Welcome to the tax foreclosure site! If you are interested in purchasing tax foreclosed homes or property in Michigan, this site is for you. In Michigan when a property is tax delinquent for multiple years it is foreclosed by the County Treasurer for back taxes. The Treasurer then will sell the property at a tax foreclosure auction to the highest bidder. Often, the starting bid prices are well below market value and some of the largest counties, such as Wayne, Oakland and Kent number thousands of properties combined.
This site endeavors to consolidate information from all of the Michigan County Treasurers and provide a single source of information regarding tax foreclosure auctions in Michigan. To find the county information you are interested in, click on the County page above or use the drop down box on the side. You will find links and details per county. There are several entities including the State of Michigan that provide tax foreclosure auctions on behalf of the County Treasurer. In other counties, the Treasurer will conduct their own local sale at the County Building. The tax foreclosure process is a local decision and how the auctions are handled is unique to each county.
Tax foreclosure auctions are exciting and there are some great values to be had at the auctions. Like all real estate transactions, you must do your research prior to purchasing tax foreclosed properties. View our Frequently Asked Questions for answers to some of the most common questions.
