The following is a monthly market analysis for Oakland County Michigan Real Estate. It compares only residential homes sold in May 2009 with April 2009 to determine the # of homes sold for the month and the increase/decrease in median sold price. It shows all homes sold then private owned vs. Bank Owned/HUD. In the latter part of 2008, Realtors were required to categorize ownership status so figures are not accurate for bank owned in earlier months and not calculated. Oakland County Market Analysis for Homes Sold also compares year ending May 2008 to May 2009. Since Pontiac & Southfield have been (0 comments)
With two great events in Oakland County Michigan, I split my time between the Berkley Michigan Art Bash and the Royal Oak Clay Glass & Metal Show. There were around 65 artists at the 8th Annual Art Bash in downtown Berkley and my favorite part of the art fair were two budding artists at the “spin art” booth. This is the type of activity that always attracted me at similar fairs as a younger person and I probably would rather have been spinning that shooting video. However these two girls captured my interest with their creativity and persistence in getting (0 comments)
The Clay Glass and Metal Street Fair is one of Royal Oak's Chamber of Commerce most popular annual events! I attended the Royal Oak in Bloom and did not want to pass up another opportunity to stroll downtown Royal Oak. Between the Clay Glass & Metal Show, Royal Oak in Bloom and the Antique & garage sale, an estimated 80,000 visitors come to the city each year. This show is dedicated to artwork created with heat and this was the first year that metal was included.
The event also featured live demos, children's activities, entertainment and food (of course). (0 comments)

Working within a few blocks of Birmingham Michigan, I often attend the events in Shain Park. Days before the 46th annual Village Fair, I was downtown and saw the Ferris wheel going up. Being a favorite of mine growing up on the west side of Michigan, my attendance was almost guaranteed. I was going out of town the weekend of the Village Fair but it opened on a Thursday and it was my only chance. I worked until 8PM and it looked a bit like rain but I couldn’t resist stopping by. And sure enough, you will see my (0 comments)
I grew up in the small town of Otsego in Western Michigan and the Memorial Day parade was a big event. Family and friends congregated at my parents for a 2-block walk with lawn chairs to reserve our corner where we knew many people including those in the parade itself. Growing up, I was in the parade a few times myself. Over the years I have often returned to find my mom and dad hosting a post parade gathering with a pot of coffee and rolls from the local bakery.
While parades and memories are fun, Memorial Day (2 comments)
The Birmingham Bloomfield Art Center held their annual fine art festival in Shain Park over Mother’s Day. Called “Art Birmingham”, the juried art event featured about 180 artists from all over the U.S. in a variety of media. There were two great local events that weekend so after touring Royal Oak in Bloom, I drove the short distance to downtown Birmingham Michigan to capture the art and music of another great community in Oakland County Michigan.
