Ypsilanti Real Estate Listings and Information

Ypsilanti

Surely you’ve heard the phrase “Everything but the kitchen sink.”

Ypsilanti (or “Ypsi” as locals call it) offers so many shopping, dining, arts and educational options that there truly is something for everyone here.

And as home to one of the nation’s oldest architectural salvage companies --Materials Unlimited, Ypsilanti can offer the kitchen sink as well (And it probably came from an Art Deco mansion).

Speaking of salvage, local antiquers take to Ypsilanti’s “Trash to Treasure Trail” which features some of the best reuse centers in the area. These are great spots to unearth antiques and collectibles from around the world as well as right here in Michigan.

Some of the trail’s stops include: YPSF Retail Shop, Value World, Materials Unlimited (which made Hour Detroit’s “Best of Detroit” list) as well as TreasureMart, Recycle Ann Arbor, and the Scrap Box .

Ypsi’s architecture is also a study in variety. Building styles include Italianate, Gothic Revival and Second Empire. Housing and rental options run the gambit from Mansions overlooking the river to tidy lofts overlooking Depot Town.

Depot Town is one of Ypsi’s two historic districts and is populated by some of its original buildings from the 1800’s. This area is named for the Ypsilanti Train Depot that connected the city to Detroit.

Depot town is home to some of Michigan’s favorite (and most attended) festivals including
the Michigan Summer Beerfest, The Michigan Elvisfest, and the Ypsilanti Heritage Festival.

As a college town, Ypsilanti is a bustling mix of age, race, and religious backgrounds. Eastern Michigan University, with a student body of roughly 23,000, is a major employer and influencer on the surrounding community.

The Ypsilanti public school system consists of nine public schools populated by roughly 4,000 students. There are also several institutions of higher learning including Cleary College, Washtenaw Community College and nearby University of Michigan and Concordia University in Ann Arbor.

While urban, Ypsi also has plenty of green spaces. There are 23000+ acres of space for biking, hiking, fishing or just enjoying nature. Some of the public parks include Riverside park, Candy cane Park, Frog Island Park, Rivers Edge Park, Prospect Park.

The Rutherford Municipal Pool is located at the eastern end of Recreation Park. Each summer residents enjoy swimming as well as occasional activities like water polo and CPR training.

Dining in Ypsi is eclectic and fun. Local faves include the Bomber Restaurant (home to a breakfast so gluttonous it was featured on the FoodNetwork’s “Top 5 Over Indulgences”) Red Rock BBQ, Beezy’s or Sidetrack Bar & Grill (serving one of GQ magazine’s “Top 20 Best Burgers in the USA”).

Shoppers can find their inner child at The Rocket or Model Cave Hobby Shop, enjoy Michigan-made products from the MI General Store, or see what’s new (or old as the case may be) at Salt City Antiques. Ypsilanti is proud of the fact that 95% of the businesses in Downtown and Depot Town are independently owned.

The city is known also known for its thriving arts community. The Riverside Arts Center, which features a theater, art gallery and dance studio, is a hub for local artists and performers.

Ypsilanti is a unique place with an urban vibe strongly connected to the city’s history and heritage.
