I'm looking at a home to buy.  In my area I can't get a manufactured home for under $300k.  So, I got creative and looked at Detroit.  I can buy a 4 bedroom nice house for $2500.  Holy crap.  Is it really THAT bad out there?????

Yes it is!  The jobs dried up.  I have friends there and they actually closed the hospital near them due to it not making money.

Yeah...those are probably land contracts, and they're extremely popular. Some of them are probably HUD houses too. They most likely need a LOT of work.

Detroit isn't the only place with land contracts and HUD houses.

You don't want the one on Outer Drive especially if it's near Electric Street. I'm not familiar with the exact area of the other 2. Also don't go near the East side. Ever.

I've never seen houses that cheap though, at least not in the places I've looked.

Quoting AdellesMom:
