Macomb County, MI, Metro Detroit, real estate, REALTOR® I enjoy working with home buyers in all areas of Macomb County MI, especially first time home buyers. Born and raised here in Michigan, I am familiar with all areas of Macomb County and St. Clair & Oakland counties.
It appears that the Township of Chesterfield (Macomb County MI) has decided to get in to the "buy a foreclosure - sell it for a profit" business. The Macomb Daily has reported that Chesterfield Township has purchased two foreclosed properties and is going to auction them, hopefully for a profit. ...
In a market where frustration levels are high for both consumers (both buyers and sellers) real estate professionals often take a verbal bashing by not only the consumers, but sadly sometimes by each other.

I've been noticing a strong trend over the last 6 months with home buyers in my area (Macomb County MI) and last months analysis of our housing market verified it all for me nicely.

One of the most dramatic, in my opinion, was the average total days on the market being reduced by 88 days.  That is almost a full 3 months less time on the market to sell you...
  A man that I have the utmost respect for, Bryant Tutas, a real esate broker in Poinciana Florida wrote an article today that I am compelled to share with all of you. It is about a huge problem and dilemma that many of us in Macomb County MI are facing and the banter back and forth between real ...
It was quite a headline type news weekend in the Metro Detroit area, and one  would think with all of the economic problems that my hometown area is facing that I would be a bit more concerned this morning with hard core issues facing people in my area.
