Sure, it needs a little work. The roof leaks and a few of those holes in the walls are actually places where windows should be. On the upside, however, this nifty little bungalow at 2573 Lemay in Detroit can be had for a song because the Wayne County Prosecutor’s Office, for reasons unexplained, came to control the property and is looking to unload it to the highest bidder. As of Monday, that would have been the person offering $4,000 (plus the $1,000 or so in back taxes and unpaid water bills). There are a few days left to make an offer. And if you miss out, don’t be discouraged. There are usually several properties up for auction at any given time.
