In an effort broaden the appeal of its fixer-upper property auctions, the Detroit Land Bank is offering a big ol' discount to city workers. City of Detroit employees and retirees—roughly 32,000 people—will soon be allowed to take 50% off the final purchase price of a land bank property. But it doesn't stop there. Immediate family members (parents, siblings and children) of eligible employees/retirees can snag the same discount. Are you suddenly seeing potential in that squalid bungalow near the oil refinery? Get bidding on BuildingDetroit.org.
