Maybe you would like to buy Reed City MI real estate, but think that you are only dreaming, because of past credit issues. Maybe you are trying to sell Reed City Michigan real estate and tired of waiting….and the payments are killing you.

In both cases, Reed City MI real estate investors like us can help.

First, a bit about the area…

Reed City is located in the southwest corner of Osceola County at the intersection of highways 131 and 10. Within an hour’s drive of Grand Rapids, Traverse City and Midland, it is “close-in”, but still provides a “small-town feel.” For the outdoor enthusiasts, two of the major trails in the Rails-To-Trails system intersect in Reed City. Rails-to-Trails is a country wide program which converts unused railroad tracks into comfortable paths for hikers, bikers, horse-back riders and snow mobiles.

The Pere Marquette Snowmobile Club maintains and signs the trails in the area. They plan to use the soon to be constructed Reed City Railroad Depot for meetings and events. Reconstruction of the depot is part of the city’s plan to develop the downtown area, attract more tourism and thus improve the value of Reed City, Michigan real estate. Similar plans have been successful in other small towns and cities throughout the country.

Currently the median price for a home is Reed City is $69,500, much lower than in most areas of the state. Reed City MI real estate is often advertised as “country living”. Many properties include five acres or more. Some have barns and are ready for the horses.

Most people realize that buying is better than renting for their long-term financial future. But, because of problems with their credit, many people cannot qualify for traditional financing.

With the lease option program (aka rent to own) offered by experienced Michigan real estate investors, homeownership can be closer than you think. If you are currently employed, have some motivation and a few thousand you can afford as a downpayment, you can qualify for our unique program.

Changing employment opportunities in Michigan left many people without a job. Whether a regular paycheck is coming in or not, the bills don’t stop. Even one or two late payments can negatively affect a person’s credit score. Once the employment situation is corrected, the credit score does not automatically correct itself. If your credit has been bruised, you are not alone in Michigan.

In some cases, a person’s credit score is not a true indicator of their “credit worthiness”, but it is the only factor that many lenders consider. Many responsible people got hit by the bad economy in Michigan. These are good people who want to buy a home and are sick of renting but don’t see a way out.

But we have the solution. In a unique system called the Locator program we can put you into a home on a rent to own basis and you can begin to build equity and own your own home. Bad credit is not a problem because you don’t need bank qualifying for this program.

The Reed City Michigan real estate listings are appealing for many reasons. The low prices, the large lots, the country atmosphere, the large number of outdoor activities, etc, etc…but, even if you are more interested in another area of the state, the lease option program that we offer can work almost anywhere.

It is highly likely that the Reed City MI real estate values will increase over time. If you begin now, with a lease option, you can watch your investment grow and add financial security to your future.
