My name is Michael Delaware. I am an author and a Realtor. This blog covers my crazy points of view, observations and the Southwest Michigan, Battle Creek Area Real Estate Market
We are still up and down in temperatures here in Michigan, but the tulips are finally starting to become more prominent and emerge from the ground.  To me this is the sure sign that spring is really here.  Winter has snapped back a few days this week with icy wind and cold that has robbed us agai...
On Wednesday morning I was out on the road early and captured this moment of natures beauty.  There was a shot I wanted to get a few moments later which would have shown a half moon shaped sun upside down, but I was driving and there was no where to stop.  So it must remain in my minds eye, and u...
Want to know what daily life is like in the Northern Mid-West? Particularily in winter?  Well Mother Nature bestows random work upon you without consulting your schedule, and shoveling snow becomes a routine part of life.  Here is my driveway taken just 2 days ago after a recent shoveling project...
I have a facination with old barns.  To me they symbolize endurance of americana in a very deep way.  Some are old and weathered, like this one in the photo.  It makes you wonder on its age, and the people who built it.  They always seem to last longer than residential houses, and some stand alon...
I work at home in my office most of the time.  My dog Blue is my constant companion.  He comes and goes around the house, but his favorite spot to return to is at my feet under my desk. Sometimes I lose track of him, and think that he is not there... and then I move my feet to find out quite the ...
Yesterday I had to venture onto some slippery back road, and even got mired in a icy area at one point and had to get out of the car and knock the ice off my tires to be able to move.  Yesterday, however, the skies were blue despite the cold.   Today however, we are in another blizzard here in So...
I have spoken to many homeowners in recent years who are of the mind that they should pull their home from to market during the winter months of December through March.  Many wait until Spring and throw their house into the listing pool with so many other sellers.   It makes sense in a way. With ...
In the wake of the Super Bowl where the Seattle Seahawks defeated Denver Broncos 43-8, there are some interesting lessons one can learn by examining what happened.  Many watchers of the big game were perhaps in shock to see Peyton Manning and the Broncos perform so poorly and be beaten so resound...
I thought I would share my last photo taken in January 2014, as a sort of tribute and parting with a difficult month weather-wise.  I took this photo after I had to trudge through knee deep snow to do a property evaluation on a foreclosure for a customer.  I was looking back at the way I had come...
I was traveling along a snow covered back country road a few days ago, and I looked up and there was a group of deer standing in the road about 100 yards ahead of me.  I slowed down, and grabbed by camera but they had moved off into the woods.  As I approached where they were, I could see them in...
