Lowell Michigan Real Estate Market Report ~ April 2009
Lowell Michigan is located on the Flat River just east of Grand Rapids, MI.
It has really grown in the last 20 years, in many ways. Lowell has a great
school system, a thriving business community, a lively arts society, and
is one of the best kept secrets in Kent County.
These are the statistics for home sales in the Lowell School District.

Absorption Rate for Lowell Listings is 17.48 months for the
current housing inventory. If no other homes enter the market, it
will take 17.48 months for the current homes to sell at the current
rate of sales.
Lowell Homes that are priced competitively are selling and selling
fairly quickly compared to the greater Grand Rapids area.
As you can see by the statistics, the homes that have their price
per square foot under $80 are seeing the most activity. There are
quite a few foreclosure or short sale homes which are bringing
down the average sales price and square footage rates lower than
they might normally be, but both average list price and average sold
price are up from last months stats.
Some sellers have retired from the market and will try again soon,
filling an already saturated market.
They might find a better buying market, but price is still king.
Today's buyer is looking for a well priced bargain in great condition.
