The birthplace of General Motors, Flint, Michigan is located along the Flint River and has a population of around 102,000. It is the seventh largest city in Michigan and is located roughly 60 miles away from Detroit.
Since the decline of the motor industry, Flint has struggled economically to adjust, and the population has dwindled. Many properties have been abandoned. New properties have arisen, offering lots of housing options. Many see the future of Flint in smaller neighborhoods surrounded by green land where the abandoned properties once stood. Here are some of the city's neighborhoods:
Burton: This area has several schools, including the historic Atherton Community Schoos. Many young families live in this area.
Swartz Creek: This neighborhood has a golf course on Hammerberg Road, gated homes, and a variety of reasonably low priced apartments. With one of the lowest crime rates in Flint, this is a popular destination for people moving to the city.
Flushing:A taste of the country on the Flint River, this neighborhood is still close enough to the city to have all the amenities of city living, with proximity to shops and healthcare. This is a destination for tourists who come for the sailing, but also an attractive place for families with children, as the school district here is highly regarded. A lot of green space and playground area means this is a family-friendly hub with a strong community-minded population.
Montrose:This small community is best known for its Blueberry Festival in Montrose Township, which brings volunteers from the neighborhood together to run the event. It supports Montroses vision of community strength, well being, and harmony. Property prices are higher than most parts of Flint, but this area has a lot to offer in terms of low crime rates and a highly rated school system.
Fenton:Home to the Flint Rampage semi-pro football team, which plays its home games at Atwood Stadium, Fenton has benefited from urban renewal in recent decades and now presents an attractive proposition for people moving to Flint. Low-priced homes are available here, as well as a highly regarded high school and college, Fenton appears to be on the rise.
Grand Blanc: This is a small neighborhood of around 8,000 residents. Many are attracted to this area because of the low crime rate and the good school system.
