Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, where we look at different homes for sale around the city listed in a certain price range. For the price of a mansion in one neighborhood, we might find a condo in another. This week, we’re looking at homes within $10,000 of our budget: $135,000. Not crazy about these choices? If you have some extra money to fix up a place, you can always choose this lofty Islandview house or Diana Ross’s childhood home.

18213 Cherrylawn Street

First up is this newly remodeled three bedroom, one full and one half bath brick home in Bagley. The house has great curb appeal, a new kitchen, new bath fixtures, and some nice plaster work. It also has nice archways and hardwood floors, but feels a little cold in its new design. Maybe some warm colors of paint could help? It’s located right in between 6 and 7 Mile and it’s listed at the top end of our budget at $144,900.

8503 Marygrove Drive

This contemporary 1940 home is adjacent to Marygrove’s campus, just south of our first house. It has three bedrooms, one full and two half baths, a new kitchen, new paint, and a semi-finished basement. It’s a bit all over the place in its design. This house is listed for $129,900.

16722 Fielding Street

This three bedroom home has one of the strangest dining rooms we’ve seen. Seriously, can someone explain the mirrors? It’s recently flipped, and has a new kitchen, new bath fixtures, and a Florida room. It’s located right in between North Rosedale Park and Old Redford, so it’s close to plenty of businesses. It’s listing for $130,000.

120 Seward Street Unit 412

Maybe you want to live a little closer to downtown? We saw this New Center condo a few weeks ago. For $139,000, this two bedroom, one bath, 850-square-foot condo is located near the QLine and the Fisher Building.
