Smells Like a Deal

Southwest Detroit residents tired of the stench from the Marathon Oil refinery might be excited to know a buy-out is on the way as the company expands. Oakwood Heights residents will be offered a base price of $40,000 or the average price of two appraisals, whichever is greater along with allowances for real estate advice, miscellaneous expenses and mortgage assistance. But don't pack your bags yet! Relocation won't be easy and will take time. Marathon says homeowners can sign up through February of 2012, and the company expects to end the buy-outs program by the end of 2013. [MLive]
