How bad is the real estate market in Flint? You can now buy houses in bulk. The asking price for 23 houses on the Eastside is $450,000, but something tells me you could get all of them for a lot less. You never know when 23 houses might come in handy. If you don't need that many, there's always eBay. The house above had one bid for 99 cents as of Monday night.
