The Williamsburg, Acme, Elk Rapids Real Estate market is gang busters in regards to pricing.  Currently pricing levels indicate an increase in unit price of 16%, 1st half 2016, average sales price of $215,514.  1st half 2017, average sales price of $268,391.  The pricing has increased dramatically and most likely due to insufficient inventory in popular area neighborhoods. 

That being said, my Kalkaska Real Estate sales have really taken off the past 2 years.  As I go over the buyers I am currently working with, there appears to be another strong desire to live in the Kalkaska area.  Traverse City prices are somewhat out of reach for a segment of our population.  Folks are finding that the amenities Kalkaska has to offer exceed their expectations.  2018 could be another good year for Kalkaska Real Estate.  

If you would like an update Market Monitor of your area or just want your real estate sold for the best price possible, in a professional controlled manner,  call me.

Dear Rick, thank you very much for selling my house. We have been trying to sell it for 2 years. When it expired again we were thinking it would never sell. If we were rude when you kept calling on us after it expired, we are sorry! I know you understand, here's a gift from us to you. We hope you like it! Thank you again!

Rick, I don't know how you did it, but you did it. The place was on the market all summer and my listing expired, then I hired you and you sold it. Thanks for dealing with all the issues, I am impressed! See you in the spring! Thank you very much! Art Hall
