Buyer Agent - Eye View: Southeastern Michigan

Our agents work primarily in Washtenaw County as well as some of the suburbs Northwest and West of Detroit which are in Wayne and Oakland Counties. The Ann Arbor market is greatly influence by the University of Michigan, the three major hospitals, and the High Technology companies in the area.

On the far West side of our County closer to Jackson Michigan the market is a bit soft, but in most of our coverage area there are more buyers than there are desirable properties.

Bottom line, this is still a seller's market.

Consumers Beware: "Fake" Exclusive Buyer Agents on the Rise

AVONDALE, AZ,  JUNE 13, 2014 -- Over the last several months, the National Association of Exclusive Buyer Agents (NAEBA) has seen an increase in the number of real estate agents claiming to be Exclusive Buyer Agents in spite of working within a company that takes listings or even taking listings themselves.  Per the industry definition, an Exclusive Buyer Agent never works with sellers and works within a company that does not take listings.  Because an Exclusive Buyer Agent has no inventory to sell, they can work as a true advocate for the buyer regardless of which home is viewed or purchas

Buyer Agent - Eye View: Western DC Suburbs

In the western DC suburbs, primarily Montgomery and Frederick counties, our market is always driven by what happens in the northwest DC market.  This area did not experience the huge numbers of foreclosures that hit so many other parts of the country but values did decline by as much as 50% in some parts of the area by 2008-9 after peaking in 2005.  It’s been a difficult climb back out of the hole but it is happening and we’re seeing prices now that have slowly climbed to about 2003 levels.
