An email from Data Driven Detroit yesterday introduced us to yet another way to window shop for cheap real estate in the area. In the further e-bay-ification of Detroit property sales, this tool pulls a few more facts buyers will be interested in (PSA: if you want to bid you have to register by tomorrow!) Take a look at 2700 W Warren St for example. The September minimum bid was $101,100. The next round of bidding starts October 21, at which time this could be yours for as little as $500. Is it worth it? Who knows! The foreclosure auction is such a toss up. Data is hard to find. DDD tracks the distance to nearest grocery store, bus stop, and park. Figuring out if anyone has stolen the boiler yet will be your own adventure.
