Welcome to this week’s Curbed Comparisons, where we look at homes for sale in different neighborhoods around Detroit. This week, we found four very unique options in four very different neighborhoods. Today, we’re looking houses within $10,000 of our budget: $270,000.

14629 Klenk Street: $269,000

Maybe you’re all about that island life. This three bedroom, two bath home sits on Klenk Island, along the canals of east Detroit. It’s not the fanciest or most updated house, but you get access to the water, which is key here. The house is 1,441 square feet with two sitting rooms, a front porch, and a backyard that sits up against one of the canals. Houses here rarely go up for sale.

57 Pallister Street: $270,000

For something completely different, here’s a colorful condo in New Center. At our price point, you get one bedroom and one bath, with a few different living areas. HOA fees run $233 per month, and the condo includes garage parking. It’s a few blocks away from the Fisher Building, close to the Qline.

2495 West Boston Boulevard: $274,900

You can get into Boston-Edison at this price point. This five bedroom house has been recently renovated—think white and bright. It has a spacious living room with a fireplace, a fairly large kitchen, hardwood floors, a basement for storage, and plumbing and electrical updates. This brick house sits west of the Lodge near Linwood.

1535 Chateaufort Place: $275,000

Chateaufort Place is one of those hidden gems in Lafayette Park, and we don’t often see these co-ops come up for sale. This maintained unit has two bedrooms, two and a half baths, a basement for extra living space, and a galley kitchen. Could it use some updates? Sure. But it’s in a great location near downtown and Eastern Market, with lots of green space nearby. The $723 HOA fee covers city taxes, water, HVAC, grounds maintenance, and more.
