Church Bought For $2,500, Lists For $79K

DETROIT, (UPI) –  The investor who purchased Detroit’s St. Stanislaus Catholic Church for $2,500 is now listing the property for sale with an asking price of $79,000.

Majid Shaukat of Rochester Hills, Mich., purchased the dual-towered church, located just east of downtown, Sept. 19, the Detroit Free Press reported Friday. .

Wayne County Register of Deeds records show the church was most recently occupied by the Promise Land Missionary Baptist Church, which lost the facility last year through foreclosure.

“It was auctioned and an investor bought it and contacted me and asked me to market the property,” said Kevin Messier of Real Estate Professional Services. “The reason it’s for $79,000 is that it’s being sold as-is.”

“The pews are gone. The chandeliers are gone,” Messier said. “My goal is to find another church to restore that building. That would be the best scenario.”

The Free Press said it was unable to reach Shaukat for comment.
