All houses and buildings started with a $500 bid. There were bargains, surprises and duds.
Whoever buys the lawless wasteland will incur hefty costs for a property that is constantly on fire and crumbling.
Some of the properties are abandoned and gutted, while others could fetch more than $85,000 in any other community.
From stately tudors to roomy colonials, this year’s Wayne County auction has plenty of bargains.
Up for bid: Beautiful colonial homes, abandoned factories, gas stations, churches, a hospital, countless boarded-up bungalows and ornate apartment buildings.
