Detroit Woman to Raffle Off Her Home For $100 a Ticket

People in all corners of the globe have gone to all sorts of extreme measures to get their houses sold, but rarely do they settle on handing over the keys practically for free. Here's a Detroit woman doing just that: she really wants to move to Germany to reunite with her husband, who was deported a few years ago, and is therefore selling $100 raffle tickets to prospective buyers and will soon draw one to own her home. The thing is, she needs 300 people (or $30K) to opt in so she can pay the back taxes she owes, purchase plane tickets, and "have a little to start over again in Germany." Curbed Detroit has more on this bizarre, bizarre story.
