properties in Flint, Michigan – the Genesee County Treasurer’s public auction and the Genesee County
Land Bank Authority. It does so by analyzing four indicators related to tax-foreclosed residential
properties: change in structure condition, demolition rates, occupancy status, and repeat tax-foreclosure
rates. In addition, the report analyzes the revenue generated from property sales through each
conveyance system.
