The Real Estate Market in Grand Rapids, MI

We are in a strong seller’s market in Grand Rapids, and the entire West Michigan area right now.

During each showing we will talk about what the sellers of that home are looking for in an offer and what the neighborhood trends are for pricing.

When you’re ready to make an offer, we’ll work to make sure it stands out from the crowd in this competitive market.

Terrible Photos - Not all photos are equal for online listings. We may send you listings that match your search criteria but have terrible photos. Trust us on this.We once sold a home in the height of summer in which the photos made the home look like an actual haunted house - no joke- because of the angle of the photo. The home ended up being a perfect fit for our clients AND appraised for nearly $20K more than the purchase price!In that same thought, some photographers have a camera effect that makes the home look a certain way and when we get in the home it won’t look quite the same as the photos.Remember, an agent’s job when marketing a home is to get you to want to see it in person but we end up with all sorts of variables with photos.

Let’s Go Beyond Terrible Home Photos

We know you’ve seen the terrible cell phone photos of homes online.

We have too. 

Not every home listing has the best photos and we may send you listings that match your search criteria but have terrible photos.

Trust us if we send you homes with bad photos – it often means less competition on offers.
