  • DEMAND IS STRONG: CHECK OUT “BUYER TRAFFIC REPORT” PUBLISHED BY THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF REALTORS.
  • LESS COMPETITION: KENT COUNTY IS EXPERIENCING 1.5 MONTHS OF CURRENT INVENTORY.  6 MONTHS OF INVENTORY IS CONSIDERED A NORMAL HOUSING MARKET.
  • CLOSING PROCESS WILL BE QUICKER: THE COMPETITIVE MARKET HAS CAUSED BUYERS TO BE READY WITH PRE-APPROVALS AND FINANCING IN PLACE.  “ORIGINATION INSIGHT REPORT” SAYS THAT TIME TO CLOSE DAYS HAVE DECREASED TO 43 DAYS, HOWEVER THE GRAND RAPIDS MARKET CENTER HAS EXPERIENCED FAR LESS.
  • NEVER A BETTER TIME TO MOVE UP: IF YOUR NEXT MOVE IS A PREMIUM OR LUXURY HOME, THE INVENTORY IN THE HIGHER PRICE RANGES HAS FORCED THESE MARKETS INTO A BUYER’S MARKET.  CORELOGIC IS PROJECTING A 5% APPRECIATION RATE OVER THE NEXT 12 MONTHS.  WATCH YOUR HOUSING INVESTMENT GROW.
  • IT’S TIME TO MOVE ON WITH YOUR LIFE: WHAT ARE YOUR REASONS TO MAKE A MOVE?  IS MONEY MORE IMPORTANT THAN “FAMILY”, “HEALTH” OR “STATE OF WELL-BEING”?
