You'd be surprised to know that those houses, if fixed up, are nice. They are homes made in the early part of the last century--that vintage house is well made.

It's the neighborhoods that are bad. It's tough to live in an area where 3 of 4 house are boarded up and if you leave anything outside, it will be stolen or broken by morning. Vandals love vandalizing.

Obviously, the auto workers moved out of those neighborhoods long ago. The Detroit suburbs are where the middle class live.
