Bloomfield Hills if you have enough money left.

Birmingham would be perfect for you.

Grosse Pointe(s) wold work.

Rochester Hills is a good fallback, Novi probably too.

Probably the best place for you anywhere would be Irvine or Newport Beach California.

You can redeem yourself by making better financial decisions - make investments in things that generate cash returns, a solid home and/or rental property.
I'm fairly certain OP hasn't asked us to be his financial planners, so he doesn't need redemption of any kind, nor does he need you to point out he shouldn't have made the purchases he did. It's his money, he is far from living beyond his means and he simply wanted advice on housing in his price range. The rest is noise.

While this may be true, your level of condescension is, quite frankly, off-putting and kind of reeks of jealousy. He likes nice stuff. How's that a marker of insecurity?
