On the Move - City2Shore Gateway Group March 2023
The real estate market in West Michigan is flourishing with new opportunities for home buyers and sellers. Whether you are looking to buy or sell a home, understanding the current market conditions in Allendale, Blendon, Georgetown, Robinson and Polkton/ Coopersville can help you make the best decisions for your needs.
While all of West Michigan is seeing an increase of demand from home buyers, we are only seeing a small increase in sellers who want to sell their home. There is a large backlog of buyers trying to find a new home and that is keeping the sellers’ prices at historical highs. This is a fantastic time to sell your home or property as the Federal Reserve is likely to raise mortgage interest rates again soon which will cool the buyers down once again as we saw last autumn.
Let’s take a look at what the current real estate market looks like in these cities.
