Sitting in the shadow of MotorCity Casino, this poor Victorian has ridden a depressing roller coaster of hope and abandonment. Here's what we're told: Restoration work began in 2004 after the house was purchased for $88K. Realtors tell us that conversion was mostly completed, though sometime after that the owners ran out of cash or willpower. It's since endured a couple interesting appearances in the tax auction, though the original owners have managed retain ownership. Scrappers and squatters have more than undone any improvements made all those years ago, so you're looking at a $22K project house devoid of plumbing and electric, certainly full of critters and problems.
