WHEN THE OCCASIONAL NORTHERN MICHIGAN GETAWAY ISN’T ENOUGH, MAYBE IT’S TIME TO TURN VACATION INTO SOMETHING MORE PERMANENT.
You buy more than just property when you invest in the Traverse City area. You acquire a sought-after lifestyle that delivers an impressive return on investment.
The Wolverine Heights neighborhood, located along the back nine of The Wolverine, the Resort’s Gary Player signature golf course, offers custom-built homes as well as prepped lots. The established Arrowhead neighborhood, along the Jack Nicklaus signature course, The Bear, features single-family homes with both new and resale options. Both neighborhoods are popular with year-round residents, as well as those seeking a larger ‘getaway’ home loaded with amenities. Real estate around the Resort offers something from every taste and budget, from custom designed homes to affordable condos. Many condo owners also choose to list their unit in the Resort’s rental management program, earning additional revenue.
While buying into the Resort lifestyle makes sense, especially for retirees - Money Magazine and USA Weekend rated Traverse City in their top places to retire list. Immersed here in Traverse City’s pristine natural surroundings, small-town charms and energetic lifestyle, those who choose to settle here are usually making the most of every day and each season.
