5 Reasons to Live in Saline, MI

Saline, Michigan is a quaint, small town outside of the big city of Ann Arbor. One of our new neighborhoods, Torwood, is located in the city of Saline.

Saline MI downtown building Don’t know much about Saline? Here are some great reasons to consider moving to this small town of about 9,000 residents:

1. Mill Pond Park. A favorite hang out spot for kids and parents alike, Mill Pond Park has a large play structure and grassy areas for children to play. There’s also events throughout the year hosted at the pavilion, a dog park, soccer fields, nature trails, and more. The park is located on the Saline River.

2. CNN Money named it “One of the Best Places to Live” in 2009. The article stated: “Youth soccer is big here, and many families are churchgoing conservatives. The downtown area has an eclectic array of historic and modern buildings (though no movie theater); it hosts the annual Celtic Festival, Saline Summerfest, and the Harvest of the Arts Oktoberfest.”

3. Proximity to other cities. Saline is a quick 15-minute drive into the larger city of Ann Arbor and a little over 45 minutes from Detroit. Saline is conveniently located right next to US-23, which makes traveling easier.Saline Mill Pond Park

4. Small town feel. Many people choose to live in Saline because of the friendly, family-oriented feel of the town. Saline is known for being a safe area, like many of the outlying small towns of Ann Arbor. Also, according to the city of Saline’s website: “Housing values and household income are well above average for the state and country.”

5. Great small shops, restaurants and stores. Downtown Saline is home to great restaurants, such as Mac’s Acadian Seafood Shack and Brecon Grille. Walking downtown you’ll also experience several unique shops and stores, where “the shop and restaurant owners know your name” according to the city of Saline’s website.

Ann Arbor-Saline Home Buyers: Should You Buy New or Buy a Foreclosure?

Ann Arbor & Saline home buyers looking for a great deal seem to automatically think that buying a foreclosure or bank-owned property is the way t0 go to get a “great deal.” Well, they may want to think again. The foreclosure property may have a great list price, but when you factor in the time and money to get it up to like new condition or to your personal standards, it turns out, in many cases, to not be that great of a deal.

If you knew that they could buy a brand new home for the same price (or less) than a foreclosed home, what would you choose? The new home of course.

Well, here’s the great news….you can buy a brand new home for the same price or less than a foreclosure! Surprised? You’re not alone. A lot of buyers never would have dreamed that new homes have become SUPER affordable.

Let’s take a look at why buying new is better than buying the foreclosed home.

No uncertainty or unpleasant surprises when you buy a new home. With a foreclosure there are always unforeseen problems that pop up, that you will have to foot the bill for. Some of these “surprises” can costs thousands of dollars to fix. Not so with a new home, where you have the latest materials, amenities, and a One Year (or longer) Home Warranty for peace of mind.

Another benefit of buying a brand new home vs. a foreclosure is that new homes are 20 to 30 percent more energy efficient — saving you even MORE MONEY year after year after year.

We at Livonia Builders invite you to check out our latest home offerings and designs to see for yourself what new can do for you. We have numerous homes ready for you to inspect in the Torwood Community of Saline, The Woodlands at Arbor Ridge in Pittsfield Township and Cherry Hill Village of Canton. Or feel free to call us at 734-586-2559.
