Detroit Properties to be featured on HGTV, Fine Living

Ever wonder how Detroit housing measures up to the rest of the country? Here's your chance to find out.

The wildly-successful
"What You Get for the Money" - a cable program that looks at how much home a set amount of money gets in six different parts of the country - shines a spotlight on the D three times during the next week and a half when it compares Detroit homes at the $300,000, $700,000 and $900,000 price levels to similarly-priced homes in other cities.

"What You Get for the Money" episodes featuring Detroit homes will air on HGTV on February 15, and on Fine Living on February 16 and February 23.

Sound interesting? Here's the nitty-gritty:

*On February 15, tune into HGTV at 10:30 pm and follow show host Mike Seagal across the country as he visits Omaha, East Hampton, San Diego, Baltimore, Detroit and Reno to find out just how much house a $900,000 budget affords in varying parts of the U.S. Sabra Sanzotta, Detroit real estate agent and owner of The Loft Warehouse, will present the Motor City's $900,000 property - a mansion in the city's historic Boston-Edison neighborhood. Night owls can tune in at 2:30 for a repeat showing of this episode.

*On February 16 at 8 pm and 11 pm, look for Sanzotta again as she showcases another Detroit property on Fine Living, this time at a lower price point. See how Detroit's $300,000 residence measures up against homes in the same price range located in Portland, Chicago, Philadelphia, Denver and Seattle.

*On February 23, viewers tuning into Fine Living at 8 pm or 11 pm can get a sneak-peek of what $700,000 will get them in a home. Along with residences with a $700,000 price tag in Portland, Harlem, Omaha, Pittsburgh and Lone Tree, Colorado, Detroit real estate agent Ilene Wolf will showcase a unit at The Lofts at Rivertown, the former Frederick Stearns pharmaceutical lab that was redeveloped into 175 luxury lofts in 2002.
