THIS WOULD BE A GREAT HOUSE FOR WMU MEDICAL STUDENTS and RESIDENTS or WMU STUDENTS OR GRADUATE STUDENTS
There are many medical students who just matched to Bronson or Borgess hospitals in Kalamazoo for their residencies. There are also many WMU medical students who will be coming to Kalamazoo to complete their medical school education. We as a community look forward to the Medical Students and Residents who will make Kalamazoo home. The Veenstra Team has helped lots of new residents settle into houses that they purchased in Kalamazoo. Last year we helped Orthopedic Residents, ER Residents and Pediatric Residents purchase housing near the hospitals and WMU in Kalamazoo. The house at 1130 Eldridge is a great house for residents and medical students to consider purchasing. Two residents last year purchased a house and then got a room mate who was also moving to Kalamazoo to share the house and help pay the mortgage. A few of the people we helped purchased their first homes as newlyweds. It is actually much easier and inexpensive to purchase a home to live in than it is to rent a home. The rental market in Kalamazoo is tight. There are not many homes available for rent. There are some apartment complexes, but most of the residents and students we talked to were ready to settle into their own home instead of continuing to live in rented apartments or houses.
The house at 1130 Eldridge is a great option for several reasons. The house is nice and close to WMU and the hospitals. There are 2 bedrooms, 2 bath and has a great space for studying and relaxing. The price point is great for first time home buyers or parents who are purchasing a home for their medical student or resident children.
The Veenstra Team will provide a free private home search website for any WMU Medical Students or hospital Residents moving to Kalamazoo. We will guide you through the home purchase process in an easy to follow step by step manner. There is NO FEE for the Veenstra Team to represent you as your Buyer Agent.
