MID-LAND REALTORS is striving to be your source for REAL ESTATE
information in the Great Lakes Bay Region of Michigan. However, a lot of what

We are also aware that what you need will be different depending on where you are
in the process – buying, selling, renting, up-sizing, downsizing, landlord or property
management. With that being said, we want to talk about the HOMESTEAD

If the home you are living in is your primary home (not a second home, cottage or
rental), the house should be listed as 100% homestead in your tax bills and your
city, township or county online records.
