    Yes, yes you could.

    THIS IS YOUR CHANCE FOLKS. Live right across the street from me and a stone's throw from all the fun in Detroit, Ferndale, and beyond! Only $800 a month plus utilities for 2 bedrooms.

    or buy it and rent it out for $800/month

    Knowing what I paid for my house in 2006 (albeit one that's bigger and has a basement, but still) seeing that for sale price makes me fucking cry.

    The only proper way to handle not having a staircase is having a fireman's pole put in.

    Clearly there's another way up anyways.

    Wait....850 square feet? That's the same square footage as my 1-bedroom condo...

    But they did an awesome job. Love the subway tile in the bathroom. But for that cost, they could have at least finished the basement - could have even added another bedroom down there or something.

    Yeah, it's kind of crazy. I'm no expert, but even if the company who bought it was the general contractor and able to manage all the jobs themselves, I can't imagine that rehab cost any less than $30k. So it's still a nice profit if they can sell it for around $80k, I just don't know how realistic anything more than that will be anytime in the next year. But who knows, maybe they're playing the long game.

    When it does sell though, it'll help my property values at least.

    Damn, a house for the cost of a car. A bit more money for some rehab work than a profit of $30K+...definitely worth looking into if not just for the investment ;)
  • RyanMMRyanMM Ferndale, MI Icrontian
    721 sq feet in Ferndale (near the train tracks), 1/4 mile from a Meijer, 2 car detached garage - $50k.

    With interest rates being what they are, you can't rent a house that cheap.

    Damn. Definitely want. Seems doubtful it'd happen, though.

    To be fair, that wouldn't include the basement (if there is one, can't really tell). EDIT: Based on the Zillow pictures, I'd say it definitely has a basement... so up that square footage another 425 most likely as those numbers never include basement space.

    I really wish the house flipper that I bought my place from had done that nice of a job :(

    Except the basement is unfinished... so I wouldn't include that square footage unless it was finished space that you could use, instead of just storage space.

    If Ivy Tech had a Detroit campus and I had that money stuff I hear so much about but never seem to have. I'd jump on it. #Escape_velocity_impossible
