DETROIT (AP) Anthony Brown keeps his home of 36 years in good shape, but it is an island of tranquility in a sea of blight in Detroit's Marygrove neighborhood. There is a vacant house next door, another across the street and still others farther down Wisconsin Street."It was beautiful around here," Brown, a 59 year old Ford Motor Co. worker, said about how things once looked. "Everybody was in the houses. Everybody kept their lawns up. Everybody was planting flowers."Now he and others in bankrupt Detroit see signs of hope in an aggressive home preservation plan that Mayor Mike Duggan is using to lure people back into city neighborhoods. It's no small task: A recent study recommended razing more than 38,000 houses. Another 35,000 are unoccupied, abandoned or government owned and at risk of becoming blighted.Instead of razing them all, the city is highlighting the ones that can be saved and selling them at auction to individuals and families who want to fix them and move in. That strategy, if successful, is expected to help eradicate blight and strengthen neighborhoods that are stable or on the edge.The Land Bank began auctioning off one home per day in early May. That has since been expanded to two per day and soon will grow to three.About 50 have been sold, so far, and 6,500 bidders have registered on the online auction site."We've sold $700,000 worth of houses," Duggan told The Associated Press last week. "We're going strong to weak. We're starting in the strongest neighborhoods in this city and going after every single abandoned house."If you've got four abandoned houses on a block and you demo one house, you haven't changed the quality of life for people on that block.

the website crashed near Nike Air Max Women Black Tumblr the end of the auction.About nine homes have been auctioned off in Latisha Johnson's East English Village neighborhood. She says they sold for an average of $30,000."We recognize how much work needs to go into it," Johnson said of rehabbing each of the homes. "I'd venture to say they would have to put $30,000 in work to put in to it."On Friday, the high bid for a 1,200 square foot brick bungalow in the eastside neighborhood was $14,100. The house has a fireplace, three bedrooms and a good roof, but the auction website notes that it's a fixer upper: Both bathrooms and the kitchen will need replacing, as will the doors, windows, plumbing and HVAC system.Talmer Bank has committed $1 million to a program in which homeowners get $25,000 forgivable loans when they buy homes at auction. The loans will be forgiven at the rate of $5,000 for each year the buyer lives in the house.Duggan's plan includes legally taking empty houses from owners who fail or refuse to keep them up. Some will be torn down and others will be sold. Detroit doesn't want to be a landlord, but the mayor said allowing houses and neighborhoods to rot is no longer an option."We sue on a nuisance theory that when you abandon your house it is a nuisance to your neighbors, and you have to either fix up the nuisance yourself or lose the house," Duggan said.Detroit has filed lawsuits against at least 125 people so far this spring.The program is modeled after one he created a decade ago during his time as Wayne County prosecutor. city is Nike 2016 Air Max Red

When you take the entire neighborhood at once and attack every single abandoned house, that's when people are willing to invest."The highest winning auction bid has been $135,000 for a 4 bedroom, 3 bath historic home in the Boston Edison area near the city's center.

Detroit fights blight by selling off vacant homes

doing what Detroit is doing.Notices are posted on the vacant houses, and there is a response and appeals period. Some owners choose consent judgments and vow to fix the houses up and move somebody in, but some don't.On June 6, a judge awarded the Land Bank eight vacant properties in the Marygrove neighborhood."I'm going to guess that of those eight, we're going to demolish two and auction six," Duggan said. "We're rolling across the city an entire neighborhood at a time and filing these lawsuits. Everybody knows they got a choice sign the court order and get it fixed up yourself or we'll auction it on the website. If we take title to it and we can't sell it, we'll demo it. If we got a couple of burned out houses we'll take title (and) demo the burned out houses."That's not just political rambling, said Brown, who has seen Duggan looking over vacant houses on Wisconsin Street.Like Duggan, Brown would rather they be saved."Who wants a vacant lot by their house?" Brown said. "Recycle. That's what Duggan is doing. He has a nice plan.
