The childhood home of Eminem is up for auction with a minimum $1 bid 12 years since it was foreclosed for non-payment of taxes.
Eminem's childhood home is up for auction with a $1 minimum bid.
The 'Not Afraid' rapper grew up in the bungalow - which was used as the cover art for his third album 'The Marshall Mathers LP' - in east Detroit, and it is one of more than twelve properties left abandoned in the area.
According to Detroit Free Press the home - now owned by the Michigan Land Bank - was bought by the 40-year-old star's mother Deborah Mathers in 1987 for $19,900 when she agreed to pay the owners $3,000 down and $220 a month.
The deed was passed to Eminem seven years later, and he immediately signed it over to Ann Investment - it since change hands before it was foreclosed for non-payment of taxes in 2001.
Local property owner Rhonda Brown has expressed her wish for the musician to help restore the home to its former glory.
She said: ''It's sad to see things like this, especially when you made it successful.
''My little coins, I put together and try to give back. Why (can't) millionaires ... do that? One or two of us is not going to work.
''We need a load full of people who still have passion, still have love for Detroit.''
