The Great Condo Search Continued

Thanks to Detroit Metroblog readers I have learned how to go about getting a place in Detroit the proper way. I am pleased to say that Mr. Gideon Pfeffer of Premier Mortgage Funding [248-797-5748] has been most helpful in getting me through the painless and very helpful pre-approval process. Now the fun part begins: shopping for a place and making sure that I have enough to furnish it as well. I hope that when it comes time, I will be able to drop my furniture and electronics dollars in the city instead of having to head out to the suburbs. How does Detroit furnish its homes?

    A great way to do that is to visit the Salvation Army (type) stores, and find the basics. But if you have pet allergies, then stay away from cloth furniture. ALSO, lots of cities have “big Trash Day” – that’s when people are allowed to toss out huge things that they don’t need anymore. There’s usually lots of chairs, tables, all sorts of stuff – for free. Just call around the towns (sanitation departments) downriver (Wyandotte has one) to find out when, and find a friend with a pick-up truck.

    We bought some cool furniture from Cafe de Troit. Yes, they have coffee and furniture.

    You BOUGHT Lee’s furniture? Wow, am I behind…

    Congrats, Mollika! Gideon was the right guy to go to.

    Thanks for the suggestions. I must have missed the furniture when I was at Cafe de Troit last. I’m planning a trek to an IKEA at some point since the one in Canton will not open till Summer 2006.
