Starting to look for a place to live in/near Warren, MI -- need some advice

Starting Monday I'll be working in Warren (near 11 mile and Schoenherr), and I'm trying to figure out where to live that's within a ~20 minute drive.

I'm pretty sure I want an apartment...I don't want to have to deal with a yard or any stuff to do with a house right now. 2 bedrooms would be nice, but I don't need it.

Obviously I don't want to live in a **** hole. I'm guessing paying $600-800/month will be about average? The cheaper the better though.

That's OK. As a first time home buyer you don't have to put gobs of money down (although it helps).

Not sure if its feasible and/or the relationship you have with your family but sometimes grandparents / parents are willing to kick down a few K to get you going when its something like buying your first house.

On a side note, holy crap I wish there were livable houses here for under 100k.


In many cases, I couldn't even buy a lot in the sticks with no improvements for less than 50k.
Maybe ask Gerald who he used to buy his place.

My mom is a Real Estate agent and I've heard of some pretty crappy agents out there. Just like anything a good referral is worth its weight in gold.

Good luck dude, I wish CA prices were anything close to something I could afford right out of school. Oh well, I guess once you're in then its all relative.
