West Michigan Real Estate Statistics through 7/31/2021

As our hot market continues to cook through the summer, let’s take a look at the real estate statistics over the past 12 months.

West Michigan Real Estate

West Michigan Real Estate Average Sales Price

As we all have all heard in the news, prices of homes have been on the increase over the past year, and West Michigan is no exception.  Take a look at the graph above to see just how much on average things have changed for the good for homeowners.

A lot has been made of the real estate market these days, and why not?  Americans are seeing their net worth increase dramatically if you’re a homeowner, as demand for stability and private space has become a priority, and record low interest rates make real estate a very attractive investment.  And looking at the numbers, it’s pretty hard to argue that fact. 

Southwestern Michigan, which comprises areas such as South Haven, St Joseph, and New Buffalo have seen a 27.3 % increase since January 2020 in average home prices, which equates to $70,000 equity for those that bought before 2020.  This market is an attractive getaway for people from Chicago, only a short drive of less than an hour on average.

Holland and Saugatuck, which make up one market for our statistics purpose has also seen very solid gains in average sale price, up an average of $72,000 in the same time period, or 25.1%.  Many people are finding a quieter and slower pace of life is exactly what they want, and Holland and Saugatuck offer that, plus many fine amenities and an active art scene.  The lakes aren’t so bad either.

North Ottawa County is the region that comprises Grand Haven, Spring Lake to name a couple, and is also a hotbed for those seeking water and a quiet peaceful locale.  The area seems to have found its stride amongst the other lakeshore communities, which makes sense considering all it has to offer.  Prices are up almost 17% since January of 2020 in this area, so there are still some values to be found.

All in all, it looks like we will be seeing a steady increase for the foreseeable future along the west coast. If you are curious of the increase in your particular home, please feel free to contact us.

Moving Up: How to Know When to Upgrade to a Bigger Home

 

By Kara Masterson

If you have always wanted to live in a bigger home, then you may be wondering when the right time is for you to move. Bigger homes are more expensive and require more maintenance. However, you may be at a point in your life financially where you’re ready for a bigger place. Here are several signs that indicate it’s time for you to move into a bigger home:

Your Family Is Growing

Your current home may not fit your needs if your family is growing. If you’re expecting another child, then you will need a home with extra rooms. You’ll also need a home with extra storage space and bathrooms. This can be a very common reason why people seek to upgrade their homes. By checking in your area, you can start to plan your budget even before the birth of your child and make sure that an upgrade is right for you.

You Have the Money To

Many people move into a smaller home because that is all that they can afford. However, if you can afford to move into a bigger space, now may be the time to do it. If you have saved up a significant amount of money or are earning more money than you used to, you can likely handle the financial responsibility of buying a larger home.

When considering this type of move, make sure to look in a nicer area, such as one with better schools and other community opportunities.

You’re Working From Home

More people are working from home these days, and one of the keys to successfully working at home is to have the right space. That’s why you may need a larger home. Most small homes do not have enough room to accommodate a home office or the space for a makeshift desk.

If you live in a bigger home, you can convert an unused room into an office space. This can be especially helpful if you are considering starting a business, as having a space in your home to do this can save you a lot of money on rent.

You may love your current home, but it may be time for you to look for something a little larger. If your family is growing, it may be time for more space. Moving into a bigger home is also a good idea if you have the funds. Additionally, a new, larger house can be a big help if you work from home and need designated office space!
