Duggan announces Detroit mortgage program to boost ownership in city.

Duggan continues to kick ass and do great things for the normal people of the city, and this is going to directly affect the lives of people looking to buy and live in Detroit neighborhoods.  It was nearly impossible to get mortgages previously because homes weren't appraising anywhere near where they needed to, so the buyer would be denied their loan and the neighborhoods would stay empty and start to decay.  This is a huge step in the right direction to getting the city's population and tax revenue back up, which will spread to other areas of life in Detroit. ---Dave Christiansen
