Everyone loves a bargain, and these Michigan houses under $10,000 are the bargain of the century. Where can you find fixer uppers for just pennies on the dollar? Well, if you don’t mind living in depressed areas, then look no further than this sampling of bargain basement homes in Michigan.
19395 Moenart St., Detroit, MI 48234
This Detroit three-bedroom, one-bath house is a FannieMae Homepath Property. The exterior has great curb appeal and the interior has a few intact original details including a fireplace mantel with bookcases on either side, arched doorways and some hardwood flooring.
4017 Trumbull Avenue, Flint, MI 48504
The seller says bring all offers for this 1.290-square-foot, four-bedroom, 1.5-bath bungalow. It has a quarter-acre yard with mature trees and a full basement. The dormer and front windows add charm, too. A house this size is very manageable when it comes time for rehabbing.
166 W MANCHESTER Street, Battle Creek, MI 49037
I have come across way worse homes for five times the money than this Battle Creek diamond in the rough. Of course, the low price reflects the location. Battle Creek, along with Flint and Detroit have seen better days. This circa 1920 bungalow, however, features such a charming interior that you might want to take a chance on the location. Consider the beautiful woodwork, built-ins, staircase and hardwood floors. You know me by now. I’m in love with the original kitchen cupboards. Some even still have the original hardware. As far as Michigan houses under $10,000 go, this one is a beauty.
As per the realtor: “Vinyl exterior, enclosed front porch, detached garage. Lots of original woodwork is left and the interior will need some work. Hardwood floors throughout. This home is being made available through the Transform This Home program. Property will be sold AS-IS with no repairs required of seller. Additional inspections will be required for occupancy by the City of Battle Creek. Owner Occupant offers will be considered a priority.”
