Hidden Hills is an established neighborhood of homes off Cascade Road

and 30th Street in Cascade Township, Michigan, a suburb of Grand Rapids.

Home construction started here in the 1960’s housing boom in the Forest

Hills School District and has continued through to today. There are new

homes still being built in this neighborhood.

Mid-size homes with quality construction are the rule, this suburban sub-

division area has been a desirable  place to live in the Grand Rapids home

market for many years.

dropped  about $120K and about $30 /SqFt in the last 14 months.

Time on the market has decreased slightly and we have 10 homes

sold since the first of the year.  Prices selling way below 2004 prices

is sobering news for Hidden Hills sellers but solid homes available at

bargain prices for buyers who want the Forest Hills School District.

Sellers:  You can’t get top price if your condition is vintage 1980’s.

Today’s buyers have too many choices to settle for outdated homes.
