It’s a case of lower inventory and higher sale prices across almost the entire board.  It’s just a matter of time before the market improves in the Mason Oceana and Manistee areas.  The real estate market tends to ripple north from the south along the lakeshore.  The greater Grand Haven Real Estate market seems to have kicked into high gear.  Inventory is stable and sales are up a strong 14%.  Seems the secret is out on this fabulous beachside community.

I think we actually have a pretty healthy market right now, as prices don’t seem to be accelerating at too fast of a clip, and the fact that mortgage rates remain low keeps owning a home a very attractive endeavor.
