I keep coming across great deals in our marketplace, and have been sharing them with friends on Twitter and Facebook. I'm going to start posting them here as well, where I can tell a bit more about them.
Prices for homes have taken a hit, and with current mortgage rates in the 5% range, the values are outstanding. Unfortunately for me, I can't buy them all, so I'll share the information. The listings I'll talk about will not be limited to my own inventory. If I see a great deal that is someone else's listing, I'll tell you about it.
I'll start off with a home I just listed for a bank. It's a 3 bedroom, 2 bath 1970's manufactured home on 5 very nice wooded and rolling acres. It has a full basement and a large deck, and is very close to the new Douglas Valley Organic Vineyard Community, where lots alone are offered starting at $129,000.
It's also close to Little River Casino, the Manistee River, Lake Michigan, Portage Lake and Onekama.
This house sold in 2004 for over $100k. It's now available for just $34,900. Here's a link to more information.
