I had a old client call me last May to sell their Farmington Hills home.  At the time they called me they had three foreclosures in their neighborhood.  I brought them all the recent sold homes in the area.  I figured the max the house would appraise for was $185,000 because most of the homes sold in the low $170,000. The sellers wanted to move quick and sell quick to move to Florida.  There was a home they wanted to buy there.  They wanted to list it at $250,000.  I told them it wouldn’t sell at that price at that time. These Farmington Hills home sellers would have been smarter to sit back and wait to sell their home.  But they didn’t want to wait.  They had to move now and buy that Florida home before it was gone.  They talked to 3 realtors.  Two of us told them the bad news about wh...

The Preserves of Meadowbrook is a subdivision in Farmington Hills MI. It is newer construction that is sort of a modern contrast to its neighboring Meadowbrook Hills, a subdivision with more classic houses on older yet charming landscapes. This subdivision is close to Livonia MI and Northville MI.  In fact, homes in this subdivision have a Northville address, but the city of Farmington Hills MI maintains them, and children of families here attend Farmington schools. To learn more about these homes, you can visit the Homes for Sale in Farmington Hills MI website.

Farmington, MI and Farmington Hills, MI Pothole Reporting and Repair Info Isn't it amazing that potholes appear year after year, without fail? The main reason that they keep coming back is water: precipitation that shows up as ice, rain and snow then seeps into pavement cracks, freezes, causing the pavement and underlying roadbed material to expand. Temperatures eventually rise above freezing, the water melts, creating a cavity or void in the road. Potholes are mostly created when a vehicle drives over the cavity, cracking the pavement and loosens the roadbed material. More precipitation, another freezing/thawing cycle throughout the late winter and early spring, team up to make potholes significantly worse. Residents can advise the city of potholes on side streets or main roads. To rep...

There is a very good reason to buy homes for sale in Farmington Hills MI. They provide good quality for good value. Farmington Hills property taxes are less expensive than several surrounding neighborhoods.  Yet the Farmington Public Schools are ranked well, and Farmington Hills MI is one of the safest cities in all of Oakland County. There are many other reasons, but this is a really good one, I think.
