Buying a home in Vicksburg, Michigan can mean you are covering quite an area. I have sold several homes in the Vicksburg, Michigan area and most all are rural properties with some acreage.
The best loan program for first time home buyers buying a home in Vicksburg, Michigan is the USDA Rural Development loan program. It is a special loan program with a low interest rate, and requires zero down-payment. It also allows for the seller to cover a large portion of the closing costs if you can get their agreement to do so in the offer.
This is one of the better strategies for buying a home in Vicksburg, Michigan as it frees up any saving for your move and getting established in the home. Rural Development loans also allow for certain types of repairs to be rolled into the loan, as well as new appliances if needed.
Vicksburg covers a wide area including the Village, parts of Schoolcraft Township, Pavilion, Wakeshema and Brady Township which is mostly a rural area. Vicksburg is located just south of Portage, in Kalamazoo County, near Sunset Lake.
Buying a home in Vicksburg, Michigan is a good move if you want to be close to Portage
and accessible to Kalamazoo, and it also gives you a taste of the county living. There are other lakes in the area, such as Pickerel Lake, Thrall Lake and the larger Indian Lake, if you are interested in lakefront property in a rural setting.
