Moving to Southern Michigan

Whether you are relocating for work, moving to open a new business, buying your Pure Michigan recreational property, down sizing, starting your family farm, moving to a new neighborhood, purchasing your lakefront retirement home, investing, or buying your first home, Southern Michigan offers a wonderful mix of properties to match your purpose, pace, and pleasure.

In 2016, my wife and I spent a couple of months searching an area that stretched almost 1000 square miles and crossed 5 county lines to find the perfect place to live. From Brooklyn in Jackson County, to Ida in Monroe County, to Pittsford in Hillsdale County, to Saline in Washtenaw County, to Blissfield in Lenawee County, we were on the hunt and willing to travel to find the perfect place to call home. Thankfully, we had a real estate agent that was not afraid of the mileage. After our two month, 50+ property search, we found our new home in Adrian, Michigan and are exactly where we are meant to be.

Now that I am a real estate agent, I want to share what I have learned, and am still learning, about this wonderful area with anyone considering moving to Southern Michigan. With this blog I will spotlight different areas all across this region and go in-depth on the market trends, geographical make ups, popular businesses and areas, and relevant information that will help any prospective buyer go forward with confidence that they are moving to the right place. No one wants to risk the one of the largest purchases of their life without all of the relevant data. That is my role in the real estate profession, to bring knowledge and confidence to the community.

To help to provide as much information as possible, each week I will also host a vlog covering a by the numbers breakdown of four specific areas. During these vlog episodes I will discuss current market trends, how many houses are new to the market, how many have sold, average days on the market, price per square foot metrics, and break these numbers down across different price points. My goal is to make sure I am informing as many people as possible on what is happening all across the area, so that they can be confident on whether or not it is the right time to buy or sell.

The four areas that I am going to spotlight for the vlog series will be;

  1. The M-52 Corridor – This will encompass all areas of central Lenawee County from the state line up to southern Washtenaw County.
  2. The US-23 Corridor – This will encompass all areas of eastern Lenawee County and western Monroe County.
  3. The US-127 Corridor – This will encompass all areas of western Lenawee County and eastern Hillsdale County.
  4. The US-12 Corridor – This will encompass the areas of southeast Jackson County, northeast Hillsdale County, northwest Lenawee County, and southwest Washtenaw County.
