It was so reasonable!

"It was so reasonable!" was my grandmother's favorite phrase. She'd by anything, as long as it was "reasonable." It didn't matter if she wanted it, needed it, or was ever going to use it. For her, a bargain was a great thing.

Obviously, my grandmother is not alone:
In extreme cases, homes are on sale for $1 or less..., which has enticed investors to Detroit from as far away as the United Kingdom and Australia.

"They're coming to us, saying `Look, I want to buy 50, 100, 1,000.' They want to own every decent and cheap house they can find."

These people have obviously know nothing about Detroit. But at least they've got a bargain house in a ghost town!
