We recently saw what $130,000 can buy in neighborhoods around Detroit (basically smaller flips). We also saw a disaster in West Village list for $200,000. Today we have a nice brick house in the Fitzgerald neighborhood, which is in the early stages of a neighborhood revitalization. This house comes in at 2,100 square feet, with a backyard and curb appeal. The price? $149,900.
This house has three bedrooms, two baths with original tiling, a large fireplace in the living room, hardwood floors, a kitchen with room for a small table, a formal dining room, some funky wallpaper, and a basement for storage (including a second kitchen). Also find an odd carport and a garage out back. The house looks like it could be refreshed in some ways, but in all, it’s a solid house on a lovely street. It’s listed through Ryan Kain at Re/Max Leading Edge.
