(Accidentally) On the Auction Block

Regular Curbed readers need no introduction to Whydontweownthis, the site that maps out the foreclosure auction. But until recently Michael Lee, the owner of the metal finishing business knew nothing of it, or that the city had listed his property for sale in the auction. "I knew I owed some taxes but I didn't know this," Lee said. Now he's working with the county to try to get his taxes cleared up and the property off the auction rolls. "I hate to think what could have happened," Lee said. Well that certainly is bad news for anyone that has not checked their records recently. Might want to run your address through whydontweownthis and see if you are about to get the boot. [The Detroit News]
