DetroitMichael at Does anybody else find it interesting that properties that just sold in the second round of the Wayne County auction are already listed on bid4assets from other sellers?:

Yeah, on ebay I believe. Heck, I bet there are houses listed on Craigslist. My disbelief is that bid4assets, who knows that deeds haven't likely been received yet, has allowed the listings.

DetroitMichael at How would you redesign the auction?:

Follow up to Frank Bach's question regarding last year's auction that I have asked before and have not received an answer to: How many of last year's sold properties already have delinquent tax bills?

I'm pretty sure Woodbridge does not enjoy the same historic protections as other historic neighborhoods in the city. I don't recall the specifics, but do remember there was a difference in the way Woodbridge was listed whether it was deemed historic by the state and not the feds or the other way around. Some of the old timers from the WCDC or from the remnants of the WNDC should be able to fill in the blanks.

Not saying it's too hard, just pointing out an issue with UST's. I've had experience with them, they aren't fun.

I'm all for that, but a commercial property such as this will surely require a PhaseI environmental study verifying the presence of UST's followed by a potential PhaseII soil sampling to check if they have leaked. These are serious concerns, meaning serious money.

3 blocks past Slows? Please, Slows was 3 blocks past the point of no return 6 years ago. That's not the true impediment, the UST's could be.
