Chelsea, Michigan is a vibrant, inviting community.
Here's why it's such a great place to live:
Chelsea was founded in the year 1820, and the railroad built a station here in 1850. Life here is an interesting mixture of modern amenities and yesteryear's charm. The old clocktower has been the quintessential Chelsea landmark for 101 years. It currently houses the Chelsea Chamber of Commerce and other offices, and is adjacent to a complex that offers restaurants and shops as well as a courtyard.

A THRIVING LOCAL THEATER
The Purple Rose Theatre was founded in 1991 by notable actor Jeff Daniels who is a native of Chelsea. It features original plays in a setting from the past, when the stage was the focal point of entertainment. The theater was originally a bus garage, but was refurbished over the years.

Real Estate Tips
Insurance >Hazard Insurance
Are you considering taking out hazard insurance on a property before you actually take title? It may be a good idea!
Even though you are not yet the owner of record, as the buyer, you have an insurable interest in a property the moment that you and the seller execute the sales agreement. As a matter of practice, however, buyers do not usually take out insurance until the papers change hands, and it should not be necessary if the agreement of sale is properly executed.
It is very important to both parties that the agreement states that the property will be insured for a specific amount. From the buyer's point of view, an adequate sum must be stipulated, and the agreement should not read "as now insured", which can indicate that the seller may not want to increase the insurance.
As a general rule, the amount of insurance on the buildings on a property should equal the sales price, less the value of the lot.
