Unless you’ve been under a rock for the past several years, you know tax foreclosures are at an all-time high in Detroit. By law, the Wayne County Treasurer is charged with administering the auction in an effort to recoup some of the delinquent taxes. The Wayne County Treasurer transitioned to an on-line auction in an effort to alleviate the administrative burden caused by the increasing number of properties. While this new system seems tailor-made for out-of-state speculators, potential homeowners may be able to find a deal. For those resourceful Young Detroiters, the idea of scoring a house and living mortgage free before your parents is definitely attainable.
