If you know you'll be in an area for only a year or two, renting is most likely the best option. However if you will be in an area for more than a few years, it might be a better investment to build equity in a home. In 2017, the average cost to rent in Michigan was $1,100 per month. The average mortgage in Michigan was $848 per month. That's a significant difference and as time goes on, you will build more and more equity. As you head into the new year, if you are renting, consider making 2019 the year you purchase a home. Michigan is one of the best states for first time homebuyers! There are no costs with having a buyer's agent and I would be honored to help you find your next home. Call me at 906-236-3750! Enjoy the holiday season and make 2019 your year!
There are so many reasons why it is beneficial to hire a real estate agent to help list and sell your home, but how do you choose when there are so many agents to pick from?

My personal experience can help as well. I have lived in Marquette my entire life and know this county very well. I worked 24 years in local retail prior to starting at RE/MAX and am grateful that past clients from my previous job carried over and they trust me now to help them with their real estate needs. I have met wonderful people and give my best to everyone. I will do the same for you! Whether you know someone who has worked with me or not, I give my all to every client I work with. Additionally, my assistant, Karen Bruce, knows the area well as she grew up in Gwinn and now lives in Marquette. We both do everything we can to meet your needs and help you accomplish your real estate goals, whether that means selling your house or finding your next home.
If you have contemplated selling, Karen and I are willing to get you information that may help you make a decision. We can meet with you and research comparative properties in the area to get you an idea of what your house may sell for. We can also meet you at your house and give some suggestions of things that you could do that may help your house sell more quickly. These are free services we are happy to offer. Whether you decide to list your property or not, you will be more informed and we are happy to help you with that.
Please let me know how I can help you! Contact me on my cell at 906-236-3750 or by email at email@example.com. I look forward to hearing from you!
