Being that this is the time of year we all "Get the Bug" and have the dream of owning a home on the water with lot's of summer fun in the sun, I decided to do a little research and find out how many lakes we have here in our lovely Jenison MI, Georgetown Charter Township Area.  Even though I have lived here all of my life, I was quite pleasantly surprised to find we had so many! We actually have approximately 16 lakes (to my best count) some which were developed in and around the 1970's or so and then of course our newer developments from the 1990's - 2000+ years.  Prices will vary depending on the age of the home and the lake it is on...low end pricing may begin at about $150,000.00 and go all the way up to $700,000.000+ for our Luxury Homes located in our Newer Lake Front Development...

    What are the names of all the Jenison MI Area Condo's and where can I find them????........   We all know that there are way more condo's available out there than many of us are even aware of.  The trick is being able to learn what the different Condo Association Names are and where you can find them.  It is not always as easy as going to the phone book or even the internet for often many associations will not have a main office for you to call or a even website.   In order to make your Jenison MI Area Condo shopping experience as easy and uncomplicated as possible I have put together this very simple and basic map for you to use. You can view this map by simply clicking on the link below.   If you then choose a condo name located in the left hand column and click on it, it will hig...

As a Realtor Specializing in Condo's in the Jenison, Hudsonville and Grandville MI Area's, I learned the hard way that finding General Information on Condo Associations can not only be difficult but also terribly frustrating.   As you begin to explore the different possibilities open to you in Buying a condo you will learn quickly that when it comes to Condo Associations everything varies, from the cost of the Monthly Association Fee too, will they allow you to place that bird feeder out on your back deck?  While preparring to purchase a Condo you should decide very early on what things are most important to you.  On top of the typical wants and needs list for purchasing a home such as...1. How many beds and baths do you need?  2. What area do you want to live in?  3. What price range d...

This has definitely been a banner year for me when it comes to the sale of condo's in the Jenison, Grandville and Hudsonville MI areas.  What I have been noticing is it is becoming more and more widespread for our young First Time Home Buyers to consider purchasing a condo, not only as a good investment (rent vs own) but also because it provides all the benefits of home ownership without all the work and outside maintenance typically involved.This is quite a switch from the past when condo's were by and large considered just a good move for seniors in deciding to downsize as they began their retirement years.  Although this new trend for First Time Home Buyers is definitely having an positive impact on our condo communities we still are especially fortunate to have our wonderful Senior...

I first heard about Tabu's Pet Grooming last summer.  I have a 6 pound pomeranian named Kody who loves the water!  The lake, a pool, and especially the sprinkler.  He also likes to bob for fish in the live well of the boat.  Needless to say....he needs a bath and a brushing...regularly. I called Bill Bultema, the owner of Tabu's Pet Grooming for help.  I've never owned a pet that needed a haircut before and had no idea what services a Pet Grooming business offered.  They bathe, brush, dematt, scissor finish, trim nails and more!  It's actually a salon for your pet.  I made the appointment and Kody has visited monthly ever since. What I like about it most is how friendly the entire staff is.  Always greeting you with a smile and actually always greeting your pet.  Afterall, the pet is th...

I grew up in the Jension MI area, have lived here most of my life and this Mansion has always been of great interest to me for I have always found myself drawn to homes built during the 1800 and early 1900 era's. If you lived/live in Jension, you will find this home has always been know as the Jenison Mansion by our local people.  In 1994 the Mansion was up for sale and I found myself fortunate to be able to go through and view it during one of the open houses being held.  At that time it had fallen unfortunately into quite a state of disrepair.  I vividly remember thinking as I was going through room to room...this is a sad home right now and is in desperate need of much love and restoration.  Even through the sadness however you could still capture some of the grandeur of earlier time...

"Thanks to Ethan, we sold our home within 77 days of him taking our listing.  We previously had it listed 5 months with another agent who brought us very little activity.  Ethan got us more viewings in the 77 days he had it listed than the previous realtor had in the total 5 months. His marketing strategy is unflawed and we have told many of our friends to consider him for their future real estate transactions." -Joanne NYou can contact Ethan Dozeman by visiting his website at www.RealEstateinGrandRapids.com or               emailing him at mailto:Ethan@DreamHomeDozeman.com or calling him on his cell at 616-292-7329 or dial toll free at 1-866-393-0366

Spring is finally here the flowers are blooming and I find myself so thankful!!  Our state bird the Robin has returned (yes I have seen them), our color is returning with the trees budding and flowers blooming, emerging from their long winter sabbaticals, this is all a true confirmation that spring has finally arrived and we Michigander’s are more than ready!  If you have decided that now is the time for you to begin pursuing the home of your dreams the first and most important place for you to begin is in becoming pre-approved.  Getting pre-approved is free and allows you comfort in knowing how much you qualify for, this will then tell you the price range you should be looking at.  Once you have become pre-approved you will receive a pre-approval letter.  This letter should always be ...

First start off with 119 homes for sale in Jenison Schools. For the month of February in Jenison 10 homes for sale expired. 11 Jenison Homes went pending or a real estate agent found their buyer a home in Jenison. 14 homes actually closed so the seller sold the home in Jenison Schools and hopefully the buyer is happy with the new home in Jenison, MI.  That is quite a few homes sold in one month. 35 homes off the market, but 119 other homes for sale in Jenison Schools.  The average sold price for a home in Jenison was $139,000.  Just about average but not quite for a Grand Rapids home. so 119 divided by 25 homes means that there is still a 4.75 month supply of homes for sale in Jenison, Michigan.  That makes it a market in Jenison that is doing well compared to other parts of Grand Rapid...

This morning I have a BNI meeting or Business Network International.  It is a professional lead exchanging group.  Right now we have 32 different professions.  I have one listing or house for sale from a lead I received and working with a couple of buyers.  Yesterday I went to lunch with our drywaller Jack.  He is a very neet individual and it was great to get to know him better.  He said I have a daughter who is really looking in Jenison real estate for a home under $130,000.  I emailed him 6 homes to email to his daughter who is a first time home buyer in Jension, Michigan and am bringing him the hard copy this morning. The power of networking in real estate is phenomenal.  Next time I will tell you all about the new home that my wife and I just bought.  I might have a renter already ...

Born in city of Grand Rapids, MI and raised in the nearby community of Jenison, I have grown to truly love and enjoy this wonderful community.  I have watched this area grow from a small locale with one grocery store and the closest shopping mall about 40 minutes away, to a place which is known as having one of the Premier School Districts in the state of MI, fabulous shopping and restaurants nearby, community events and so much more!   My personal favorite….Jenison is pretty centrally located (about 20 minutes) to both Michigan’s West Coast Beaches which are in my opinion some of the most BEAUTIFUL beaches you will ever find and the City of Grand Rapids, a city with a small town atmosphere and much enjoyment to offer. The sand of our beaches is soft on your feet and the sunsets specta...
