Just doing a brief search from your location at the Drake Apartments, I have found several new homes for sale under $200,000. My office is about 1 mile away on West Main so I am quite familar with the area. I have also been a resident of Kalamazoo for 39 years. If you would like help finding a home in the area, please email me at Mark.Reisterer@coldwellbanker.com. If you would like, you may also visit my website at KalamazooHomeListings.com.
