LANSING (WWJ/AP) - The state of Michigan is planning to auction nearly 700 tax-foreclosed properties in 12 counties this week.
The properties being auctioned have been foreclosed due to delinquent property taxes.
Officials say the parcels may be vacant residential or commercial lots, or may have occupied or abandoned structures on them.
Nearly 350 parcels in northern Michigan will be auctioned off on Tuesday, Aug. 13 at the Ramada Inn in Grayling. The parcels are in Dickinson, Iosco, Iron, Kalkaska, Keweenaw, Luce and Mecosta counties.
More than 330 mid-Michigan properties in Branch, Clinton, Eaton, Livingston and Shiawassee counties will go to auction on Wednesday, Aug. 14th at the Ramada Lansing Hotel & Conference Center.
Registration for interested bidders will begin at 9 a.m. each day, with auctions scheduled to begin at 10 a.m., and is open to anyone over the age of 18.
All interested buyers are encouraged to thoroughly research the property and its location before committing to any bids. The full purchase price must be paid the day of the auction.
