Default Grant Twp/Jeddo area

Looking at a house out that way, on Wildcat road. I understand the issues with living next to farmland and I am ok with that, but how well maintained are the roads in winter? House has well/septic- any problems with the water out there?

Roads are maintained well. Water is hit or miss, could be perfectly fine one area and really hard and rusty 2 miles down the road. Pull the lids on the toilet tanks for your answer there. I'm not too far from Jeddo.

The water is definitely miss, as in missing. Dry well.

it's a 1/2 acre lot with septic, I would need to get an estimate on drilling a new well.

I'm positive I can see the house you're interested in from my front yard. Roads are maintained well, drifting at that spot is a bitch, but they come next day with the front end loaders to push it back.

I live 2 blocks from Gratiot.

Going to look at it Saturday, one of my co-workers lives out that way, but further west. He knows someone that can drill a new well. Realtor told me the people were using 300 gallon totes in the garage for water. The roof needs replacing as well, but it's not a difficult roof to do.

Only half acre, but I really don't want to have to take care of much more than that.

I don't want to take care of acreage, but I also want to be away from the city.

Got the tour today, the house is in decent shape, roof needs replacement badly.

Well went dry about 5 year ago, owners had plumbed 2 300 gal cisterns in the pole barn to the house water supply. Exact location of original well is unknown, but I have a good idea where it is based on where the pipe is coming in from the crawl space. Fireplace in the family room, but the insert is missing. So is the bathroom mirror and light fixture. The stuff people take when they get foreclosed boggles the mind.

Pole barn has some bad siding on the rear, one sheet of T-11 should take care of that. Has a loft that was set up as sleeping quarters at some point, About 8 feet of the floor at rear is still dirt, was used for firewood storage.


House and pole barn are both high up on the property, no chance of flooding- Wildcat road would be 5 feet underwater before it got to the house. Remnants of a gravel driveway.

Talking to the realtor, got the usual 'we have some bids' line, but I am doubting that. Due to the small lot, most people would be looking at it as a rental and would probably move on to something with actual running water.

I like the location, the house itself is nice, and the pole barn offers less square footage than my garage (1040 vs 1600) but more of it is useable, plus there is the loft....

No evidence of pest infestation in the house, all opening to the crawlspace are well sealed.


I need to research this well, the house next door had a new well drilled 5 years ago, about 100' or so behind the house, The same area on this lot, well would be on another lot. Not sure if they tried to redrill in same location.

Off the top of my head, if I could get it for $7000 less, I would be more likely to sign. It's pretty cheap now, but I like cheaper, lol.
