Which Southwest Detroit home would you choose?

Single family? Income property?

A look around the Detroit real estate listings these days shows quite a few homes for sale in Southwest Detroit. This covers quite a large, diverse area and includes many single family homes and some income properties. Here are a few we noticed for sale, at very different price points. If you were buying in the area, which one would you choose?

Our first is on Stair Street, off Vernor Highway and closer to Springwells. The house is 1,219 square feet with four bedrooms, one and a half baths, and a finished basement. The listing says it’s been recently remodeled, but provides no interior pictures! It’s listing for $60,000.

Next up is a new listing on Bagley near Vernor Highway, West Grand Boulevard, and I-75. Built in 1904 and recently renovated, this house has four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a few original details left. It’s 2,266 square feet and listing for $180,000.


This cute house on Rathbone near Patton Rec Center and lots of parks is 1,430 square feet with three bedrooms, one and a half baths, and a decent-sized backyard. It’s listing for $59,900.


Or maybe you’re looking for a big income property. There are three duplexes on Western St, on four parcels of land, for $218,000. They all look to be in pretty good condition, and the houses have nice front porches on them. They’re located just off of Michigan Ave. [Photos by Jim Tumey, The Loft Warehouse]
