With fuel prices at the "you've got to be kidding" level, and temperatures hovering near 100º, shopping for a home can be expensive and exhausting. Luckily, you can really narrow down your choices to a few select properties by browsing listings on the internet.

We'll get you started right here on Patch with these five properties in Farmington Hills, West Bloomfield and Bloomfield Hills. We've chosen properties that are in close proximity to one another in each area; other than that, it's a mixed bag this week. Some attached condos, some detached condos, and some single family homes.
