We want you to think of this as your home and it very well could be if you are relocating to this wonderful town. We are a retired couple who are about to embark on new life experiences. We want to see other parts of the world and enjoy time with our children and grandchildren. We’re hoping this home will be the perfect location that you are looking for. There are so many advantages to living here. The educational influence of MSU on the community, the high ranking East Lansing public schools, the vast cultural influences and events, a diverse population, an array of public amenities and services, just to mention a few of the reasons why this is a great place to live. This home is centrally located. It’s easy to get around by walking, biking, and if you don’t drive there’s a bus stop down the block. It’s situated in a quiet neighborhood that offers many activities to stay active and learning. It’s so close to MSU that if you teach or work there in any capacity, you probably will want to come home for lunch sometimes and maybe enjoy a quick snooze. We have a well used backyard that has seen many changes over the years and it’s a great place to practice ball with your young kids or barbecue with friends. The front porch is great place to sit and watch the world pass by. We want to know that our house is providing a haven for another family or individuals who are coming here to pursue their dreams or contribute to making the world a better place in their own way or thinking that this town would be a great place to raise kids. It is all that, and more. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to ask us any questions about the area or this property. We would welcome the opportunity to talk with you.

I am looking for help while I am away

I would like help with mail and deliveries

We will forward our mail, but occasionally if any personal mail arrives for us we would like you to send it to us and we’ll reimburse you for the mailing costs.

I would like help with plants or garden

There are some perennials in the front and back yard that might need some extra care during a dry season. There is a hose hook up for watering. If you like to garden, we would love some weeds pulled every now and then. Planting more flowers is ok too

Comments: Since it snows in Michigan, we would need the front pathway and the front entryway to be cleared of snow. Also the sidewalk just in front of the house according to city ordinance.
