"Cheap" rent in Detroit is more like $300 to $500/month.

not downtown Brandon48202! Downtown is prob just as expensive as any suburban locations and prob. even more in many cases. There has to be a web site out there that has places listed according to the monthly rent.

The Kales can be had for under 900 (teeny little loft) but I wouldn't recommend it. The on-site staff are really friendly and helpful but have no power at all to do anything. The headquarters tried to cash one of our rent checks twice last year and even after providing a copy of the cancelled check, our statement, and a letter from our bank, they insisted we pay again (obviously we didn't). We moved out December 1st and just got our security deposit back a few weeks ago after a bunch of haggling with the main office. Both situations felt like something shady was going on down there at the headquarters.
The building and parking is great but STAY AWAY FROM THE KALES!

I used to live in the Fyfe (adams and Woodward) for $700/month for a one bedroom and a closed off den (about 800 sq. ft.), that was in 2001-2002. Wow time flies.

Some of the cheapest rent in the CBD will be at the Milner, the Park Avenue House (where the Town Pump Tavern is), and the Leland. They all have tenants who rent month-to-month.
The Fyfe (where I live) is pretty inexpensive, and the same goes for the Park Apts on Adams and the Town Apartments near the new MGM casino. The Boydell Building in Bricktown and a couple of the buildings near Harmonie Park may have cheap rent.

I have a friend that is currently looking at the Fyfe. Is there a way I can put her in touch with you?

In 1994, I lived in a two bedroom two bathroom apartment at the Leland Hotel/Ramada at Cass & Bagley. Furnished and all utilities were included for $425 a month. Divided by the 3 of us living there, I was just about living there free.

The Leland is pretty low brow low rent. How is the Fyfe? Is it clean and how is the security? I'm curious what the best you can get in the 500-600 range...
I know people who moved out of the Trolley because the security took a dive a couple years ago and they got broken into.

Oh. And Park Avenue is hellhole-esque too. I've witnessed many a roach while visiting people there... Good number of junkheads ala the Leland.
