Golf Course Home Sites to Sell at Auction in Southern Michigan

COLDWATER, MI--(Marketwire - September 2, 2009) - Eighteen home sites in Southern Michigan's Blackberry Patch Golf Club community will sell at auction Monday, Sept. 28, with Schrader Real Estate & Auction Company managing the sale.

Sixteen of the sites will sell at absolute auction, with no reserve, according to Ed Boyer, who directs Schrader's auctions in Michigan.

"This will be an unsurpassed opportunity to obtain a beautiful home site along this premier public golf course. And because the course is also an established bird sanctuary, it's one of the best areas around for those who enjoy watching the scores of species that inhabit Southern Michigan," said Boyer.

Most of the home sites are adjacent to holes on the golf course -- several overlooking tee boxes, greens and ponds.

The sites will be offered individually and in combinations. Bidders will also have an opportunity to bid on all of the sites as an entirety.

"This auction will provide an opportunity for individuals who are seeking a golf-front site on which to build their home as well as builders who may wish to build up their inventory for future home construction," said Boyer. "Bidders may also purchase sites that are adjacent to each other to create larger estate-size sites."

The Blackberry Patch Golf Club is located just five minutes off Interstate 69, an hour's drive or less from Lansing, Kalamazoo, Elkhart and Fort Wayne, Ind.

The auction will begin at 6 p.m. at the Blackberry Patch Golf clubhouse, 608 One Straight Drive, Coldwater, MI 49036. Schrader personnel will be available to guide inspections from 10:30 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 12, and from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. Monday, Sept. 14. Individuals interested in additional information about the home sites may contact Schrader at 800-451-2709 or visit the company's web site,
