For many of us, abandoned houses have a mysterious and haunting beauty. Their weathered clapboards, broken shutters and peeling paint seem to beckon us to peer through their windows. I wish I could wave a magic wand and make these abandoned places shine again. Here are a few that are currently on the market for under $50K.
