Detroit has hit rock bottom for prices. The sad thing (or great if you are a Buyer) is many areas in the Country are still low. You can get incredible homes even in Florida and Geogia.  Boca Raton Florida Homes For Sale at blogspot has plenty of ideas to get low priced houses even in Palm beach County. The Real Estate listed in the article. near Atlanta, are nice deals. The Counties outside of Atlanta had plenty of new homes built before the crash.

This article is quite misleading if you consider the picture shown vs the "average" listing price.  They show a house that sells for a few hundred thousand and then print the lead-in as presenting that house as a cheap price.  Like the Trentwood listings averaging $77435 while showing a picture of a listing going for $375000.  Read and believe at your own risk.  But showing a house that expensive did make me read the article.  But it is still misleading...unfortunately, also typical of the media.

Wow, I am 40-years old and being raised in Detroit were some of the best years of my life.  I can a current owner as well there and I am making plans to return home to help rebuild my city after being away for almost 20 years.  Please don't be fooled by the media and stats.  This city will turnaround in the next 5 years as stated because for the first time in my 40-year history my home town has "truly" hit rock bottom.  There is no place to go but UP.  So, just know that there are good things happening that never make Mainstream Media because that is not what makes for interesting reading.  The jobs are there BUT it depends on what YOU can bring to the table.  You can create your own path because the city is open and ready for the brave souls who are willing to chart new territory.  I am one of those people and if you are too, I suggest you get in now while it's the cheapest it's going to be.  You can actually RETIRE much earlier than ever imagined.  This WILL require having connections in Detroit to lead you to the profitable ventures. Being "random" in this market will surely cost you your shirt.  Careful strategic planning, networking and buying will make your dreams a reality.  I am going to be one of "those connected people" that YOU will be able to team up with help you get your "piece of the pie".  This is my perspective from the "inside out", not outside in :) GOD BLESS you all and don't miss this blessing in disguise.  Think about it...

I thought they were going to do the old "Robocop" thing to Detroit. You know? Call it New Detroit & rebuild etc. etc. What happened to that plan?

They've been saying Detroit will rebound for the last 40 years. It never happens. The city is bulldozing entire city blocks of houses and proposing "urban farming". That's what happens when the city goes from 1.8 million to 750,000 residents.  If you like being robbed, murdered, have a school system that's by far the worst in the nation or pay high taxes and get no services it's THE city for you. I don't know where the average home price came from but most of the houses in Detroit can be had for $10,000 or less. Ask the many slum lords that own property there.

Who the hell would live in Detroit or Cleveland? I wouldn't live there if they gave me the place.

These poor markets are nothing compared with places like southeast Kansas and northeast Oklahoma.  Homes there can be bought for 50 K-75 K quite easily.  3 bedroom/2 baths.  Of course, someone would actually want to live there.

The cheapest place in the country to live is Wallace, Indiana.  It's a nice small town of mostly elderly people.  There's no crime and no police!  I pay about $700.00 per month for utilities.  We each have our own well and septic systems, so no water/sewage.  Only bills we have are phone, dish, Internet, electric, and propane in the winter.  We own our properties outright--paid cash for them.

The Detroit median income is ridiculous. Does this site take into account that Detroit is the Welfare model city for the United States? That city has the highest welfare ratio of any city in the country, so of course the median income would be $25k. Also this is interesting because the average Welfare family of 4 receives approximately $58k, but doesn't report it as income.

Why use prices of only 4 bedroom homes??? Most people look for 3 bedroom homes around here.

Riverdale and College Park, GA may have low housing prices but they are not good places to live.
