Briggs Lake real estate Livingston County
Briggs Lakefront homes in Brighton MI were mainly built between 1930's and the 1980's. Most of the lakefront homes are between the little 800 square foot ranchs to larger 2500 square foot colonials and bungalows.
There are two large contemporary or split level homes that were built on Grand River. One is 7900 square feet and one is 5900 square feet. One is also part commercial business. Both have 6 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. But these two homes are not the norm for Brigg's lake homes. Most are much smaller under the 1800 square foot size.
There is a motel on the north side of the lake. There is a gravel road around most of the lake.

If you are moving to the Brighton area and want a lakefront home then you have quite a few lakes to chose from. Give me a call to talk about which lake you would like.
Are you thinking of selling your lakefront home? If you are then you may want to spruce your waterfront home up. Todays home buyers want that fixed up, move in ready home. They want the freshly painted walls, the granite counter tops, the new carpet, the refinished hardwood floors, the updated kitchens and baths. Todays lake home buyers do not want to see paneling, wall paper, or old cabinets. Today's buyers prefer kitchens that have views of the lake, larger master bedrooms with views of the lake, and open layout homes.
You may not be able to change your layout, or open your kitchen up to get a lake view but you may be able to take that old wall paper down. You could paint, or update the carpet. What you do should be compared to how much the sales price will increase. You do not want to spend $30,000 updating the kitchen to get $20,000 back. You do not want to spend $20,000 to finish the basement if you only get a $10,000 return.
Recently a 800 square foot home with no basement on a canal got $200 a square foot. It sold at such a high price because it was pristine and totally updated. It sold in under a week! Other homes that were in need of work have been sitting on the market for three months or more. Some of these fixer uppers could have sold sooner if only the sellers took a little time to get them ready to sell.
