By
Real Estate Agent with Dorothy Hanson, Broker

There are some fantasic opportunities to purchase your dream home near Allegan, Michigan.  Woods and lakes abound.  Here you can have Water access to Lake Allegan and the Kalamazoo River as well as opportunities to be near the Allegan Woods for hiking, snowmobiling, hunting, etc.  IT is a vacation all year long.

Recently one of my clients sold this beautiful property with acreage on Monroe Road for $224,900.  Where else can you get a home at this price in excellent condition with a finished lower level and access to the Kalamazoo River and very near to the Allegan Woods? Monroe Road, Allegan courtesy of Dee Dee Hanson, CB Woodland SchmidtI currently have an absolutely wonderful home listed.  This home can be purchased with either nearly twenty wooded acres or forty wooded acres.  Decks abound as you live in your own nature preserve.119th Street, Allegan courtesy of Dee Dee Hanson, CB Woodland Schmidt  Along with the furnace, this home boasts a wood stove that is piped through the house and its own supply of timber.  The current owners use the wood stove primarily and has someone harvest some of the wood each year.  No problem with heating expense here!  There is even a pass through door in the living room for passing the wood into the home so you don't have to drag it in the back door. 

Start living close to nature now.  Watch the seasons change.   Watch deer and turkey in your yard. See the leaves change.  Here it is like CAMPING BUT NOT SUFFERING!  See more photos of of this great home on my website - www.mysaugatuck.com   Just go to featured listings or office listings.  This home was recently reduced 5% and it can be yours before the snow flies.  And speaking of snow, this home comes with its own plow truck.  What a way to live! 

This is indeed a Buyer's Market.  For my number oriented clients, here is a market study comparing sales of properties within a ten mile radius of Perrigo in Allegan for all of 2007 - twelve months versus 2008 to the current date for a nine month period.  This is comparing a nine month period to a twelve month period so the second column should be 1/4 less than the first column.  You will note that even accounting for difference in time the second column is considerably less than the first which means THERE ARE FANTASTIC OPPORTUNITIES FOR BUYERS!
