Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, where we look at different homes for sale around the city listed in a certain price range. This week, we’re hitting the road and seeing what’s for sale in some of Detroit’s suburbs. For the price of a historic home in Detroit, we might find a condo in Royal Oak. This week, we’re looking at homes within $15,000 of our budget: $350,000.

2304 Longfellow Street, Detroit

We saw this renovated Boston-Edison home back in November. It’s 2,710 square feet, with four bedrooms, three full and two half baths, a fireplace in the living room, a new kitchen, and a backyard. It sits west of the Lodge, a quick drive to downtown, Midtown, and many parts of the city. It’s now listed at $365,000.

100 W 5th Street Unit 610, Royal Oak

If Royal Oak is more your speed, this 1,200-square-foot loft is located right downtown. It has a weird industrial/’80s vibe, with exposed brick, curved walls, exposed duct work, and a balcony overlooking the city. Walk to all downtown Royal Oak clubs and restaurants from here. It’s listing for $359,900, with $417 a month in HOA fees.
