If geeks love it, we’re on it

Howdy, Stranger!

You found the friendliest gaming & tech geeks around. Say hello!

Anybody want to be my neighbor?

The rental house next door has gone into foreclosure. After enduring almost 5 years of annoying rental tenants (except for two couples, who were really cool, but we haven't had any good ones since '09), finally, the chance to have a stable and non-stupid neighbor appears.

So is anyone at Icrontic living in the Michigan area looking to buy a house near Detroit? This would make a nice little bachelor pad, it's nothing fancy but it's decent, and it's cheap, and you'd have awesome neighbors! :D

Seriously, if you know anyone looking for a house, I'd love to see this go even to someone who was a friend of a friend.

Or hey, one of you guys could buy it as an investment property and I could be the landlord! ;)

    I'm a nice guy, but dumb as two boxes o' rocks and a grumpy old man. Besides, I got no money ('cept what I have saved for GaryCon)

    If I didn't have a life on the West coast, I'd be IN.

    yea the $31 per sq foot is pretty insanely low. the house I used to own was only $54 per sq ft, and I thought that was cheap

    That's nothing, there's 2000 sq ft tudors in Detroit for less than $50k. They usually need a shitload of work, but they're insanely awesome looking houses.

    What taxes, the city taxes? They're not as bad as everyone makes them out to be, especially when the cost of living and mortgage payments are so low.

    Would make a sweet crashing pad for Icrontic events. :) Or just use it for an event house. Would be killer. Who has $20K? ;)

    It kills me that I could live in a place like that for much, much, much less than I pay for much, much, much less now. Fucking Toronto.

    Word is it was a nice B&B, so I'm assuming it's just Trulia not being used by the owner.

    For the record, ICHQ was $15/sqft according to Zillow, which does not include the attic or basement afaik. :wtf:

    Only "finished" areas count in sq. footage. Our basement doesn't count, but since our attic is finished it counts in the sq. footage. If you were to finish your basement and attic, you could count it.

    Your statement interests me as I applied for a couple of jobs out in Toronto (York University) and New Market (forgot with who, lol) today. I may be hitting you up about rent info and places soon if I hear anything positive from these jobs.

    @Whiskeyinyrshoes and I have decided that we're both going to get jobs in DTown, live in this castle, and then she'll be my date to Brian and Nicole's wedding. Yay!
