SAGINAW, MI (WNEM) -

A new report from Nationwide Insurance ranked the healthiest housing markets across the county and Mid-Michigan is dominating the list.

Saginaw is one of three Michigan communities on the top 10 list, which also includes Michigan and the Lansing area.

"You can get a lot more house here than you can in other areas across the United States. You can really get a lot of house for what you pay," said Julie Hare, general manager at Century 21 Signature in Saginaw.

Saginaw County has one of the hottest housing markets in the country, according to the report. It was ranked No. 2.

Lansing was ranked No. 3 and Midland was ranked No. 9.

"It's exciting when you live in an area that's been ranked in the top 10 like that and I think it's a great place to live," Hare said.

Hare has worked in real estate in Mid-Michigan for nearly 20 years. She said the market in the tri-cities continue to improve.

"There's a lot of jobs so that's bringing people to our area. Our relocation department is booming here with people moving into our area," Hare said.

Hare also said home prices are going up and the high demand for homes is even creating some bidding wars.

"We're back into a situation where we have multiple offers on homes and we haven't seen that in years," Hare said.
