real estate traverse city: Market update for the Greater Traverse City, MI area - 04/20/11 06:45 AM
The news is constantly talking about the real estate market and its sad condition, as if there is but one market all across the country.  The reality, however, is this: Real estate has always been, and always shall be, a local phenomenon.  While certain aspects of the national market do have implications for local markets, each local market is defined by its own unique characteristics. So, what happens across the country is not necessarily what's happening in Traverse City, nor does the Traverse City real estate market translate nationally.
The greater Traverse City market is arguably the healthiest area in the … (1 comments)

real estate traverse city: "Sail Away From The Safe Harbor..." - 09/27/10 05:31 AM
           "Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain  
I think Mark Twain had it right when he spoke so many years ago about regrets and lost opportunities.  It's also my belief that many, many consumers will look back to 2010 and kick themselves for not taking a chance on today's real estate market.  There are so many opportunities to create lasting investments, … (0 comments)

real estate traverse city: The long and "wine-ding" road-- Center Road in Old Mission Peninsula - 08/27/10 01:29 PM
With apologies to the Beatles for my bad pun, M-37 (aka Center Road) on Old Mission Peninsula in Traverse City, is becoming known as "Wine Road."  With 7 wineries either on Center Road, or easily accessed by this two lane road that traverses the west coast of East Grand Traverse Bay, oenophiles and foodies are making this a well-travelled road.  From Black Star Farms at the base of the peninsula to Two Lads Winery near the tip, these Wineries of Old Mission Peninsula (WOMP) are creating world-class high quality wines.  My personal favorite is Brys Estates Vineyard and Winery, owned by Eileen and … (0 comments)

real estate traverse city: Top 6 Things to Consider When Buying a Bank-Owned Property - 05/19/10 03:08 AM
Many buyers have been looking at  bank-owned properties as an affordable way to realize the American Dream of homeownership.  Asking prices on bank-owned properties are generally substantially lower than market value to bring about a quick sale.  There are some incredible values available; conversely, there are a lot of less-than-stellar values, too.  As I say to many of my buyer clients, one has to sort through a lot of chaff to get to the wheat.  Or, you have to sift through a lot of muck to find the golden nugget.  Here are 6 things to consider before you make an offer on … (4 comments)

real estate traverse city: Wow! Single family home sales are up 40% over last year in Grand Traverse County, Michigan! - 04/21/10 02:10 AM
I was doing some statistical research of single family home sales in the Traverse City, MI area.  I was astonished at what I found.  Home sales in the first quarter of 2010 were up 40% in number of units sold over the same time period in 2009.  That's a huge increase, and it's not an anomoly.  I have been saying for the last few months that I am sensing a renewing consumer confidence in northwestern Michigan.  We're not out of the woods by any means yet, but one can feel a palpable excitement and level of confidence that's not been seen … (0 comments)

real estate traverse city: Home loan Interest rates are on the rise - 04/08/10 02:44 AM
Home loan interest rates are on the rise.  Rates that had hovered around 5% for the last 9 months are now at least a quarter point higher, and likely to continue to rise.  This development is hardly a surprise:  the Fed announced late last year that they would cease buying Mortgage Backed Securities at the end of March, 2010.  By purchasing mortgage backed securities, the Fed was keeping interest rates artificially low to stimulate the housing market.  But all good things must end eventually, and it appears that the days of the 5% mortgage loan are history, at least for the … (2 comments)
