What's goin' on - Milford, Michigan - 06/28/10 08:10 PM
Hey, dad; what's goin' on? I always get that opening line when my son calls, which I take to be sort of the "Hey, how are you?" line of his younger generation. So I thought I'd post a few answers to that question over the next few days about what's goin' on in the real estate markets that I tend to focus upon and cover - starting with the Milford market.
What's going in on in Milford (Township and Village) is a continuation of the loss of value that we've been seeing for some time. There was a spike upward (0 comments)
You make me sick! - 06/22/10 05:39 PM
No I'm not talking about you! I'm talking about your home.
Here's a link to a recent story on the IconCulture Web site that talks about how some people are actually made ill from toxins that are commonly in homes these days. There are lots and lots of things that we bring into our homes that can make us sick,from new carpeting to common household cleaning items.
The Iconoculture story points to a Web site called HealthyDwellings.com that has information about potential home health threats. The Healthy Dwellings folks sell a service to come into your home and survey (3 comments)
Milford Michigan Area Stats Updated - 06/13/10 05:56 PM
I've updated the local sold statistics for this week, so now you can go see what's selling in the area. Are sales down a bit compared to last year? How are houses in the $200-300K price band selling in this area? Is South Lyon selling better than Milford right5 now? How about Highland?The Answers to those questions and more can be found in the Real Estate Statistics sections of my Web sites - http://www.movetomilford.com/ and http://www.themilfordteam.com/ visit either one to find out the answers. Those Web sites are the only places locally where you can find all of the latest sales (1 comments)
It's a give and take world... - 06/11/10 08:21 AM
"Blessed are those who can give without remembering and take without forgetting." (Elizabeth Bibesco) from the Jack's Winning Words blog, one of my favorites blogs. Can you do that? Too often we get so focused upon ourselves and our needs that we forget the needs of others. Real estate can be a business that feeds that tendency, since it sometimes feels like an everybody for themselves environment. The people who are successful in this business seem to have a common trait - they take the time to find ways to give back to their communties and to fellow Realtors. They are also (1 comments)
My world and welcome to it... - 06/10/10 09:21 PM
As I have done numerous times before, it is time to report on the mix in the local market here in my little corner of the world. Actually this is a report for a far bigger area than I normally concentrate upon, since these statistics were provided by my company - Real Estate One - and reflect the entire southeastern Michigan market. The chart shows that almost 80% of the local market is still being drive by distressed sales or sale (leases really) that were caused mainly by distress (displaced homeowners looking for places to live after being foreclosed). In this (2 comments)
Where to go to find the answers... - 06/09/10 07:16 AM
How do sales this year compare to past years? Where can you find out what's sold in your area? What's the trend, if any in sales of distressed houses - foreclosed or short sales? What's the average percentage of sale price as compared to asking price min my area? How do the current SEV values equate to the sale prices in this area? What's the average cost per square foot of homes that have sold in this area?
Those are all valid questions to seek answer s to, if you are looking for a house or if you plan to (1 comments)
