Thousands of Wayne Co. properties on the auction block

Posted: Updated:
DETROIT (WJBK) -

Beginning this week, Wayne County officials will auction off thousands of tax-foreclosed properties.

A vast majority of the 20,000 properties are in Detroit.

While foreclosure numbers seems to be leveling off from last year, as many as 12,000 of the properties that will go up for sale are occupied. State law requires counties to foreclose after three years of unpaid property taxes.

Bidding on properties starts Saturday. Registration runs through September 13.
