Michigan is where America still builds things – and Michigan Land for Sale offers the promise that you can build there too.
Michigan is the urban south and the rural north, two separate worlds stretching hundreds of miles from the rust belt to the borders of Lakes Superior and Huron. There are the manufacturing cities near Ohio and Indiana, but there are also the popular vacation destinations of the “Thumb” – long a playground for the upper Midwest – and the glorious wilderness that is the Upper Peninsula. Michigan has more freshwater resources than any place else in the world.
Michigan is a hot rod made from American iron and college football on a crisp Ann Arbor autumn afternoon. Michigan is the rich musical traditions of Detroit from Motown to hip-hop, and the harder rock sounds born the college towns that inspired Bob Seger and Ted Nugent. Michigan’s cities represent excellence in education in Lansing and Ann Arbor. Urban Michigan can be raw or sophisticated, but never dull.
Something about Michigan inspires affection and devotion: if you’re rich, and famous and you hail from Michigan, there’s a good chance you still call it home. And Michigan will always be international: it boasts both one of the busiest border crossings in the United States, and one of the largest Islamic populations in America. People come from around the world to live in Michigan.
Because of its great size, Michigan is many climates in many places. One climate along the windswept shores of the Great Lakes, another in the south lands near Indiana. The Upper Peninsula has more in common with Canada than it does with the Lower 48. The magic of summers in northern Michigan has lured city dwellers from Chicago, and Detroit, and Cleveland for generations.
In the south, Michigan is still manufacturing – and it’s no secret that globalization has hit domestic manufacturers hard. But international trade works both ways, and Michigan’s export sales of merchandise in 2008 amounted to $44.8 billion worth of goods, an increase of over 25% in four years. In the meantime Michigan’s manufacturers are aggressively pursuing diversification strategies and niche markets, while its intensely pro-business state government cheers them on.
In Michigan, the housing bubble burst a full year before the rest of America had even heard of sub-prime lending problems. By 2009 the Michigan based auto industry was in retreat, with only the Ford Motor Company to fly the flag, while General Motors and Chrysler Corporation shuffled off to Washington in search of bailouts. In the marketplace of the real world, though, the darkest days are often the best ones for buyers and investors with a long-term plan and vision for the future. Michigan Land for Sale represents the greatest potential upside for the savvy bargains hunter.
