Cascade Neighborhood Absorption Report

Tamarron Estates is an upscale suburban development with large

wooded lots, walking access to Thornapple Elementary School and

the Thornapple River Backwaters.  It is located just off of

Thornapple River Drive and Cascade Road in Cascade Township.

The house styles vary from large, comfortable ranches, traditional

two stories, to contemporary homes.  Many of the homes were built

in the late 1970’s to the mid 1980’s, though there is a new street

that has much newer homes on acreage settings.  Some houses close

to and surrounding this development are in the upper price brackets

in the Grand Rapids real estate market.

MARKET SYNOPSIS: Tamarron homes are selling but not at the

prices that sellers would like to see. Today’s market is accepting

homes under $80.00 a sq ft. This is a substantial price reduction for

this area.  As you  can see, the current sellers think their homes

will sell at $ 130-150/sq ft.  The two homes that have sold since

January might be distress sales or foreclosed homes. List prices

have been reduced but still not a lot of activity in this area.

If you have to sell your Tamarron Estates home now, the market

place is telling you that you need to be under $100 a sq ft or

less to see your home sold.

Cascade Township has seen tremendous growth in the last fifty

years, though the growth rate has slowed considerably since 2000.

The majority (82%)live in a single family home, and the median

value is  $220,00.  Household incomes in Cascade Township are the

highest among surrounding Grand Rapids areas at $ 87,290.  Most

people in Cascade Township prefer to live here because of the quality

housing, safe areas, and quality schools.
