Condo? Apartment? House? Which would you choose?

Welcome to this week’s installment of Curbed Comparisons, where we explore what you can rent for a certain dollar amount in various Detroit neighborhoods. This week we’re looking at rentals within $100 of today’s price: $1,050.

This cute house in NW Goldberg is close to New Center, Midtown, Wayne State, and Henry Ford Hospital. It’s just under 1,000 square feet with two bedrooms and one bath, plus an open layout in the living space and a fenced yard. It’s renting for $995 per month.

Close to the Riverfront is this classy condo at the Garden Court Apartments. This one bedroom, one bath apartment is filled with character, including hardwood floors, a fireplace, and wainscoting. It’s renting at the higher end of our range at $1,100 per month.

In West Village, a one bedroom, one bath apartment is available for $1,000/month at the Parkstone. These units have hardwood floors and a tiny kitchen. They’re located right in the heart of the neighborhood, walkable to restaurants and businesses.

In Old Redford, here’s a four bedroom, one-and-a-half bath house in our price range. It also has extra space in the basement and an adjoining lot. It’s close to businesses and restaurants in northwest Detroit, and it’s listing for $975 per month.
