For $45K, an adorable bungalow near I-96

Often times when we see houses or lofts list in Detroit, we get comments about how much it would cost in other cities. That’s exactly what we thought when we saw this listing; we also wondered what it might go for in a different neighborhood. This one is nestled just south of I-96, near Russell Woods (we reference The Neighborhoods Map when searching for appropriate names, and this was simply “Grand River-I96.” We tried.) The Google Street View (albeit from 2013) showed a pretty nice street. The price for this cute 1,828-square-foot bungalow? $45,000.

Inside, you’ll find four bedrooms, one and a half baths, a fireplace in the living room, and a breakfast nook off the kitchen. A two-car garage sits out back. For comparison, this house (which was updated) sold for $45K not too far away in the Petosky-Otsego neighborhood recently. Can you imagine the price of this in nearby Rosedale Park? Maybe Southwest Detroit? West Village? It’s listed through KW Metro.
