Detroit Mom Offers to Trade Her House for a Car

AOL Real Estate Editors

A Detroit woman is offering what sounds like the deal of a lifetime. Trade her a car for her four-bedroom, 2,000-square-foot house. She advertised the deal on Craigslist because, she said, she is desperate for a car to drive her children around in. She bought this house at a tax foreclosure sale for $3,500 and says she doesn't have the money to fix it up -- although it looks pretty nice from the photos. She and her kids live elsewhere. Any takers?
