The city of Detroit tends to have a bad reputation. Many people think of the city as being unsafe, bankrupt, and dilapidated. But if you know anything about Detroit, you would know that these are just misconceptions.

On this episode of Investing in Real Estate, I’m sharing the truth about Detroit, Michigan! I’ll discuss why the city is actually one of my favorite rental markets, and share some exciting information about a few different neighborhoods. If you’re ready to reframe the way you think about Detroit, this episode is for you!

More About This Show
Recently, I visited one of my favorite rental markets—Detroit, Michigan! I had the opportunity to visit some of my very first properties, and take a look firsthand at how the market has shifted over the past few years. 

In recent years, a lot has changed in Detroit. I would guess that when asked what the biggest driver is in Detroit, most people would guess the automotive industry. However, that is no longer the case. Now, the healthcare industry dominates the job market in the city. 

Companies like Amazon and Google are even putting down roots in Detroit, and the city has added major tax advantages for both individuals and companies to settle in the metro area. In fact, I recently heard from a tenant placement professional that people in Detroit suburbs are moving closer into the city. 

Recently, it seems like everywhere you look there are articles about Detroit, and they’re all good news. For instance, the Fitzgerald neighborhood is undergoing a $4 million redevelopment project.Additionally, on the north end 70 homes are being built or rehabbed. It’s an exciting time to be an investor in Detroit! 

On today’s show, I’ll share more about the future of Detroit. I’ll speak in detail about my first two properties, and why this Michigan market is one of my favorites. I’ll share why single-family homes are so powerful, and much more!
