I have a problem and I need some feedback from people who know anything about this kind of stuff.
I won a house(yes) in Detroit on a pokergame, which had some respectable players. The pot was about 5000€ at the time I accepted the bet, which was a no brainer as I had the nuts. Well, I won and I am supposed to sign the papers in few hours.
But now I am having my doubts about this. Here is all I can tell you about the "big win".
The 3 bedroom house is build in 40's, which makes it quite old. Judging by the picture, it is not a total turd. It had a fresh paint and even the yard was taken care of.
Don't know the address, but it is supposed to be located very near downton. Zip code was something like 48200 or close to that.
I don't have USA nationality, but as far as I know that is not a problem for owning property there?
So... would I be stuck with some payments (land rent/upkeep/whatever) if I were to sign the papers or is there a chance that I could make money out of it? I've seen that the prices in Detroit are superlow, but any money is good.
Take it or not? :D
