Ada MI ~ August 2008 Real Estate Market Report ~ Adacroft Commons

Adacroft Commons is a popular home market in the Ada area.

Part of the appeal is the proximity of  Forest Hills Central 

5/6 School, Middle School, High School & Ada Christian

School, which are within walking distance. Adacroft is also close

 to the village of Ada and Forest Hills shopping.

It is an established subdivision, being started in the early 1970's

 by E. L. Ladd Builders of Ada, at the same time they were building

in Adatowne.  Adacroft Commons homes were required to have a

 two stall attached garage and a family room, while Adatowne

homes did not.  There is designated common land in the

development that remains heavily wooded and in a naturalstate,

as in its adjacent neighborhood, Ada Woods.   

I have held many open houses in these plats when they were new 

 and sold many of the homes as new construction - to be built.  

We personally purchased a spec home here  in 1976 and lived

 in Adacroft for 5 years before we  built our dream home on 6 acres

 (also in Ada Township).


If you doubt the power of your home as an investment, a 4 bedroom

two story home (about 1750 sq ft) sold for $ 39,900  in Adacroft

Commons in 1970.

The Ada area growth trends remain strong. Ada Township planner,

Jim Ferro states that the Ada population has grown by 20% since

2000. There is a new proposed 80 unit condo site - Villas of Ada

and Stone Falls of Ada - a 210 unit apartment complex, currently

 under construction here. Both of these new developments are quite

 close to Adacroft Commons
