Price now: $15,900
Price at last sale: $49,900 in 2008
Detroit's East English Village is a well-kept neighborhood of tree-lined streets just north of the affluent Grosse Point. In it, resides this Colonial-style, 1,500-square-foot home, which sold for $49,900 just four years ago. But now, realtor Chad Evans worries that they won't even get the $15,900 asking price for the place.
Home prices have been decimated here and this home also needs a new furnace and a new kitchen, he said. The last owner stripped it of appliances and other things of value several months ago, he said.
"I bet we get $9,900 for it," he said. "At that price, it's a great house, a perfect starter home." For more information: Trulia
