You are currently browsing the monthly archive for March 2010.

If you are looking for a home with most of the maintenance and

updating done, this could be exactly what you have been searching

for.  This home in Princeton Estates just off 52nd Street in Kentwood

located at 5300 Queensbury Dr SE is a quality built home with 3

bedrooms  and  2.5 baths.

P1020153

But those simple facts don’t tell you that the home has been

updated from top to bottom.  In the past few years, this home

has had new laminate flooring laid on the main floor and in the upstairs

bedrooms, with new trim.

The kitchen has been remodeled with cherry cabinets and new

appliances.  The main bathroom has been remodeled with a spa

tub/shower enclosure, new vanity and sink top, new ceramic tile

flooring. 

 

Kitchen

The master suite is awesome!  Super sized at 12 by 28 feet, it could

be a private oasis.  It has its own private bath with ceramic tiled

walk in shower and ceramic tile flooring and large customized walk

in closet.

 

Master bedroom 2

The main floor family room has been wired for surround sound,

has a wood burning fireplace with gas log, and an 8 foot sliding

glass door to the extensive tiered decks in the back yard.  The

back yard has landscaped privacy and mature shade trees.

 

P1020154

 

The basement has been updated with a recreation room with

easy care ceramic tile flooring, recessed can lights, and an office/

craft room.  A new high efficiency furnace and 50 gallon hot

water heater was installed in 2009 for green energy savings.

All the hard work has been done – this home is in move-in condition.

Kentwood &  Wyoming have been hit hard by unemployment,

automotive 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.

Foreclosures are somewhat easier to purchase but many are sold

as-is.  The Tax Credit for home buyers will go away on April 30th,

2010.  If you have been thinking of buying a Kentwood home,

NOW IS THE TIME!!

Please note that this list can change daily as some homes

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

or buyers who haven’t owned a home for the last 3 years; also,

up to a $6500 tax credit for existing homeowners under contract by

We have gathered a list of the TOP Lowell  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 that this list can change daily as some homes

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

Check back often or just subscribe to our blog to get

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