The July data has just been published by our MultiList System (MLS), RealComp II, Ltd.  We’re seeing a continuation of trends from earlier in the year, namely, fewer listings, slightly increased sales numbers and a shorter time on the market. First, listings.  Year To Date (YTD) for 2011, we’re 11% below 2010 levels, with 3041 this year compared to 3404 last year.  Short sales listings are down a significant 28% comparing July 2011 to July 2010 (252 in 2011 vs. 352 in 2010).  Sales of residential units (detached homes and condominiums) are up 7%, or 237 in 2011 vs. 221 in 2010.  Pending sales are also up 23% from last year. July 2011 showed the highest average ($173,608) and median ($153,750) sales prices of the year, and both of those indicators are nominally above 2010’s performance. ...

Using data from our Multiple Listing Service (MLS), Realcomp II, Ltd., we are seeing a continuation of the existing trend of lower inventory and shorter time on the market. Through May, and comparing years 2009, 2010 and 2011, inventory has gone from a year to date (YTD) figure of 2840 in 2009 to 2455 in 2010 and the current 2150 for 2011. That's a drop of just over 24% in the last two years. Both the total number of residential sales and the total sales volume (price of all sales combined) is lower in 2011 vs. 2010, almost 9% lower for number of sales and 6.5% lower in sales volume, but the average sales price is up about 2% for 2011 and the median sales price is just slightly up over 2010 as well. That's likely an indication of higher overall prices on a per sales basis. Days on the m...

I love this time of year. I have a serviceberry tree in my courtyard and when the berries ripen, an amazing array of large and small birds appear.  I just replaced a large bird feeder that hangs from the tree with one designed for smaller birds.  For the last few days I've noticed a chipmunk eating the seed that the birds spill onto the ground.  As I sat on the porch (with a camera, should an interesting bird happen by), I noticed a chipmunk scurry up the tree trunk and find a comfortable perch.  As you can see, he's helping himself to the ripe berries.  I watched him feast for about 20 minutes, sitting about 5 feet above ground level.

Here are a few photos I took of Baetcke Lake in Genoa Township in 2010 when I was out showing some Livingston County Lakefront homes. Baetcke Lake is just a small Lake (only 48 acres)                                             There are not many homes on the lake though there is one good sized home that you can see below.                                I don't think it is an all sports lake as it is too small.  Baetcke Lake is a private lake                           Search Livingston County lakefront homes for sale Pinckney chain of lakes real estate (Portage chain of Lakes) Woodland Lake homes, Brighton MI Bruin Lake properties Livingston County MI Oakland County Lakefront home selling tips If you are looking to sell your home on Baetcke Lake or any Livingston County Lake give me a c...
