I am getting ready to buy a rental home in Detroit for a steal.

I found a super deal on a house in Detroit. It is situated in Brightmoor and sounds great.  Is it hard to rent in Detroit?

I would be careful. You can buy houses all over Detroit for 1000 dollars. It just depends where you are. If you are near Wayne state it will be easier to rent. The safer areas are much easier to rent but you also have to think about getting robbed while fixing up the property and taxes are pretty steep.

Good luck.

SoCal I received a spam email today regarding cheap rental property in Detroit. Must have got my email from Zillow. You may also look forward to receiving one.

Happy funding, Rudi

Kind of a shame. Dig up a 2 1/2 year old thread and then spam.

@ Brian,

Realize you're new, but you need to check Zillow's "Good Neighbor Policy". The short version is "no self-promotion". This includes any contact info or links to your websites in the forums. You can have all this in your profile, but can't put it here.

Welcome to Zillow's forums.

p.s. If you check the post, it will show you how old the post is. While not a Zillow rule, you'll often get flack from the peanut gallery if you dig up old posts.

LOL frisky. On the bright side though, maybe you could give out a free bible and pistol with each lease signed to bring more folks in the door.

I don't know. There are cheap houses in Detroit that were pulling good rent, but with the job market there I don't know what things are like in the rental market now. There was an agent on the board from Detroit that seemed nice, but I haven't seen him for a little while. Maybe he'll see your post and give you some ideas about the rental market there. I'd be interested in knowing too.
