While interest rates have remained low, values have continued to trend downward. The good news is there were more private owner sales in July than foreclosure sales. Also fewer homes are on the market this year than in 2007 reflecting the fact that many people are sitting tight if they don't need to sell.While the news has been dominated by Olympic coverage, reports about legislation affecting real estate have also commanded a lot of attention.
In summary, The American Housing Rescue and Foreclosure Prevention Act includes provisions to help homeowners keep their homes.Additionally, it provides a tax credit of up to a $7,500 (10% of the purchase price) for first time home buyers. Effectively, it's a 15-year no interest loan with payments of $500 per year.
Bottom line...it's a great market for buyers!

As a former Northville resident and current Livonia resident, I was conflicted about the debate. Mostly, I'd love to see new life given to this beautiful parcel, regardless of whose responsibility it is.
As it turns out, the developer dropped their $100 million lawsuit against Northville Township in exchange for 100 acres of land. Now that the annexation vote is behind them, that agreement can proceed.
Given the big push in Livonia to stop the annexation, I found it ironic to see this sign at the corner of 6 Mile and Haggerty. Hmmm, I wonder who was behind the stop annexation agenda after all?

While radon isn't a certainty in Michigan, there are definitely pockets in the most unlikely places. I've been surprised by high levels (over the 4.0 pCl recommended by the EPA) of radon in some of the homes that have been tested. In one case, it spiked to 70 during a one hour period!
I always recommend my buyers have a radon test done during their inspection period. If radon is found in the home, then the remediation and repair is on the seller's dime and the buyers have peace of mind that it's no longer an issue.
If buyers choose not to test, they not only may be jeopardizing their health but if elevated radon levels are found when they sell the home, they'll be on the hook for remediation.
Better safe than sorry.
