Hello, Welcome to My Website

Hi there, welcome to my website!  My name is Alice Rolfe, I am a full-time Realtor.  I sincerely hope to exceed your expectations and provide you with exceptional service throughout our relationship and I am looking forward to meeting you. 


Please enjoy the following video from our National Ad Campaign.

Professional Interests

I am working with buyers and sellers in Oakland and Macomb Counties with expertise in resale, relocation assistance, new construction, short sales, foreclosures, and leasing.  I belong to two MLS Boards... Realcomp in Oakland County and also MiRealSource in Macomb County.  This is an exciting time in real estate.  I look forward to helping buyers and sellers, assisting individuals and families sell their home, find the perfect home or a first-time buyer reach one of life's biggest milestones.  


Personal Background

Aside from real estate, I have a daughter who graduated from the Michigan State University, "Go Green!"  Prior to beginning my real estate career, my family and I relocated from Columbus, Ohio, where I previously worked in aerospace as a manufacturing analyst in numerical control programming for Rockwell International and also information systems for McDonnell Douglas.  Contracts were completed, offices and plants were closed and an employment opportunity brought us north.  My family and I have experienced relocation first-hand, lived in Michigan for many years and love it! 


Personal Interests

Love the outdoors...what time I'm not assisting buyers and sellers, I enjoy gardening and landscaping, creating beautiful, relaxing outdoor living areas.  It's good exercise yet I find it relaxing.  If I can't be outside, I enjoy watching a history or discovery channel, baking goodies or creating a tasty dish.

Predictions for 2014: Supply Will Struggle to Keep Up with Demand

1.7 Blog VisualWith a dramatic increase in demand for housing expected this year, it will be up to real estate professionals and builders to make sure there is the necessary inventory to satisfy this demand. This will be a challenge for much of 2014.

For a balanced real estate market, there should be approximately 5-6 months of inventory for sale (example: if 100 homes sold last month, we would need 500-600 homes available for sale). Nationally, we are just now hitting the five month level. As the spring selling season begins to heat up, a new wave of housing inventory would have to come to market to keep up with the increasing demand of buyers.

If we couple this seasonal increase with the other dynamics that will increase demand for housing in 2014, we believe that housing inventory could drop substantially. This, in our opinion, is the biggest threat to a full blown surge in sales this year.

Some experts have looked at the recent monthly decline in existing home sales nationally as evidence that a lack of consumer confidence or the increase in interest rates has buyers back up on the fence. However, a closer look at existing home sales reveals that sales remained unchanged in one of the four regions of the country (the Midwest) and actually increased in two other regions (the Northeast and the South). The only region that had a decrease in sales was the Western region (down over 10%).

If it was a matter of consumer confidence or mortgage rates, there would have been a similar decrease in sales throughout all four regions. The fall-off in sales in the West is directly attributable to a lack of salable inventory in the hottest markets in the region.

It is up to the builders and real estate agents in each community to make sure this doesn’t happen.
