Detroit's English Village Hosts Home Tour

DETROIT (WWJ) - Detroit's East English Village is inviting everyone who is interested in buying a  home to take part in their second annual home tour this Sunday.

East English Village President Bill Barlage said the investment opportunities are beyond belief.

"From the standpoint of value and return, sort of an ROI if you look at it as a business proposition, this is the place to be, young or old. If you look around, we've got Tudors, colonials, Cape Cods, bungalows, in the most positive force in terms of neighborhood," Barlage said.

The tour will highlight foreclosed homes purchased by the Detroit Land Bank Authority with Neighborhood Stabilization Program funds, including a walk-through of four DLBA owned properties and one renovated home.

The tour check-in will be located at 4240 Kensington. Shuttle buses will be available,  but for those interested in walking, biking or driving the three-quarter square mile neighborhood, a printed guide will direct visitors from house to house and provide other neighborhood information.

A listing of homes for sale in the neighborhood and their prospective realtors will be included in tour materials so that individuals can arrange to view the  properties after the tour day.

The tour takes place Sunday, Oct. 9 from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. For more information, visit
