For $500, you could buy a house in Detroit. Or so how the story goes. Today our guest is Drew Philp, author, writer and house rehabber who joined us for a great conversation at Queens bar in Downtown Detroit about his new book, released by Scribner, A $500 House in Detroit: Rebuilding an Abandoned Home.

Philp inked the book deal after his viral Buzzfeed hit about his $500 house journey. Spoiler: It cost a lot more money and time than $500. But along the way, he learned just how amazing of a community Detroit can be.
