DETROIT (AP) - The Detroit Land Bank will host an open house and homebuyers’ fair as part of its online auction of 15 homes in two city neighborhoods.

The event is scheduled from 1-5 p.m. Saturday at Marygrove College’s Madame Cadillac Hall.

It will feature workshops on home renovations and rehabilitation. Representatives from Talmer and Fifth Third banks will attend to discuss special mortgage and rehabilitation loan programs.

Buses will shuttle attendees between the houses up for auction.

The city says the homes in the Marygrove and Bagley neighborhoods are being auctioned through the Land Bank Authority’s nuisance abatement program. The auction is part of Detroit’s efforts to eradicate blight and stabilize neighborhoods.
