Taxes can be found on Zillow.com by entering the address under the search field. Looks like 8586/yr Homesteaded.

All home inspectors doing the same basic inspection for the houses
You can do additional inspections if you see something that concerns you
There are a lot of home inspectors who are licensed builders
Interview a few inspectors and you can figure out who is the right one to inspect
Your house. Some foreclosed properties in better condition then others
It depends what year the house was build and how well did the past owners
take care the property.

When a bank takes a property back through foreclosure the house loses it's homestead and the taxes increase. Once you own the house you can appeal the taxes but the local taxing authorities only give you a small window of opportunity, typically only a couple of weeks, once a year and for most that time has passed so you'll have to wait until next year to appeal. There are several good tax appeal companies and law firms that charge reasonable fees to work through the appeal process, I wouldn't advise trying to do this yourself, leave it to the experts. I've had clients cut their taxes in half after the appeal.

@ Derek,

I'm afraid your answer is incorrect. Any real estate professional with listings on Trulia has the ability to edit the listing information and photos. You don't need to have a subscription of any kind in order to manage listings.

Hi Roseann,

A very tough market in Detroit. I"m from there and somewhat familiar with the area. I think it is best to find an experienced local agent in the area to advise you and list the property.

Inteview the a few agents and don't be afraid to ask questions and especially for references.

Hi Sara,

From MortgageNewsDaily.com, here's their "quick ‘rule-of-thumb’ on who to contact: If you suspect you are a victim of mortgage fraud, contact the local FBI office; if you suspect or need to report predatory lending practices or other abusive-types of lending, contact your state Attorney General’s office; if you suspect or need to report mortgage scams by a real estate broker or appraiser, contact the state’s real estate licensing board or appraisal licensing board. The Better Business Bureau is also an excellent resource if you think you are a victim of fraud. These and many other sources of help are listed below."

And, here's a link to several resources regarding reporting frauds or all types in Michigan:
