Downtown Grand Rapids Condo Marketing Update

By SVG / July 11, 2008 / 0 Comments

I just thought it would be good to make every one aware of how the downtown market is moving. Over June and now July there seems to be a big upswing in young buyers looking to buy their first condo. Just this week, I have helped 4 buyers tour through the buildings that are affordable to the first time Condo buyers. The most popular and affordable buildings that I have been touring with buyers are: Hillmount 505 Cherry St. SE Grand Rapids, MI 49503 With 10 condos under construction this building is selling very well right now. I have helped 3 buyers purchase in Hillmount over the past month, and have been able to negotiate a discount on the upgrades they wanted. Avenue 23 23 College Ave Se Grand Rapids, MI 49503 With the new pricing on Avenue 23, this building offers a small condo for under $100,000. It is close to Grand Rapids Community College and all things downtown. Boardwalk 940 Monroe Ave NW Grand Rapids, MI 49503 With the pool, restaurant and coffee shop, gym, and game room this building continues to sell very well. With most 1 bedrooms sold, we are starting to see new resale in…

Downtown Grand Rapids Tours

By SVG / May 28, 2008 / 0 Comments

I have been having a blast over the last month taking tours of all the Downtown Grand Rapids Condo projects. With representing my Projects:  Avenue 23 and Fox Loft I get many calls of clients wanting to take a look and also clients looking for more information on other projects. So what I have been able to do is set up tours for each Condo project that attracts them in Downtown. One of the most popular tours is the Heritage Hill tour that I have brought more that 10 clients on over the last month. The Heritage Hill tour includes a walk through of Avenue 23, Fulton Flats and Hillmount. The tour with me allows you to understand the pluses and minuses of each building and allows you to ask questions in a free and fun environment I was able to help 4 buyers purchase condos on these tours over the last 3 weeks. The buyers purchased in Hillmount and in Fulton Flats. It didn’t cost the buyers anything, and my knowledge of the downtown market allowed them to relax and not feel pushed. Other tours that you can take in downtown with me: Monroe Center tour includes: Fox Lofts,…

Tall House Not Being Built. Now What?

By SVG / April 7, 2008 / 0 Comments

So if with Tall House not being built what is the status of the downtown condo market? With so many buildings proposed with price ranges over the $200,000 price point it was only a matter of time before one would not be built. Grand Rapids is growing and will continue to become stronger as more jobs come into downtown. This will also lead to a need of downtown living spaces. But what kind of living spaces are in need is yet to be played out. My thoughts based on the people that are calling me on a weekly basis looking for downtown condos is that the need is for affordable units. This means that an individual can afford on one income and not feel like the need to give up going to a show at the Van Andel Arena or going out for a drink with friends on a Friday night. So what is out there that is affordable and can meet the need of that buyer. In the city core you have: Fox Lofts Peck Building Brickway North of the City Core: Union Square Boardwalk Heritage Hill: Avenue 23 Hillmount 47 Lafayette I see all of these projects taking…

Affordable Downtown Grand Rapids Condos

By SVG / February 4, 2008 / 0 Comments

I was asked the other day: Are there any condos in downtown that are affordable? And if so, where? Obviously, affordable to one person might not be what is affordable to another. But in my thinking “affordable” means under: $150,000 with out tax benefits $175,000 with tax benefits So here are a couple of options for both: With out tax break: Boardwalk is still selling condos at different price ranges. Here’s an example of one that I could get you into that I would consider affordable: 940 – 317 MONROE AVE NW Hillmount has many condos that are still for sale that are affordable.   Avenue 23 is also still for sale with a small boutique feel that is perfect for the buyer looking for function in a smaller space. Monroe Center has 3 Project that are affordable: they are Fox Lofts, Brickway, and the Peck building. More great information to come on each of these Monroe Center condos for sale. With tax breaks there is only one option that is affordable: Union Square is starting to see resales popping up. There are currently 2 units on the market under $175,000 on the 1st and 2nd floors with more to come…
