With the August grand opening of the Bridge Street Market, Grand Rapids has added an upscaled, top-notch grocery store to the West-Side of town. This facility is one of the newest developments to hit the area, and it is fully focused on building the culture and community surrounding neighborhoods.

There is an equilibrium with exposure and success. If someone doesn’t hear about a product, how are they supposed to know that it even exists? ArtPrize (http://www.artprize.org/) is helping Grand Rapids in more ways than current residence could possibly imagine.

But what does that mean for you, how could it help you sell your home?
