As of 2015, Wayne County, Michigan typically holds foreclosure auctions in September and October. If a property does not sell at the public auction in September, the county places it in the October auction, states the Wayne County website.
A property enters forfeiture when its taxes have been delinquent for one year. The property owner then has another year to pay the taxes before the property enters foreclosure. The redemption rights of a property expire on March 31, and it goes on sale at the foreclosure auctions the same year. The minimum bid of a foreclosed property includes the amount of delinquent taxes, interest and penalties, notes Wayne County.
