Dear CB Woodland Schmidt:
We wanted to send this letter as a testimonial to the exceptional service we received from your agent, Luke Bouman, during our recent purchase of a summer home in Spring Lake, Michigan. Right from the start we knew we were in good hands. Luke’s website of available homes was easy to navigate. Luke took the time to show us over 25 properties on a Saturday and his level of interest in our needs/desires never wavered. Once we found the location and home, Luke fought hard to represent our interests and negotiated several concessions with the seller’s agent. Luke always answered the phone when we called, and acted on our needs in an expeditious and polite manner. Luke Bouman is a true professional and we can guarantee that the next time we are in the market for a home, our first and only call will be made to Luke; I am quite certain he will answer it by the second ring!!!!

The first time home buyer tax credit extension has caused a great stir over the last few weeks in Washington but what many Americans may not realize is that there is a one year extension of this tax credit for those who were service members on in the military during specific dates.
There is a very good chance that if you have been in the Military you could see the $8000 or $6500 tax credit extended.
For those who have been on extended duty it is highly likely that you will see a one year extension of the first time home buyer tax credit. By accessing the site federalhousingcredit.com you can find out much more information about the extension for those in the Military.
By getting an extra year to complete your home purchase you could save a lot of stress and the $8000. Before making any final decisions over the next few days it would be very smart to research as much as possible on the first time home buyer tax credit and know that buying a home is right for you at the present time.

One of the benefits I can provide to my buyers is setting them up on auto-prospect. What that means is that I can email you automatically listings that fit your search criteria. Rather than going to a real estate website everyday I can have any new listing with your criteria, or price change be automatically emailed to you. You will get the information before most Realtor's are even aware of the home. If you would like to get more information on this service please contact me at #616-502-8897.

The first-time homebuyer and repeat homebuyer tax credit extension is coming to an end on April 30th meaning homeowners and homebuyers looking to use the tax credit must be under contract on a home by that date and they must also close on the home by June 30th.
Many homebuyers have gotten into the housing market because there have been low mortgage rates to be had and affordable homes as well. The extension of the first-time homebuyer and repeat homebuyer tax credit, for $8,000 and $6,500 respectively, has also been an added incentive for many homeowners that may have been hesitant to get into the housing market.
Some homeowners were worried about closing costs on a home and the first-time homebuyer and repeat homebuyer tax credit gave them the peace-of-mind that they could eventually get some or all of that money back.
While the tax credit program has helped some homeowners it is, again, nearing an end. Not everyone that wishes to buy a home should do so and a tax incentive shouldn’t be the driving force alone to put anyone into the housing market. Potential homebuyers are cautioned to look at their personal financial situation and make sure they are financially able to afford a home before going forward.
Tulip Time is just around the corner. Check out the video of the Dutch Dancers who perform in Holland, Michigan.
Sellers in the city of Holland are required to have hard wired smoke detectors before they can close the sale of their home.
Below is the information from the city of Holland website that talks about this requirement.
• Hardwired, interconnected, battery back-up smoke detectors are required to be installed in all residential structures within the City of Holland. Point of Sale Ordinance.
• Inspections for smoke detectors are conducted during routine rental inspections, public lodging inspections and at the point-of-sale.
• Failure to comply will result in a civil infraction ticket.
The link below will show some interesting statistics about where buyers are finding their homes. The Internet and Realtors are the top 2 with each producing 36% of the buyers and the paper continues to drop and is now at 2% of all sales. The main problem with the newspaper is that all of the listings are not advertised here. On the Internet you will find all of the listings which are frequently updated. Good thing you found my website!
