What better time to look at houses then late spring in Michigan? Birds are chirping, the plants are budding, and all the spring rains let you check for any water damage in the basement.
Yes, it’s spring in Michigan. Let’s take a jog around town and see three affordable houses in Bay City. They could be starter homes, forever homes, or investments, but they’re definitely worth taking a look at.
604 W. Midland Street: $89,900
This four-bedroom, three-bathroom is a real looker, sharply painted and well taken care of. The buyer gets all of the charm of a 1910-built Victorian stunner with the benefit of an updated and modern kitchen--not to mention that beautiful wrap-around porch. A quick walk to Brooklyn Boyz Pizza, Mama Lupo’s Homemade Ice Cream, and Cops & Doughnuts, to boot.
307 Frank Street: $94,500
This house lies north of where the Saginaw River bends. Built in the year 1900, the home features a nice yard with a deck, firepit, arbor, and garden. The interiors are so well-maintained it’s hard to believe the house is nearly 120 years old. At nearly 2,000 sq. ft., the home is large and has four bedrooms, three bathrooms, and even a three-car garage.
919 Stanton Street: $62,900
Travel east of the river and you’ll end up at Stanton Street. This particular home is on the smaller end, but what it lacks in size it makes up for in style. This 1890-built ranch-style home features updated windows, furnace, water heater, and plumbing. It really is sharp for a home of its size, as the photos in the listing will attest. Just blocks from neighborhood haunts Ole Tyme Broadway, Spinning Wheel Bar, and Bay City Bill’s Bar & Grill.
