ROUND-UP Vol. 04

Here's the latest peek at the national housing market

Community Round-up

The City of Benton Harbor, St. Joseph City and St. Joseph Township came to a unanimous decision to put in motion a plan to revitalize their shared waterfront space along the St. Joseph River. 

The revitalization goals are:
  1. Initiate revitalization of the harbor and adjacent waterfront through community collaboration
  2. Develop and implement long-term, sustainable strategies that maximize the benefits of the harbor and waterfront.

The St. Joseph City Commission reviews the Downtown Vision Master Plan for approval. The Downtown Plan Steering Committee created a  comprehensive 125-page plan to address 5 key goals:
  1. Reinforce downtown’s distinct character and sense of place while accommodating desirable infill development.
  2. Strengthen downtown as a vibrant and active year-round mixed-uses district.
  3. Make getting around downtown easy, safe, and efficient for all modes of transportation.
  4. Leverage proximity to Lake Michigan, the St. Joseph River, Silver Beach, and other nearby recreation and environmental assets.
  5. Enhance the events, festivals, and out-door community gathering opportunities in downtown.
Once approved, a committee will be formed to start implementation of the plan.

Ask Dave

Q: How do you market my home?

A: Every listing gets added to the local MLS - this is the tool real estate agents use to see all property information in their area (active listings, sales history, etc.). I also add every listing to the top real estate search engines: Zillow,, and Trulia so your property is getting viewed by prospective buyers no matter where they search. 

Your property is featured on my personal website and social media sites, as well as our brokerage external and internal sites, so every agent in my office knows your home is on the market. 

For added exposure, a customized ad is created for your property on Facebook targeted to buyers in our market through RE/MAX.
