This house could be yours for a mere iPhone

Finding no buyers at the $5,000 asking price, the seller says he's willing to trade his Detroit house for an iPhone 6 (preferably a Plus) or a 32GB iPad.

If you're looking to buy a house in Detroit, this 3-bedroom, 1.5-bath house in the heart of Motor City can be yours for the price of a new iPhone. Or, for an actual new iPhone or iPad, according to a report from FOX 2 in Detroit.

The man selling the house has had no luck finding a buyer since the listing went live in June, even with a dirt-cheap asking price of $5,000. Now, desperate to offload this house to a willing buyer, he's willing to hand over the keys for just $3,000 -- or to anyone who can give him an iPhone 6 or iPhone 6 Plus (preferably the Plus) or a 32GB or higher iPad.

"It's a real listing," Larry J. Else, the realtor on the home told Detroit's FOX 2. "It sounds like he wants the premium version, but I'm sure that he's willing to negotiate."

Zillow values the property at just under $50,000, and the listing calls it an "investor special," so it's likely that the home needs a lot of work to be livable. The house is currently vacant and has been ransacked by thieves, according to the report, and the buyer would have to pay more than $6,000 in back property taxes.

Anyone out there with a bent iPhone 6 Plus? You could possibly trade your flawed piece of consumer technology for this flawed house that needs a lot of love.
