idea.
