Whether you’re a first time home buyer, looking to get into the landlord life, or a contractor searching for a flip, Bay City is a prime place to invest. Its housing stock is classic and quality, yet many homes can be found at an affordable price point.
Let’s take a look at three houses around town, and all for below the price of $100,000.
5445 Hilltop Drive: $94,900
Located just west of Middleground Island, this brick and cedar ranch squeaks in just below our price point. The two-bedroom and one-and-a-half bath was built in 1975 and features sky lights in the common areas and a dining room fireplace. Neighborhood amenities include Keit’s Greenhouses & Floral, Monitor Lanes, and Jack’s Fruit & Meat Market.
704 Fraser Street: $70,000
Located on the other side of the river, this home is a steal when you consider size vs. price. Plus, it’s one of the newer homes on the market for this part of town, with the three bedroom and two bathroom having been built in 2004. Amenities include a covered front porch, backyard deck, and two-car garage. This home is located just blocks from Bay City’s local music mecca Bemo’s Bar, plus staples Madison Avenue Deli and Barney’s Bakery.
926 Fraser Street: $69,500
Just blocks from our previous listing (and $500 less--hmm, bidding war?) is this historic east side bungalow. Built in 1885, the home has been completely updated, according to the listing. The kitchen and bath photos seemingly prove that claim to be true. 926 Fraser Street is a quick bike ride to Middleground Island, the Uptown district, and downtown. Plus you’re just blocks from the Lafayette Avenue corridor, making travel easy.
