usroute, ms313, I'm not saying that soldierhobo's threads are typical, but that tommy_407 should probably do some investigating before jumping in with both feet.

Well in that case yes I completely agree. He needs to do alot of research and come see the properties for himself.

MIDTOWN

If you just want to rent first, there are still many studios and 1-bedroom apartments in Midtown that are between $600 to $900. They will not be brand new places. Please see below web address for rental rates

Rent | Midtown Detroit Inc.

Here is a relatively new mixed-use development in Midtown, with studios from $900 to 950. Units include washer and dryer.

The Auburn - Center City Properties

If you desire a roommate in a 2-bedroom apartment in Midtown, there are plenty of options under $750 per roommate.

I would also look into the Lafayette Park district east of downtown; there are studios being offered in the $700-$800 range. Lafayette Towers has 528 square foot studios for $799.


PLACES TO BUY A HOUSE IF YOU GET TO THAT POINT

HAMTRAMCK
Hamtramck is an interesting community, very diverse, gentrifying, but still rough around the edges. Unfortunately, the houses are fairly small and non-descript. The adjacent community of Highland Park has amazing housing (see here), but is still in decline and has all kinds of problems.

SOUTHWEST DETROIT/MEXICANTOWN
Diverse, rough around the edges, walkable, but crime is a concern; be street smart

Honestly, I didn't find many homes for sale in the better part of Mexicantown

Here is one right of the main strip in the "Springwells Village". Vintage Southwest, but the houses are not really historic.

NORTH END & ISLANDVIEW
$40,000 House in the North End

SINGLE WHITE GIRLS
Midtown and Downtown are going to have the single white girls within the city. The trendy "urban" suburbs of Ferndale, Royal Oak and the surrounding communities also have a lot of young single white ladies.

For gyms in Midtown/Downtown:

Anytime Fitness

Wayne State University Fitness Center
