5 pros and cons of buying a Northville home or Northville condo. Let me give you a few pros and cons of buying a Northville home or Northville condo. Northville condos - Con - You have neighbors very close to you. You share a wall with them. So people are going to be in your business a little more.

 Some Northville real estate is moving quite quickly if you look at the table below.    Look at the column that says DOM (days on market). Some of these Northville homes have sold in 2, 3, or 4 days on the market.  That means that had time to negotiate the sale and accept it in less than four days!   You will notice that the ones that have been on the market a long time sometimes are short sales or on major streets. Also you will notice that many of the Northville homes that sold within two weeks sold close to list price.  Though there is one short sale that did sell much below what it was listed at.

I almost asked a buyer "Are you CRAZY"?  He was interested in buying a Metro Detroit Luxury home in Western Wayne County or in Oakland County.  He had called me and told me he was an investor and wanted to buy a home for himself.  He said he had bought homes at deeply discounted prices and he wanted to buy a million dollar home.  He thought he could buy a $990,000 house for $300,000.       Below are some of the luxury estate homes that have sold in the metro Detroit area in the last six months. have sold in the metro Detroit area in the last six months.

1 thing you should never do is to let somebody work on the the house before they own it - My Northville home selling tip.  I have had buyers agents call me up and ask me if it was alright that their clients started working on the home before they closed on it. NO          NO          NO ! !! You should never let a home buyer work on your Northville home ( or any home) before closing because of these reasons: Liability--- if they or their contractors get hurt on the property you are liable for the damages.  Can you afford to be sued by an unlicensed contractor.  Or would you like "Uncle Joe" suing you because he isn't an electrical contractor and he got hurt fixing the electricity?  It wouldn't be his fault of course.  It would be yours.  There is no sense to open yourself to financial l...

Here is some South Eastern Michigan first time home buyer advice..... don't use a credit union to get your mortgage.  I used to be a big fan of getting your mortgage through a credit union.  But for some reason it has become a nightmare to get a mortgage approved through a credit union. I had three deals through one credit union within the past two years and they all have been nightmares.  This credit union took about 67 days to get one deal done,  then failed to disclose the closing costs properly on another, then messed up the final paperwork on the same one, and then took five weeks to get a pre-approval letter before they denied the borrower. I have another credit union that the loan officer is having "problems"  so it too has gone beyond the closing date.  The appraisal finally got...

Abbey Knoll neighborhood in Northville MI is located North of Eight Mile Rd and East of Beck Rd right next to Pheasant Hills subdivision.  Abbey Knoll homes were built during the years of 1986 -1989 and range from 2300 - 3400 square foot. Currently there are no Abbey Knoll homes for sale listed on the Metro Detroit MLS. In the last year there have been five homes sold in the neighborhood.  There was one 2786 square foot home leased for $2300.  The other five Abbey Knoll neighborhood homes were on the market an average of 53 days.  That tells me that the homes were in fairly good condition and priced right.     ADDRESS LIST PRICE SALE PRICE DOM SQUARE FOOTAGE SP PER SQFT 1008 GLENHILL 2400 2300 2 2786 0.8255 1050 ABBEY CT 299000 289000 164 3333 86.7086 978 GLENHILL DR 369900 322500 55 31...

Yes I heard on of my friends utter the words "I lost $200,000 on my Northville home".  This guy is smart.  He is retired and wasn't ready to sell back in 2004 at the top of our Metro Detroit real estate market.  Now he is thinking of looking for a home in Florida. But he won't sell his piece of Northville Real estate because he has lost $200,000.  It doesn't matter that he wasn't ready to sell or couldn't sell 4 years ago.  It doesn't matter that he won't see his house come back to that high value in the next ten years.  It may even take 15 -20 years to come back to that level.  It took 15 years in a good economy to rise to that level.  So who knows how long it will take in this so-so economy. My friend and other people are going to have to come to grips that they didn't actually lose $...

Should you buy a new Northville home or not?  What are the downfalls of a new Northville home? You can buy a new Northville home for just about the same cost as an existing Northville home that is a few years old.  The issues are what isn't included in the sale of the home. For example: Is landscaping included? Is a deck included?  What is included in the base price?  Do you need to pay for a bunch of upgrades like granite counter tops? Do you have to pay a lot premium? That is what is going to cost you.  I would say the average person spends anywhere from 10 -15% over the base price in upgrades.  Remember the builder is most likely going to charge you for that nicer light fixture, or for the tile versus carpeting. Then you have to remember that you have to put window treatments up.  Bl...

Here is some information if you have a Northville relocation in your future and a little bit about Northville real estate.  Most people talk about Northville as one entity but it is really two different communities; The City of Northville and Northville Township.  The city of Northvilleis not very big and has a historic area that has many Victorian homes.  Whereas Northville Township has many high end newer subdivisions and lower taxes. But for this article let's consider Northville as "one community" because most people that live there do.  Within five - 10 minutes of Northville you have two good sized malls.  There is plenty of shopping in Northville and in the surrounding areas.  Whether you want a big box Home Depot or a boutique store Northville and the surrounding cities have it. ...
