One of the most close-knit neighborhoods in Grand Rapids
Alger Heights is a small urban neighborhood in Grand Rapids with a population of approximately 4,500. The popularity of this neighborhood as led me to sell over — homes in this area alone. The average list price is $125,000, and is comprised of mostly small to medium single family, owner occupied homes and apartments. It is in the top 5% for college friendly communities, and has an above-average safety rating. Alger Heights is the only Grand Rapids community with homes built almost exclusively during the Great Depression and World War II, so you can expect to find many quaint, affordable bungalows and charming historic homes in this area. The district boasts of 4 parks including the favored MacKay-Jaycees Park which is a beautiful, multi-use nature preserve. Along with the abundance of small local businesses and annual community events, Alger Heights is a fantastic place to call home.
