What $125K buys in Detroit right now

New, 1 comment

There’s homes in the northwest and far east sides

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


One of three homes selling in the Live6 area at this price point, we’re partial to the Bagley neighborhood, which has solid density and housing stock. We’re also partial to this home’s asymmetrical facade and the high-pitched roofs. It’s 1,574 square feet with four-bedrooms and a clean, modern update that kept the hardwood floors and plaster details intact.

Another in northwest Detroit, this four-bedroom home has a shimmering brick exterior with similarly steep gables as the one on Roselawn. The 1,860-square-footer was recently remodeled and has a brand new kitchen with a pass-through to the dining room. There’s also a lot of room for customization in the decor—note the unpainted moldings around the windows.

Sensing a theme? This brick colonial in Morningside has similar square footage (1,443 across three bedrooms) and facade as the others on the list. Like the others, it was also remodeled and had the floors refinished. There’s a brand new kitchen with an interesting exposed wood beam. We don’t say this much, but the basement looks to be in good shape as well.

Another one in Bagley (and also on Woodingham), this brick home on a corner lot has some unique features.

There’s the cool turret-like roof above the front entrance with a little bit of stained glass on the front and vestibule doors. At 1,743 square feet, with five bedrooms and a two-car garage, it’s a bit more spacious than the others. There’s also a great mantle and marble inset above the wood-burning fireplace. Oh and let’s not forget the basement bar.
