Once again, we're looking into an appealing listing in America's Cheapest Zip Code (Detroit's 48208). But this one has some weirdness going on. The listing states, "MAKE OFFER BASED ON DRIVE BY, NO SHOWINGS UNTIL OFFER IS ACCEPTED. BOTH UNITS RENTED." Seriously? Who puts down an offer before taking a peek? Sure you could back out, but that seems a bit insane nonetheless. The asking price for this 3,000 square foot home with two units is $59,900 and they are promising a gross income of $1,350/month in rent. Apparently the interior is fine but it is the exterior that need some work; so best to get out of the car and inspect if you are interested, seller's instructions be damned! In any case, it's a 1890 brick house with lots of character, hardwood floors, and a fireplace making that cheapest zip code look ever more awesome.
