More Detroit homes to hit the auction block

Tuesday's new phase includes the Boston-Edison Historic District, Osborn community


DETROIT – Another round of vacant, Detroit homes are slated to hit the auction block on Tuesday.

 This new phase will encompass the sophisticated, Boston-Edison Historic District. Homes in the Osborn community will also be up for grabs.

As you may recall, the eBay-style auction aims to put empty homes, in dire need of repair, into the hands of those with the means, and desire, to fix them.

Due to serious bidder demand, during this next run, the city is going to sell more homes each week. The Detroit Land Bank will auction two homes per day, seven days a week.
