Affordable Alternatives for New Construction in Detroit, MI

Because of the rapid growth of cities around the U.S., providing affordable housing for residents has become a problem. Rent has become expensive, forcing people to spend more than half of their salaries on housing. Many contractors in Detroit have started to focus on creating affordable housing for both new and existing residents that offer access to public transport and other essentials. This dedication to building affordable housing is beginning to show on a national scale. According to Forbes, Michigan is listed as one of the most affordable places to buy a house in America. Learn more about affordable alternatives to new construction throughout Detroit.


Condos aren't just an excellent option for first-time homebuyers; they can be a wise investment no matter what stage of life you're at. Often priced lower than traditional forms of housing, condos offer residents extra amenities without worrying about yard work and other maintenance. Robertson Homes is constructing mid-rise and detached condos throughout Metro Detroit that can be more affordable than other new construction in the Motor City.


Like condos, townhomes tend to be a more affordable option than other new construction around Detroit. Townhomes often offer more space than condos and sometimes even have multiple floors. Many people feel that townhomes are like a combination of condos and detached single-family homes because you are able to modify your interior while still living in a community where all exterior maintenance and upkeep are taken care of. Robertson Homes has built many move-in-ready townhomes throughout Detroit with a lower price tag than other new builds in the area.

Buying a Home Can Be Cheaper Than Renting

According to Axios, owning a median-priced home is more affordable than the average rent on a three-bedroom property in 58% of the U.S. This is especially true in suburban areas right outside of Detroit. While purchasing a home might be intimidating at first, once your home is purchased, appreciation helps to build equity in your property, thus making your initial investment worth it. Robertson Homes offers multiple homes around Metro Detroit that may provide you with lower expenses than renting.
