We are very fortunate to have such a wonderful entertainment venue

in our Forest Hills Area.  The fabulous Fine Arts Centers Shows this

winter-spring season have something for everyone.  Not only the

headlining events like Amy Grant, and  Whose Live Anyway, the local

high school productions are not exactly the amateur events I remember

from my school days.  The musicals we have seen have had seriously

talented young performers from our local high schools.

There are still quite a few shows to catch this season. If you haven’t

been to our fabulous gold star LEED performance center, you should

stop by and take a look.

It is open every day from 8am to 5 pm with a featured artist-in-residence

work displayed in the lobby.  This month, fiber artist Jo-Ann Van Reeuwyk

displays vessels that explore the concept of containment.

Fine Arts Center 

We volunteer at the Fine Arts Center and find it a very entertaining and

rewarding way to give back to our community.  We have ushered shows,

taken tickets, handed out programs, placed posters and guided people to

their seats.  The Fine Arts Center is a part of the Forest Hills School

System but must survive financially on its own, which means volunteers

are vital to the program. Without volunteers, it wouldn’t be possible to

fund the shows and events that take place to enrich the community.

Forest Hills (Ada Cascade) MI Real Estate Absorption Report

Forest Hills is actually a school district in AdaCascade MI. This market

is always active. These Grand Rapids suburban communities have

wonderful neighborhoods, some new and some older with Top Ranked

Forest Hills Public Schools, and private schools, such as Ada Christian

& St Roberts that attract  many home owners.

This report will cover the April 1, 2009  to July 30, 2009 real estate

market activity.

Forest Hills Eastern High school Ada Township MI

new listings come on the market, it will take 13.3 months to sell the existing

$ 300K+ homes at the current rate of sale.  This rate is down significantly

from  last month, sold prices are inching upward.  Inventory is down slightly,

but sales are holding fairly steady. Your Forest Hills home has a good chance

to sell if it is in good condition and priced correctly.
