Detroit MI real estate update

Real Estate Agent with Real Estate One 6501304423

2010 was a banner year for the City of Detroit real estate market as the average home sales price did go up.  In 2009 the average sales price was only $11,318.00 and this past year it moved up to $14,431.00.  Which is a little better.  Gone are the absolute steals of homes under $7,000.  Now you would have to pay closer to $10,000 to get a nice home.

Of course the theives are still stealing the copper, furnaces, and hot water tanks out of vacant homes so you most likely would have to replace them.

Even the average days on the market has gone down a little.  In 2009 it was 81 days now it is 70 days.  Of course Detroit home prices can not rise dramatically because any bank loaning in Detroit is going to look hard at the appraisal.

Wow it is just unbelievable what you can buy a house for there.  I think I could have bought 4 houses for what I paid for my Lincoln last year.  Best of luck!

There are definitely alot a beautiful homes in Detroit for a steal, but many have been damaged or destroyed due to vandalism. It absolutely heart breaking to see the state of the city as it is today. Hopefully Detroit can make a comeback.

Russ, good information, that's why we are still lending in Detroit.  The majority of our investors are still looking at the city for it's high ROI but realizing that it comes with it's higher risk for possible problems that you mentioned.  We still seem to be the only private hard money lender who will take on the Detroit market for real estate investors, lending to purchase and rehab abandoned houses.  Lets face it, this is our backyard and we all have a stake in what happens to Detroit.  Thanks for the statistics.
