Looking for a house in Oakland County Michigan?


“Trust, but verify.” This is a Russian proverb popularized by President Ronald Reagan that I really appreciate especially when I became a REALTORⓇ.


There is so much real estate information nowadays. Not to mention, what you read online may be an overload because they all claim to tell the truth about lakefront houses and what you need to consider if you will sell or buy one.


I am a pro when it comes to verifying facts and I will do the same for your property, whether your home is being sold or when it is time to buy your own place in this most sought after county with the most number of lakes.


Let me make a difference by making your life stress-free!


Basic things that you need to look for when you buy a lakefront house


Lakefront homes fit a certain lifestyle choice that is incredibly exciting for many buyers and sellers. I encourage you to be rational when it comes to choosing this lifestyle.


Living in a lakefront home is not the same as a traditional purchase. It is important to know some points before making the leap into lakefront living.


Find out as much information as you can about the lakehouse you’re moving into. You may log on to my website  for details about the houses and the area as a whole. I’ve written more than 300 pages of thorough research not just for Oakland County Michigan but for other counties as well.


So if you’re moving to this part of the state, there is one website that contains everything. You can even find out the sizes of the lakes that best suit your requirements by checking this article Oakland County Lake by Size.  


Make sure available recreational opportunities are made clear to you by your REALTORⓇ. Find out if boating, fishing, swimming, scuba diving, kayaking, snorkeling, water skiing, or waterfowl hunting are activities you can do near your home. Consider when the water freezes, are jet skis allowed in the area? Some lakes are more appropriate than others for particular kinds of activities.


Lakefront Properties in Oakland County - A great place to start and retire.


I can assure you that there are at least 43 watersport lakes situated in Oakland County. 17 lakes have public access, the rest are private but it doesn’t really make much of a difference if it’s public or private. Everyone wants to enjoy themselves during the weekends so all of the lakes are busier regardless of the location.

They say life is lovelier at the lake. So make a wise move now before it’s too late.


Experience a 2-story brick home situated on a stunningly landscaped lot, with 3 bedrooms, 3 and ½ baths and 3, 413 sq ft, is $449, 900.00.

Look for an agent that will be on your side and will help you get you a good home within your budget, an Oakland home that you can enjoy for decades. Lakefront homes are naturally more interesting to find at a good price due to higher demand. With the right agent, the search is more meaningful.
