not too long ago I read an article about "free" housing in Detroit. Very interesting. You may want to Google it to see more details. Some of the houses they will have to GIVE me a lots of money to buy it at $1 :)

Lateefah,
I can't say "no" but I strongly suspect a house that is ridiculously cheap will cost a lot to make habitable and may carry with it unknown liens which the buyer may become responsible for. Be very cautious when looking at deals which seem too good to be true.
