Traverse City, arguably the best town in Northwest Michigan, is absolutely beautiful. With the beautiful rolling hills and the boutiques, restaurants, bars, and galleries on Front Street, it's easy to see why this town is not only a great town to visit, but live in. Take a drive down M-22 or M-31 and you are caught in awe. Paddleboard on east or west Grand Traverse Bay and feel like you are on the coast of California rather than Michigan. You get that wholesome community feeling that you just don't get in other parts of Michigan and the United States. There are economic pitfalls, however, for anyone planning to move to the area. Home values have skyrocketed year-after-year. Traverse City is predominantly a service oriented job town as it is what would be considered a "vacation town." This makes things difficult and has caused issues for locals in the service industry that want to rent or buy homes. With the skyrocketing values, many are getting edged out. It is very important to understand the home market in Traverse City before you plan to move. There are options, but it is highly advisable to contact a reputable Realtor prior to making the move. Do you live in Traverse City? What are your thoughts on the economics? Perhaps it's time to figure out a way to create more affordable housing!
