The June sales numbers are in, and activity continues to be strong. Units sold are up 21% over 2011. Average sales price in June was up dramatically as buyers start targeting some higher priced properties. I have just recently started seeing increased interest in the $500,000 to 1 Million segment that had, until recently, been lagging a bit. June sales volume was up 71% over the same period last year! Year over year sales volume is up 23%. I have 7 closings scheduled in July, and continue a brisk pace of showings with new clients.
I just received notification from New Buffalo Area Schools concerning residency verification for all students this year. The NBAS have received statewide as well as national recognition last year, and they are taking a proactive approach toward residency verification. Two documents, with your name and address, will be necessary to submit in order to fulfill requirements for residency and enrollment. One utility bill, and a lease/rental agreement, or a real estate property tax statement.
There are still some good deals in town, contact me if you are interested in making New Buffalo your hometown, and sending your kids to some of the finest schools in SW Michigan.

"Paul represented us to purchase a home in Union Pier. We found him through his excellent web site. In my opinion, there is no better web site for buyers, looking in the Harbor Country area. His information is comprehensive, accurate and focused on buyers. Paul did an excellent job of listening to us and what we wanted before he met with us for our first and only tour of homes this was important to us because we didn’t want to spend a lot of time looking at homes. We saw 9 homes on a Saturday afternoon. 7 of the 9 homes were right in our price range and met all of the criteria that we had communicated to Paul. The other 2 homes were nice to see as a comparison. In the end, we loved 3 of the homes that Paul showed us and made an offer on our favorite. Within 10 days of meeting Paul for the first time, we signed a contract for our new home in Union Pier. Throughout the next 3 weeks, before closing, Paul was outstanding. He served as our representative at all stages of the pre-closing process. And, he called us periodically to remind us of important issues that we may have overlooked like bringing a certified check to closing. Paul’s knowledge of the Harbor Country area and his complete commitment to his clients make him an oustanding buyer’s representative. We highly recommend him. We’ve been in our Union Pier house now for almost 7 months and we have loved every weekend there, we’re Chicago residents. I’ve bought and sold several homes in the past 10 years and, this is the first time that I’ve liked a broker enough to take the time to write a testimonial."
