DETROIT--(BUSINESS WIRE)--

In one of the largest sales of its kind, the Wayne County Treasurer announces the opening of its annual online tax-defaulted property auction website.

Interested parties must be registered to bid. Registration is open through September 13 at www.wayne.realforeclose.com. The auction will feature more than 20,000 residential and commercial properties and vacant lots.

“Funds collected from the auction will support mandated services including police and fire protection and schools for our children,” Treasurer Wojtowicz said. “The auction process is accessible to everyone who wants to participate. It is our hope Michigan residents will buy properties, refurbish dwellings to improve and stabilize neighborhoods and return properties to the tax rolls making a positive impact in the county, the region and the state.”
