Pet Friendly Condos In Grand Rapids

By SVG / February 7, 2012 /

Pet Friendly is a Great Thing! Love the downtown condo lifestyle but worried your favorite pet won’t fit in? Worry no more! There are numerous buildings downtown that are pet-friendly and offer green space for them to play and run around in. Most buildings do have pet restrictions though. These restrictions might include breed type, size, weight, age and number of pets per unit. Most associations are also strict on noise and making sure the building is enjoyable for all. If your pet likes to bark, you might want to make sure it won’t disrupt your neighbors. Here is a list of downtown housing that likes to see you and your pet! 38 Apartments 47 Lafayette Avenue 23 Boardwalk Condos CityView The Fitzgerald Fulton Flats The Gallery Apartments Hillmount Monroe Terrace Park Row Peck Condos Plaza Towers Riverhouse Union Square Please note this is not a full list. If you would like to see what is available in these buildings and others that allow pets, please contact me.

Buy at Riverhouse now before you’re too late!

By SVG / February 15, 2010 /

Just this past week I helped a client buy a Riverhouse condo. I bring many clients through the building, all the while trying to decide what the value is and if they should buy now or wait it out. All I can say is if you wait too long, you will miss out! Last week I helped my client make an offer and get it accepted, and during that same week, they sold 2 other condos. That means the building is over 140 condos sold out of 207. If you’re looking for condos in Downtown Grand Rapids between $200,000 and $350,000 it’s hard to find anything that can compare. Please give a call for your tour of this great building and get some help making your offer. Enjoy the interview I did with Kate Bylsma who is one of the River House Sales Associates.

Park Row Condos Ready For Move In!

By SVG / September 12, 2008 /

  So I took a tour of the Park Row Condominiums in Downtown Grand Rapids last week as they have just moved their first owners into their condos. I have to say I was more impressed than I thought I would be. Park Row Condos seem very well thought out and have some very nice high-end features. So, what are the plusses and minus to Park Row? Well I have to say it just comes down to the lifestyle you want in a condo building. If your looking for the pool health club and extra amentias this most likely will not be the condo project for you. But if your looking for a quiet professional building that is well built, and very well laid out this could be a great alternative to condos like Riverhouse or Fitzgerald. Some of the things I like the most about the way the builder is building Park Row is the choice they give to their buyer. Everything from the flooring, counter tops, and cabinets you get an allowance for which is very genius. Then you get to build out the condo your way as if you were building a home. With 34 total units and…

Downtown Grand Rapids Tours

By SVG / May 28, 2008 /

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,…
