Is Islandview the neighborhood to watch this year? We’ve seen some interesting listings so far, starting with this great on the outside, disappointing on the inside Arts & Crafts bungalow. It sits on the corner of East Grand Boulevard and Kercheval, just down the street from Belle Isle and close to the development in West Village. The pictures are lovely but the place is a mess.
It listed in early February for $125,000 and just sold for its asking price. The listing agent Gordon Hawkins tells us that they still get calls about it and people just loved the house. The new owners plan on living there and restoring it.
It’s really a cute house, but definitely looks like it’s seen better days. This area will be interesting to watch, with this big single-family home listing last week, this multi-family fixer upper available, and this total rehab that everyone thought was overpriced and is now pending. Oh Detroit, your real estate is so strange.
