What happened to the more than 6,000 properties that were involved in the 2017 Detroit Tax Foreclosure Auction? Detroit Action Commonwealth and Loveland teamed up to track these properties over time and understand more about how the auction process affects the city and its residents.
In 2017 more than 6,000 Detroit properties, including an estimated 2,725 occupied homes, were tax foreclosed and auctioned to the highest bidder by Wayne County. This report, prepared over the course of 2018 and 2019, looks back to see what has happened to these properties since then. Who bought them and where are they located? How many have gone vacant and how many became occupied? How many are headed back into tax foreclosure already? These and other questions are explored.
