Brighton Relocation

BrightonYou will probably relocate to Brighton Michigan for one of two reasons.  One is that  you want a more of a semi rural community that gives you some space around your home yet have all the shopping and restaurants nearby.  The other reason you would chose a Brighton relocation is that it is a halfway point between some Michigan cities.  You may have a job transfer that landed you a job in Lansing, or Brighton, Flint, or the Detroit Suburbs.  Brighton Michigan conveniently sits in the middle of all these business centers.  So if your partner works in one community and you work in the opposite direction Brighton may be a community you may want to look at.  If you would like a Brighton relocation guide email me at        

One of my Michigan relocation tips to put down on paper your priorities.  What is most important to you and your family?   Drive time, safety, closeness to churches, shopping, or schools? Brighton Area Schools are some of the best in Livingston County.  The school system and teachers try to engage every student in a quality learning experience, empowering each student to become a thoughtful, life-long learner in an environment of mutual trust and respect.

Another great plus about a Brighton Michigan relocation is that the property taxes in Brighton Township are one of the lowest in Livingston County.  Brighton still retains it's small town charm even though it has grown.Brighton offers many cultural, recreational and social activities. Several state (Pinckney State Recreation area) and county parks (Kensington) are located within a few minutes' driving distance, as are more than 50 beautiful lakes, natural wetlands and golf courses. The state's Brighton Recreation Area alone comprises nearly 5,000 acres of woods, meadows and lakes.

Shopping in BrightonThe cities main drag is Grand River where all the shopping is.  There is a small downtown area is a few blocks in size where many of the great local restaurants are at.  The Brighton’s Smokin’ Jazz & Barbecue Blues Festival is held in the downtown area.  Like so many southeastern Michigan cities they have a farmers market each week during the summer.  South Ore Creek runs through the downtown and they have a nice promenade to stroll along the creek where it has widened out to a pond.   

Is Brighton MI safe for my family?

The median income for a household in the city in 2009 was $47,668, and the median income for a family was $77,105.  This is just for the downtown area.  Remember we talk of the City of Brighton and Brighton Township as one place.  Males had a median income of $48,554 and females have a median income of $30,877.  I would call Brighton a mixture of blue collar and white collar residents.  Brighton's surrounding townships and communities, such as Brighton and Genoa Township, have median household incomes in excess of $90,000, making it one of the more prosperous places in Michigan.  The  Additionally, about 3.0% of families and 5.1% of the population were below the poverty line, which include 5.9% of those under age 18 and 5.2% of those age 65 or over.

I believe that Realtors should treat their clients as if they were family.  So if one of my family was relocating to Brighton Michigan would I recommend it to live in.
