Tax-Foreclosed Properties Going Up For Bid

LANSING (WWJ/AP) – More than 700 properties in 12 Michigan counties will be auctioned off during state-sanctioned auctions on Aug. 14 and 15.

Registration for interested bidders will begin at 9 a.m. each day with auctions scheduled to begin at 10 a.m.

On Aug. 14, nearly 400 parcels in Dickinson, Iosco, Iron, Kalkaska, Keweenaw, Luce and Mecosta counties will be auctioned at a hotel in Grayling. And more than 360 properties in Branch, Clinton, Eaton, Livingston and Shiawassee counties will go to auction at a Lansing hotel the next day.

Properties being auctioned have been foreclosed upon due to delinquent property taxes. Parcels may be vacant residential or commercial lots or may have occupied or abandoned structures on them.
