Real Estate Blog- For Buyers

Since non-distressed sales make up about half of all sales in North Oakland and Lapeer Counties, below are the 5 most recent blog posts I wrote about buying "normal" or non-distressed home listings (not short sales or foreclosures) in Oakland County MI. For a complete list please go to my buyer blog at http://SoutheastMichiganRealEstate.Wordpress.com and click on the "buying NON distressed homes" category. Or simply click on this link for posts covering topics such as the purpose of the home inspection, what is an earnest money deposit, why you need title insurance, what are seller concessions, etc.

My buyer blog at http://SoutheastMichiganRealEstate.Wordpress.com is a pretty complete resource for all aspects of purchasing a home in Oakland County Michigan with articles covering how to write an offer, the home buying process, how to figure your new taxes after purchase, market conditions for various areas including my predictions about future market conditions. And of course it is a pretty complete resource for all that is involved in buying a short sale or foreclosure listing.
