Here’s what $160K buys around Detroit

A studio to a four-bedroom house

Welcome to this week’s Curbed Comparisons, where we look at homes for sale in different neighborhoods around Detroit. Today, we’re looking at houses within $10,000 of our budget: $160,000.

This handsome home in the Bagley neighborhood has nice original details, like a fireplace surrounded by built-ins, along with a new kitchen and roof. The home also has four bedrooms, a downstairs office, two-and-a-half baths, and storage in the attic. There’s been a lot of real estate activity in this area lately, and this house is listed for $159,900.

For those who need to be close to Wayne State, the museums, the hospitals, or downtown, this studio at the Park Shelton may be a good fit. It comes in at 522 square feet, with laundry included in the tiny kitchen. This unit comes with garage parking, and the $341 HOA fee includes utilities. It’s listed for $158,000.

Here’s a charming house in North Rosedale Park for $154,000. At 2,100 square feet, it has three bedrooms, one-and-a-half baths, hardwood floors, a fireplace, and built-ins. It’s in a good neighborhood in northwest Detroit and close to many businesses along Grand River Avenue.

This revamped house in East English Village has a spacious new kitchen, with a slightly open concept to the dining room. This house has some old charm along with new fixtures and updates, with three bedrooms, one bath, and a basement that’s been painted black. It’s listing for $154,000.

And here’s a ranch or shotgun-style house located right next to the Lodge in Midtown. It’s 1,100 square feet on a considerable lot. For the neighborhood, it’s a pretty low price to get in at $169,900.
