After the mortgage meltdown there were very few new construction homes being built.  But as of 2014 we are seeing many new construction homes and subdivisions popping up all over metro Detroit.  You will find vacant lots being bought, and old homes being torn down in areas where the community will support a more expensive, bigger home.  Areas like Bloomfield, Birmingham, Grosse Pointe, and on many lakes you will find older smaller homes on larger lots being torn down to make room for a new homes with all the latest ammenities.  If you are looking for a new construction home give us a call.  We can help you walk through all the nuiances of new construction home buying.

So what type of Southeastern Michigan home are you looking for?  I feel that besides getting a mortgage pre-approval and the loan officer telling you what you can afford to have to feel comfortable with the total payment of taxes, insurance, principal and interest.  Remember you will always have expenses of maintaining your home.  Furnace repairs, new windows, a new roof may be an expense that may come up in the years to come.  So size and price are going to play an important part in your choice of your Southeastern Michigan home.  Sometimes because of price and what you really want in a home you may have to adjust where you live in the area.

Feel free to browse through my Moving to Michigan website.  There you will find photos and community information about many of our top Southeastern Michigan cities.  I want you to find a home in a safe city.  A city that will only have random crime.  What I mean by that there are no gangs.  No drive bys, no having to have security guards at the gas station to protect you from being robbed.  A city that is safe for you and your family.  I want you to live in a city that has good schools.  Not cities that have graduation rates of 50% or lower.  Those are horrible cities to West Bloomfield Schoolssend your kids to go to school at.  I want your children to be prepared for college and for life.   We have so many great communities that have school systems like that.  Those are the towns that home buyers want to move to.  Good schools usually help the home values.
