Buying a Home in Novi MI with Little or No Money Down in 2020 – For many first-time homebuyers, coming up with the down payment can be one of the biggest hurdles to buying a home in Novi MI. Even in a modest market, a traditional 20% down payment can easily amount to tens of thousands of dollars. The good news for homebuyers, with limited cash-on-hand for a down payment, is that there is a bevy of mortgage programs requiring little or no money down that are available to the general public. Search Homes for Sale in Novi MIIt’s actually a common misconception that “20% down” is required to buy a home. In today’s U.S. market it’s possible to buy a home with little or zero money down. FHA loans (3.5% down), USDA loans (0% down), VA loans (0% down),  HomeReady™ Mortgage (3% down), and Conven...

If you have never been to Metro Detroit you may be a little anxious about moving here.  It is a natural reaction.  Nervousness about moving to metro Detroit is normal.  So let me tell you a little bit about metro Detroit and SE Michigan.  It is a great place to live.  I would say that over 90% of the cities in metro Detroit are very safe.  Communities where you can walk down the street with your kids and family and not worry about gangs, muggings, or getting shot.  I would call the crime that occurs "random crime".  By that I mean kids maybe stealing from unlocked cars, or doing a little vandalism.  Or maybe a domestic dispute that ends up in assualt or death.  That is what I mean by random crime.  You won't find gang bangers or drug dealers terrorizing the neighbor.One of the best part...

Buying a home for sale in Novi, Michigan is no walk in the park. It is not entirely a seller’s market. The sellers market keeps popping one out and if you are right on time, with the right offer, you might get lucky. This is why it is important to let a realtor handle this job because not only do they have up-to-date knowledge about the real estate market but they have some savvy skills to tip the offer in your favor.When entering the bidding war, remember one thing: sellers are fickle. When they see a better offer coming their way, they abandon the buyer they are dealing with. This is why you need to be on your A-game when purchasing a house.UNDERSTANDING THE SELLERS MARKETWhen the demand for the house is higher than what is available in the market, it means you are dealing in a seller...

Novi, Michigan is an area with many condominiums for you to choose from, close to local shopping centers, main highways, restaurants and other great attractions, this area will be perfect for those who are on the go but don't want to be directly in the city. When you are looking at Novi Condos, here are two things to look out for... 1.  Shabby grounds or the complex and buildings not kept up - if the buildings need painting, or the roofs need to be redone, or the condo complex looks like it needs work  then be careful.  If there is rotting wood on the outside of the buildings then maintenance is lacking.  They may mean a financial issue.  Then that Novi Condo complex may not be for you.  The lack of maintenance shows that there is either a poor management company in charge or the Novi c...

I first want to explain what a come to Jesus meeting means.  A "come to Jesus moment" refers to a dawning, epiphany or agreement following a disagreement.  It means explaining sometimes the obvious.  As a Southeastern Michigan realtor we deal with many sellers.  So are very stead fast in what they want in a property.  Where they come up with the numbers  (sales price), sometimes I just do not know.  As a realtor you can give your opinion but more than likely the home owner is going with the agent that thinks like they do.  What I have to say is that I have had sellers who had ideas of a high selling price.  So high that I didn't think they would get it, but they did.  It surprised me even when we sold it.  So yes, sometimes over priced homes do sell to that buyer that really wants it.  ...

If you had to talk about Novi Michigan the first thing you would probably hear about the city is 12 Oaks Mall which is one of the biggest malls in the area.  People from all over Metro Detroit come to Novi to shop at the mall and all the surrounding areas.  Novi really does not have a central downtown.  Restaurants, stores, and doctors offices are all over the city along the major throughfares.  Novi also has a big convention center and a great hospital. I wanted to give you a Market update on Novi real estate and homes for sale in Oakland County MI.  There are currently 165 homes and condos for sale in Novi.  108 of them are homes and 57 condos for sale.  61 Novi homes sold in the last 30 days.The Novi real estate market is usually a very good market because of the good schools, low cr...

Game theory only sounds like it has something to do with how to win in some weekend sports outing or family board game. It’s a seriously studied logical field that mathematicians delve into. Interestingly, when you study how to develop successful negotiation tactics—Novi real estate negotiations included—you can look at them via game theory. There is a problem, though. The further you get into the subject, the more it tends to become more and more abstract. Unless you are someone who looks forward to curling up by a roaring fire with a favorite math textbook, you won’t get very far into game theory before your eyes will begin to glaze over.In real life, Novi real estate negotiations are anything but academic exercises, so I can’t recommend spending hours studying “The Prisoner’s Dilemma...

There is a row of houses in Northville, Michigan along Main Street. It is in the older part of town. In fact, the whole town has a lot of old architecture in it. A lot of these old buildings have been turned into businesses. This has attracted a wide range of new professions including chiropractic offices, legal offices, health and nutrition practitioners and even hair salons.These buildings offer a quaint, home style experience for the customer. The businesses are able to utilize these existing structures and partake in the cities unique culture. Northville, Michigan is a blend of the old and the new. This is one area of Michigan that has not conformed to the modern age with new concrete structures. They have not bulldozed down the unique aspects that made the city so interesting.The o...
