Oakland & Wayne County Real Estate Update 2/10/2021

Let’s talk about what is happening in our local real estate market in Southeastern Michigan.    I wanted to give you a quick Southeastern Michigan home update.   If you did not know….. the majority of Metro Detroit real estate is a seller’s market.  There are so homes currently for sale.  It is normal in Southeastern Michigan’s winter months for home inventory to be low.  There are several reasons for this.  Many  home sellers do not list until the weather is warming up and the sun is shining.  Seller also sometimes pull their homes off the market in the late fall and then put them back on in the spring.  More homes sell in the spring and summer months when it is warm outside and kids are out of school.

So right now Oakland County and Wayne County have very limited home inventory.  Add in the increased demand from buyers because of the low interest rates you have a red hot Metro Detroit home market.  The good and even decent houses are flying off the market due to the low interest rates and low housing inventory.  So what are the keys to getting a home?

1.)  First of all you need to get automatic updates of homes coming to the market from a realtor.

2.)  Second you need to look at these auto updates as soon as you can.  You can’t be looking every other day.  You must look at them every day.  In fact if you can get an alert or auto email as soon as they hit the market it will help.  If you look at the email you got 2 days ago you will probably find that the best homes are gone.

3.)  The third action you should be taking is calling me to go and see any home you like as soon as you get them.  Again if you are waiting a day or two to call me to see a home then you are going to miss out.

4.)  Last but not least don’t wait a day or two to put in an offer.  Take your time to think about it, but think quickly.  If you are a person that needs time to think long and hard about a purchase this year (2021) may be a tough year for you to buy.

So bottom line is look at your emails or search online every day.  Then get out and see them immediately.  A good realtor will get you out to see them.

Feel free to call, or text me to see any home in Oakland, Wayne, Livingston, Washtenaw, or Genessee County.  (248)310-6239

In my potential move to the Detroit area, Russ showed me all the neighborhoods that met my criteria in the couple of hours I had between the end of my meetings and catching my flight. He is incredibly knowledgeable about homes, schools, neighborhoods, cost of living, demographics, economic housing trends, and the intricacies of relocation. He is a consummate professional and very responsive, and his experience living and working in the area are invaluable for newcomers. He goes the extra mile and makes you feel at ease immediately. I can’t recommend him highly enough!

I hope this Metro Detroit real estate update was helpful to you.  If you are looking for a full time experience realtor that has excellent reviews give me a call or text at (248) 310-6239.

Russ was a fantastic realtor. After meeting Russ on the lake he helped me buy and sell two homes. I was going to list my home in Waterford so I called Russ over. I asked what I should do at the lowest cost, and the easiest way to get top dollar. The house looked great after I did everything. The house sold quickly and I got asking price. Once the Waterford home was under contract Russ called me when he saw lakefront homes that he thought we would like.  After a few showings we found our Dream home!  Its very impressive to find an agent today that doesn’t just send links and hope you call them.  He didn’t rush me or push me to by a house.    Now we have a lake home with a big lot, great view, with lots of storage.
