Detroit man buys home for $1,000: Would you be willing to relocate to a dangerous area if housing was cheaper?

  • Opportunity Is Always Knocking Somewhere

    A dangerous neighborhood is a relative description. If you had at least some ability to repair and rebuild, you make a go of it in a dangerous neighbourhood. Perhaps if you have the opportunity to redevelop, and others have the same thought, you could make a go of it in a place like Detroit or Buffalo or Cleveland!

  • At that price, I would consider it.

    The housing market has ballooned to such high prices that at the astronomically low price of $1,000, you would have more than enough money in the budget to dedicate to renovation and possibly sell it later for a much higher price if you don't feel comfortable with the neighborhood. Those prices have to be taken advantage of.

  • Yes I would be willing to relocate to a dangerous area if housing was cheaper.

    I recently read up on this article at home and I have to say I was surprised! This man landed on a very great deal even though he had to relocate to a dangerous area.. The way I see it is that when buying a house at that price you will arguably have enough money to set yourself up with a nice security/alarm system around your house in order to prevent break in or anything related to the dangerous area you're living in.

  • I would not re-locate to a dangerous area

    I would not re-locate to a dangerous area to save money. I was born in a dangerous area and I did my best in my 20s to get out of there. I love my family, but I had to move to a middle-class area a few years after college. I didn't feel safe or comfortable, and I wouldn't feel safe today either.
