Excellent choice for the area. Safe, quiet neighborhoods, nice brick homes, Grosse Pointe school district (very good schools), close to shopping areas and major roads/freeways. I am an investor and this is my primary target area. When you are ready to find your home, I can assist you. You will pay less than market value buying from an investor. There will be some implications if you are not a US citizen and I can also assist with that, given I worked for Homeland Security for ten years! Good luck and Happy New Year! Hopefully everything will workout for you and your family.
