ann arbor real estate: Ann Arbor Real Estate Market - Back to Basics - 01/26/10 10:57 AM
Ann Arbor Real Estate Market - Getting Back to Basics seems to be what is making the difference.
Do you stick to a routine and just do what is comfortable?  Well, probably if it works, right?  Well, the past few years have been such an unprecedented, unpredictable time that there hasn't been that one thing that seemed to get the job done.  Having to mix it up a bit and try new things has been key for me.  I had to get back to the basics. 
When the Ann Arbor Real Estate Market was on fire so was my phone.  I had the calls coming … (0 comments)

ann arbor real estate: Are Banks Harming Themselves By Being In The Real Estate Market? - 01/24/10 06:52 AM
Are Banks Harming Themselves by Being in The Real Estate Market?  Or, more importantly, are they harming the Real Estate Market?
At last week's sales meeting I announced an upcoming listing I have.  It is located in an newer subdivision just outside of Ann Arbor.  The sub has some homes on the market but not an overabundance.  There are a few homes that are either bank owned or short sales.  A couple of them even have SOLD signs on them that have been there since Fall but have not closed yet. 
One of my colleagues contacted me about my upcoming listing.  … (3 comments)

ann arbor real estate: Location is Key - Burns Park, Ann Arbor Real Estate - 01/17/10 06:28 AM
Location is key - Burns Park, still a highly desired area in the Ann Arbor Real Estate market.  I held an Open House today at 1241 Olivia, a typical 1920 built house backing the Burns Park Elementary School.  The house has just over 1600 square feet and is priced at $296,000.00.  Last Sunday there was a large number of visitors and this week was more of the same.  All of the visitors talked of the Burns Park area location.  Some of those attending the Open House were neighbors who also could not say enough about what a wonderful neighborhood Burns Park … (0 comments)

ann arbor real estate: Positive Signs in the Ann Arbor Real Estate Market - 01/14/10 05:18 AM
Positive signs in the real estate market are being seen on this 14th day of the New Year. 
I went on a new listing appointment this morning and ran the numbers for a past client.  He will be able to sell his home, which was purchased two years ago as a foreclosure, for a $20 - $30,000.00 profit.  He is selling in order to move closer to work and should still be able to get a good deal on the buying end. 
I also have formed a relationship with a property investor who owns and manages many Ann Arbor rental properties and … (2 comments)

ann arbor real estate: Is the Ann Arbor Real Estate Market Recovering? - 01/12/10 06:35 AM
Is the Ann Arbor Real Estate Market recovering?  That seems to be the million dollar question.  Possibly, is my answer. 
It appears that the home sales under $250,000.00 are in recovery mode or even somewhat robust.  The over $350,000.00 price range still seems slow and somewhat in oversupply.  It is not out of the question to think we will see an Ann Arbor Real Estate Market recovery in 2010. 
If the University of Michigan continues to staff the recently acquired "old Pfizer" facility we will most likely see job growth in Ann Arbor in 2010 which will add to any Ann Arbor … (1 comments)
