28 Detroit houses selling for $500 at county auction

585 E. Grand BlvdNearly 15,000 homes, businesses, churches and industrial buildings in Detroit are up for auction for a minimum $500 bid.

Some of the properties are abandoned and gutted, while others would fetch more than $85,000 in any other community.

The auction kicked off this week and ends between Oct. 21 and 25.
