Grand Rapids Michigan Neighborhood Real Estate Market Reports - East West Village Jan-Dec 2009

The East/West  Village subdivision off  Ada Drive in Ada Township is

a fairly new development. The new housing construction started in 2005

and is still continuing to date. You can buy a resale home or a new home

in this centrally located housing development.  Near both public and

private schools, East Village is also close to  Forest Hills and 28th

Street shopping areas. The Ada Bike or Walking Trail also connects

this area on Ada Drive with the village of Ada, Grand Rapids, and the

village of Cascade.

East Village is also close to the I96 expressway for easy access to many

different parts of our greater Grand Rapids area.  Large, executive style

homes with many amenities and extras are the rule in this neighborhood.

If you would like to start with a brand new house in Forest Hills,

this may be the place for you to call home.

Market Synopsis: East -West Village Homes are selling, if priced correctly.

Buyers are paying from $115-160/SqFt on the main floors, which is down from

last summer's prices.  New construction is priced higher, so an existing

home should be priced lower per square foot than a new one.

The absorption rate for East -West Village is 8 months, which means

 if no new homes enter the marketplace, it will take 8 months

 for the current home inventory (4) to sell.  This is  high for the Ada - Forest

Hills area, it reflects the higher prices of the homes, even though

they are located in Forest Hills.  Higher priced homes are slow movers

on today's market due to buyer's jitters about further market devaluation.

Market may be a  little slower with the weather right now but it has shown some life recently and should be much better soon.

Terry and Bonnie,

Ada and Grand Rapids sounds like the place to be; I bet that bike trail/walking trail is superb.

Tom, I think it is a great draw for people that don't want to fight with the cars for space on the roads.
