Startup CEO says neighbors, not just millionaires, can invest in Detroit too

Cooperative Capital wants to help neighbors invest in Detroit.

Out-of-state investors own many of the vacant homes in Detroit. Those homes sometimes sit empty until they are stripped by scrappers or burned down by arsonists.

But a new start-up called Cooperative Capitalis suggesting neighbors buy vacant houses, and it will help them do it.
