Grand Rapids, MI: The last couple of days have been a breath of fresh air as winter took a temporary holiday break and the sun dazzled us with its glorious warmth. Well, let's qualify warmth, no it's not beach weather, but the combination of sunshine, no snow and no blood curdling wind gusts is the winter-time equivalent here in Grand Rapids, MI.
For real estate enthusiasts, this is good news. Although, the lure of over crowded shopping centers cannot be resisted by some, there are many people who are tired of cabin fever and can't pass by the opportunity to peak at a home that's Open for an Open House. Being "couped up" in your own house because of wintery conditions makes the lure of seeing someone elses home that much more appealing.
The Grand Rapids Multiple Listing Service now offers potential New Homeowners a nifty tool to assist in making the search for the perfect Open House as efficient as possible. You can now be notified about when a home that you would like to see is being held Open as opposed to having to check periodically and hope you get the right week. Your Realtor can set this up for you very easily and this will ensure that you never miss a great opportunity to tour the home of your choice again. Fortunately, this notification system is totally unaffected by winter conditions and seems to work at optimal levels most of the time!
If you would like to have this set up for you, simply e-mail me with your e-mail address and a brief description of the type of home and area you would prefer. There is no obligation. It's just another way we serve our clients and work to make their lives easier.
