Last week's post wasn't one of my most popular. Not exactly record-breaking page views and my property choices prompted the description "butt ugly!" from US Wreck reader Charles.
He offered to find me some prettier - and cheaper - 'wrecks' from Detroit, his birth city.Detroit has been hammered of late and property prices have taken a particularly vicious kicking with homes failing to sell even at $1.
Charles (who runs Helmar brewing and collectables business) found me some fine examples and I had a bit of a trawl too.
Yes, that's right - $50. Details here.
Leaping upwards to a whopping $850 is the three-bed below - one of dozens of fire-damaged foreclosure homes I looked at. More details here.
Details and more pix here.
Finally - Charles picked the mansion, pictured at the very top of this post and also below, to show us the type of "high-end" property Detroit offers.
The pictures on the website are pretty poor, but the house is extraordinary: seven bedrooms, four bathrooms - a French Regency-style mansion surrounded by gorgeous gardens. Plus marble fireplaces and a chandelier that was gift from Mrs Ford. It's on the market at $499,999 - just under £308k in the Queen's money.
The house, in upmarket Indian Village, embodies Detroit's better days.
Extra bit: After I posted this piece, Wreck reader Mick sent me a link to a story in the The Detroit News - 'Bidding discouraged on derelict homes at Wayne County auctions'. The County sells off hundreds of derelict homes in an annual auction, but this year is trying to stop speculators who buy up houses and do nothing with them.
