Buy one of the small houses just north of Oakwood main, Culver and that area. If you are there for 5 years, I am guessing a surgical residency.....You'd do well to live close, and that is a reasonably safe area as well as dirt cheap. Lots of families with kids and older people. I would live between Oakwood and Outer Drive, south of Rotunda and north of Oakwood.
If not, move to the Dearborn Hills area, close to the Dearborn Hills Golf Course. (Not the Country Club) Lots of homes for sale there too. This is a very stable and attractive area. Several houses for sale by owner. If you need help, talk to Med-Ed, and they can refer you to docs who live in the area.
Good luck, and kick some butt on the wards!
