Detroit’s University District markets to families that homeschool their children, 29 April 2007, Detroit Free Press, Detroit, Michigan The typical home in Detroit’s historic University District offers three stories, spacious basements and finished attics and maids quarters. Perfect places, community leaders say, to live while homeschooling children.
Ample space for classrooms — offices or play areas — is not an issue here.
And neither is cost.
Today, in a unique marketing approach designed to move unsold homes by pitching the district as a haven for families that homeschool, the owners of more than 25 of the 68 homes that are listed for sale will open their doors to prospective buyers.
The University District Open House Day highlights the architecture, open space and cultural and economic diversity that make the neighborhood ideal for living, investing and homeschooling.
