Looks like the only things over 200k in the last month are the "PARK SHELTON" condos on Kirby.
Now the home on Arden Park is a 5 bed, they are asking 230k but the home has been on the market close to 2 years now.
Please give me a call or email so we can further discusss what you are looking for. Thank you in advance.

Carol Trowell answered:

I'm really not sure of the question you're answering however I have couples of different answers that might help

1. Tax liability is as stated prior for an account to help toh with. If, you don't have one I'll be glad to refer you

2. property taxes vary from house to house, neighborhood to neighborhood, or from City to City. It just depends on that ptoperty. As far as for city taxes they've been reducing the taxes. Also, you have a right to appeal your taxes. However, the window to due so padded as of the 15th for this year.

3. Management fees as usually not discussed kn an open forum as this. They do vary with the services. Which can be negotiated worth whomever you choose.

I surely hope answers helped you. For more direct communication Please either call or email me directly.

Best Regards,
Carol Trowell, Realtor

A warranty deed cost is based on the amount you are wanted to guarantee the title. It is usually based on the sales price of the property. It sounds like you need to do a quit claim deed. This you complete at the county assessors office. If you have additional questions I would recommend you seek out a good title co. I can refer if necessary.

Haig Istamboulian answered:

The bottom line is that the property is owned by you and ultimately it is your responsibility to make sure everything is managed correctly. Having a house vandalized is very common in Detroit and usually it is a matter of when, not if it happens.

You should take proper precautions in Detroit; such as real or fake cameras, security doors, lights and radios on a timer, a dog, or have someone stay in the home while it is being remodeled, etc.

If you hired a company to take care of the remodeling and the project was under their authority, then you should get some answers as to what happened. If you cannot come to some resolution with them then your only recourse would be to take them to court.

Ultimately that is your only recourse if you can't work it out with them. If you hire a lawyer, it may cost you more to take them to court than to just let it go and chalk it up to a learning experience. You could also take them to a small claims court on your own; file the lawsuit and represent yourself in court, that would be the least expensive route.

Just remember it will be up to you to prove negligence and/or fraud. That will be very tough in my opinion. Vandalism in Detroit homes is more common than you think. With the police spread thin in Detroit, home vandalism is not high on their list of quick response times.

Good Luck!
