Buying in West Michigan

Getting Ready to Buy?

You’ve come to the right place

Hey, Congrats.

What an exciting adventure you’re about to go on!

I’m sure you’ve heard, we are in a stabilizing real estate market here in West Michigan.

While it’s still technically in a seller’s market, the hyper-appreciation that we’ve seen the last two years for pricing is beginning to slow for our region making it less competitive for buyers.

Our Locally-focused Agents use neighborhood search tools and great relationships with other Realtors to find you the best buying opportunities for what you are searching for.

Whether you are looking to move up, move into the area, or downsize we would love to sit down to discuss your goals and what buying in this market looks like!

First Time Buyers + Relocating Buyers

There are loads to consider when buying your first place or relocating to a new one.  The first question though may be WHERE to look. 

We created a Buzzfeed-style quiz as a helpful tool to discover which neighborhoods around West Michigan might suit you based on your lifestyle and budget.

A few notes to get started:

  • Some lenders specialize in different loan types.  If you do not currently have a relationship with a lender, we’d love to introduce you to one based on what type of home you are searching for.  
  • Magic Camera is real.  When you are searching online some photos look better than others.  And sometimes the photos don’t show what a home is really like.  Don’t discount the home if the photos aren’t sparkly.  That could mean opportunity for you.
  • Meet with an Agent early in your decision making process – even if you aren’t moving for 9 months.  
  • Our Local Experts can give you information on what to expect in the market AND get you connected to trust service providers to make your buying process as seamless as possible.
