Detroit home comparisons: What $125K buys right now

New, 4 comments

Welcome to this week’s Curbed Comparisons, where we look at homes for sale in different neighborhoods around Detroit. Is one man’s castle another man’s condo? Today, we’re looking at houses within $10,000 of our budget: $125,000.

6039 Kensington Avenue: $125,000

First up is this nice-looking 2,000-square-foot home in the northern part of East English Village. This house has some slightly unusual shutter decor in the living room, a newer kitchen, five bedrooms, an open lofty area upstairs, and a large backyard that could benefit from some landscaping. It’s close to I-94 and the Grosse Pointes, and located in the Curbed Detroit neighborhood of the year.

1300 East Lafayette, #305: $120,000

Moving closer to downtown, our price range can snag a renovated one bedroom, one bath co-op in Lafayette Park. This unit has a neutral color design, with new counter tops and appliances in the kitchen and new flooring. It’s on the third floor, but still has views of Canada. The HOA fee of $939 per month covers taxes, heat, water, AC, and amenities in the community.

8272 East Morrow Circle: $130,000

In the Aviation Sub, here’s a recently renovated, three bedroom brick home in our price range. In addition to a new kitchen, find both a living room and a family room, plus a retro basement and a fenced yard. This neighborhood sits right next to Dearborn on Detroit’s west side.

14960 Faust Avenue: $125,000

And in Rosedale Park, here’s a handsome two-bedroom, one-and-a-half bath house on a corner lot. This home has original details, some extra living space in the basement, and a two-car garage. It’s close to shops and restaurants along Grand River in northwest Detroit.
