We’re updating a few houses we’ve been keeping an eye on lately. We could see a few big sales in the coming months. In the meantime, here are a few houses people have been talking about. Are there any houses you’re watching? Let us know in the comments or send us a note on the tip line.
This house in East Village on Fischer listed in November for $79,999. Even though it’s located a block away from Indian Village, many thought it was still a bit too much to ask for a fixer upper in that location. The house, built in 1900, did all right, though. It just sold for $69,000.
Readers seemed to appreciate the renovation and price on this Philadelphia Street home, listed in October. It’s a solid renovation just north of a lot of the action in New Center and a block away from Woodward. We expect this area to pick up quite a bit in the next couple years. It listed for $124,900 and just sold for $134,000.
We also featured this Southwest Duplex in November. It’s located close to Honey Bee and Michigan Central Station. We appreciated the wrought iron fencing and the house looked to be in pretty good condition. It listed for $209,900 and just sold for $195,000.
We featured this University District renovation in a face off with a Sherwood Forest home, and this house won by quite a bit. It still had a lot of original detail, with new flooring and a covered patio. It listed for $325,000, which was quickly lowered to $299,000, and then sold for $288,000.
We don’t really showcase houses on Sand Bar Lane, or the Morgan Waterfront Estates too much, because how much can you say about a McMansion? We have noticed quite a few list lately, including a major one for $2,499,000 (the most expensive single family listing in Detroit now). Many others are now on the market and this 4,200+ square foot home listed for $484,500 and just sold for $461,000. Strong work with that picture out the car window.
