From a random Skype chat at work…
[2:40:54 PM] Christopher Currie says: $1 homes in detroit: http://www.detnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll/article?AID=/20080813/METRO/808130360/&imw=Y
[2:44:15 PM] Thomas Young says: I especially like the sentence: The company hired to manage the home and sell it, the Bearing Group, boarded up the home only to find the boards stolen and used to board up another abandoned home nearby.
[2:47:59 PM] Aditya Acharya says: you could play monopoly with real property in detroit for about the same price as buying one of those nice monopoly boards
I also like this line: “The agent did say that the buyer agreed to pay the full list price of $1, and planned to pay cash.”
