8113 Saint Paul Street: $250,000

We’ll start in West Village, where this five-bedroom, two bath townhouse is coming in at the low end of the price range. You’ll need some of that cash (and more) for improvements, though. The townhouse has a lot of character, including fireplaces and built-ins, plus a very old-looking kitchen. It spans 2,300 square feet and it’s located in between the shops on Agnes Street and Kercheval in West Village. It’s listed through O’Connor Real Estate.

959 Longfellow Street: $257,000

Over in Boston-Edison, here’s a 2012-updated four-bedroom brick home in our price range. It has a living room with big windows and a handsome fireplace, hardwood floors downstairs, carpeting in the bedrooms, and a small, fenced yard. It sits right next to the Lodge on the west side of the historic district. It’s listed through Austin Black II at City Living Detroit.

3721 Chippewa Street: $264,900

Over in Green Acres, here’s a tastefully updated three-bedroom home on a double lot. The new kitchen has a large island, quartz counters, and hardwood floors. The gorgeous bathroom has a new clawfoot tub, subway tiling, and new lighting. Also find a sun room, a greenhouse, and a huge backyard. It’s in the northern part of Detroit, near the Meijer on 8 Mile, the shops on Livernois, Palmer Park, and Ferndale. It’s listed through Red Door Realty.

747 Delaware: $269,900

And at the top of our price range is this New Center condo. It’s move-in ready with three bedrooms; two and a half baths; a living space with a sitting area, living room, and dining room; a kitchen with a breakfast nook; and a small outdoor space. It’s located near the Fisher Building, Henry Ford Hospital, Wayne State, and the Qline. HOA fees are $398 per month.
