2006 is great for real estate buyers. Rates are in check, the market has been very hot in southeastern Michigan for buyers. Let me take you for a walk through the southern St. Clair County area--the 26 Mile Corridor. Demographics
The Marine City area encompasses and is a part of the 26 Mile Corridor extending east from Palms Road to the Saint Clair River. It includes the townships of China, East China, and Cottrellville plus Marine City proper. There is something to be said about the location, rural charm, and history that lends to the desirability of this unique area. Don't forget to check out the slide show!
Where else in this United States can you go out your front door and be in another country in less than a half hour (only this long because of a possible ferry wait or the drive to Port Huron to take the Blue Water Bridge).
This quiet little town opens its arms to people of all walks of life. Many residents drive an hour or more one way to work so they can come back to peace and serenity of the area. Others work right here in the area, some just a few minutes from their job. This would include those that chose to move their companies to the area as well as those who have started their own companies after moving here. Whichever your choice would be, there may be no better place than the Marine City area to enjoy the AMERICAN DREAM, your own real estate.
There is "prime" industrial and commercial property available in this 26 Mile Corridor area. You will also find that there may be some already established business opportunities for sale that may interest you.
As for housing, Marine city offers a diversity of choice for the new resident. There are classic Victorian homes and many other styles of older homes--all having their own personal charm and character. There are classic ranches and two story homes, as well as modern, newer homes to choose from. Marine City has three condominium developments that were started this year. East China and Cottrellville Townships offer residential used and new construction beginning around $65,0000 for used and $80,000 for new. There is also acreage available offering the ability to have your own home built. Here, acreage sizes range from 150 x 300, about one acre, upwards.
