Its no secret things are tough right now in Detroit, a once proud manufacturing powerhouse, and property prices are now so low one homeowner is offering up his $50000 house in exchange for an iPhone 6.
The house admittedly isn't in great shape and has no front door and broken windows, and whoever buys the home will have to fork out the more than $6,000 of accrued back taxes on the property.
The listing calls the house an “investor special,” and it has reportedly been ransacked by thieves more than once.
Real estate broker Larry Else ays the owner is desperate to sell the house due to the area's tax auction season where "thousands" of houses near foreclosure will swamp the market.
He said of the seller “It sounds like he wants the premium version, but I’m sure that he’s willing to negotiate.”
The abandoned property hasn't been lived in since its Austrian owner bought the home back in 2010 with the purpose of renting it.
So far the house has had four offers with the owner saying he would also accept a 32GB iPad.
Meanwhile as we reported in September most iPhone queuers weren't Apple fans but were in fact resellers from China, who would reportedly fly in an out of Australia specifically to make profits off the devices.
