Thinking of buying a home in the metro Detroit area of Southeast Michigan? There are a lot of amazing towns, suburbs, and even cities in the area… so how do you know which one to choose? Here are five great reasons you should consider buying a home in Novi, MI!
You get access to TWO top cities in Michigan—Detroit and Ann Arbor
Take a 30-minute drive to downtown Detroit to discover a diverse world of big-city business, sports, or entertainment. In fact, it’s one of only 13 cities in America to have at least four major league sports teams!
You can also take a 35-minute drive in the other direction and hit Ann Arbor, a thriving city of arts, festivals, and culture, its own world of small-city excitement and entertainment.
But it’s got a whole lot of great things to offer right in town
Big-city access isn’t the only reason buyers and residents choose Novi. There are so many things to enjoy right here in the neighborhood, like plenty of shops and restaurants (big and small), outstanding schools, lots of amenities and services (like healthcare and libraries), and even big businesses (like ITC Transmission, Novi Energy, and Patrick Energy Services).
Plus, though the homes are beautiful and the neighborhoods are safe (35% safer than state average, actually), home prices are still fairly affordable.
And the small-town entertainment is awesome
You don’t have to make a trip to Detroit or Ann Arbor to have a little fun. You’ll find plenty to do right here in town. Like shopping and dining at Twelve Oaks Mall or the Fountain Walk outdoor shopping and entertainment complex, movies at the luxurious Emagine Theater, or live performances at Novi Civic Theater. There are also outstanding events, like Sugarloaf Art Fair, Fire Up Festival, the Great Lakes State Fair, and local farmers markets. And don’t forget all the parks and scenic outdoor spots, such as the 10 miles of trails at Lakeshore Park on Walled Lake.
Plus, home values are terrific
Maybe you’re convinced that Novi is a great place to live or even that you should move here. But why buy a home? Because home values sit at $306,700, 92% higher than the state average. (Not to mention, the median income is over $80,000, 73% higher than the Michigan average). In fact, home values in Novi have gone up 6% in the last year, and they’re predicted to rise another 2.6% this year. And that means NOW is the time to buy!
Novi is so great, in fact, that it’s rated among the best in Michigan
You read that right. The best in the state! And we’re not the only ones who think so. Movoto listed it at the #2 Best Place to Live in Michigan and Niche.com rated it at #9. WalletHub even named it the #4 Best Place to Raise a Family. It’s not too surprising though; after all, its motto is, “Quality of life… is the way of life.” And it’s a motto this little town more than lives up to!
