"Milford – Featuring a Ton of New Development"

When I lived in Farmington Hills, I would make a point to go run trails at least once a week at the parks in and around Milford. These are beautiful parks where you are nearly guaranteed to see deer, swans, dragonflies and turtles. I also used to take my dogs to the dog park there in Wixom. Well, this city exploded with development in a matter of a couple of years. Don’t get the wrong idea though, it is far from being cluttered. It used to be that residents would have to go into Novi for restaurants, shopping, etc., but Milford has a lot to offer now. There are great stores, restaurants and a few nice bars.

Milford is where you live when you don’t want neighbors so close that they can see in your windows. Most houses are on a substantial amount of property and if there are traditional neighborhoods with houses in neat rows, I’ve never seen them. Housing is a little on the expensive side, but the surrounding areas are as well.

There are private and public schools here, all of which are outstanding, and there are about seven colleges and universities within driving distance. Milford is a city I wish I had bought a home in years ago while there was nothing there. This is definitely an area where real estate will continue to appreciate for many years.
