The condo market in the Hudsonville School District changes widely from month to month. As is usual, the inventory was up thisApril and will begin to decline as the spring and summer progress. In a comparison of condos for sale in March of 2011 there were 38 units for sale while this March there were 20 units for sale.

For the sales that took place and actually closed the following information may be helpful to you:

Ave. Days On Market: March 2011 Sales: 89 March 2012 Sales: 30
Ave. List Price March 2011 Sales: $125,000 March 2012 Sales: $125,000
Ave. Sale Price March 2011 Sales: $106,000 March 2012 Sales: $105,000

Sold/List Price % March 2011 Sales: 94% March 2012 Sales: 88%

These figures point to a more active market in that our average days on the market have decreased rather significantly and properties that are priced appropriately and show well are selling. While market time has decreased, the list prices and sale prices on average have remained stable. This would indicate that we are no longer seeing a decreasing of property values but rather a stabilization.

Having said all of this, it is important to note that each condo neighborhood is different and the supply and demand varies within each one. An informed real estate professional should be able to give you timely and helpful information for your situation whether it is for buying or selling.

Land Contracts are very hard to find these days. A Land Contract can only be offered by the seller if he owns the property free of any mortgage that has a "due on transfer of title" clause on it. Since virtually every mortgage out there has this clause, the seller would have to own the property "free and clear". Most sellers who own property "free and clear" don't wish to sell on a land contract and tie up their equity in the home. This is why these types of properties are so hard to find.

For renting, I would check a few sources. Locally, we have an MLS rental database you can check here:

Also, MLive occaisionally has rental properties you can lease out (see link below).

Your best bet is to monitor the local papers in the FOR RENT area and keep an eye out for RENT SIGNS in the area you want to rent. Often times, first contact is key in getting a good rental home. Good Luck!

Yes you can get a mortgage with a low credit score of 670. Please understand however, that this is not a good credit score. A good credit score is 720 or better, in fact a credit score of 749 is where mortgage products begin to get exciting. Why not work on your credit and improve your credit rating first through credit education and then select a mortgage product that is right for you and your family. Then you go and locate a property that is right for you?
This way you set yourself up for success for the long term. I have blogged here about ways to boost credit scores, I hope you find the information helpful. Good luck!

Your best bet is going to be to take advantage of teh first tiem free meeting with a lawyer and get some advice on someone who knows Michigan law. The first thing you can do is ask the debt collector for a fax number, fax over a letter requesting they do not contact you be telephone at home , work and cell phones. that wiol first get you some peace and quiet. Then seek advice of an attorney, also check on your state websites, use google to try and researh the statutes there in MI. If no luck call your attorney generals office or a state 1-800 help line that can point you in teh right direction. good luck working things out ... more
