The Cereal City Real Estate Connection: Bronson, Michigan

Bronson, Michigan

Bronson, Michigan is located in Western Branch County, about 35 miles south of Battle Creek.  The Bronson, Michigancommunity was named after Jabez Bronson, settler and tavern keeper. The small community of just over 2300 people surrounds their lives, as with many rural areas around the local high school. Bronson, Michigan

However, in Bronson, Michigan the local school spirit goes a little farther than just the occasional flag or sign in the yard.  In Bronson, Michigan the local municipality has changed their entire street signs sign to reflect not only the school colors, but also the mascot. 

The high school website defines the student enrollment to be approximately 660 students, with an average class size of about 20.  Despite the appearance of a small community, Bronson, Michigan's pride runs strong in the community. 

In 2009-2010 their local varsity high school football team won the District Championship, and in the same year the Volleyball team won the State Championship.   Not bad for a small community.  In addition to the street signs as one drive through Bronson, Michigan one cannot help but notice the fire hydrants as well.  Yes, of course, they too are painted with the same team colors! Bronson, Michigan

In 2009 there were 65 homes sold in the Bronson School District, with a median home sales value of $49,900.  The highest home sale of the year in 2009 was $200,000.  Bronson, Michigan is mostly a farming community with agricultural fields, and large parcels of land outside of the downtown district. 

Despite the rural location, Real Estate values, although declining


 in recent years, appear to be leveling off in this community, perhaps largely due to the USDA Rural Development first time home buyer loan program. 

Bronson, MichiganThe USDA Rural Development first time home buyer loan program allows for a buyer to purchase a home with 100% financing provided the location qualifies as a ‘rural property' according to the USDA official maps.  Bronson Michigan and the entire County of Branch qualify for this program, which has perhaps helped real estate values in the community. Bronson, Michigan

Michael...A nice bit of localism!  I love the fact the community painted the fire hydrants and street signs the school colors.  That is demonstrating maximum support!
