hastings mi homes for sale

Hastings is one of the areas I feature that isn’t a part of Kent County, although it is still quite accessible to Grand Rapids. Hastings is a part of Barry County, and ironically, it’s the only city in the county. Although due to its relative closeness to Grand Rapids and the bedroom communities of Kent County, the lifestyle you will find is comparable. Like many of the area’s subdivisions, Hastings has an interesting background. The city became official on March 11th, 1871. Much of the city evolved around the Barry County Courthouse, which today still dominates downtown. The courthouse, its annex, and the downtown area were all erected in 1893. In fact, the Barry County Courthouse is one of only a handful of Michigan’s 19th-century public buildings that still serve their original purpose. As a result, the city grew slowly and intentionally surrounding the downtown epicenter.

For those who value community, and strong historical roots, there’s a lot to be enjoyed in Hastings. The architecture and the history of downtown, make for an interesting and unique setting that continues to be a point of interest today. As of 2019, the population of the city was 7,311. This number is not too far of a jump from the 2010 census, meaning the growth in the city has been consistent but far from exponential. The typical ongoings of small-town America. Nevertheless, Hastings offers a gorgeous backdrop for its residents, and you’d be hard-pressed to find a more captivating location than Hastings on a temperate autumn day walk when the leaves are changing. Despite its relatively low-key atmosphere, Hastings MI homes for sale still have immense allure for those interested.

The Historical City and Houses for Sale in Hastings MI

In 1836, three entrepreneurs by the names of Dibble, Kingsbury, and Kendall bought approximately 480 acres along the Thornapple River. They purchased the land from Detroit baker Eurotas P. Hastings.  The three entrepreneurs leveled the area into lots, and naturally, a community arose in its path. The first paper, The Barry County Pioneer, began publishing in 1851. Ironically, another newspaper was established in 1856 called The Republican Banner.  Today, the Republican Banner still exists, although it’s now under the name the Hastings Banner. At the time of its incorporation, the city housed a modest 300 residents. Hasting has grown quietly since then with only a few plateaus.

Hastings is comprised of 5.28 square miles, and the Thornapple River runs through the city from east to west. It is relatively isolated as the county’s only city. However, there’s definitely something to be said about all the county’s services being located in one compact region. Not to mention, Grand Rapids and all its comforts are a mere short drive to the northwest. Additionally, those who purchase homes for sale in Hastings MI have the luxury of decent proximity to all kinds of attractions from Grand Rapids to Lake Michigan and even Kalamazoo.  For those who want to live in an area adjacent to Grand Rapids or Kalamazoo, but don’t want to pay the high urban prices, Hastings is an ideal choice.

Small Town Charm and The Nature of

Houses for Sale Hastings MI

As your agent, I will help you decipher which communities of the greater Grand Rapids area might be a fit for you. Despite the technicalities that separate Hastings from Grand Rapids, the friendly, approachable, and lively characteristics of the larger city are felt in Hastings. If you’re interested in a peaceful little town, with its own storied history, Hastings is an oasis of its own amid the lush landscape of Michigan. The community in the area is also very active, despite its size. In fact, since 2013, every year downtown Hastings hosts the annual Barry-Roubaix cycling event, which has grown to attract over 3,000 participants. That kind of camaraderie will appeal to those who value a strong community backbone and enjoy events and activities at a city level.

I make it my top priority to get to know my buyers intimately and match them up with homes AND neighborhoods that show promise for creating a happy equilibrium.
