I'm going to try an answer your question about going to work. I'm not sure where you work but I'm sure you know the I-75 corridor is always jammed going north after 3:30 pm and jammed going south after 7:30 a.m. If you work in Troy and live in Troy you still have to deal with traffic. I have a son who works for Samsung near I-75 & Crooks exit and he lives in Orion Twp. He tells me even with traffic it takes him about 20-25 minutes to get home (but he avoids Lapeer road). I also have a daughter that lives in Oak Park on Oneida (I helped her find & purchase the home) so I am very familiar with that area as well. You live, and probably work, in the city where you will most likely be dealing with rush hour traffic but the benefit is that there's lots of activities and interesting places to go minutes away. You will like living in Troy, great schools, great shopping, wonderful places to eat and tons of 4 lane roads to get people in and out of the area! Troy has a community center that is impressive. I share my time equally as a buyer's agent and also a listing agent. If you'd like one agent to help you sell your home and find you your next one I would be happy to help you find your next home. My office is located on Big Beaver close to Somerset Mall in Troy. I've sold and listed homes in the Oakland county area for over 25 years and I've learned that the key to a successful relationship between agent and buyer/seller is trust. I would welcome the opportunity to gain yours!

I am both an investor and an associate broker. I own houses in Oak Park and would like to buy more. I might be interested in buying your home. Please contact me with more information about your property such as number of bedrooms, number of baths, if it has a basement and/or garage and what area of Oak Park it is located in. Also since I am a Realtor, I can help you find a house in Troy.

There are many factors involved. The biggest is going to be timeline. Make sure you chose a realtor who is going to really listen and help you plan. It is very important! I have assisted many clients with this same situation. There are many things that need to be discussed for example occupancy, target dates, if buying a home is contingent on selling this one.
Feel free to contact me and we can discuss any questions you may have.
Feel free to give me a call or send me an email. I will be happy to assist you in both the sale of your existing home and the purchase of a new home.
Have a great evening!
