You are currently browsing the monthly archive for January 2010.

The New Remodeling Magazine is out with the annual Cost vs Value Report.

SM Master Bath

One of the most common questions sellers and buyers ask me is:

"Should I remodel  or add on to my house? 

Is adding another bathroom going to be money I can recoup when I sell?"

 

Even today’s buyers that are buying at 2000 or before price levels, need

to be smart about home  improvements if they think they will be moving

in the next 10 years.  It is always intriguing that some areas of the

country value some home additions more or less than others.

 

This report gives an estimation of the return and an approximate cost of

several common remodels, additions and rehab projects in the home.  It

is specific to different regions of the country. 

 

2009-2010 COST vs VALUE REPORT

 

 Since we are from Grand Rapids Michigan we have directed you to that page

but you can navigate to other areas of the country from there. We hope this

article is helpful in the decision making process,  if you are considering a

home remodel or addition.

 

As always, feel free to call me about specific questions for your specific area.

GRAND CANYON WEST, ARIZ. – Perched over the Grand Canyon close to a mile above the Colorado River, a massive, multimillion-dollar glass walkway will be the  centerpiece of a struggling Indian tribe’s plan to lure tourists to its remote reservation.Tribal officials say the development, which may eventually include hotels, restaurants and a golf course, is the best way to address the social ills of a small reservation, where the 2,000 residents struggle with a 50% unemployment rate and widespread alcoholism and poverty.The Hualapai have worked for years to attract more tourists to their 1-million-acre reservation. About 200,000 people visit the reservation each year, about 1/25th of the visitors to the Grand Canyon National Park, about 5 hours away.

 

We took the tour, walked the skywalk, and took many pictures of the stunning scenery.  Hope you enjoy our online photo album.

Major remodeling on the I-96 expressway starting at the bridge over the

Grand River in Grand Rapids and running to Fuller Street exit is being

announced by Michigan Department of Transportation through a novel

method – a YouTube video. 

The video takes you on a completed trip through the new proposed

highway, from both directions, east & west. It shows the 4 bridges

that will be replaced: Diamond, Lafayette, Eastern, and Coit Avenues.

This $40 Million project is part of American Recovery & Reinvestment

Act benefits.  A new south wall, landscape beautification and new

signage and lighting will be added along this two mile driveway to

downtown Grand Rapids.

 

 

Article here but the best information is covered in the video.

We have gathered a list of the TOP Rockford  Michigan Houses

to buy, based on price per square foot.   Price per square foot

is a great leveler.  If two similar homes are listed at similar prices,

their price per square foot should be similar.  The price should reflect

the interior finish of the  home.   For example, if it has crystal chandeliers,

marble tile, & a new kitchen, this would be more per square foot than

a home that still has the 1970’s decor and/or is in derelict condition.

 

Please note: This list can change daily as some homes sell, prices are

adjusted and other homes come on the market.

The homes listed below are probably dated and would need new

carpeting, paint, and kitchen-bath redos at a minimum to

bring them to current market standards. They might need major

repair work done, such as a new roof & mechanicals.

 

*Some of these homes may be bank owned foreclosures and

not habitable as is or available for a mortgage in present condition.*

up-to-date local real estate information that you want to know.

Kentwood &  Wyoming have been hit hard by unemployment, auto-

motive plant shutdowns and loss of population. Short Sales are

extremely difficult for most home buyers to consider as a purchase.

Please keep in mind the time alone [3-9 months] of negotiating with

the banks makes it almost impossible for some buyers to consider.

Please note that this list can change daily as some homes

sell, prices are adjusted and other homes come on the market.

We have gathered a list of the top East Grand Rapids Houses to buy

based on price per square foot.  Price per square foot is a great leveler.

If two similar homes are listed at similar prices, their price per square

foot should be similar.  It should reflect the interior finish of the home.

For example, if it has crystal chandeliers, marble tile, a new kitchen,

this would be more per square foot than a home that still has the

1970’s decor and/or is in derelict condition.

Please note that this list can change daily as some homes sell, prices are

adjusted and other homes come on the market.

The total square footage is noted here, although only the main floors

are used to figure price per square foot.

East Grand Rapids bargains have all but disappeared.   Only one home

under $100K (it is under 1000 square feet) has been listed for the past

8 months.

If you have been waiting for the right time to buy, don’t wait much

longer.  We are seeing definite signs of competition for homes in most

areas, like East Grand Rapids and Forest Hills. Homes in good condition

and priced appropriately are selling quickly. 

*Some of these homes may be bank owned foreclosures and not habitable

as is or available for a mortgage in present condition.*
