Oakland County lakefront homes

There are so many different types of Oakland County Lake homes in Southeastern Michigan.  Buying a lake house in Oakland County is different than buying a home off the lake simply because there are so many different variables in a lake home.  Things like lake bottom, width of lake frontage, what the neighbors property looks like, amount of parking, lake size, all sports lake, private or public lake.  So many time you have to give on what you want in a lake home in SE Michigan.  You are not going to find that perfect Oakland County lake house.   It is just that simple.  The second thing you have to remember is that you are not going to have a lateral financial move.  If you have a beautiful 2400 square foot colonial that is worth $400,000 in Northville you are going to pay $100,000+ over that $400,000.  Sometimes double that amount.  Lake homes in Oakland County cost more than a normal home.

Here is a complete list of lakes in Oakland County Michigan.  I have tried to do a page on so many of the different lakes.  Some are really small ponds but others are big all Oakland County sports lakes.  I try to give you a glimpse of what the lakes are like, the lakefront homes you will find on the lake, the lake depth and other important information that will help you pick the perfect lake for you and your family.  I hope this helps you make a sound decision when buying your next waterfront home.

If you are a lake home seller in the metro Detroit you may want to know what lakefront property has sold in for in the last year.  I have also gone back a year or two on the recent sold homes on different pages on my lake websites. That way you can at least see a trend in our local real estate market.  It is very important to see the latest sold homes on your lake.  Many sellers listen to the national news and think if the national real estate market is going up that our local lake prices are going up.  Unfortunately it is not like that.  Real estate is local.  We can have a hot real estate market in Novi and it can be slow in Highland, or Belleville.  Metro Detroit home sellers like yourself need to know that.  Otherwise you may be overpricing your home, or hanging onto your home too long.

Pine Lake West Bloomfield MI

These indepth pages on our local lakes will give you lake depths and sizes.  You will be able to find out about some of the lake regulations and the water source.  I try to give you information whether the lake has a ski course or whether it is private or has DNR access.  I hope these pages on our Southeastern Michigan lakes help you sort out what type of lake you want.  You may want to be in a subdivision lake because you do not want to live next door to a crummy house.

I try to identify whether the local lakes are private or public with DNR access.  To some waterfront home buyers that is very important.  Some lake home buyers only want a private lake.  I have driving around the lakes, talked to home owners and sold homes on quite a few of the local lakes.  I like to share what I know about the lakes whether they have sandy bottoms or whether the lake is mucky.  If the lake is more like a subdivision I write about that too.

But most importantly I take pictures when even I show a house on a lake, take pictures of the lakes when I have a listing.  I try to show the activities on the lake.  After all that is what you want to know about.  What can you do on the lake?  What makes this Oakland County Lake the best lake for you and your family.

Williams Lake Waterford Michigan

After all most lake home buyers live in these homes for many years.  Lake homes have a lower turnover than say a home in a subdivision.  Sometimes lake homes are handed down from generation to generation.  So I want you to understand the lake.  I try to show the lake as it really is.

When you go to buy any home in Southeastern Michigan I always recommend stopping and talking to the neighbors. I also recommend you to visit the neighborhood at different times of the day.  If possible maybe somebody on the lake will give you ar ride around the lake.  So pick out the lakes you like on my list of lakes in Oakland County Michigan.

Good luck and if you need a good lake realtor to help you out give us a call (248) 310-6239.
