Real estate broker: Detroit house for iPhone 6 Plus swap offer is for real

“If you want a new iPhone, but you’re unwilling to take out a mortgage to afford it, you’ll find a sympathetic ear in Larry Else,” Ryan Grenoble reports The Huffington PostThe real estate broker represents a Detroit homeowner who, after repeatedly dropping the price on a property he’s trying to sell, is now willing to trade it for an iPhone 6. Really.”

“‘It’s a real listing,’ Else told My Fox Detroit. ‘My client is overseas and he told me he would be willing to trade the property for an iPhone 6. It sounds to me like he wants the [iPhone 6 Plus] version, but I think he’s willing to negotiate,'” Grenoble reports. “The homeowner would also consider a 32 gigabyte iPad.”

“The broker told HuffPost his client lives in Austria and bought the house in 2010 for $41,000, likely believing it to be a smart investment as a rental property,” Grenoble reports. “Though it looked good on paper, the house was probably never in as good a shape as the owner was led to believe. ‘The seller was a victim himself,’ Else said.”

  1. During your quiet reflection on your investment blunder, while living in Austria, Just buy an iPad and give the house to some homeless people…plenty to choose from in Detroit. But, that wouldn’t get you on tv.

  2. This guy is so desperate he will even accept an Android! Really now. Android users may be cheap but they are not THAT cheap! Besides, what does Detroit even have to offer anyway. Until they get a mall that’s as half as good as the Mall of America, then no one should care.
