I often get asked by Buyers that are moving to the area, "why is Canton, Michigan a good community to live in"? Anyone with children will want to know about the public schools. Great Schools rates Plymouth Canton School District a 9 out of 10 in their ratings. In addition to the top rated school system, there are three charter k-8 schools and a just announced Charter Canton Preparatory High School that will open in Fall 2014, and several private schools including Plymouth Christian Academy.  Canton, Michigan prides itself in it's township parks and recreation. Heritage Park is the crown jewel with walking paths and a pond. The township has many soccer pitches, baseball diamonds, two public golf courses, a Frisbee golf park, dog park, and a hiking/biking trail along the rouge river. Cant...

Canton residents enjoy a high quality of life in the community. Canton offers everything from top-quality schools and a nationally accredited police department, to a wide variety of dining and shopping opportunities. Add to that, six beautiful community parks, a state-of-the-art community center, two golf courses and a world-class theater, and you have found the perfect place to live. Canton has matured from a small farming village into Michigan's 11th largest community. New residential and commercial developments enhance Canton, as great attention is paid to architecture, building materials and landscaping. However, we also respect our heritage by preserving, and encouraging the adaptive reuse, of historical structures. Sounds great doesn't it? That's what I was thinking so I checked o...

The Detroit Free Press released some welcomed good news for the Metro Detroit Market. Higher prices have arrived for Canton, Plymouth, Livonia, Northville, Westland.... The Free Press reported that in 2012 Metro Detroit experienced the largest increase in home values since the 1990's.. a whopping 13.6% increase.  But every kernel of good news sometimes has some bad news. The Detroit market is still 37% below its December 2005 peak. So we have a ways to go.    If you would like an evaluation and free comparable market analysis done on your home call us today!     Scott Petersen  Realtor and Top ProducerDirect/SMS: 734-776-8355 Office: 734-981-2900 Fax:734-981-6370  Email: spete05@gmail.com Web: www.scott-petersen.comFollow us on Facebook and Twitter.

Ok on my last article  Home Buying process - Livonia real estate tips I went over the general process of buying a home.   So now on this first time home buyer tips on Canton real estate I am going to talk about the home buying time line.  How long does the whole home buying process take?   Lets break it down the home buying process into 4 sections:   1.)  Looking for a home   2.)  Inspection   3.)  Mortgage   4.) Closing   Looking for piece of Canton real estate or Canton home can take anywhere from a month to a year.  It depends on how bad you want to move, your timeline, and how particular you are about the house you want.  As a realtor I can tell if you do not have a timeline.  There is no real commitment to buy or to make a decision because the first time home buyer doesn't  care wh...

If you are buying a piece of Canton real estate or Canton home you may want to know what title insurance is?  How does title insurance protect you when you buy a home.  Every real estate transaction you do with a Realtor in Michigan will close it through a title company. A title company's job is to provide title insurance.  The seller of the Canton real estate will buy an owner's title policy.  The title company researches the public records of the Canton home you are buying.  They look for any leins on the home you are buying.  A lien is a notice attached to your property telling the world that a creditor claims you owe it some money. A lien is typically a public record. It is generally filed with a county records office.  The title company goes through public records looking for liens...

So we have gone over talking about thinking about what you can afford and getting a pre-approval letter....what's next.  It's time to put down on paper and think about what you really want in a house and where you want to live.  If you want to drive a realtor crazy be flaky on what you want and where you want to live. You'll drive the realtor crazy and yourself too.  You both will get frustrated and then it will become an unhappy experience.  So sit down and write down what you want in a house.  Share that with the realtor you pick.  You absolutely need to share your wants and desires with your realtor.  Where do you want to live, how much you want to spend, what are the important features you want.  If your realtor knows what you want they can help you find what you want.  Sometimes I ...

The Canton Michigan fire and paramedic department continually receive national recognition for their training and equiptment, but the news that they actually have special oxygen masks for our four legged friends was news to me. The Detroit Free Press, reported today that "Firefighters in Canton credit a special animal oxygen mask for saving the life of a family’s dog during a house fire Saturday. Firefighters found Skylar, a yellow Labrador retriever, unconscious with labored breathing inside the family home in the 6800 block of Carriage Hills Drive at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, according to a release issued today by the Canton Fire Department. After determining the family had escaped the blaze, firefighters carried Skylar outside, where another firefighter was waiting with a special oxygen m...

The amount of Canton Michigan Homes for sale on the market continues to be low. The most common conversation and questions that I am having with my Buyers is, "Aren't there any more houses to look at?" We find ourselves in an overbalanced market with more Buyers than Sellers. Just as strange as the weather we have had recently, is this strange  real estate market that is unbalanced yet not a sellers market. Home values and sales are continuing to rise slightly in the Canton & Plymouth area, which Realcomp MLS accounted for in the data they released a couple of weeks ago stating: "All sales were up 5.9% and median sale price for Metro Detroit rose by 18.7% as compared to last year". This modest increase in sales and values is positive, but it also points to the fact that Buyers are cauti...

The news for Canton & Plymouth real estate market continues to be look good this spring. Realcomp, the local MLS just released a market report that shows good signs.

Here's a brief preview of other March sales statistics: The median sale price for Metro Detroit rose by 18.7% as compared to last year. Of the 5,606 All MLS sales closed in March of this year, 12.9% (725) were identified as short sales. Average Days On‐Market (DOM) for the entire MLS decreased from last year by 9 days, from 97 to 88.

Another uncertainty is throwing a wrench in several of my Canton & Plymouth Michigan buyers purchase contracts. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have been claiming that their foreclosure sales are exempt from all local taxes, including county and state transfer taxes. Fannie & Freddie are claiming exemption through an argument that they are quasi federal government agencies. However, this argument has been recently shot down by The Michigan Treasury. With the Treasury ruling that Fannie & Freddie must pay the local transfer taxes, many Buyers are left in a state of uncertainty. In the F & F addenda contracts, contain a clause that if they must pay the local taxes the buyer is responsible for this tax. To my knowledge Fannie & Freddy is the only bank that is making Buyers potentially pay these...

Home values in Canton, Michigan continue to firm slightly, early this year. Home inventories continue to be low with only 352 homes on market in both 48187 and 48188. The Bank Owned (foreclosure) inventory continues to be slim, as banks are slow to bring their homes to market after the delay caused by the MERS lawsuit this past fall. Expect Bank Owned homes to start to come to market this Spring, as banks attempt to clear up their inventory. This may cause home values to temporarily fall again.                                                                                  Median Sale Prices Zip          City                        Sales YTD            2011                       2012                       % Change from 1 year ago 48187    CANTON              23                         ...
