There are many lakes in Orion Twp and one of them might be just right for you! The lake life is a lifestyle change only for those willing to put in some extra work... Now don't get me wrong it is totally worth it! The great thing about living on a lake is there's never a dull moment. There is always something to do. You can go swimming, skiing, wake-boarding, relax, and cruise around watching the sunset.What I am talking about a little extra work when you own a lake home in Oakland County or a lake home in Lake Orion is that lake home owners have to do work pertaining to the lake.  If you have a dock that has to go in and out.  Boats have to be winterized and sometimes shrunk wrapped.  Then you have to find a place to store the boat.  Of course you have to have a place to store all the ...

That’s OK—you haven’t missed the boat yet on low mortgage rates or a healthy inventory of homes. In many ways, 2015 is a great time to buy a home, not the least of which is for certain tax breaks. Here’s how you could enjoy three significant tax benefits if you purchase a home this year. 1. Use points for even lower interest rates Deductible points are a standard tax break, but 2015 might be a good year to buy points. Interest rates have been at all-time lows, and many experts believe the only direction they can go is up. With 30-year rates hovering around 3.6%, an extra point or two can knock those l...

This story from Craig Donofrio, How Mortgage Rates Work and Why They Matter, talks about rates moving, interest percentage and getting locked in ... Most of us know mortgage rates are important—after all, the difference between just one-eighth point in interest percentage could end up costing you thousands of dollars over the length of the loan. How Do You Qualify to Buy a House   >>> All of us want a great mortgage rate. And if you’re trying to find the right time to lock-in a good one, it makes sense to know the basics about how mortgage rates move. Bond Yields Conventional mortgage rates are tied to U.S. Treasury bonds, particularly the 10-year bond.

This article in Realtor.com dated 10/12/2014, When Hiring a Contractor, Look Out For These Red Flags, discusses hard to see red flags from contractors on large projects ... Great read. He bristles at your questions about his work history. He says there’s no reason to solicit other contractor bids. His company demands payment up front, in cash. He tells you this is the way renovations get done. Maybe you don’t know any different because this is your first major home improvement project. Contractor red flags can be hard to see, especially if you’ve never hired anyone for a large project on your home. It can be intimidating to quiz an expert on something that’s new to you, and it can take time to properly vet your options. But with thousands of dollars on the line, you can’t afford not to—...

Lake Orion MI Home Sales- Market Update Unit sales are down and average and median sales prices are up. Or are they? Lake Orion, MI is recovering from a housing crisis that lasted close to a decade. Statistics show that prices started dropping in 2006. I felt it in 2005. In 2009 the amount of distressed sales (foreclosure and short sales) surpassed the amount of non-distressed sales. Distressed sales were the norm for 3 years. 3 years where Lake Orion MI had more foreclosure and short sale closings than regular old fashioned sales. And when you have that many distressed sales it affects the prices of all sales. In 2012 there was a drastic reduction in distressed sales but they still made up 39% of total sales. 23% of the sales in 2013 and thus far in 2014 (first 3 quarters) 11% of total...

Altos: Critics Are Wrong About Where Housing is Headed...latest article from RealtorMag discussing 2015 housing market that many say will be a bearish year...... The housing market is going to surge in 2015, despite the bearish predictions from many critics in the housing industry recently, according to a report to be released today by Altos Research, a housing data provider. “While we see signs of demand easing, we are significantly more bullish on housing than many of the recent headlines seem to suggest,” says Michael Simonsen, Altos CEO. “Based on our models, we're forecasting another year of home price appreciation, with a 7 percent home price increase for the year of 2015.” Altos is also projecting for-sale inventories to rise another 10 percent.
