Northern Macomb and Oakland County Living

As REALTORS®, Ed and I are used to fielding all types of questions about real estate, whether it's by phone or at some type of event or gathering. But we're kind of surprised no one has called or asked us directly about the 3.8% real estate tax regarding the health care bill. We've received emails, seen people post on facebook, and heard people talking about it but all with the wrong information.

Now I'll be the first to admit I'm not a fan of the health care bill and it scares me to death that this 2,733 page bill was passed by one party. However, when it comes to parts of the bill that effect my business I went right to the source the National Association of REALTORS®. The video below explain the 3.8% tax and who and how it will effect sellers.

What Percentage of Homes Do You Think Are Foreclosures?

 

On April 15, 2008, due to the number of buyers requesting "foreclosures" or "bank-owned" homes for sale, we felt it was important to start tracking the impact of foreclosures in our marketplace.  Our goal was to see what percentage of homes currently on the market were actually foreclosures.  What started out as basic information has turned out to be very valuable data, not only for our clients but also our agents. It has allowed us to better educate our buyers and sellers on what's really happening here in Macomb County.

We have continued to run these numbers weekly since then and have compiled a snapshot of August for the past 4 years below.

Every few months my husband Ed will ask me "are you ready to move to a condo yet"? The topic usually comes up after I have picked weeds all day, or when I'm cleaning our house before or after a huge party. Of course, for him, it's when a huge gas or electric bill comes. Although we're not quite ready to downsize and move into a condo, there comes a time when that decision may need to be made.

Warwick Village CondosWhen to Choose Condo Living?

Some people choose a condominium so they can travel more, some to escape outside maintenance, some simply because they like the lifestyle. Here in Michigan we see many retirees choose condo living when they become too old to care for their home or they become "snowbirds." Of course, there are tons of snowbirds that keep their home
