From the article:
For anyone who couldn’t seal the deal for Arcade Fire’s church, the Michigan Land Bank has a property that should make ravenous music fans consider breaking open their piggy banks: Eminem’s childhood home in Detroit, the one featured on the cover of 2000′s The Marshall Mathers LP, has hit the auction block. The downside? You have to live in Detroit.
As The Detroit News points out, the vacant single-family home at 19946 Dresden in the Greensbriar neighborhood, just south of the Eight Mile Road, was put for sale earlier this week. The 747-square-foot brick house was built in 1945 and includes one and a half baths and a detached garage. Acording to the Detroit Free Press, the “metal porch roof and downspout are missing; the fake stone facade is stained.” Sounds like a quaint weekend project to us.
While the Land Back’s auction doesn’t list the home’s current value, the auction begins at $1. The real estate website Zillow.com has the bungalow worth $32,675. The home previously sold in December 2007 for $24,650, despite having an estimated value of $44,400. Even still, the modest estimations didn’t stop one former resident, who once listed the home on eBay for a staggering $500,000 (no bids were received).
“In a case like this, if the property is blighted, or the whole neighborhood is blighted, it would be unusual to get a buyer,” Michigan Land Bank Executive Director Kim Homan told USA Today. “Nobody knew it was Eminem’s home, either.”
