This week we received a very good indication for our little neck of the woods. The population in Ottawa County increased for the first time since 2004!!! Article attached, but what this means to me is that housing sales are going to continue to improve this year. More and more of our factories and Employers are hiring and therefore more and more people will move here to get work. This is very very good news!! Ottawa County is the bright spot in Michigan. How good does that feel?
