Cares of the past are behind
Nowhere to go but I'll find
Just where the trail will wind
Drifting along with the tumbling tumbleweeds.

10% off its early 2003 purchase price
The carnage at the low end of the market is truly remarkable. Today's featured property was purchased in early 2003 for $240,000, and now it is being offered in mid 2011 for $219,000.
The former owner was a typical Ponzi who put nothing down and milked the property for $84,000 before the ATM ran dry. His final loan was a $324,000 Option ARM with a 1.4% teaser rate.

There aren't too many no-money-down Ponzis that have survived to 2011. I suppose this guy should be commended for hanging on so long… not.
This property is available for sale via the MLS.

Proprietary IHB commentary and analysis
This property barely breaks even for an owner occupant compared to a comparable rental. The only “investor” that would be interested in this property is a kool aid intoxicated one who is betting on appreciation that isn't going to happen for a while.
