Here’s what $85K can buy you in Detroit right now

This week, we’re comparing homes in Grandmont, Rosedale Park, Lafayette Park, and Jefferson Chalmers all priced between $75-85,000. All of them seem in pretty decent shape, with some work that could be done. Which would you choose?

16773 Edinborough Road

This nearly 1,500-square-foot home definitely has curb appeal. It also had a great deck and a small backyard. It has three bedrooms, one bath, refinished hardwood floors, and the listing says that almost all the work has been done in renovating. This Rosedale Park house is listed for $84,900.

14140 Artesian Street

This colorful brick colonial in the Grandmont #1 Subdivision looks very lived in and may require a lot of painting (unless you love bright colors). It’s just over 1,500 square feet, with three bedrooms, one and a half baths, and hardwood floors. It’s listing for $85,000.

274 Eastlawn

Is it character you’re looking for? We featured this Jefferson Chalmers house back in October, and it’s loaded with some serious pretty in pink character. With 1,453 square feet, it has three bedrooms, two and a half baths, and a very unique basement bar. It’s now listing for $79,900.

1300 E Lafayette #811

Maybe you’re not about that single-family house life. This eighth floor co-op in 1300 E. Lafayette is coming in at the lower end of our price range at $75,000. It has one bedroom, one bath, and again, some pretty bold paint choices. Factor in the HOA fee for this one — it’s $1,014 a month.
