Corktown is undeniably one of Detroit's hottest real estate markets. This 1,322-square-foot cottage just sold for $169K—just $20K below its original ask. Located in Detroit's oldest surviving neighborhood, the home dates back to 1881. For the most part, however, the structure is actually far younger—roughly 85% of the house was rebuilt in 2004 after a major fire. The lucky owner now gets to spend winter within the cottage's cozy, well-insulated confines.
