On the Auction Block

Legal loopholes allow homeowners to buy back their foreclosed homes at auction prices, thereby avoiding back taxes or the hassles of burning it to the ground. At last year's inaugural Wayne County online property sale, 200 people caught on out of 3,700 properties for sale. This year, 14,300 are on the auction block. [Crain's]
