When a “first” happens while viewing homes – it never gets boring in Macomb County!

October 29th, 2012 · No Comments · macomb county mi real estate market

I, and my buyer clients, had a “first” the other evening while viewing homes in the northern part of Macomb County.  (I’m not going to give the address of this home or otherwise identify it)

The home was new to the market, in the price range my buyer wanted and had most of the criteria met (square footage, lot size, etc).  We rushed to see it, and were pleasantly surprised by the nice floor plan and other amenities.   The other surprise was in the basement:

As we walked down the basement stairs a different odor greet us.  Not a cigarette smoke or musty/mildew smell, but rather one that we didn’t quite put our finger on, at first sniff.  Not until we saw a locked door in which lights were on behind it, along with a motor of some kind attached above the door, and water lines going in to the room, did we realize it was more than likely a marijuana grow room.

I suppose I shouldn’t be too surprised since marijuana for medicinal purposes is now legal in Michigan and it appears that many people are “growing their own” for this purpose.  (Have you noticed all the hydroponics stores popping up in your neighborhoods?)

My buyer clients weren’t put off by whatever was hidden behind the door, but if they do decide to purchase a home that we couldn’t completely view, then unlocked doors will be a must for the home inspection!

I absolutely LOVE what I do.  Each day is a surprise and never boring!
