About Jay Buys Detroit

At Jay Buys Detroit, our ultimate goal is to rebuild Detroit’s inner cities through residential (and commercial) development and to help its residents survive the financial stress of the economic downturn. Downtown Detroit is in the process of being revitalized, however, our neighborhoods and their residents are often forgotten. Jay Buys Detroit recognizes and understands the struggles that homeowners are facing. Property taxes and bills are plaguing our communities. The very home you own is becoming your biggest liability, draining you from your hard-earned money. A lot of times it is just best to cut your losses and walk away from your troubles. At JBD we understand that times can get hard and we are here to offer you a cash solution to your problem. We can help you regain your financial freedom and provide a fresh start.

Jay Buys Detroit’s core values are: Growth, Leadership, Community Development, and Economic Development. Through our values, we aspire to be a part of history and have significant influence in improving Detroit communities, by saving properties from going abandoned and becoming neighborhood hazards. We will be leaders in giving minorities in impoverished communities hope and inspiration for a better and brighter tomorrow. We will serve as a powerhouse of knowledge and skills within the real estate community, to millennial and minorities across the city of Detroit, the state of Michigan and the country. We plan to develop affordable residential and commercial property throughout the city, transforming our community to the change we want to see.
