Also check the Michigan Land Bank.

There are some houses, but mostly lots available in the COD. Also, delinquent tax season is rapidly approaching. Check the Wayne County Treasurer's site when thy begin to list properties that may become available for tax auction.

Hope this helps :-)

It's a great time to be a future land developer. Grab the vacant land while it's dirt cheap.

There is also the world of foreclosed home sales.

what makes you think he would be the first person to think of grabbing the land in the city? most prime sites are taken. and, the city is no longer primarily trying to dump properties for a buck. many areas are now required to have a plan on what you are going to do with the property before they sell it, or have a stipulation built into the sale that you must do something with it within a specified mount of time or ownership reverts. the city is now under the weight of 40 years worth of speculators buying up property.

The two-family house on Marquette that is shown on the county auction site could be a real gem.

I would think if the taxes and utilities are paid and there are no calls dealing with blight issues, the city would pretty happy with the sale.

City Sales are great, just remember that it takes a good year, at least, to get the title in your name.

The Wayne County Prosecutor's auction is a better way to go, at this point, the prices are usually great and the title process is fairly rapid.
McBreo is the firm that handles hud sales; there were 3 pages of Detroit Properties a couple years ago, now there are 11.

Interesting....the old 6th Precinct police station at McGraw and Braden is up at a $150,000 opening bid.
