Is it Garden City, Livonia, Plymouth, or what community in Wayne County is the best community for you and your family.   Everybody has there own criteria and as a Michigan relocation agent I like to hear from my relocation buyers what they are really looking for.   What are your wants and needs in a home and what do you want the community to have for you?

If you are moving to Metro Detroit and and one of the areas you are considering is Wayne County  you may be wondering what are the best places to live in Wayne County are.  What are the best cities to move to in the suburbs of Detroit?  You may be working near the airport, in Ann Arbor, at Ford Motor Company, or downtown Detroit.  Living in Wayne County makes it very easy to get to any of those places.  You may even work in Southfield, Ann Arbor,  Brighton, or Novi.  It is still a easy drive from Wayne County to any of these work areas.  We have a great highway system here in Metro Detroit.

Let's talk about three of the best ciities in Wayne County.  There are many good cities in Wayne County but I will talk about these three cities that many Plymouth Michiganrelocations buyers tend to chose.  Usually Plymouth, Canton, and Northville are on the lists of  Michigan relocation home buyers.  So let's talk about Canton, Plymouth MI and Northville a little more to find out what they can offer you and your family..

Here are some of the reasons why I put Plymouth, Canton, and Northville on my list of top cities to move to in Wayne County.

  1. Safety - Plymouth, Canton and Northville Michigan are very safe communities.  For most metro Detroit relocation home buyers living in a safe city is very important.  Most relocation buyers will not buy in a community that has high numbers of violent crime.  They do not want to live in a community that has a lot of murders, shootings, car jackings, or robberies. Relocation buyers will cross off a city in a heartbeat if there are gangs roaming the streets, abandoned buildings, crack or meth houses.  You do not have any of these problems in Northville,  Plymouth, or Canton.  You can walk around with out fear of being robbed, assualted, or being approached by a gang member.  Northville and Plymouth have low crime rates.  I would call them cities with incidental crime.  Criminals will never run freely in either of these two communities.  The police forces would stop that from happening.Homes for sale Plymouth MI
  2.  Schools -  Pymouth, Canton and Northville have good schools.  Schools that prepare your children for college.  Schools that the majority of children do go onto college.  They teachers, counselors, and administrators of Plymouth-Canton Schools and Northville Schools work hard to prepare your children for adult life.  Good schools for you and your family.  When a community has good schools home buyers want to move to that city.  That is why Plymouth and Northville are highly desirable communities that home buyers and relocation buyers want to live in.  When a city has good schools and low crime home values are stable.  They not only are stable they usually go up in value.  They usually will bring you a good return in investment.  That is why I think Plymouth and Northville are two of the best communities to live in the western suburbs of Detroit.
  3. Location, location, location.  Canton, Plymouth, and Northville are in WesternDowntown Plymouth MI Wayne County along the I-275 corridor and with M-14 between the two cities.  Ann Arbor and Metro Airport is less than 20 minutes away from either city.  If you have to work in Downtown Detroit that is less than 30 minutes away.  Even if you don't work downtown to be able to get to sporting events, plays, and all Detroit has to offer in under 30 minutes.  That is so nice.  Plymouth, Canton, and Northville are centrally located and with metro Detroits freeway system it is very easy to get anywhere you work or play.
  4. Of course one of the primary concerns is housing.  Do they have the type of house you are looking for in your price range?  In both Canton, Northville and Plymouth you will find homes for sale ranging from $200,000 to over a million dollars.  Small ranches and bungalows to luxury estate homes.  Some even in gated subdivisions.  You can find a home in your budget and they will usually be nice homes in well maintained subdivisions.  You are notNorthville condos for sale going to find run down houses, burnt out homes, or abandoned homes.  If a home goes into those conditions the city will step in fast to remedy the situation.  It won't stay in that condition long.  You will find that homes will usually have basements, garages, and most times brick, stone, or vinyl exteriors.  There are enough homes in Plymouth, Northville, and Canton MI to give you many choices on which house is best for you. 
  5. Conveniences - You have everything you need in these three communities.  Doctors, shopping, dentists, restaurants, bars, parks, places to worship and so much more are all very close or in the city.  You can find everything you need, everything you are used to in your old city here in Canton, Plymouth or Northville.

Great report!  I love Plymouth and Northville for their old fashion small downtown feeling. Wonderful cities, I use to work in both cities when I was with Remerica and Coldwell Banker.
