*The recession along with predatory lending has forced a lot of people out of their homes.
But, it’s such an epidemic across the country that the ex-homeowners become squatters in their own homes just to have someone where to live.
But, others have joined in on the squatting that have absolutely no affiliation with the homes.
Detroit’s problem with squatters is intensifying as more and more homeowners lose their homes…or go out of town for a while.
One woman on the westside of Detroit complained to Fox Detroit that her house was full of squatters when she came back to her home after being out of town for a few months.
It turns out that a couple of the people in her home were her own neighbors.
