Homes & Neighborhoods

graphicWith a diversity of lifestyles and an ever changing topography, the Benton Harbor and St. Joseph communities are home to an array of architectural styles ranging from log cabins at lake side to large contemporary estates. Home buyers will find everything from Victorian gems on brick streets to nouveaux homes in gated communities. Whether you prefer a simple ranch along a ravine or a rambling country estate, Realtors are at the ready with a cornucopia of choices. According to the Southwestern Michigan Association of Realtors, home sales continue to increase year after year. graphicThey attribute that fact to the simple reality that in Berrien County, you can buy twice the home with twice the view of nearby communities, particularly when considering lakefront homes. For instance, the Realtors group reports that the median price of a home in our communities is $89,348 compared to more than $150,000 in suburban Chicago for the same size and style of home. If the charm of yesteryear captures your fancy, we offer a wealth of brick streets and turn-of-the-century mansions awaiting your loving touch. Apartment prices are just as affordable. According to a 1994 ACCRA study, the average rent paid for an unfurnished, two-bedroom apartment in the area is $484. Options range from a studio to three-bedroom space, with rates lower than $700 a month for even the most elaborate.
