Ford Cars/Trucks and My Real Estate Business   This is A topic that just seems to come up in the Detroit Metro area all the time.  What kind of car do you drive??????  Not because of a social status symbol like many might immediately think but because so many are employed here by Ford Motor Company.  In my real estate market place it is almost safe to say that everyone is either related too, knows someone, has been affected by or affiliated with Ford Motor Company in some way.  For those of you not from Michigan imagine a very one sided economy where a huge company plays a major role in every ones quality of life.  The picture you see to our right is the car I drive and yes it is a Ford.  Currently the "BIG THREE AUTO COMPANIES" (in my opinion) are the main source of income in one way o...

Livonia, MI Market Report comparing November 2010 & 2011 There were 77 homes sold in November 2010 vs 85 sold in November 2011 Average sold price was $113,994 in 2010 and $122,031 in 2011 Highest sold in 2010 was $335,000 vs $330,795 in 2011 Lowest sold was $14,100 in 2010 and $17,500 in 2011 Average days on market in 2010 was 93. In 2011 it was 85. Here's the comparison in the different price ranges: As you can see, the average price per sale is higher and the days on market are just a little bit lower in 2011 than they were in 2010. I believe that the market has stabilized a bit and that the prices should slowly and somewhat steadily rise. It's not a full blown "rebound," but it's looking better than it has for a long time!

Reason #37 to Live in Livonia, MI   There are many reasons to want to Live in Livonia, MI.   The Livonia Police are outstanding.  The schools system is one of the best in the state. I've never really heard anyone complain about the schools. A great mix of well established and newer construction subdivisions. Coventry Gardens, Burton Hollow, Francavilla and Quakertown are some of the most popular. Proximity to freeways makes traffic much better than a lot of other cities. Ever drive on Ford Rd in Canton during rush hour? Bates.   Well, Reason #37 to Live in Livonia, MI is right up there with all of those: You can rake your leaves into piles on the side of the street and the city will come and pick them up for you! It's Awesome!     Plus, I live in Livonia, too. Let me know if you have mo...

You could look high and low for Livonia, Michigan real estate but will not find a better deal.  This is a great 3 BR/2 Bath brick ranch with a finished basement and a 2 car garage. This home sits on a corner lot in a great location in the city of Livonia.  Livonia has great schools and has consistently been voted one of the best and safest cities in America (Livonia was recognized by the FBI as the second safest city in Michigan (pop. over 75,000). This is a short-sale, but the process is underway.                For more information about this home and to see additional pictures go to: Scott-Petersen.com

What is Livonia like - Livonia relocation and moving information Livonia is a town in western Wayne County that is just about a 20 -25 minute ride to downtown Detroit, to the airport, or to Ann Arbor.  With plenty of nearby freeways I-96 and I-275 you can get anywhere easily from Livonia. If you are looking for a city with a centralized downtown then Livonia may not be for you.  Livonia has several malls/shopping centers but no downtown area.  The city of Livonia is laid out in squares.  Starting from the south of the city the major roads are about every mile.  First it is Joy, Plymouth, I-96m 5 Mile, 6 Mile, 7 Mile, and then 8 Mile.  It is the same thing going east to west.  First you have Inkster, Middlebelt, Merriman, Farmington, Wayne Rd, Newburg, I-275, and Haggerty.

Bigg Burger hamburger shop in Livonia, MI There's a new(er) hamburger shop in town. It's called Bigg Burger, and I stopped there today to see what all the talk is about! They're located at 19055 Farmington Rd, Livonia, MI  48152. Just south of 7 Mile Rd. I ordered a regular single burger and small fries. The burger was great! They have a ton of FREE items that you can put on your burgers. On mine, I got dijon mustard, sprouts, grilled onions and mushrooms, tomatoes, green olives and fresh jalapeno's. How that sound? I can't wait to try the bleu cheese mayo on it next time. Small fries. Anything but small. The tasty, thin, skin-still-on them fries came in a tray and were spilling out everywhere. Didn't need to add salt or ketchup or anything to them. They were great just like they were. ...

The day has finally come to close on your Livonia home and you have to bring certain items to closing.  Otherwise you can’t close. 1.)   You must bring your driver’s license.  The title company will make a photo copy of your license.  The bank requires it.  So if you don’t have a driver’s license you will have to bring at least two pieces of identification.  Preferably a photo ID. 2.) Your water bill.  An unpaid water bill will be added to your tax bill and become a lien against your Livonia home.  So the title company wants to make sure your home is clear of any liens.  So the title company will make sure the water bill and taxes are paid at closing.  So they want the final water reading and a paid receipt or they will pay the bill and take it out of your proceeds.   I hope this helps...
