President’s Message

                      WELCOME TO 2012
                        Already there is a lot of speculation about what we
                      will experience in the coming year. A quick search on
                      the Internet produces projections on sports, weather,
                      and trends in social media. There are predictions on
                      the future of the economy, commodity prices, stock
                      prices, the rate of employment, interest rates, and
                      GDP. Of course there is also all sorts of anticipation
                      about the coming national election, the results it
                      will produce, and what it will mean to our economic
                      future. Add to all that the end times predictions of
                      the Mayan calendar, and 2012 proves to be a very
Tom Paarlberg         interesting year.
2012 GRAR President     There is also a lot of speculation about the real
                      estate market for the coming year, and those projec-
                      tions are all over the spectrum. This week, GRAR pre-
                      sented the comparative activity report for 2011. The
                      numbers are looking up. Residential transactions
                      were up 2.4% in units closed, and up 5.7% in volume
                      closed, as compared to 2010. Add to that a 3.1%
                      increase in average sales price and it appears that in
                      the Grand Rapids market, things are headed in a posi-
                      tive direction. Good news!
                        As ambassadors of the real estate market, this the
                      kind of good news that we need to be sharing with
                      our customers and clients. In fact, we need to be
                      sharing it with the whole community if we want to
                      encourage more people to get involved in buying
                      and selling. In my 36 years in business, never have I
                      seen real estate more affordable. Never have I seen
                      more upside in potential value appreciation. And
                      home ownership compared to renting has never
                      been a better value proposition.


                      With that message let’s all make it a great 2012 for real
                      estate in Grand Rapids.

lenders; 10 million homeowners are underwater (owing
more on their homes than the homes are worth); and
untold millions who want to offload their homes either
can’t or are trying -- and struggling -- to sell.
   And while nearly everyone who pays for the place they
live in has experienced some impact from the real estate
recession, it looks like one thing remains insulated from
damage: our belief in the value of homeownership.
  Surprisingly, the people who you would expect were
the most emotionally and financially scarred by the
foreclosure crisis -- homeowners who have lost their
homes -- still cling tightly to their belief in the value of
homeownership, according to the results of a Yahoo!
Real Estate study that polled 1,500 housing consumers,
including more than 400 foreclosed homeowners.                 Source: Yahoo! Real Estate Home Horizons 2012 survey of 1,500
