Residential building site or remodeling opportunity for sure...possible commercial and/or multi-family. Condos and apartments to the north and south. This is one of the last original structures on Crooks. Built with concrete block to buffer the road noise, this would make a perfect opportunity for the person who wants to make all the noise they can...garage band members, motorcycle flippers all are welcome! Or just dream the American Dream with a potential for a work/live space. Seller and agent will work with anyone who wants to see if this can be commercially developed or turned into a multi-family space. Additionally, a great place to remodel and park your camper or boat. The possibilities are open to the need and imagination of the buyer!

Slightly Less property on the market and Higher Days on Market than we have seen in year. Nothing dramatic but when we see DOM  get a bit longer and inventory a bit slower. Just something to keep an eye on.  The first graph is Days on Market, the second graph is available listings  for sale.

An interesting thing happened when we did this project. We released a series of web videos showing a full demo and home reconstruction on video. The series wasn't scripted. A lot of it was just adlibbed and had zero high end video enhancement. The house that was featured in this video was sold before the reconstruction was even completed !!On that of that the house was even featured on social media and its web site was given a full SEO treatment. This allowed potential buyers to come over and see the property online.The SEO - search engine optimization was key - it allowed prospects to locate the property in Royal Oak, Michigan. This is an idea that is going to be further explored. The potential to fill up spaces using social media in addition to MLS is huge.

This home is completely move in ready! And one of the sweetest house in this price range. The curb appeal and quality maintenance is simply unmatched. The owners have done everything possible to keep this wonderful & charming home in top condition. What I love about it is it sure lives large! This house is simply the nicest of its kind. Plenty of room to build a garage in this over-sized yard, but with Royal Oak allowing overnight parking on the street there is certainly not as much need as the surrounding cities. It features an updated maple kitchen, cork floors, Modern lighting, all newer appliances (yes it has a dishwasher) in the home stay and they are all extremely nice. The bathroom is unbelievably cool! You have got to see it! The finished basement adds a ton of living space and ...
