I see it has been six months since your question. Are you still looking for a home in the Detroit area?
I buy, sell, rent and rehab homes in the Warrendale area of Detroit. The home styles are very diverse as well as the people living in the area. If you are still looking, I have a recently rehabbed home that you may be interested in. Please contact me for pictures and a list of the updtaes or if you have any other questions that I may be able to help you with. Craig

If you are looking to buy in Detroit, I would look into Rosedale Park and North Rosedale Park. The neighborhood is still somewhat diverse, and safe. North Rosedale Park has its own park, community center and ice rink in the winter. It also has a strong block club/community center presence. You may get The occassional stolen car in South Rosedale, but both neighborhoods are beautiful with custom built homes. Good Luck to you.

By the way there is a nice three bedroom a few streets over at 6801 Brace Avenue for a mere $27,500. If you wish to talk further about metro detroit or detroit and the houses feel free to contact me at pontiac6k@gmail.com

I live on one of the next streets parallel to Rosemont (Ave. or Dr.) in Warrendale, which encompasses both sides of W. Warren Ave. My house also has 4 beds & 2 baths (however, a 2-family; on the other hand, the entrance is common, instead of private) and it was appraised at $105,000 circa 2004 (without looking up the exact date) by a leading bank, but values have declined since then. When I get junk mail from realtors, showing prices and addresses of recently sold homes in this area, the pattern, almost without fail, is that the higher the street number, the lower the sale price. From 6000 to 7200 (Ford Rd. to W. Warren Ave. is predominantly Caucasian, with some Arabs, African Americans and others. North of W. Warren Ave., 7200 & up, is mixed, increasingly African American and more predominantly so the higher the street number. The lower values, as the street number increases, reflect the reality of increasing urban blight, as one goes North (increasing street numbers), as neighborhoods change from mixed to ghetto. One is more likely to see vacant lots or houses that are abandoned, burnt-out or boarded up. I have lived here since 1993 and lived 4 blocks over another 10 years, 1983-93. The bottom line is that the price may be OK (and the area, too) in the 6000-7200 range, but the lower the street number, the higher the market value. The part of Warrendale that is South of W. Warren Ave. has seen better days when more homes were owner-occupied, instead of rentals, but is still OK. This part is a peninsula of Detroit (formerly Dearborn Twp., but Dearborn did not want to put schools in this approximately square mile in the early 1900s, so the area was dealt to Detroit, an annex or something. Anyway, this southern area is bounded by Dearborn 2 blocks East of Rosemont (south of Paul) and it is also Dearborn south of Ford Rd.. About 10 blocks or so West is Dearborn Heights (again, south of Paul). Rosemont does not go through to Ford Rd., so traffic is light. The area is good for people who want to live in a fair area of Detroit to enjoy lower taxes and water bills. In real estate, it's location, location, location, so if the same Detroit house was located a few blocks away in Dearborn, everything would be dramatically higher, i.e., the selling price, the property taxes, and the water bills, as Detroit supplies water to our suburbs, but gouges them on the rates. If the police are called in Dearborn or Dearborn Hts., for example, they will arrive within about 5 minutes. Here, the cops come in anywhere from up to an hour or so later to never. If you are concerned about area, I recommend the 'burbs. If you are an urban pioneer, proceed with caution. I can remember when the streets around here were quite full of cars, although most homes have driveways, so many cars that I had to drive slowly to Warren in case a kid or dog ran out between cars. Now, I can drive 2 or 3 blocks and count 7 cars, as I did one night recently, seeing an occasional spot of broken, tempered glass in the street, approximately where someone's driver-side door was. Most people are using their driveways now and parking further up, adding security lighting, etc., because of theft, vandalism, etc. Air bag theft occurred on my street as long ago as the early 1990s.

Rosemont Avenue is NOT Rosedale gardens across the board, it is also Warrendale and a few other neighborhoods, it depends what cross street is near this part of Rosemont. If it is near McNichols (6 Mile) that is Rosedale Gardens. If it is near Warren it is Warrendale, which is not a stellar area, but probably one of the betterleft in Detroit. If you're looking in Detroit near Warrendale, consider Copper Canyon, near W Parkway Street and Warren, between there and the park, or possibly off Paul Avenue and Mercury Drive, up to about Asbury Park Street.
