Forest Hills Michigan Top Best Buy Forest Hills Homes

(Ada-Cascade) to buy, based on price per square foot.

Price per square foot is a great leveler, if two homes are

priced similarly they should be very comparable in amenities.

These homes might need major repair work done, such

as new kitchens and baths, roofs, new plumbing, electrical &

other major mechanicals.  They may have dated decor,  an

odd floor plan, or additions/add-ons that are not what most

people are looking for.

Spring buying season is off and going well in Forest Hills,

55 sold homes and 54 pending sales in the last month.

Average sold price  = $ 315, 638


Pricing seems to have stabilized in Forest Hills School District.

If you are willing to do repairs and update a home, there are still some

good buys at historically low interest rates, though rates and mortgage

requirements are rising.  The homes in the most up-to-date condition

sell the fastest, as most buyers do not want to do repairs or updates.

WARNING: Some of these homes may be bank owned foreclosures,

short sales and not habitable as is or available for a mortgage

in present condition.

Thanks for sharing.... I'm always interested in the Grand Rapids area. I was born in Port Huron and Managed a Real Estate Office in Traverse City for a while.
