It’s Still a Great Time to Buy a Grand Rapids Home

Grand Rapids Real Estate The Grand Rapids real estate market is still chugging along. Many were hoping that the Fed’s $8000 Tax Credit incentive would be extended again but it has ended. Not to worry though, if you held off, it is still a good time to buy a home in Grand Rapids. Sure the extra cash wouldn’t have hurt but there are still several good reasons to buy and there are plenty of deals to be had for first time home buyers, downsizing buyers, move up buyers, empty-nesters and investors.

Grand Rapids real estate is still a good investment and here is why.

  1. Grand Rapids is a great place to live. Lots of exciting things are happening in town with the Medical Mile being developed.
  2. Interest Rates: Interest rates are still relatively low and are expected to hold for a little while longer.
  3. Less Competition: In the weeks and months leading up to the deadline, we were quite busy. It has slowed down some so the odds are less that you will find yourself trying to outbid someone else for a home or condo.
  4. House Values are still low: That’s right, values are low and are going to stay like this for awhile yet.

So it is still a good time to buy a home in Grand Rapids. If you have any questions about the market, the home buying process, or if you have a  home  to sell, give me a call or contact me anytime.
