         ADA MICHIGAN MARKET REPORT   As you can see in the graph below, the sales activity has remained constant and even the cost per square foot has stayed relatively steady for the last few years in Ada homes.  Even with this good news, the same story as in other local areas, the downside is inventory. Currently we have 175 homes for sale.  We have enough inventory to last one year if no one else decides to list their  home and put it on the market.                                                                                                                                                                                      For the consumer, this means: Buyers are in the driver's seat.

Selling and buying upscale homes is not the same as the median home market.  This market has fewer buyers and they are more discriminating in taste and amenities.  The marketing and exposure of upscale properties has to match the buyers you are trying to attract.  Since financing may involve a "jumbo" loan instead of a traditional loan with the finance portion of the mortgage above $332,000.00 as the limit on a traditional loan.
