SELLER SAYS

Our home is in a wonderful location, some of the things we really like about the town of Gregory include the many surrounding lakes with easy access for all season entertainment, the quiet wilderness that is accessible through the many local parks and state hiking trails, the spaciousness of the community, the easy access to the local towns such as Ann Arbor, Brighton, Chelsea, Dexter, East Lansing (well, you see the point!). The low traffic, having an ice cream and beer store within walking distance, having caring and friendly neighbors, having the freedom to have chickens and fresh eggs, the quiet nights, the star filled skies, and the tranquility of living in the “country all add to the charm of our home’s location.

Our neighborhood has a nice balance of friendly and outgoing people who like to share a glass of wine or toast a marshmallow over a campfire, but mostly like to give a hand when you need it.

We are surrounded by great restaurant choices that are close by. In Chelsea;  The Common Grill, Los Tres Amigos, and Cleary’s Pub . In Brighton we love the Stillwater Grill, Wooden Spoon, and Buon Gusto. Ann Arbor is full of fantastic restaurants such as; The Earle, Gratzi, and Taste Kitchen. We also frequently visit Starbucks and Panera Bread which have locations in several surrounding cities.

Grocery shopping is easy, one of our favorite places to pick-up groceries is Busch’s Fresh Food Market, where we order online, and simply pick up curbside! We also shop at Costco, VG’s, Meijer, and Kroger, all of which are just minutes away.

We were drawn to this property by beautiful surroundings, plenty of nature, yet still close to the larger cities. We like that the property is on a paved road, which keeps everything nice and clean. Having a paved road but also being backed against hundreds of acres of state forest and the Pinckney Recreational Area is quite a bonus.

People should move to this area because it is quiet, serene, convenient, and very safe. The area draws residents and visitors because of the lakes, recreational parks, campgrounds, and hiking trails. Living so close to so many opportunities truly enhances your quality of life. The opportunity to have a truly unique and beautiful home and property in such a wonderful community is something that you will be thankful for everyday. This community is a perfect place for families!

The 4 Mistakes Pet-Owners Make When Selling Their Homes

Selling a house is hard enough, but selling a house when you have a pet is even harder. A Boston real estate agent recently quoted in TIME relayed a story in which an owner’s cats lowered a condo’s sale price by $30,000. That’s a hefty chunk of change, even if your cats are adorable.

It can be hard to be objective when you’re blinded by love for your furry friends. But don’t get in your real estate agent’s doghouse. Here, from the experts at ABODO Ann Arbor, are four mistakes to avoid.

  1. Thinking You Can Handle the Carpets Yourself
    Sure, baking soda and vinegar might be good enough for you. When Fido gets a little anxious or Fluffy drags a half-pound of litter into your carpet, you might even break out the big guns. Maybe you even invested in a carpet cleaner. But everyday conditions aren’t house-showing conditions. When you put your place on the market, be smart and call in the professionals. You don’t want your carpets to look well-loved, even if they’re clean. You want them to look (and smell) new.
  2. Thinking the Little Things are Normal Wear and Tear
    If you have a dog, you probably don’t even see the scratches on the door. If you have a cat, you’re probably used to a ripped window screen or two. But potential buyers notice those things, and the last thing you want is for them to assume that there’s even more pet-related damage that they aren’t seeing. So fix the obvious damage: Replace damaged woodwork, paint over the scratches, and for goodness sake, take care of your yard. If your lab dug holes in it, fill them. If there are dead spots in the grass, invest in some fertilizer. And it goes without saying: Make sure there aren’t any “gifts” in the grass.
  3. Leaving Pet Paraphernalia Out
    You might think: Maybe my buyer also loves cats. Who cares if there’s a three-story cat house in the living room, or a hairy dog bed in the corner of the dining room? Buyers. Buyers care. Even a clean litter box emits an unpleasant smell, so while you’re carrying out the cat, take the box along with you. Similarly, soggy rawhide bones, fraying tennis balls, and destroyed scratching posts probably don’t send the right message about the condition and cleanliness of your home either.

 

  1. Introducing Potential Buyers to Your Pet
    We get it: Myrtle loves to purr and enjoys scratches under her chin. But you can never predict how a potential buyer will react to your pet, or how your pet will react to a potential buyer. Better to keep your furry friends out of sight for the duration of the tour. Take the dog for a walk. Consign your cat to her crate in the garage or the laundry room. Whatever you do, don’t just lock your pet in the bedroom — after all, buyers will want to see it.

How Seniors Can Downsize When Moving Into A New Home

 

Author: Jim Vogel

After retirement, many seniors find that they’re ready to downsize a bit into a home that’s much easier to take care of. Moving into a smaller place can be a little overwhelming, but it’s often necessary for individuals who need to think about their health and what their abilities will be five or ten years down the road.

It takes some planning and preparation, but with some help from friends and family, you can find the right home for your needs and make decisions about what to take and what to donate, sell, and trash, as well as find financing.

Here are some of the best tips on how to downsize into a new home.

De-clutter

When you first begin thinking about making a move, go through your home room-by-room and take a look at each section with a sharp eye. Are there items that you’ve had for a long time but haven’t used in a while? Are your closets full of clothes you haven’t worn in years? De-cluttering your home will make it easier to start packing; start with a pile for items to donate, one for items to throw away (anything that’s broken or stained), and one to sell. You can have a garage sale before the move and make some extra cash.

For more info on how to get ready for a downsize, read on here.

Get Some Help

Ask friends and family to come over and help you go through your things. This is a great time to give some of your belongings to close family members if you don’t want to take them to the new house; go through jewelry, dishes, and mementos with your loved ones to decide who gets what. They can also help you with moving heavy boxes around, as this is something you shouldn’t do yourself.

Get the Right Financing

Look online to see if you can find special financing for seniors, especially if you have a disability or are considered to be low income. There are different programs for each state, so make sure you’re familiar with your home state’s guidelines.

Look for a Home that Fits Your Needs

Do some research on neighborhoods and homes that fit your budget. Keep in mind that some newer neighborhoods might have a bevy of expansive two-story homes with a scattering of smaller ones, so don’t rule out any one area until you’ve checked it out. One-story homes are often preferred by seniors because they are much easier to get around in and clean than larger homes.

Many seniors make the decision to downsize because they want a home that doesn’t have stairs to climb or a big lawn to take care of. Keep those things in mind when you’re looking, as well as whether there’s a neighborhood association that requires fees every year.

Find the Right Helpers

Finding the right movers for your big day is important, so do a bit of research to see which companies will offer the lowest price. Ask specifically about whether they charge a per-mile fee on top of the flat rate and if they require a minimum amount of work hours. If you have pets, you’ll want to make sure the movers are informed of what type you have and let them know if they should refrain from interacting with your pet.

Remember that this can be a very trying time; any big life change can be overwhelming, so take good care of yourself and remember to ask for help when you need it. With some preparation and planning, you can find the perfect home for your needs.
