We have 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, arble 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.*

Cascade Woods is an established neighborhood of large, executive

style homes in Cascade Township, MI. Most of these homes were

built in the 1960’s and 1970’s, although there are a few newer

homes that were built recently in the area. Close to the village of

Cascade and the Thornapple  River, this heavily wooded area has

been a Grand Rapids desired suburban place to live for  decades.

Part of the Forest Hills Public School District, which draws many

families, there is also the river and it’s picturesque appeal.  The

drive down Thornapple River Drive between Ada and Cascade in

the fall is one of the prettiest drives in the greater Grand Rapids area.

More information about this Cascade Woods Home on our web site.

Cascade Woods Market Report Jan – April 2010

10 Homes For Sale,  0 Pending,  1 SOLD, 5 Expired

Cascade Woods Active Listings: 10

Cascade Woods Average price – $386,260

Cascade Woods Average $/SqFt – $141.29

Cascade Woods Average days on market – 116

Cascade Woods Sold Listings: 1

Cascade Woods average price – $211,000

Cascade Woods average $/SqFt – $ 81.40

Cascade Woods average days on market – 135 days

Cascade Woods Expired Listings: 5

The Absorption Rate for Cascade Woods Homes is 40 months,

Which means if no new listings come on the market, it will take

3.3 years to sell the existing inventory.   The average sold price

has actually risen but one sale doesn’t make a trend.

This could reflect foreclosures, short sales, and homes in dated

condition  that have sold over the last 12 months. The average list

price  has decreased by over 9% since 2009.   Only 1 Cascade Woods

home has sold since this year, so far.

Today’s buyers do not want to do ANY updates, which includes

painting, new kitchens & baths, and new flooring. If your Cascade

Woods home hasn’t sold, it is probably condition,  which gets

us back to price.  If you don’t want to improve your home, you

won’t get the same price as people who have updated and kept

their home current according to recent trends.

Clements Mill is  a newer home development built by Eastbrook

Construction in the Ada MI area, started in 1999 and completed in

2003. Apart from newer homes, part of the appeal is the proximity

of  Forest Hills Central Middle and High Schools, Forest Hills

Woodlands 5/6 School, St Roberts & Ada Christian Schools, which

are a short distance away.

Clements Mill is midway between the Village of Ada and Forest Hills

shopping area at Cascade Road and Forest Hills.

Ada’s Clements Mill has seen steady to declining values in the short

time it has been built out.  This is largely due to the current housing

economy where all area homes have suffered a decline in value. This

subdivision continues to be a desired location for local residents.

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.

The total square footage is noted here, although only the

main floors are used to figure price per square foot.

Lowest prices/Sq Ft range from $31.93 to $64.97 in Kentwood this month.

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.

Check back often or just subscribe to our blog to get

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

bring them to current market standards. They might need major

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

There are still bargains to be had in the Rockford area.

If you are thinking of buying in Rockford, now is the time

to be looking. Prices are climbing in other areas of the

Grand Rapids market. Homes that are in great condition

and priced right are selling quickly.

"Below tax appraisal" priced homes are disappearing from the

market in some areas of Grand Rapids.

Don’t overlook the $8000 tax credit for first time home buyers

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

ask about the  $6500 tax credit for existing homeowners under

contract by April 30, 2010.
