Detroit, The USA's Cheapest Houses

417 views 2 days ago
American Roadtrip http://www.overlander.tv

I interviewed Pinky Jones about MUFI, the Michigan Urban Farming Initiative. She had just bought a house in the same North End Detroit neighbourhood as the Urban Farm for $3,000. In this video she takes us for a short tour of the two story, 6 bedroom, 2 bathroom, 2 kitchen property. Pinky bought her house with her brother at a Detroit City Tax Auction. Detroit City has auctions of vacant homes as a result of tax lien foreclosures, in which homeowners failed to pay their property taxes and other municipal fees. Pinky and her brother are yet to get Utilities and Water connected in their new home. Pinky believes many in Detroit have trouble paying these bills and many go without heating, electricity and water, even through the harsh Michigan winter.

Many Beautiful historic homes are available in Detroit for very cheap prices. Many DIYers buy houses and surrounding vacant blocks to grow urban veggie gardens. Detroit is becoming quite a hub for young artists, attracted by the cheap rents and properties, and the unique post industrial landscape.

An Introduction to Overlander.tv's Travel Videos Play

An introduction to overlander.tv's travel videos curated by travel filmmaker Mark Shea. These videos represent my favourite locations and interviews from around the world.

Camino de Santiago Pilgrimage - The Way Film Play

The Camino de Santiago in Northern Spain is one of the world's most popular Pilgrimages.

Filmmaker Mark Shea wished to explore the spiritual affect the Camino (Way of St. James) has on pilgrims, by walking the French Way alone and documenting his own personal experiences.

The resulting film is an honest and joyous portrayal of the transformative nature of this ancient practice.

A must see for anyone who has walked the Camino, or anyone who has plans of partaking in this life changing experience in the future.

The film is 75 minutes in length and available in its entirety at http://www.overlander.tv/products-page/
