The Advantage of a Retirement Community in Today’s Hot Real Estate Market

The West Michigan real estate market is on fire. Houses are selling within days, often over asking price. For retirees considering a move, this seller’s market provides a unique opportunity to leverage a hot real estate market to sell for top dollar and reap the many benefits of moving to a retirement community like Clark. Now is a great time to strike while the iron is hot. The following are just a few of the advantages of selling your home and moving to Clark:

Get Top Dollar For Your Home

According to, the median home sold price was $270,000 in March 2022, trending up 13.3% year-over-year. Grand Rapids was named one of the top 100 places to live in 2020 according to In 2021, Grand Rapids also ranked as one of the 100 hottest housing markets in the country. It is a seller’s market and houses are going quickly and above asking price. Right now is a great time to get top dollar for your house!

You Don’t Have to Worry About Lack of Real Estate Inventory

While it is currently a seller’s market, if you are looking to downsize by buying a smaller house or condo, you’ll have to contend with a lack of inventory and end up paying top dollar. When you move to Clark, you can take advantage of the top dollar you receive from your home sale and instead enjoy all the perks of living in a retirement community.

Take Advantage of the Benefits of A Life Plan Community

Clark is a Life Plan Community which comes with its own unique benefits, something you won’t find from purchasing a house or condo. A Life Plan Community is a community with the added promise of lifetime housing for residents. This allows you to “age in place” no matter what happens next. As a Clark resident, you will always have a home in our community, even if your financial resources are depleted through longevity or illness. Think of it as having peace of mind for you and your loved ones. Should your needs change, you can rest assured you’ll receive the quality care and support that you need. You initially pay an entrance fee, of which a portion is refunded when you leave your Life Plan home. You will also pay a monthly fee which varies depending on the home you choose and other services you may receive.
