Congressman Kildee introduces new bill to revitalize Michigan

Just like the cleanup after a brutal storm, the state of Michigan is attempting to clean up after the recession. One of the hardest hit areas seems to be the housing market which has forced thousands of residents to relocate. As Congressman Dan Kildee explained recently, lost populations in cities across the state have led to an oversupply in vacant and abandoned housing, which in turn is driving down the property values for homeowners in the area.

Vacant GM properties could be assets to new companies some say

There is no questioning the fact that the recession hit many communities hard; but as we've mentioned before, some were hit harder than others. This was definitely the case for Flint which is still trying to recover economically and having a difficult time doing so. It's not for lack of trying by the people in the community, say many experts; it's the difficulty of convincing out-of-state businesses to come to Michigan that's been the tricky part.

Builders optimistic about future of Michigan real estate development

In our last post we discussed new incentives that states are giving to home buyers to stimulate the housing market. Those efforts seem to be helping aid the recovery of home prices and have the added benefit of filling up homes that have gone unoccupied since a foreclosure. As a result, the construction industry has started to gear up for increased activity over the next few years, which may be a good sign for Detroit and the rest of Michigan.
