Catamount properties are in the rolling hills adjacent to the

Grand River in the northern section of Ada Township in a gated

community with privacy and wooded acreage.  Executive style

homes with lots of room for entertaining and all the custom extras

that make a home luxurious are the norm here.  If you  are

searching for a prestigious address, this could be what you are

looking for, as it is one of the most affluent neighborhoods in the

Grand Rapids area.

The Absorption Rate for Catamount Homes is 5 months, which means if

no new listings come on the market it will take 5 months for the existing

homes to sell at the current rate of sales.  The average sold price dropped

in 2008 and into 2009.  The average list price is $300,000 over current

selling price.  Only 4 homes sold in the last 5 months, which means buyers

are scarce in this segment of the market.  The foreclosure nightmare has

found this neighborhood, as well as more modest homes.  These sales

reflect the bank repossessed home sales, which are distressed, even in

this market price range.  No area of the real estate market has been

spared this price degradation and it affects the average selling price.
