Last week, we discussed what a starter home might look like in Detroit. While the study suggested that you can buy one for $42,000 in Detroit, we were a little concerned about where a house like that could be or what condition it’s in. If you’re looking for something you don’t need to renovate, this house just a couple blocks away from Marygrove College might be for you. It’s listed for $75,900.
This house is located in the Fitzgerald neighborhood, which is one of the three neighborhoods Mayor Duggan identified as a potential 20-minute neighborhood (a neighborhood improvement project including renovating houses, turning vacant lots into garden space, increasing bike access, etc.). This 1928 house is 1,441 square feet, with three bedrooms, two and a half baths, a fireplace, built-ins, and a finished attic space. Just provide your own appliances.
