I was inspired to write this post as I was driving around recently with my car windows wide open and enjoying our Indian Summer here in Michigan.  I personally have not thought the regular summer was over yet, besides the kids being back to school.  We've had a week or two of cold spells (and even a frost advisory) but other than that the weather has been gorgeous.  Michigan tourism has benefited greatly from this outstanding summer.  I recently visited Grandville's Millennium Park, (owned by the people, operated by Kent County) with some friends for a birthday celebration and a fun, relaxing picnic.  We had the chance to enjoy each other's company and watch all the people at the beach and kids playing in the water park.   This park is almost 1500 acres of re-claimed greenspace (it was...

My client asked about a security system.My response was this: Check with your insurance agent on saving you money there, I haven't seen any difference when I show homes in a suberb like Wyoming or Grandville.  Most people don't care one way or the other if it has a security system.  You might consider just get the little security system sticker because that is supposed to deter unwanted visitors.Prevent Break-InsMaking your home safer against burglary doesn't have to cost a bundle of money. According to the National Council on Crime Prevention, "effective home security starts with properly locked doors and windows and visible, well-lighted entryways".  From http://www.homeimprovementideas.net/articles/three-steps-to-a-more-secure-home.html  Check out my blog at http://www.realtoringrand...

It's another official sign of spring in West Michigan, when the local Farmer's Markets begin opening up in the area.  The farmer's bring their fresh-picked fruits & vegetables, gardeners bring their gorgeous flowers and locals bring their home-made foods.  Grandville's Market opened officially today and runs every Tuesday. Fresh Asparagus (roasted on the grill with a little EVOO,mmmm!) and rhubarb from Travest Farms in Hudsonville, homemade jerky by Barb Terpstra and her husband out of Marne, flowers galore!! by local Grandville gardeners, and fresh bread (no preservatives) from The Great Bread Co. out of Allendale being sold to a happy customer by Kay Stoneburner are what you'll find in store plus much, much more!So stop by here or go out and support your local farmer's market!!

So I have done it.  My wife and I have bought a new house and we are scheduled to close on the 26th of March.  So what does that mean and why do you care?  The main reason is that we are experiencing what every other home buyer in the Grand Rapids area has experienced.  Anticipation, excitement and dread.  We haven't moved in 3 years, do you know what can happen in 3 years?  Yes, you are right, accumulation of "stuff".  I remember when we moved from our first home in Grand Rapids, to this home in Grandville.  We where only there for 1 year, and I was amazed at the massive amounts of "stuff" we gathered just in that short time of home ownership.  Now we have been here in Grandville 3 years in a great home.  Several closets, a walk in pantry, 3 different living areas that had to be filled...

So I may have mentioned that my wife and I bought a new home we close the end of the month.  In the buyers market we are in for the Grand Rapids Real Estate Market, I couldn't get out of my home what value I place on it.  What am I going to do?  We put it for rent in Grandville.  Over 2000 sq ft of living space with 3 bedrooms 2 1/2 baths and an attached 2 stall garage with fenced backyard.  We are asking $1350 per month. A great suburb of Grand Rapids, MI, close to the Rivertown Mall and most major restaurants in Grandville.  I have been trying to rent it out hardcore now 3 days.  I listed my home on GRAR (the Grand Rapids Association of Realtors) also Craigslist.com and Rent.com.  I have had more calls and inquiries into my home for rent in the past 3 days than I have had on my 7 list...

First start off with 263 homes for sale in Grandville Schools. For the month of February in Grandville 31 homes for sale expired. 21 Grandville Homes went pending or a real estate agent found their buyer a home in Grandville. 19 homes actually closed so the seller sold the home in Grandville and hopefully the buyer is happy with the new home in Grandville, MI.  That is quite a few homes sold in one month. 40 homes off the market, but 263 other homes for sale in Grandville Schools.  The average sold price for a home in Grandville was $166,200.  A little bit higher than the average price for a Grand Rapids home. so 263 divided by 40 homes means that there is still a 6.5 month supply of homes for sale in Grandville.  That makes it a buyers market for the Grandville real estate market.Brows...

This is my first week of Blogging and I've learned many interesting things and read several really cool blogs.Thank you so much to Maureen McCabe for her welcome and invitation to the Welcome Group.  It was nice to receive posts and encouragements and information on other posts to visit.  Our Broker had a very interesting article entitled "Unmasking the Face of the Foreclosure Crisis" which generated quite a few responses.  This is a very prevelent issue in Michigan - I can't even count the number of foreclosed homes I've shown in the short time I've been a Realtor.  We're dealing with so many short sales, also, so this article is a worthy read.  John Novak, who also welcomed me, had a nice article about courage that I enjoyed, and another about cold- calling which scares me to pieces s...
