How many abandoned houses are there in Detroit?
At least 70000
Unfortunately, Detroit is well known these days for its urban blight. Believe it or not, it has approximately 70,000 abandoned buildings, 31,000 empty houses, and 90,000 vacant lots. More and more people name Detroit the â€œghost townâ€. Believe it or not, the average price of homes sold in Detroit in 2012 was $7,500. Moreover, on January 2013, 47 houses in Detroit were listed for $500 or less. Needless to say, five properties were listed for $1. This is definitely something.
