Grand Rapids MI Real Estate Market Report ~ Greentree Farms in Ada Township Nov 2008

Greentree Estates is a small subdivision in Ada Township south of

Conservation Avenue and just east of Honeycreek Avenue. The homes

located here are large, executive style homes, usually with acreage sites. 

Most of the houses were built in the 1970's to 1980's.  These homes are

prized for their privacy setting in a heavily wooded, natural area, (you can't

always see your neighbor's house) and the presitigious Forest Hills Public

School System.  This area of Ada Township has rolling hills, covered with

native hardwoods, and is very picturesque. Seidman Park is just across the

street with it's nature trails and cross country ski trails.

 MARKET SYNOPSIS: The middle upper end market has been hit hard

in our area. Many people in this market are downsizing and can't find

buyers for their homes. Pricing is KEY to the sale of your home.  This

report really typifies what happens. Sellers are told the market conditions.

but their home is special. Someone will come along, fall in love with it  and

pay their asking price, or pretty close to it. As you can see, not much activity

here all summer. Selling prices have come down but not enough for buyers. 

The selling price was $ 123 a sq ft for the summer market, the winter market

is usually less robust and fewer buyers can command lower prices. If you are

waiting for a sellers market to come back, it might be 2 years before this

current trend turns around, or maybe not....??
