Hi M

There is differences between realtor boards.Searching the MLS that I use, there are currently over 3300 houses on the market in the city of Detroit and 292 houses sold in the month of January, so there is approx. a 11.5 month supply of houses. It is still a buyers market and there are many investment opportunities in Detroit and the surrounding suburbs.

We have several MLS's that deal with Detroit properties. Macomb, Oakland as well at Detroit. Not all properties are listed with the Detroit Board. Alot of homes for sale are short sales and are taking alot longer to sell. Also, as with all large cities there are good and bad areas, with the economy in Michigan being so difficult there are so many homes on the market that investors can be picky as to where they buy. There are currently over 9000 homes for sale in Wayne county alone.

I hope this explains your question.
