Seriously. I have a friend looking to give away two houses in Detroit. Yes, I said give away.
They are currently occupied by tenants (who don't pay a heck of a lot). He is just tired of taking care of them, and they cost $3000/year in taxes and insurance. They are on Dacosta in Brightmoor. They are in OK shape. Not the Taj Mahal, but have everything working and in decent condition.
What do you do with a house that no one wants to keep anymore, but can't sell? He wonders if you can donate them to a non-profit and get a tax write-off. Any ideas? He doesn't want to walk away, evict the tenants, and let the scavengers come.
