Meijer Development delayed

A major development like a Meijer's store has a big impact on home values in the area. it can be a mixed bag, but in general it is positive unless the home is really close to the store.

The link above is an article on the Lyon Planning Commission meeting where the decision was delayed.

We had a Meijers open about a mile from our home a couple years ago and it has made life here much easier.

Another national builder is leaving Michigan

Ryan Building, a builder who had two subdivisions in process in Lyon Township is leaving the state.

The link above is from the Detroit News and it has details.

Lyon Ridge and The Heights at Elkow Farms will probably remain partially developed for many years.

More than ever buyers of new construction need to look at the financial stability of the builder they are considering working with. In this case the builders stock value lost about 50% in the last couple years.
