Woman Gets House For $1.75 on eBay

Top Bidder Has Never Seen House Or Town

With a winning bid of just $1.75, a Chicago woman is getting an abandoned home in Saginaw, Mich.

The Saginaw News reports that 30-year-old Joanne Smith recently was the top bidder for the home during an auction on eBay. Her bid was one of eight for the home, which she says she plans to sell.

Smith said she hasn't seen the property or visited Saginaw. The newspaper said she also must pay about $850 in back taxes and cleanup costs.
