For the Detroit city dweller that wants to be on the cusp of what the 'burbs has to offer, Regent Park is not a bad bet. If Target is your place, nearby Harper Woods has your covered while Grosse Pointe Woods, just a bit further, is doing its fancy thing. Most importantly, staying on the Detroit side keeps it cheap! Behold a $7,000 HUD home that could use a little love. It's got hard wood floors, a classy fireplace, three bedrooms and 1,284 square feet. Also an agent who is looking out for you. The listing says repairs are needed that will cost you more than $5,000 and that they may include electrical work, the roof, plumbing, and doing something about that "MOLD-LIKE SUBSTNCE" [sic]. Ok so that's a lot. But if you still get it up and running for $13 K, we still smell a deal. Zillow seems to think most of the block's homes are in the $20-30 K range, so get that flipping mold out and give it a go.
