From what I know of Flint, it's pretty poor and dumpy.
Rent "Roger and Me" and see how GM screwed the city way back when.
It's sort of a forgotton city. Once on the up and coming and now just trashed.
No offense if you live there. That's just my take on it.
Used to hang at "The Bank" back in the day (87 to 90).
Do people still like living there ???
I'm sure the real estate market there is very very soft and you could probably get a massive house for under 100K easily.

and that girl on American Idol is from there I think.
What am I gonna do when the aliens come?​

From what i know Flint is run down big time, a lot of businesses shut down, and the city started to look like this

If youre asking this bc youre interested in moving there or something i wouldnt suggest it. i would check into Fenton. its about 25 minutes or so from Flint.

please don't.

haha, some parts look like those pictures. a lot of parts look like that. my neighborhood isn't bad, though. it looks like the average neighborhood in a city. there are a few things downtown now, but that area's mainly for government workers and students/faculty at um-flint. the east court/college-cultural area and the larger homes off ofmiller road are probably one of the best housing deals around if you are like me and have serious qualms with suburban life.

a kid in the flint school system, but there are some decent private schools in the area. it's not as bad as its portrayal in roger & me, but it's not on anybody's top 10 list of places to be/live.

^ No matter what kind of renaissance is going on in Flint, the fact remains if you are thinking of buying there it is a poor investment. I'm not saying you are going ot lose money, but there are a million developing neighborhoods with in 30/45 minutes of Flint that are actually going to yeild some kind of return if you ever wish to sell... Not to metion you will be able to sell.

. . . i think i said that. it's more a place to settle if it fits your lifestyle, definitely not a place for investment. there are definitely places to buy/build around that will turn a profit in a few years, although with the job situation becoming worse across the state, i would hesitate before buying a house almost anywhere in michigan if profit were the only thing on my mind.
