Need a reason to move to Midland? We have plenty!

Midland, MI, located in the central area of the state, is a wonderful community to call home, with several attributes making it stand out not only in Michigan but also in the country. It captures a small-town feeling and friendliness and combines it with plenty of opportunities for recreation, dining, and more that could be associated with a larger city. You'll also benefit from the area's other important qualities, such as a relatively low cost of living and a high degree of safety.

Our REALTORS® share some of the best reasons to buy a home in the area and move to Midland:

  • A thriving arts community
    From art to theatre to dance, you'll find a wide variety of opportunities to experience the local arts scene as well as strong public and private support for the arts. Midland Center for the Arts is the hub of the arts community, providing a huge variety of opportunities at one venue. It has two museums, two performance venues, and multiple art studios while also hosting classes and performances in many types of arts-related disciplines. In addition, the arts are supported through organizations like Public Arts Midland, which supports projects like public murals and the Art Seen Festival, and Creative 360, which hosts summer camps, the River Days Makers Fair, and more.

  • Plenty of places to be active
    If you love to get outdoors, experience nature, and live an active lifestyle, you'll have a lot to get you moving in Midland. To get started, head to the Pere Marquette Rail Trail, a 30-mile paved, flat trail with scenic views, where you can bike, hike, inline skate or even cross-country ski. Or venture through 19 miles of trails by walking, running, snowshoeing, or cross-country skiing your way through amazing views and diverse ecosystems at Chippewa Nature Center.

  • National acclaim in several different categories
    It's not just Midland residents who think their city is fantastic - national media are singing the town's praises as well! Midland has received acclaim from a variety of sources, including USA Today, for being the #2 Safest City in the U.S. for 2021 and the #2 Most Budget-Friendly City in Michigan (and #31 in the country) for Homeowners with a Mortgage for 2020. The city has also been honored as being one of the best places to raise a family.
  • Home to a popular landmark  
    Midland is home to The Tridge, a three-legged wooden footbridge that's become a popular destination for locals and visitors alike. It has a central pillar that supports three spokes that lead to St. Charles Park, Chippewassee Park, and the Farmer's Market and also spans the Tittabawassee and Chippewa Rivers. You can walk, run, bike, skateboard, or in-line skate on The Tridge, which is also home to seasonal evening concerts as well as holiday light displays.

  • A cuisine for every taste
    Local restaurants help give Midland a unique flavor, with options ranging from simple yet delicious salads and sandwiches to pastries and elevated dishes served at a French bistro. You'll find cuisines and atmospheres to match your cravings and preferences and will soon be making return visits to your favorites. Some of the more popular options include the casual Cafe American or the more upscale Cafe Zinc, which is ideal for special occasions. Other local favorites include Basil Thai Restaurant, which is well known locally for its authentic made-to-order Thai dishes, and Gratzi, which serves Italian dishes with a fresh, modern approach.
