washtenaw county: Living In or Around Ann Arbor - 09/15/10 02:04 AM
Ann Arbor Area includes many different areas throughout Washtenaw County.
If you are thinking of moving to the Ann Arbor Area and prefer to not be in the City then take a look at each of the following Villages or Townships that make up Washtenaw County. 
Each Township, Village and City is unique so I encourage you to spend a day eating breakfast in one, lunch in another and dinner in another one. Finding a home is more than a house, it is integrating into a community, meeting new friends, attending new schools and participating in a local church or synagogue.

washtenaw county: Washtenaw County August Market Data - 09/09/08 02:53 PM
Do you ever feel as a listing agent you are always giving sellers, "bad news"?
I know as an Ann Arbor agent it is discouraging to have to tell sellers that their home is not going to sell at what they had hoped for. Honestly in Ann Arbor and Washtenaw County, most of our sellers are realistic, yet when the CMA is done it is still disappointing for them to hear it.
The homes that are priced right and in remarkable condition are selling. Foreclosure's are also selling because in most cases they are 20% below the others listed in … (2 comments)

washtenaw county: 2nd Quarter Residential Reports for Ann Arbor and all Washtenaw County - 08/05/08 12:41 AM
The second quarter data had both surprises and not some surprises. When you are out selling and working with buyers on a day to day basis, Realtors just instinctively know what is happening.
If a buyer wants a home in a certain neighborhood and a certain price point then the hunt is on. My last two listings both had offers within 2 weeks, a home in Saline and a condo in Ann Arbor.
Both of the sellers were aggressive in their pricing and both homes were in tip top shape.
In Ann Arbor there is currently a 6 month supply of … (6 comments)

washtenaw county: Should you Buy or Rent in Ann Arbor, Michigan - 07/13/08 11:44 AM
Should you buy or rent if you are moving to Ann Arbor or the surrounding areas in Washtenaw County ? We get asked that question frequently.
The answer is "it depends on your individual circumstance".
One of the first things to ask yourself is, How long will you be living in Ann Arbor?
In the past it definately made more sense to buy, but now it really depends. If you are a Medical Resident and will only be here 3-4 years, then perhaps renting is the best option. Do you have a dog, that needs space to run? All of those … (11 comments)

washtenaw county: Ann Arbor and Washtenaw County Market Report for June 2008 - 07/10/08 01:06 PM
I get my data from Big House Data, a company in Ann Arbor, that compiles all their data from the Ann Arbor Board of Realtors. It varies somewhat from what the actual Ann Arbor Board of Realtors puts out. Either that or it is interpreted differently from the Ann Arbor News.
The Ann Arbor News through MLive.com reported the average price home to sell was $223,802.00. This price is back to the 2000 prices of home sales. So in 8 years, poof.... the sellers have lost value in their homes.
Big House data is reporting that the average price home sold … (6 comments)

washtenaw county: Real Estate Cycle Profits the Home Buyers - 05/17/08 02:38 AM

In August of 1979, my husband and I bought our first home in Auburn, Alabama. It was a brand new home with 1300. S. F. for $39,000. We went FHA, and my parents, and grandparents helped us with the down-payment of 3%. It was a cute little house, with a corner fireplace, huge master-bedroom suite, walk in closets and I loved it. I never wanted to move.
In December of 1980, we had our first baby there, Christa, who is now my Partner is Real Estate. In August that year, my husband was “called’ to Michigan. There were skid … (17 comments)

 Many buyer will get it?
How do you deal with it?
How do you prevent it?
Many times buyers in Ann Arbor and Washtenaw County after having their offer accepted on a house they loved, begin to question their decision they have written an offer on. “Can I afford it?”  “Will something come along that is better?”  “Has the market hit the bottom?” These are all questions that may make buyers have a sudden attack of what is commonly called among Realtors as “Buyers Remorse.”
How do you handle it?
One of the things I do is first let them question … (35 comments)

Find Current Market Reports for Ann Arbor
Wow, for 2 straight months now, the amount of homes listed in Washtenaw County, including Ann Arbor, MI has declined. That is great news. The Pfizer homes that are listed are selling first. Why? As I have posted for months now, they had the benefit of a "loss on sale" clause. So those sellers could price their homes the lowest in the subdivision and those homes are selling the fastest.
Case in point, I closed on a home purchased my Pfizer employees for 512,000 in Sept 2006, and my buyers were able to get … (30 comments)

washtenaw county: Ann Arbor Michigan and Washtenaw County June Market Data - 07/19/07 09:49 AM
Ann Arbor and all of Washtenaw County continues to feel the effects of the Pfizer move to Conn. These homes are so undervalued that buyers are snapping them up quickly. For instance, I have a transaction closing in August that the sellers paid 525,000 for last year and we are closing at 425,000. That is a great opportunity for my buyers and many other home buyers in Washtenaw County.
 The effects of this will take years to overcome and eventually these will be sold and off the market. Then sellers in those neighborhoods will be looking at appraisals coming in low and most … (17 comments)
