Sometimes SE Michigan home buyers come to me without a pre-approval letter.  I ask them first if they have one and some home buyers feel they do not need one when they first start looking.  They feel confident that they can get one.  They have good credit and no debt.   So they feel they can get one anytime.In 2019 most lenders want to see all your documentation before they issue a pre-approval letter.  It does not matter whether you are a CEO or a well know bank customer.  They will not issue you a pre-approval letter based on what you tell them.  The lender has to pull your credit and verify your income based on your pay stubs and w-2 or tax returns.  Sometimes if a buyer has borderline credit or little credit they ask for asset statements too.A lender puts their reputation on the lin...

I had a client that was looking at $199,000 condominium in Milford.  They sent me the zillow fact that the home had sold last year at 145,000.  The condo was owned by a 95 year old women so I am sure the whole condo was in rough shape and dated.  My client and her family was of the opinion because the home sold for so little last year they could make a lower ball offer because of the last sold price.Unfortunately if you are the buyer that could have disasterous results for you if you really want the home.  My client wanted the home.  So I did some research on the condo complex and looked up the same 1st floor condos with the same square footage that had sold in the last year.  I found three of them.  Those condos had sold at $196,000, $199,500, and $203,000.  And 2 of them did not have ...

Here is the most complete list of West Bloomfield lakes in Michigan.  This includes all sports lakes in West Bloomfield and non all sports lakes.  It all depends on what you want to do on the lake.  This list below includes quite a few lakes that I consider ponds but for some reason somebody years ago called them a lake.  They were not any bigger back then, but for some unknown reason they called these under 20 acres bodies of water. The key to finding the best lake home for you is knowing what you and your family want to do on the lake.  Are you content just to look at water?  Do you want to fish?  Are you a kayaker?  Or are you a person that likes to speed around on a power boat?  Do you or your kids want to waterski, surf, or go tubing?  Or maybe you just want to putt, putt around th...

Ethics of a real estate agent plays into the factors whether they are a good W Bloomfield realtor.  One of my clients has been looking for a lake access home.  We saw a beautifully decorated condo in West Bloomfield.  It was gorgeous and as you know staging and decor does sell a home.  It sways the buyers emotions.  My clients loved the condo. During the showing the listing agent showed up and talked extremely loudly to the seller saying they had offers coming in so my clients could hear.To preface the situation Metro Detroit real estate prices have skyrocketed in the last 6 years.   We have had a good real estate market with rising prices for 8 years.  We are still steadily going up with home prices.  We still have low inventory but at some point we are going to have a correction.  Wil...

When you hire a home inspector for your home for sale in West Bloomfield, Michigan, you are often afraid of losing the house because this is the time when the house reveals its secrets. When the home inspection goes on for long, you become disappointed that you have to let go of your dream house.However, why retract the offer when you can come up with a counteroffer? Yes, there might be a few repairs but those can be easily dealt with if the seller agrees to offer you a few warranties or other incentives.Let’s have a look at what this inspection holds for you and your dream house:The first thing you need to do is stop worrying about the home inspection. The inspector will make sure that all problems are noted down. These problems are invisible to an untrained eye, so you can trust the i...

If you have a Michigan relocation in your future because of a job transfer or school here are 10 things you should know about Michigan and relocating to Michigan.  1.  You are never too far from a lake.  You are less than 6 miles from a body of water wherever you move in Michigan.  Whether it is one of the Great Lakes, a river, or inland lake.  If you love fishing, kayaking, or an active water sports person you will love all your choices. 2.)  Michiganders love the holidays especially Christmas.  You can go to the world's largest Christmas store in Frankenmuth or stop into Rochester where they light up the downtown with lights.  Wayne County has a beautiful drive through light display in Hines Park.  When you have snow it makes the Christmas lights even more spectacular 3.  Winters in M...

Cass Lake is located in Waterford, West Bloomfield, Keego Harbor, and Orchard Lake. If you are wondering how one lake can reside in four cities, it's simply because of how large the lake truly is... 1280 Acres! This is a huge all-sports lake. This is one of Oakland County's Largest lakes. There is public access through Dodge Park, so those who don't live directly on the lake are  able to have fun all summer long as well. You and the kids will really enjoy living on this lake.Speaking of the kids, not only will they love the lake life but they will also enjoy their schools. The lake is in Waterford and West Bloomfield School District. During the school year they will make great friends, and then during the summer they can make lasting memories. If you think you'll want to be on this lake...

So you are looking for a good or one of the top real estate agents in West Bloomfield.  I wish to apply for the job of helping you buy or sell a home in West Bloomfield.  When hiring a good realtor in West Bloomfield you will want a Realtor that communicates well and answers their phone.  Believe it or not some real estate deals fall apart simply because they take too long.  I have worked with realtors that take a day or more to get back to you. My latest story is about the real estate agent that sold one house last year and she had another listing this year.  We sent an offer over on Friday at 4 with an expiration date of Sunday at noon.  At Saturday at 8 pm she calls and says sorry but she was busy with her niece's play.  She gives me a couple of counters but no price counter.   I tol...
