grar: Grand Rapids, MI Marketplace ~ Year in Review - 03/06/08 08:18 PM
How did the West Michigan area compare to last year's market stats.  Check it out.  Contrary to media belief, last year (2007) was very comparable to 2006.  I look forward to an upward turn in 2008!!!

grar: Michigan Market... The Good and The Bad - 08/20/07 01:31 PM
So here's the good news.  In July, the sale of single family homes increased 8.6% over the same period last year according to the Grand Rapids Association of Realtors statistics (http://www.grar.com/).  According to the National Association of Realtors, "a forward-looking indicator based on pending sales of existing homes suggests the market may stabilize in the months ahead." (GRAR bulletin)  It truly is a great time to buy, especially if you are looking at a home purchase as an investment opportunity.
The Bad News... 
The bad news is that Michigan in particular, has a lot of homes that are either going into foreclosure or are … (0 comments)

grar: Beautiful Condo Listing - 3737 Old Elm at Fantastic Price! - 07/12/07 06:48 AM
Bailey's Grove in Kentwood is one of the more popular places to live because of the community atmosphere and the design of the community.  Not only has the builder allowed for amenities like a Club house, pool and jogging trails, but they also designed free style site condos (look like homes) and regular condominiums (homes that are connected together).
 
This condo is located at 3737 Old Elm and is a wonderful end-unit condo in beautiful Bailey's Grove, within walking distance to Club house, pool and jogging trails.  This 2 bedroom possible 3 bedroom is meticulously clean, wonderful floor plan with beautiful towering ceilings and windows.  … (0 comments)

grar: Forsalebyowner.com is it worth the price??? - 06/26/07 02:39 PM
I love the for sale by owner market! In the Grand Rapids, Michigan real estate market and the Michigan real estate market in general, trying to be a for sale by owner takes a lot of guts.  I don't mean this in a bad way.  What I mean is that it is tough enough to sell even when you are represented by a Realtor because there are so many homes for sale in the Grand Rapids marketplace.  As of the end of May, the Grand Rapids Association of Realtors board (GRAR) reported that there were over 15,000 listings from January through May … (8 comments)
