It’s Summer in the City and Grand Rapids is Hot!

Even though we’re still seeing some chilly days, summer has finally officially arrived in West Michigan. Short sleeves and sandals have replaced fleece and flannel and the city sidewalks are alive with foot traffic once again.

With its place firmly at the top of the list of hottest housing markets in the country, Grand Rapids has a lot to offer both new visitors looking to relocate and established residents alike.
