Zillow Advice: Home Buying - I am getting ready to buy a rental home in Detroit for a steal. http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I-am-getting-ready-to-buy-a-rental-home-in-Detroit-for-a-steal/204329/ Zillow Advice | Zillow Real Estate I would be careful.

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.<br/><br/>Good luck.

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. Thu, 26 Feb 2009 20:49:00 GMT http://www.zillow.com/advice-thread/I-am-getting-ready-to-buy-a-rental-home-in-Detroit-for-a-steal/204329/ 2009-02-26T20:49:00Z
