Zombie real estate

Yesterday, two items popped up on my YouTube feed that serendipitously shared the unlikely connection between zombies and real estate.  First, CNN reported that 'The Walking Dead' town up for sale.

Several buildings in Grantville, Georgia, used for filming AMC's "The Walking Dead," have been put up for sale on eBay.
That's one case of art crossing into life in a good way.  On the other hand, ABC News shows how the zombie metaphor can become a case of life imitating art in 'Zombie' Homes, When Good Houses Go Bad.

Houses left in foreclosure limbo begin to deteriorate, dragging neighboring property values down with them.
Welcome to failures of public and private policies making collapse worse instead of cushioning the blow.  About the best I can say is that Florida was the setting and Detroit was nowhere to be seen.
