We have gathered a list of the TOP Kentwood  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.

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.

creep up and inventory go down, so if you have been waiting

for the best time to buy in Caledonia, don’t wait much longer.

The Buyers Tax Credit is available for First Time Buyers and

homeowners who have lived in their homes for the past 5 of

8 years only until April of this year.  We don’t expect it to be

renewed and interest rates will likely go up.  NOW is the best

time to buy a Caledonia home.

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.*
