Sold home updates from Sherwood Forest, Corktown, Lafayette Park, and more

Today we’re catching up with a few sold homes that have caught our eye over the past month. The first didn’t last long on the market, while a Mies van der Rohe co-op finally found a buyer after listing, delisting, and listing again. Is there a house you’re keeping an eye on? Let us know in the comments or send us a note on the tip line.


This seven-bedroom Sherwood Forest home is a knockout, even if it has room for updating. It’s loaded with character—from the checkered floors in the basement to the wood paneled den to leaded windows. It comes in at just under 5,000 square feet and it listed in mid-Septemeber for $399,900. Readers didn’t think it would last long and they were right; it recently sold for its asking price.

This funky Grinnell loft in Corktown boasted a rooftop deck with crazy good views of Detroit. The two-bedroom loft listed for a whopping $499,000, or $482 per square foot. Readers didn’t warm up to it too much, but the sellers were able to snag a good price: $499,000 (that’s $485 per square foot).


We’ve seen some pricey listings and sales at the Book Cadillac this year. A penthouse snagged nearly $1.8 million this spring. Another condo has just sold; this one is a two bedroom, two bath condo that came in at $645,000 after listing for $675,000 in August.


This Mies van der Rohe courtyard unit listed in 2015, went off the market, and listed again this spring for $499,900. Even though the courtyard units are rarely listed, readers weren’t sure that this one would go for nearly half a million dollars. It just sold for $447,500.


This University District house was once home to Detroit mayor Jerome Cavanagh. The five bedroom house still has many original details and had the potential for new updates. Readers thought the price was aggressive at $399,000. It listed in the spring and just sold for $380,000.
