An Interesting Day In Grand Rapids Real Estate


East Grand Rapids Luxury Homes There is something for everyone in this market. Today, I showed two different homes to two separate clients. The first home was located on Reeds Lake in East Grand Rapids. A beautiful, rambling lakefront ranch on almost 3 acres with 5 bedrooms, 4 baths and over 5000 square feet. This is a gorgeous home with Sub Zero appliances, granite counters, marble tile, gigantic rooms and one of the coolest bars I have ever seen. It was an old, gnarly bar that looked like it was salvaged out of some tavern somewhere and restored to it’s former scarred, gleaming glory. The lot itself is wooded and the house is quite a bit back from the road offering plenty of privacy. Sticker price, over $1.5 Million dollars.

Later this afternoon I met up with a new buyer looking for a fixer-upper in Grand Rapids Investment PropertyGrand Rapids. He was using my website to search for homes and I had been monitoring new and repriced listings daily (as I do with all of my clients) and sending the ones that had potential. He called me up and we met at the home in the Division and Burton area of town. This home offers 4 bedrooms, 2 baths, a full basement, 1500 square feet and a 3 stall detached garage. It’s going to definitely need some work but the asking price on this foreclosure is just over $10,000 dollars.

That’s $10,000 dollars! For a rather large house. I was amazed. I expected something pretty trashed and while it was very dirty, it is a solid home and looks to be just badly neglected. This type of home is going to make a great investment after it’s cleaned up. It’s going to need major work on the kitchen and bathroom but it has great potential for someone who is handy and willing to use some elbow grease.

All in all, a fun day in the Grand Rapids Real Estate Market. If you have any questions or would like to get notified of new or repriced homes or condos, please visit my website or contact me anytime.
