The area where Aretha Franklin’s house was is an island in the middle of a very bad section of Detroit. The neighborhood is historic, but leave the neighborhood and it’s another world. Also, that is a 1920’s area house. If it hasn’t been very well maintained, you’re looking at big money to have it rehabilitated.
