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.*

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

Current Real Estate Market Report ~ Rockford Michigan ~ June 2009

Current Absorption Rate for Rockford Michigan is 7.5 months

on average, which means if no new listings come on the market,

it will take 7.5 months to sell current inventory.  This is a

50%. decrease from last month, so inventory is selling.

 

Rockford Public Library Rockford MI

The under $200K market is moving faster than the over $200K.

Homes less than $200,000 since May 1, 2009 sold prices appear

to be still declining slightly, even though 126 homes sold in

Rockford Public School District last month.  Foreclosure & bank

owned homes could be tipping the figures downward.

The over $200K market has taken a 15% decrease in average

sold price from last month.

Inventories have increased with the spring market and sales are

starting to take off in Rockford over the last 2 months.  The absorption

rate is 7.5 months which is a normal market range for our area.

It appears that smaller homes are selling faster because the price

per sq ft has gone up while the average sale price has declined by

15% from last months report.  It is important  that you have your

home in  great condition and priced correctly. Over-priced homes

will not sell in this buyer’s market.

Rockford Michigan will be celebrating the 4th of July by having

a Children’s Bike Parade, outdoor concert and a fireworks display.

Like most small towns across America, this is the time to show your

patriotism by decorating your bike, riding in the parade so your

proud parents can take pictures.  In Rockford, you get to

relax by the Rogue River for an outdoor concert and a great

fireworks display.
