The good and the bad about Zillow and Trulia

Everyone loves to search Zillow as a means to check up on the real estate market, see what’s out there, or even get their home’s value. And we get it, it’s easy to use and has great filters, but there are a few catches.  As REALTORS® we get so many clients sending us homes from these sites and many of them are already under contact (having an accepted offer) or sold. Clients are really excited for what is out there and leaves us, as agents, to give them the bad news.
When looking to learn the value on your home through it's Zestimate, it can sometimes be very exciting to see, however, they are not always a good representation of what the market value of your home really is. Zestimates are calculated using public and user submitted data that can change daily and don't always accurately reflect the market conditions in the area. What to do to get a more accurate value of your home before you sell: contact a real estate agent for a Competitive Market Analysis (FREE) or contact an appraiser (potentially costly).
Zillow and Trulia are great places to start your home buying/selling process, but as one of the biggest investments of your life it is important to get the best information on the market from a local real estate professional. Some great online resources with more accurate information on properties are and our own HomeWaters' website makes it easy to search by area, price, and home type, but the unique feature is the ability to search by body of water, just with a click of the lake or river. Ours is the only site with that capability. So jump on over to our site to see up-to-date listings and please contact us with any real estate needs or questions - we'd love to help in any way we can.

Call Clare or Blake at 231-714-4787 or 231-994-3763 for a complementary market analysis, whether you're ready to sell or buy - we're here to help.

Equestrian Estate or Hobby Farm Property

The small town of Rapid City is surrounded by some of the most amazing inland lakes in northern Michigan, most notably Torch Lake, famous for its crystal clear Caribbean turquoise water. This quaint and idyllic village is a step back in time to a lifestyle that eschews the trappings of a 21st century pace and encourages a slow-down. Just a hop, skip, and jump to the communities of Elk Rapids and Traverse City, these and other points not far away afford access to some of the finest restaurants, wineries, hiking and biking locales, kayaking/canoeing waters, and so much more.

If you're planning to attend the Great Lakes Equestrian Festival (July 4-30, 2018) held annually in Williamsburg, MI, schedule a showing of this outstanding property, located less than 20 minutes away.

The two-story home is loaded with amenities such as granite tops throughout, home office, game/exercise room, multi-level high-end finishes, and an enormous custom kitchen, all within an open concept ensuring everyone feels connected.  The expansive kitchen, dining and living rooms look out to the heated swimming pool and recreation areas. The main floor has a master suite with a well done private bathroom with jetted tub and ceramic tile floor. Lower level has changing rooms and showers, a work out room, full kitchen facilities, game room, and separate quarters with full bath and a separate set of stairs to the heated garage and workshop area.

The property features 10 acres of mostly open land with lighted tennis courts, soccer fields, perennial plantings, and multi-level decking. The scenery is breathtaking with wide, open meadows, distant hardwood forests, rolling countryside and neighboring pasture and stable.  The adjacent 50 acres is also available for sale which is ideally setup as an equestrian estate or hobby farm property.
