Red Barn Village Sub in Oxford Township consists of 123 home sites just south of Drahner Rd, west of M-24. Red Barn is an older sub- houses built in the early to mid sixties, mostly ranches and tri-levels, with Lake Orion schools. The neighborhood also features community well and sewer, good sized yards- fences allowed. Excellent location with easy access to both downtown Oxford and Lake Orion.

Some of the area amenities include:

2009 was a rough year for Red Barn Village. 7 houses sold ranging from $50,000 to $90,210 (after subtracting seller concessions). 6 or those 7 houses were foreclosures and the other sale was a short sale.

As of October 23 there were 7 closings in Red Barn ranging in price from $46,500-$77,600- all foreclosures.

This is a great price point for the person who wants a house but with a reasonable payment (first time home buyer, starting over, retirement, down sizing, etc.). Or a terrific rental prospect. A typical house in this neighborhood, in good condition, would probably rent for around $900 or so per month.
