For someone looking to buy, one of the great things about Bay City is its diversity of housing stock. Just take a look at these four homes, representing a nearly $740,000 swing in prices, from one side of town to another.

Way on the other side of town is this well-kept duplex. Built in 1910, it has the built-in wood features to prove it. Both units are vacant and both feature three bedrooms and one and a half bathrooms apiece. Perhaps ideal for families, this home is just blocks from Bay City Eastern High School.
1112 Center Avenue: $270,000
This unique opportunity offers a historic home on a historic stretch of Bay City, while also being zoned for multi-family rental use--featuring 14 units, no less. Built in 1880, this Victorian-era mansion is located in a beautiful neighborhood with stately homes, an easy sell for many a renter. A quick walk, and an even quicker bikeride, to downtown, reach attractions like City Market, Populace Coffee, and Mulligan’s Pub within minutes.
6493 S. 4 Mile Road: $799,999
By far the most expensive listing we’ve ever featured in these pages, this home – estate, really – is located between Delta College and a golf course. Sitting on a six-acre lot, the house features three bedrooms and three and a half bathrooms spread across nearly 3,000 square feet. Built in the style of an Italian Villa, the house features a number of extravagant amenities, including a 13-seat private theater, a wine cellar and tasting room, and a party veranda overlooking the fifth hole.
