Detroit home comparisons: Which University District house would you choose?

We’re seeing some great single-family homes listing in the University District this summer. They’re all unique in their own way, and each of these is move-in ready. Some have a little more land and a little more character than the others. Which one would you choose?

18995 Birchcrest

This 4,000-square-foot renovated home is located on the north end of the neighborhood, near Seven Mile. The unique house has a copper roof covering a bay window out front, refinished hardwood floors, five bedrooms, three and a half baths, and a rec room in the basement. It’s now listed for $320,000.

18902 Oak Drive

We just featured this house last week, and it has since dropped in price. This gorgeous house has five bedrooms, a breezeway in between the garage and the house, and a big backyard on a double corner lot. It’s changed hands quite a few times in the past few years. Will it find a new owner for $399,900?

18085 Parkside

We saw this historic home earlier this spring when it listed for $399,000. Former Detroit mayor Jerome Cavanagh lived in this house while he was in office from 1962-1970. The house has five bedrooms (two master suites), original details, and a rec room in the basement. It’s now listing for $389,000.

18066 Warrington

Maybe you don’t need as much room as the first two homes. This 2,800-square-foot colonial has recently been flipped, so it’s move-in ready. It has four bedrooms, a backyard, and two fireplaces. It’s listing for $288,500.
