Today in bizarre Detroit real estate news: a man is offering to swap out his house for an iPhone 6 (or, if you're a haggler, a new iPad). The house, which can't play candy crush or calculate a tip, has three bedrooms, a finished basement, and a two-car detached garage. It's been on the market for 123 days, so if you're picking up notes of desperation in this listing, well, that's because this "INVESTOR SPECIAL" is, in fact, the saddest news to come out of Detroit in a while. It should also be noted that, alternatively, you can buy the house for $3,000.
