When relocation buyers have a Michigan move in their future they are very concerned about school scores when they have children.  They want to have their children go to the best schools possible.  So what makes a better school.  Is it just the scores?  Is it parent participation? They say West Bloomfield, Birmingham, Grosse Pointe, and Northville schools are some of the best in Southeastern Michigan.  Is it coincidental that those schools are in the highest income areas of Southeastern Michigan? I say this because a lady I know lives in White Lake and her son went to Waterford schools.  As a Michigan real estate agent i hear that Waterford schools are not the best.  But yet as she points out her friend's son made it into University of Michigan and her son graduated with a four point and...

    Commercial Real Estate in Michigan is starting to move. We are seeing small and large business making decisions in their facilities and real estate needs. Those very best spaces, those buildings with the great price, great location, and in great condition are selling and leasing. Fast. Jamie, how come I see 20 different buildings with "available" out in front, and you only tell me there are 4 spaces that work for my company? Yes, there are many options that DON"T work. Smaller businesses tend to spend the most time looking for commercial office and retail properties on their own. They waste hours, and many times will secure a space for more than the market rates. Rental Rates for Retail Office and Industrial Space in Waterford.  Here are the average rates in the area for July Indust...

Here.is a summer report of what has sold on Maceday Lake in Waterford Michigan in the last 365 days.  I wasnted to show you the list price versus the sales price so you know how to bid.  Many lake homes are going close to list price unless they are in the upper price ranges or if the bank is knocking the price down because of the appraisal. One Maceday Lake home was leased for $900 a month.  It was 1071 square foot.  The price range for Maceday Lake front homes ranged from $32 a square foot all the way up to $177 a square foot.  The least expensive home for Maceday lakefront real estate went for $35,000 back in August 2010.  I didn't see the house but it had been on the market for 217 days, so I'm guessing it was in rough shape.   The most expensive piece of Maceday Lake real estate wen...

Woodhull Lake Lakefront Real Estate Sales Woodhull Lake is a 135 acre all sports lake located in Waterford, MI with a little bit of the northern end spilling a bit into Independence Twp. Woodhull Lake connects to both Lake Oakland (an additional 235 acres) and Eagle Lake. In 2010 there were 5 sold lakefront homes on Woodhull Lake (reported through Realcomp II MLS) ranging in price from $174,900-$365,000- 4 regular sales and 1 bank owned home. And of course the bank owned home was the lowest sale price AND the listing agent didn't bother to fill in the lake name search field. Which  means if someone was searching for Woodhull Lake specifically, that listing would not have shown up. Makes you wonder if that could have something to do with the low price? There is currently 1 sale pending o...

      The Waterford Relay For Life 2010 is well underway. Currently there are 32 Teams signed up online, and over 200 participants thus far. This year looks to be a great success.   Last year, thanks to a number of generous supporters, Team Kickin Cancer launched the "Please Move the Toilet" campaign. The 2009 Waterford Relay For Life was a huge success.  This fundraiser was a great success and loved by everyone. Families had a fun time picking out their next friend to get the display.   This year we have added 4 new members to Team Kickin Cancer, and changed up the lawn display fundraiser. As we all know, "cancer effects everyone" and "won't take a holiday". To emphasize that we now have a new display.

 I am sure you are aware that negative credit is a major problem that plagues millions of people in this country today. Without a doubt, it is the number one issue that prevents the overwhelming majority of your clients from realizing the American Dream of home ownership. We know that in the real estate and mortgage business you may have to contact dozens of prospects in order to find five to ten people whose credit is good enough to qualify for a home loan. That low percentage has been an accepted part of the business for years. At United Credit Education Services, we have developed a process by which we work with consumers to research outdated, inaccurate and unverifiable information on their credit reports to improve their credit profiles. This service could help some of your prospec...
