The metro Detroit real estate market has slowed a little, but hopefully this article on winning a home in a seller's market will help you if you are looking in a hot market in the suburbs of Detroit.  The real estate market has turned throughout much of the US.  It is no longer a buyers market.  In 2013 the real estate market has become more of a seller's market.  What that means is that there are more buyers than inventory.  That homes are selling quicker and home prices start rising.  Many times in a seller's market there are bidding wars because there are more buyers than homes.  In 2014 it has slowed a little, but the more desirable communities are still having some bidding wars.   So the question is how do Metro Detroit home buyers not get frustrated and not keep losing bids.  Some...

Metro Detroit's economy has gotten better, enough that people are moving to Michigan instead of leaving.    The auto companies are doing well and the Metro Detroit real estate market has been steadily increasing for the past three years.  That is great for many home buyers.  Most home buyers in the area are no longer under water unless they bought at the very top of the market and put no money down.  If they bought with a 100% loan then they may still be underwater.  It has been five years since the meltdown and many people have lowered their loan balances.  The Michiga real estate prices are still not back to the 2007 highs but we are slowly moving that way.     So if you are moving to Michigan you are probably wondering if Detroit is bad as they say on the national news.  You may be f...

Everybody watches late night TV and sees the infomercials on how people made millions buying bank foreclosures.  Can you do it?  It is possible, but banks have closed many of the loopholes in the lending process.   Let me explain what happens in the foreclosure process in Michigan:   A homeowner falls 3 or more payments behind on the mortgage.  The bank then sends them a letter that they are going to start foreclosure proceedings against the homeowner.  Sometimes the banks are very quick to get a letter out and start the foreclosure proceedings.  Other times some banks take months to get the foreclosure process started.   Then it is usually turned over to a foreclosure attorney to handle.  The house is then scheduled to be sold at " sheriff sale".  The home is auctioned off.  Unfortunat...

If you are looking to buy Commerce Township real estate you many find that at real estate agent won't want to work with you if you are working with multiple real estate agents. All real estate agents have access to the same listings. So you want to find a good real estate that will get you out to see the latest Commerce Township real estate listings as soon as they hit the market. The reason why a real estate will not work with you if you work with multiple realtors is simple. It is about getting paid.I explain it this way. Let's say you work at ABC company. They tell you when you hire one you get paid when the project is finished. They have two other employees on different shifts. You all do the same job. You work hard, come to work on time, and are working very hard to get the project...

Commerce Twp Michigan is a great place to live, work and play. Close to lakes, shopping, entertainment, expressways make it an ideal area for everyone! Today I searched for Commerce Twp Michigan homes for sale and found that there are a total of 177 homes in Commerce for sale. The average price for homes in Commerce Twp Michigan is $378,176 and have been on the market for an average of 215 days. The days "on market" is skewed because there are a few new homes to be built and they keep the listing on the market until all of the new homes have been sold. In reality, the average time on the market is about 30. So, you see how popular Commerce Twp Michigan homes are? I have given you the information below on homes that are between $300,000 and $350,000. There are 22 homes on the market as ...

Commerce Township is located in the central western side of Oakland County. Commerce Township is just a stone's throw from Novi and Twelve Oaks Mall. In 1988, M-5 opened up and made homes in Commerce Township more accessible. For years many people considered Commerce Twp to far from expressways. M-5 made getting back and forth from Commerce Township and the surrounding areas much easier. Since 1988, Commerce Township has thrived and is a great place to live, work and play. Commerce Township homes for sale as of today, 4-4-13 are listed below. As you can see there are currently 18 homes in the $200,000 to $250,000 price range. These 18 homes have an average price of $227,839 and an average time on the market of 220 days. If you would like more information on Commerce Township or any othe...

HOUSING BOOM IN LANSINGThats what the man said. I saw it in the paper about a month and a half ago. But a funny thing happened the following week after the Lansing Journal published that article. People were still leaving Michigan in a big hurry and the houses were still not selling. In fact, one of my associates commented to me that his wife was leaving him -- due  in part to not selling any houses. Sad stuff eh?There was more sour news. Lansing itself. Not a lot of jobs there. No incentive to live there. The job scene in Metro Detroit is even more bleak and have you taken a good look at Southfield recently? The commercial real estate scene is dismal if not bankrupt. Entire buildings sit empty and for sale. And while I like to partake in optimistic journalism I want to see some substan...

They say that many home buyers make up their mind in the first few minutes whether they like your Commerce home or not.  After a home buyer sees your house from a distance what do they see next?  YOUR FRONT DOOR!  Yes they walk up behind the Commerce Township realtor and start looking at the outside of your home.  They look at the door, they look at the front porch.   So one of the first Commerce home selling tips is to stand outside and look at your door.  Is the paint worn or dirty.  Could you use a fresh coat of paint on the door?  Or does your front door just need a good scrubbing?  You want that front door to sparkle and be inviting.   Is the door bell hanging away from the wall?  Or are there just wires sticking out?  Do you have old newspapers on the porch?  Are there cobwebs all...

I went out on a listing appointment today. (I change the names, cities,dates, and prices on these stories) The client had his Commerce Township home listed last year at $365,000.  It did not sell all last year.  They did have a few offers but the deals fell through.  The piece of Commerce real estate was priced at the very top of the price range but the home did not have top end features. In fact the Commerce home had an old worn out kitchen.  The cabinets in the Commerce home were formica and the wood trim was worn out.  The varnish and the stain was off the wood trim.  If you are selling a piece of Commerce real estate and you want top price then the home should be top end too.  Buyers are smart.  They are going to compare your house to other houses and the features in those houses. T...
