Hastings secured their playoff spot 2 weeks ago in their 2nd to last regular season game.

The Saxons then battled illness with school being canceled for half the week, then went to face Ottawa Hills. The Saxons did just about everything right in the first half which secured them a strong lead of 36-14 going into half time.

The Saxons came back to win it with a score of 52-42 and an amazing 530 yards rushing. With this win the Saxons became OK Gold Conference Runner-Up while the Conference crown went to Caledonia.

The Saxons will go to the playoffs and face Byron Center who is overall 8-1.

The game time will be announced Monday.

Current Conditions include LONG DELAYS!!

In Barry County today more than ever home sales are taking an average of 2-3 months to close. In September alone there were 45 properties sold in Barry County. Of those 45 properties there were 22 that were either short sales or foreclosures.

In September 49% of property sold in Barry County took on average 2-3 months to close.

It is imparative that if trying to recieve the First Time Home-Buyer Credit that you have a home picked, financing ready, and an offer submitted by the end of this week. While Miller Real Estate can't guarantee you will recieve the credit, we can assure you that we will work our hardest at closing the deal by November 30th.

If you are in the process of buying now or are soon going to dive into submitting an offer please remember that on a short sale or foreclosure the banks are controlling our closing date. They usually have multiple parties approving offers and that alone could take up the bulk of our 2-3 month window.

While this can be frustrating we do understand your concern. The Federal Government is changing their regulations with Banks daily and the Banks are struggling to keep up with those changes.

Thanks and Let Miller Real Estate solve your real estate needs!
