Cedar Springs – A Hugely Popular North Liberty Neighborhood
Whenever I help buyers with their home purchase it gives me another opportunity to look at neighborhoods in depth. Yesterday I closed on a new construction home in the hugely popular Cedar Springs Neighborhood in North Liberty making it a great time to share what I learned about Cedar Springs along the way.
We all know that real estate is local and just the same as sellers when they list a home, buyers need to know how the market in the neighborhood is doing before they Make an Offer. In Cedar Springs it was quite surprising to see just how popular the neighborhood has become over the last few years – My buyer clients were looking at higher priced single family homes – The median price of single family homes in 2013 was $369,900 compared to $275,249 in 2012. That’s an impressive year over year increase in home prices in Cedar Springs.
Homes in Cedar Springs are not all single family homes, there are also condominiums and zero lot style homes. The lowest priced home listed in the Cedar Springs Neighborhood is a zero lot priced at $224,900, the highest price home is a single family home listed at $659,000. (That will change depending on when you visit the link above).
Benefits of Living in the Cedar Springs Neighborhood
Cedar Springs is located to the North East of North Liberty, just past McCaffey Bridge. Many of the homes at Cedar Springs back out to wooded lots, which I’m sure is one of the reasons it’s so popular with buyers. There’s nothing like deer and wild turkey roaming your back yard to create that warm feeling of living in the country… Even better to know that you can have all that and still jump in the car and have access to all the amenities you need just around the corner with schools, parks, shopping and the Interstate all just an easy commute away.
