Lowell Homes that are priced competitively are selling and selling

fairly quickly compared to the greater Grand Rapids area.

As you can see by the statistics, the homes that have their price

per square foot under $80 are seeing the most activity. There are

quite a few foreclosure or short sale homes which are bringing

down the average sales price and square footage rates lower than

they might normally be.

Some sellers have retired from the market and will try again soon,

filling an already saturated market.

They might find a better buying market, but prices are

still on the downward trend.  Today’s buyer is looking for a

well priced bargain in great condition.
