DETROIT (AP) — A neighborhood group is hosting a tour of a dozen vacant houses up for auction on Detroit's east side.
The tour by the East English Village Neighborhood Association will be held from 1-5 p.m. Sunday.
Details of the 12 homes there and three other houses elsewhere in the city are listed on the Detroit Land Bank website. The city wants to sell the houses to people willing to quickly fix them up.
One house per day will be auctioned off beginning May 5. It's part of the city's effort to eradicate blight while stabilizing neighborhoods.
Mayor Mike Duggan also has said that Detroit will post legal notices on empty houses and take court action if needed against owners of blighted properties in one northwest side neighborhood.
