etroit, Michigan, has always been a city of extremes. While this perceived volatility might make some real estate investors hesitant about getting involved in the area, Detroit has always rewarded investments driven by numbers and made by passionate Motor City devotees. The entire local economy is a testament to what profound dedication to ideals and consistently objective placement of cold, hard, investment capital can do for an area. “These days, there is revitalization everywhere.

They’re building a new international bridge to Canada, and 100 of the Fortune 500 compa- nies have offices in Detroit and the surrounding area.” With that development has come rising property values and great excitement about a city that many feared would never recover from the double blows of the housing crash and financial meltdown. It did however, and it’s still growing strong. Think Realty Regional Spotlight: Detroit, Michigan NOW, AS ALWAYS, “THE MOTOR CITY” MARKET IS FULL OF PASSION AND POTENTIAL. by Carole VanSickle Ellis
