  YES!  I've been saying it for quite a while now, even as far back as last summer when it started to shift.      It's TRUE!  St. Clair Shores is definitely a SELLERS MARKET right now.    With a lack of inventory all over Macomb County, buyers are anxiously waiting for the right house to come on the market. There are currently only 117 homes on the market in St. Clair Shores.     Looking back at last years statistics from March 1, 2012 to March 27,2012 compared to this month ...... and the average sale price is up almost 16% with the median sales price up almost 22% in St. Clair Shores!!        Want to know what your St. Clair Shores Home is Worth in Today's Market?

It's almost spring time! Here's a look at the St. Clair Shores real estate market for single family homes for the month of February. Closings were down from last month, with only 50 compared to 69 in January, but the good news for sellers is the inventory remains low, making this a Sellers Market and prices are slowly starting to climb back up. The current absorption rate for the past 6 months shows jus a 1.6 months supply of homes on the market. Who would have thought a few years ago that we'd be saying the words Sellers Market in St. Clair Shores or anywhere in Macomb County.           February Statistics High Sale Price $310,000 Low Sale Price $22,059 Average Sale Price $74,745 Median Sale Price $73,950 Average Days on Market 52 Median Days on Market 27   Of the 50 closings in Februa...

  Happy Friday & Happy March 1st! I'm so ready for warmer weather. Looking forward to spring & summer! I should have my St. Clair Shores real estate market report ready by the first part of next week. Still waiting on some final numbers to come in from those end of the month closings!     At a quick glance I can tell you this, inventory remains low, which is good news for sellers. The nice listings that are priced right are selling quickly, many times with multiple offers for asking price or above.    Buyers, although your choices are limited due to lower inventory there's still good news for you. The interest rates are still at all time record lows. Great opportunity to get a 30 year fixed at low, low rates. Don't forget, Michigan First Time Home Buyers can apply for a $3,000 grant to ...

  Word is that the much anticipated Butter Run Saloon is opening Monday, November 17th according to their facebook page.    The Butter Run Saloon is located on the corner of 11 mile and Harper, where the old Grissoms Pub used to be. They have completely redone the whole building. The outside facade looks amazing and the interior pictures I've seen look terrific as well. I'm looking forward to stopping in one day for a cold one!   So, I'm sure many are wondering why call a saloon Butter Run? Well there's actually a really cool story behind it, you can read the Legend of Butter Run here.    Best of Luck to the owners of Butter Run Saloon and Welcome to St. Clair Shores! Is it time for a Butter Run?   If you would like information on St. Clair Shores Real Estate or the surrounding Macomb C...

Found a job! Headed to Motown to win that ring! I think everyone has heard by now, the Detroit Tigers signed outfielder Torii Hunter to a 2 year deal! With the Tigers coming so close to a World Championship, this signing is huge and everyone's already excited for next season!   Earlier today, Torii Hunter tweeted: What's up Tiger fans? Just landed in Detroit looking for a place to stay. Any suggestion? Here are a couple of suggestions Mr. Hunter. How about the Grosse Pointes or St. Clair Shores? Both are just a short drive to Comerica Park and offer you access to beautiful Lake St. Clair.   Regardless of where you decide to stay in The D I know Tiger fans are very happy to have you here! And if you are interested in living near Lake St. Clair be it in St. Clair Shores or one of the Gro...
