Yesterday Matt Bowler, the current President of the Greater Lansing Association of Realtors published a list of reasons why there is “Good News” for Greater Lansing.

Some reasons that made the list:

  • 94% of the work force in Lansing is working!
  • Lansing is the only region in the world with two new auto plants!
  • Sparrow Health Systems is growing and building at a record pace!
  • Ingham Regional is constructing a state-of-the-art Heart Center!
  • Cooley Law School is the largest law school in the country!

The list goes on and Matt is right, the Lansing area is growing and good things are happening. 

An item on Matt’s list that pertains to this blog, “The largest selection of homes in years is a major benefit for the buyers.”  INNW?

Currently in Lansing there are 1,583 homes for sale under $200,000.  That’s a lot to choose from.  Lately I’ve been working with several 1st time buyer’s looking for homes in the $100,000 to $125,000 price range.  In that price range there are 371 homes for sale in Lansing.  With all these homes to choose from there is something for everyone. 

Here are a few examples of what you can buy in Lansing for about $125,000 (click on the picture to find more details on each home):

I’m not the only one who noticed that East Lansing is young and single.  After I wrote “East Lansing isn’t the Best, but it is Young and Single” I noticed RealView posted a similar article.
