Due to limited inventory as buyer confidence returned in 2012, inventory was and remains limited. As a result days on market dropped in 2012 and prices are edging up as buyers are finding they need to compete on desirable properties.
Sellers will benefit from the reduced inventory and buyers will be wise to shop early in 2013 to avoid the increased competition of the spring market buyers. Interest rates remain very low and there is still MSHDA credit money available for those buyers who have not owned a home or have not owned one in the last 3 years.
If you are interested in buying or selling a Jenison home, call Sondra. She has been selling West Michigan and Jenison homes for 25 years.
