I think a home in a top turnaround location like for sale Potts Point is a good idea, but there are still some problems with agents. Even if the location, everything will be a problem if the agent is not good enough to start with.

YOU must educate YOURSELF when thinking about one of the biggest purchases of your life! Try an amazon ebook "stuff I told my kids about how to buy your first house." Less than 3 bucks and free to borrow for prime members. I got this for my son to get some basic info BEFORE he sees anything with a real estate agent.

I am happy to see that at least people who are posting comments are not buying this outrageous story.....I will not be moving to Oakland nor Detroit any time soon, even if the prices were reasonable.....

This must be a college entrance exam or an IQ test on reasoning. San Francisco, San Diego, Portland, Detroit, Los Angeles, Reno........Which one does not fit?

no one but the bank ever made a dime on housing owner wise that is, there is a whole industry there to rip you off brokers agents etc etc.
If your the buyer who is going to take a mortgage by the time you actually figure interest, maintenance, taxes, the cost to sell your losing a lot of money.
The american dream is a myth perpetrated by the banks.

Love how overinflated the market is. It's all smoke in mirrors folks. The higher the prices, the more the banks get in interest before you can really get at the principal! You aren't meant to ever own your home. It's a trick.

That Tudor Style home would be fantastic. Might need your own army to defend it?

The economy sucks in our town because of the loss of manufacturing.

Who in the god damn hell are you kidding? Even the biggest idiot can see with their cracked out eyes that this economy is not turning around, especially Detroit. The news and media has been saying this like I don't know 100 times plus. Hey the economy is turning around, hey the economy is turning around hey..... STFU, media and news lies. Every last one of you do not have a brain.

I live near Detroit and am intimately familiar with it.
It is not making a turn-around. Only an idiot would buy a home here. Large sections of the city appear bombed out. It is a world class city alright - in the same class as the slums of Soweto, Calcutta or Mexico City.
Police and FIre Dept. - a joke. Call the cops when your neighbor's house is being burglarized, and they don't come out.
School system - probably the worst in the country.
City government - Graft, Graft, Graft. Was looted by Mayors Coleman "the soulman" Young and Kwamee Kilpatrick who is going off to Club Fed next month.
Go to Detroit and you take your life in your hands. High taxes, high insurance rates, no basic services - even street lighting!
The best that can happen is an all consuming fire and starting again from the ashes. Maybe we can get the air force to practice saturation bombing to level whats left.
WHy is this? White flight. WOuld you live here if you didn't have to?

Tiny bubbles in the wine.may your city turn around just like mine!

Majority is in California, a place I once lived, but got the hell out of.

this article sounds like **** to me. How can you say a city looking to declare bankruptcy is turning around? i truly hope msn doesnt believe americans to be that stupid as to believe this garbage.
