Detroit house is yours for $1

August 14, 2008

The After…err…Rebirth of Detroit continues. For more than my Speedway coffee this morning, I could own this house. Well, this shell I should say. Everything of worth has been stripped out. Oh, also, I’d have to pay almost $4,000 in back taxes. Houses around the fine metropolitan area of Detroit can be bought for a few hundred dollars.

“My 14-year-old son could buy a block of Detroit property,” said Ann Laciura, senior servicing specialist for the Bearing Group.

With a mayor that’s going to trial for both felony perjury and assault on a police officer AND competitive real estate prices, who wouldn’t want to live in Detroit?
