When you sell your home with Lang Premier Properties and upgrade to a new home valued at $250,000 or more, we'll list your home for 1%!

We'll sell your home with our exclusive 1% program and pass huge savings onto you. We're obligated to give the buyer's agent 3% of the sale, which brings your total sale cost to only 4%. You won't find that deal anywhere else.

In fact, most Michigan real estate agents charge a 6% - 7% comission for selling your home, with 3% going to the buyer's agent and the rest going into their pocket. When we list your home with our incredibly low 4%, we're only receiving 1% of the sale value.

Want to know the difference a couple percent makes? Take a look at the handy chart below and see how upgrading with Lang Premier Properties

In a nutshell, borrowers looking to buy in Michigan can get a grant, which will require no repayment of the funds or a second mortgage, for up to 25% of the sale price of the home - maximum of $3,000 (or $5,000 if they are in the military or a veteran).  Funds can also be used to cover the cost of a Mortgage Credit Certification (MCC).

Joy 1We're happy to announce that Joy has had a total of 13 heart-melting puppies! Good work, Joy. 2 unfortunately didn't make it but the other 11 adorable creatures are growing like weeds and seem to be doing very well.

Joy has been phenomenal throughout the entire process and is a loving mother. She seems very peaceful and grateful, which is a humbling attitude to be around.

Make A Difference Rescue thinks Joy is a boxer mix and believes she was impregnated by more than one daddy, which is why the puppies look so different. We've nicknamed the black and white ones "cow puppies" for obvious reasons, and they seem to be a favorite around here. But all the puppies are absolutely precious and we're looking forward to finding great homes for them all.
