Kentwood Michigan Top Best Buy Homes July 2011

Kentwood Michigan Top Best Buy Homes July 2011

A list of the TOP Best Buy Kentwood Michigan Houses to buy,

based on $80-$90/ per square foot.   Price per square foot is a

great leveler, if two similar homes are listed at similar prices, their

price per square foot and amenities should be similar.

The price should reflect the interior finish of the  home. For example,

if the home has marble tile, new windows, new mechanicals & a new kitchen,

this would be more per square foot than a home that still has pre-1990’s

fixtures, decor and/or is in poor or tired condition.

Kentwood has been hit hard by the real estate downturn,

propelled by foreclosures and short sales.  Short Sales are

extremely difficult for most home buyers to consider as a

purchase due to timing.  Please keep in mind the time alone

[2-9 months] of negotiating with the banks makes it difficult

for some buyers to consider.  Foreclosures are “somewhat” easier

to purchase but many are sold as-is, so funds for home repairs and

improvements are crucial.

The FHA 203K loan will allow you to roll some home

improvement costs into your home loan. If you have been

considering a Kentwood home purchase, ask us about how

this loan can work for you.  Interest rates are still at record

lows and inventory is very affordable in Kentwood.
