May days: Springtime real estate check in Mt. Pleasant

As the weather warms up, so too does the real estate market. What better time to take a walk around the block and see what’s for sale in our Mt. Pleasant neighborhoods?

Be they starter homes or investments, here are three houses listed at or below $100,000 that caught our eye.

713 E. Michigan Street: $85,000

For those looking for a slice of Mt. Pleasant history, take a gander at this single-family home built 125 years ago in 1894. Its wood façade adds to its historic bucolic charm yet the inside reveals a major renovation underway. Stripped down to the studs, this house is looking for someone to come in and finish the restoration job. Though the house is no shell, as it contains two new furnaces, two central air units, and a number of other updates. Previously a residential rental, the house, located near the intersection of Mission and Broadway streets, is also zoned for commercial use.


427 S. Fancher Street: $100,000

Following a recent $15,000 price drop, this two-home listing features a main house with a smaller rental unit in a leafy backyard. While the kitchen could use an update, the house seems well-taken care of and seems just as livable as it does rentable. Located just blocks from downtown and Mission Street, whoever lives here next would hardly have to use their car come summer.


710 N. Fancher Street: $77,000

Price drop! Since we last ran our real estate watch, this home on Fancher has dropped $3,000 in asking price, from $80K to $77K. While the price has changed, the handsome woodwork and attractive location remain: The Fancher Street location allows for easy walking and biking to any number of Mt. Pleasant locations, from downtown’s mom-and-pop storefront charm to the practical necessities of Meijer.
