Grand Rapids Market Talk


Alan Beaulieu Addresses the Grand Rapids Economy

Grand Rapids Real Estate Market A few weeks ago I attended a “Survival Strategies Summit” put on by the Grand Rapids Association of Realtors for its members. It was a very informative and encouraging afternoon. One of the speakers in particular, a Mr. Alan Beaulieu, a senior analyst from the Institute for Trend Research, spoke about the national and international economy. 

He focused on what the economy was doing, what people can do about it, and how to know when economic recovery has started. The topics Mr. Beaulieu covered included the housing market, economic stimulus packages, taxes, the stock market, and the future of Medicare, Social Security, and U.S. competitiveness in global markets. He used many charts during his presentation and responded to questions from members of the audience.

In mentioning Grand Rapids, one of the things Mr. Beaulieu touched on was the the Medical Mile and the vision of Grand Rapids and how we should be used as a model for the rest of the country. He is right. We hear a lot of talk about how bad the market is but I am getting as many inquiries about Grand Rapids real estate  and Grand Rapids condos from my website as I ever have and there seems to be quite a few relocation queries about Grand Rapids. Things have changed to be sure, but homes and condos are selling.

This is a good and hard-hitting video from Alan Beaulieu and if you have the time, I highly recommend watching it.
