Oakland County Michigan Real Estate Homes for Sale

Lake Voorheis - Lakefront Real Estate Sales


Voorheis Lake- Lakefront Real Estate Sales

Voorheis Lakefront real estate sales, Lake Orion Michigan. Private, all sports, 250 acre Lake VoorheisSales in 2009 were pretty dismal with only 5 total sales- 2 of which were bank owned homes (foreclosures) and sale prices ranging from $150,000-$650,000 with a median sales price of $385,000. That's right- someone was able to purchase a home on desirable, all sports Lake Voorheis for the disgustingly low bargain basement price of $150,000. I would say that person made a great investment, even if the house needed a major re-hab.

In 2003 there was only 1 sale below $400K reported in the MLS with sales prices on Lake Voorheis topping out at a tad over a million dollars.

There were no sales on Lake Voorhies in 2010 (at least none reported to the MLS). 2011 was a pretty good year considering the state of real estate prices the past 5 or 6 years. There were 5 closed sales last year with sale prices ranging from $253,500-$449,900- 1 short sale and 1 bank owned home. 3 of the 5 sales were in the $400's with a median sales price of $435,000

Selling- For the "Regular" or "Non Distressed" Seller


Below are the 5 most recent blog posts I wrote for the so called normal seller- basically not a short sale. Negotiating a short sale listing is vastly different than the normal sale- the goals are different. Because of these differences I wrote posts for the potential short sale seller and categorized them as "distressed owner/seller" and the posts for the normal seller are under the category "NON Distressed Seller." You can click this link for a full lists of posts for the non distressed home seller or go to my home seller blog at http://SellingRealEstateInSoutheastMichigan.Wordpress.com and click on the proper category on the right side of the home page.

My seller blog at http://SellingRealEstateInSoutheastMichigan.Wordpress.com is a pretty complete resource for all aspects of the home sale process in Oakland and Lapeer County Michigan with articles covering what to expect at our first meeting, how to price your home, how I market my listings, what happens, step by step, after accepting an offer and much more.

Southeast Michigan Real Estate- For Sellers » NON Distressed Seller

Should I stay around for the showing? Many home sellers in Oakland and Lapeer County Michigan ask this question. You should leave and I should not be there either. For the showing you want potential buyers to be as comfortable as possible. You want them to feel free to express any concerns or dislikes to […]

Home staging your Oakland County or Lapeer County MI home for sale. At one time it was just part of a Realtor’s job to “stage” a home they were listing- at least in the North Oakland and Lapeer areas that I work in. In those days staging had a bit of a different meaning. I […]

Buying an Oakland County MI Short Sale Listing- What to Expect Between what I’ve heard on TV and radio, read and from conversations I’ve had with clients, potential clients, other agents, relatives, friends… I have learned that there are a whole host of definitions for the term “short sale.” And most of them not very […]

Oakland County MI Real Estate A short sale is when the house is offered for sale by the owner (person as opposed to a bank) who owes more than what is owed. Once an offer is accepted, the bank has to agree to reduce the mortgage payoff. Usually some of the leg work has been […]

Southeast Michigan Home Buyer Information » buying NON distressed homes

Is My Listing REALLY Overpriced? It seems lately the explanation that comes with a low ball offer is that the house (my listing) is overpriced. I guess soooo grossly overpriced that your buyer chose it as their favorite. I understand a buyer submitting a low offer trying to see what they can get it for. […]

It doesn’t exist. But that is too short of an answer to make an entire blog post! Unless you have an unlimited budget, and location is no object, your dream home really doesn’t exist outside of your head. The location for the dream home in my head changes often. Depending on how cold it is […]

The Perfect House Probably Does Not Exist Even with the low inventory in North Oakland and Lapeer County MI, I still consider this pretty much  a buyer’s market. Prices have been increasing pretty rapidly, BUT are still quite low compared to peak times as are interest rates. And there are good houses out there, but […]

Oakland County Home Prices on the Rise BUT Housing Is Cheaper When most Oakland County MI home buyers purchase a house they are buying under a certain house payment amount. Many factors go into that amount including home price, property taxes, mortgage interest rate. Your mortgage pre-approval is really an approval for a certain monthly […]

CCS = SALE PENDING Tired of calling your agent with Oakland County homes you find on Realtor.com or on your agent’s IDX site (consumer MLS) only to be told that many of those Oakland County homes are pending? And many of those same homes are still showing as active a month or two or six […]

Southeast Michigan Home Buyer Information » Foreclosures

Buying an Oakland County or Lapeer County Foreclosure? What to Expect Or more precisely what not to expect. Don’t expect to be able to negotiate anything other than price. Think $150 to re-key a door is high? Too bad. There’s no way around it and you won’t get the key at closing. It may be […]

Can A Seller REALLY Enforce That The Buyer Not Resell For A Specific Period Of Time? A lot of the bank and government owned listings specify owner occupied only for the first couple weeks or for the first month. They require the buyer to sign a document that the house will be their primary residence […]

Lake Orion Michigan Foreclosure Listings Are NOT Available For Sale BEFORE Hitting The MLS I am asked multiple times a week if I can let someone know about Lake Orion MI foreclosure listings before they hit the market. When I say “there is no way” I am then often asked about RealtyTrac. RealtyTrac reports foreclosure […]

Am I Overpaying? Is the listing overpriced? What is the house worth? All questions, or variations of questions, most buyers ask when buying a house. They are valid questions with not easy or pat answer. The value of the home depends on your point of view. Webster defines “value” as “a fair return or equivalent […]

Michigan Foreclosures- New Buyer Fee to Consider It is customary in Michigan real estate transactions for the seller to pay the transfer tax- both state and county- to the tune of .86 of a per cent of the sale price. Bank owned homes backed by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have been exempt from this […]
