    Hello, i own a house in detroit Mi between greenfield and southfield close to dearborn, and my current house price is 15000 so do you think the market will go back anytime soon? thanks.

    I saw the video of the ice house. The market sure has frozen over, but I think it’ll get better sooner than we think.
