Livingston County Michigan real estate market update

How is Livingston County real estate doing you ask?  Like most of the Metro Detroit real estate market homes are selling!!!! And sometimes selling in a matter of days!!!  That is the good news, the bad news is that Livingston County home prices are way down from the highs of 2003 and 2004.  In some areas homes have lost 50% of their value!!!

If you look at the statistics for real estate in Livingston County Michigan you will notice that that number of sales from 2008 to 2009 are relatively the same.  There have been fewer Livingston County homes sold.  But the big difference is that the median sales price has gone down.  Much of that is due to the fact that the higher end homes over $300,000 are taking longer to sell.  As you go up in price fewer and fewer homes are sold over $500,000.

Livingston County real estate that is priced under $100,000 is selling.
