It’s no secret: The housing market is HOT in West Michigan. MLive.com reports that the region’s real estate market, ranked No. 4 in a recent survey of the nation’s hottest housing markets by Trulia.com, saw 13,593 single family homes exchange hands last year, a 3.7 percent increase over 2015!
In 2017, with housing inventory continuing to drop to record lows as eager buyers continue to enter the market, the local housing market had only 1.6 months of inventory available this year, down from 2.5 months in 2015, according to GRAR.
Local builders should then continue to be pleased indeed throughout 2017, as there continues to be a strong demand for housing and new home construction. There were 1,088 single family housing starts in 2016 in Kent County, and 933 in Ottawa County, with higher numbers expected in 2017.
