Property values on our Multiple Listing Service (MLS) in 2016 were up an average 8.0%, but not each and every school district in Kent County enjoyed that same rate of appreciation.

See the chart below. Lowell Schools was the front-runner with the average sales price up 20.6% last year to $230,138. East Grand Rapids showed the smallest rate of appreciation with a tepid 0.2% increase but an average sales price of $391,212. Three other districts logged double-digit increases: Grandville at 12.1%, and Byron Center and Kentwood at 10.3% each.
