    wow, whoever wrote this description is an idiot.
    Saginaw is nowhere near Detroit...

    But I live in a suburb outside Detroit, and that house would be just as at home in Detroit anyway...

    Hmm, I was thinking only $10. I was waaaay off.

    There is a lady in my hometown, we call her the bag lady, she has a Ph.D. in some field, not sure which, owns a house in WORSE condition than that house. She has been arrested several times for being filthy, or some sort of nonsensery as that. She`s worth a couple hundred thousand.
    Her house went for sale for $50. It was a nice house too, minus the garbage, the holes in the roof, the broken windows... etc.

    My guess was 99p (the lowest you can bid on eBay UK) so I wasn`t far off :)(according to XE.com, 0.99 GBP = 1.74715 USD at the time I osted)

    Makes me think of those house-flipping shows where the people think they`re going to make sooo much money. They buy the house for $50k, expecting to pay $10k in labor in repairs, and expect to sell the house for $200k. They end up spending about $100k because of all the hidden damage. Then, they refuse to sell the house for 190k.

    Actually, that lot reminds me of my Granny`s old house (senile, mean, old lady). The land was worth more when the house "mysteriously" burned down.

    i definately would not buy that, not even for half a penny. by the looks of it, its going to cost alot before the thing is deemed safe...or its going to cost to take it down, either way its a risk i wouldnt take.

    everything except used make-up.


    What I dont get. If your willing to spend 800 in back taxes... wouldn`t you be willing to go to 2 dollars?

    As another person said, Saginaw is nowhere near Detroit. Also, this isn`t a "sign of the times" there`s just a crapload of abandoned houses in Saginaw. At least it`s being sold and fixed up instead of burned down by arsonists (although I haven`t been up with the times, so maybe that`s not happening as much).

    So she`s flipping a house. And it happened to be through Ebay.

    Did I miss something there? What`s so special?

    Jezuz, you`ve posted that same exact comment, just a period, multiple times. It`s spam and doesn`t belong here. I`d appreciate it if you didn`t spam anymore.

    "Did I miss something there? What`s so special?"

    One dollar and twenty five cents. I mean, you could tear apart the house and sell the separate pieces for at least $200. But seriously, that`s like, "Do I want a pooty little burrito from taco bell, or do I want to buy an entire drating house and the property it`s on?"
    A homeless person could own a house! Then he wouldn`t be homeless anymore. D:

    No arson...there has to be people there...this section of Saginaw, south by m-13 is a ghost town, literally. I`ll bet it`s on a street with filled with empty houses that slumlords no longer want to pay to keep up because there`s no one to rent to, so they abandon them.

    Is this actually real?? 8 other bidders and no1 went higher than $1.75? Is that possible? The only person to really benifit from this is suprisingly the guy selling it. Instead of paying $800 in taxes, someone pays him to take it of his hands.

    Saginaw is about 70 miles from Detroit. You know, since you didn`t open up a map or anything.

    Even though that isn`t even remotely Detroit, that is what most of the houses look like there. Some neighborhoods are completely devastated. Block after block of vacant shabby houses and empty lots. In this city, children under 9 get shot just because they wereplaying outside, when some idiot gangbanger decided it was more important to show how big his balls are by shooting up someones house. Just recently, if you don`t believe me check the news, an INFANT was shot.
