I am trying to find a website(s) that list houses that are FREE and you just have to move them. I haven't been able to come up with a query that would generate those results without having to go through thousands of non related links. Anyone else come up with it for me?

That's the general term used for programs that match people (sometimes low-income, sometimes anybody) with deteriorated or abandoned properties, with the requirement that they rehab it and live in it. The guiding principle is that sweat equity will result in the revival of the neighborhood.

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
