It’s insane that this house for auction has a starting bid of $1,000. That’s pretty close to less than one months rent, depending where you live. Granted, this is a tough section of Liberty on the north end, not to be confused with the south end near Washington’s HQ. The house needs a gut renovation and neighboring homes are of equal condition, but if no one else bids, you could have a home for $1,000. That’s a story to tell. The auction will be held October 31, 2014 and there will be an open house this Saturday and Sunday.
