Check out this listing - I lived in this house for 4 months in transition to my relocation to Atlanta and it's sooooo adorable! So much history, yet quaint and totally remodeled and affordable! If I lived in Lapeer/Davison area - I would live here! Good luck with your findings!!
I grew up in Davison and now live in Lapeer. I am one of the top volume Buyers agents in these areas. If you need further assistance I would be happy to help you.
The first step is to get prequalified for a mortgage. There are lenders out the offering assistance to first time homebuyers with their closing costs. There are too many factors to quote a price per square foot. You're looking in 2 different counties. We would need to know a price range to be able to calculate from. You need the services of a Buyers Agent who will be able to run comparables for the area you find a home in. If you have any additional questions or need assistance just give me a call or send me an e-mail.

Say you are looking at a 1,500-square-foot home that is listed for $150,000. The price per-square-foot is $100. Maybe the home next door is 2,000 square feet, and it is listed at $185,000. The price per-square-foot of the larger home is $92.50. Is the $185K house a "better deal"? Who knows?!
This is why you need a Realtor working for you. They will be able to help determine which home has the better value and can determine what a good offer would be, base on sold comps in the area.
