DETROIT, Mich. (WJBK) - This east side house in Detroit is definitely for sale. But after months and months on the market and a few price drops, the homeowner isn’t after your money. “It’s a real listing,” said realtor Larry Else. “My client is overseas and he told me he would be willing to tradethe properly for an iPhone 6.

“It sounds to me like he wants the (iPhone 6+) version, but I think he’s willing to negotiate.” The seller will even swap the house for a 32-gigabyte iPad.  The three-bedroom, one-and-a-half bathroom brick colonial is on Britain and Lainge and is a fixer-upper. But it has it’s “gems” as Zillow.com mentions, including a finished basement.   There is also a plush garden, and city views from the upper deck where a chair sits outside.  The bungalow was listed for $5,000 then dropped to $3,000, or the latest and greatest in Apple technology.  “It needsto be torn down,” said Ameir Walker.  Not everyone feels that way. “I work on houses, so I would love to have it for that,” said Jamal Kemp. “It doesn’t take a lot of moneyto fix these houses back up. I would (be willing to buy it).” There is one tiny little catch, the buyer will have to pay the back taxes $6,000 and counting, but like most things in life, that too is negotiable.

 

 

 

Well that is the most Detroit headline of all time. 3 bedroom 1.5 bathroom house for a 600 dollar phone. Deal of the century! Detroit is on the up and up.

 

I will say this though, this realtor is a marketing genius. That house sucks, it has had multiple price drops and no one wants to touch it. So what do you do? Say you’ll trade it for an iPhone, get the people talking, then throw in that little fine print about it actually costing an iPhone and over 6 grand in back taxes and bingo bango you just sold a house. Lipstick on a pig right there. Realtor 101.
