In the past five years, median home sale prices in Royal Oak have gone up 70 percent — nearly double the rate of Oakland County. I attribute much of this increase to the new, infill homes being developed in spots throughout the city, predominantly bought by young families. What attracted them to Royal Oak? Many have told me that they came to our city for dining and entertainment when they were single and want to continue to enjoy it as they grow their families. They love our many neighborhood parks. When Main Street was closed to vehicles on Friday nights in June, the street was filled with couples with strollers, and toddlers happily careening down the middle of the street. Royal Oak offers a perfect combination of urban amenities and safe, beautiful neighborhoods.
