Who says you can't get anything for a buck these days?
And we're not talking about McDonald's Dollar Menu. Forget the flimsy cheeseburger. In St. Paul, Minn., a buck that will get you a house.
Believe it or not, though, in this brutal real estate market, even a dollar is proving to be a tough sell.
With 2,000 vacant houses in St. Paul, city officials are getting creative with ways to revitalize neighborhoods hammered by foreclosures. The city recently purchased 11 houses in Dayton Bluffs, one of St. Paul's most historic neighborhoods. The plan is to sell the properties, lie the one picture here, at big discounts in hopes of attracting people who want to make Dayton Bluffs a place to call home.
