It truely is a buyers market, and it is ashame that more people are not taking advantage of these prices.  Then again with the economy in the state it is in many are fearful to take such a step.  Thanks for sharing.

Hi Nicole- Thanks for commenting! This is a great neighborhood and everything is now selling within the FHA limits. I'm hoping since Michigan was one of the first states to start hurting, I'm hoping we hit bottom soon and prices stabilize soon!
