18244 Oak Drive: $305,000

First up is a five-bedroom, three-and-a-half bath mostly-updated home in the University District. It has hardwood floors, a small but renovated kitchen, a lot of wood paneling, some newer systems, and original details. The front has nice landscaping and a handsome entryway, and the back has a two-car garage. It’s located near shops and restaurants on Livernois and Ferndale.

55 West Canfield Street, Apartment 313: $290,000

If you don’t need too much space, but you want to live in a walkable location, this one-bedroom loft is up for sale in Midtown. HOA fees are $300 per month and include gated parking and a storage unit. This loft (#313) has in-unit laundry, exposed brick, and big windows bringing light into the living space. It’s close to the Qline, the arts district, Wayne State, and downtown.

300 Riverfront Drive, Unit 4I: $300,000

This two-bedroom, two-bath condo at the Riverfront Towers falls in right at our price range. This condo has Canada and River views and updated finishes, while the community offers tennis courts, a pool, a store, a restaurant, and access to the Riverfront. HOA fees are $483 per month here, and the towers are close to downtown and Corktown.

1733 Canton Street: $290,000

Perhaps you’re looking for a project to work on. This Islandview duplex could use some love, and it’s coming in at our price range. This large property has six bedrooms, grand staircases, murals on the ceiling, and some lovely original details. It’s close to Belle Isle and West Village.

1525 Edison Street: $299,000

We saw this Boston-Edison home in a neighborhood comparison earlier this summer. It has six bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, new finishes, and a garage. It’s located in the beautiful historic neighborhood, a short drive to Midtown and downtown.
