Existing home sales for the first quarter of 2016 are coming in strong for Newaygo County. We are on pace to see another good year! Inventory of residential homes continues to plague wanting buyers, making it difficult to purchase suitable housing. Waterfront home sales are on track. Waterfront home values came in significantly lower than last year at this time with an average sale price of $136,492 vs. $170,768 in 2015. Sales of residential homes are down by 18% over last year, however values rose over the first quarter last year by 22% with an average sale price of $106,768 vs. $83,091 in 2015. The lack of inventory for residential homes continues to drive pricing up. As Spring arrives, more homes will become available, stabilizing the up and down housing values. Vacant land sales have spiked as new home construction becomes a viable alternative for buyers. Interest rates have remained unchanged. It continues to be a great time to buy and sell!

Thinking of selling your home? Want to get top dollar? Of course you
"Thank you so much for making my dream of becoming a home owner a reality!! My realtor was Jill and I could not ask for a more fun person to go look at houses. She was willing and ready to take me wherever I wanted, pretty much whenever I needed and always ready to answer my questions or find the answers. My first finance person was a huge disappointment but she was able to connect me with Doug at Gold Star financial and I could not have asked for a better team. They made the process as easy as possible and helped me purchase the purfect home. As a single small business owner buying a home can proove to be a challenge but they made it happen!! Thank you all for making my this work!! -Tiffany "
