DETROIT (CBS Detroit) – Some people are willing to give up just about anything to get their hands on a new iPhone 6 —  including their home.

A real estate listing says a homeowner is offering to swap a two-story brick colonial on Detroit’s east side for a new iPhone 6 or a 32gb iPad.

The 2,400 sq. ft. house at 11954 Laing, is located in a neighborhood near Kelly Road and Morang Avenue. The home is described as an “investor special,” with three bedrooms, one-and-a-half baths, a finished basement and two-car garage. A ceiling fan is among the home’s other listed features.

But a photo included in the listing shows another side of the house, one perhaps inviting to thieves, with a missing door, broken shutters and shattered windows.

The homeowner was originally seeking $5,000 for the house — but after several months on the market without any takers, trading for an iPhone might not be such a bad deal. The asking price was reduced by $1,000 in July and again in August.

County records show that the homeowner owes more than $6,000 in property taxes, according to the Motor City Muckraker.

Calls to the real estate agent weren’t immediately returned.
