The rental real estate market in Detroit is “wacky” right now, which is just the thing real estate investors want to hear. Demand for single-family rentals is skyrocketing, and the median price of a single-family home in Detroit is well below $100K, offering an amazing opportunity for rental property with solid yields and cash flow.

With high-end retailers like Whole Foods moving in, and high tech stalwarts like Microsoft, Google, and Pinterest opening offices, Detroit’s future is looking bright. That’s good news for the housing industry and good news for investors.
