I will speak from my own experience. My wife and I lived in a Livonia subdivision for 22 years. I enjoyed living in Livonia for so many years. I had a good life. I enjoyed working in my garden. On weekends we went out with friends. We went out to dinner. We went to local festivals. We went up north to friend's places on lakes. We did not live on a lake. We went to other places than our home to have fun.
That is one of the main differences of lake living. Lake homes are the fun places to go to. Your lake home is the place your friends, your family will like to come to. If you are like so many lake home owners you may not want to go anywhere else. The years of going to festival like Arts, Beats, and Eats because you have nothing else to do may be gone.
What the difference of city living versus owning a lake home is that your lake home is a good destination. Your lake home is the go to fun place. I have heard so many lake home owners say that they sometimes pass up graduations, wedding, and family gatherings because they do not want to miss out on a beautiful day at the lake. I went to Jimmy Buffet for years. One summer we were sitting out tailgating in 90+ degree heat. All I could think of is being on the lake. The next year we did not go back to Jimmy Buffet's concert. I would rather be at the lake.
So it is your choice. Do you want your next lake home to be fun place or would you rather live in a subdivision and have to go out of your home to have fun. What would you rather do? I myself moved to a lake home.

Here is what a previous client said about me!
It´s been 2 months since we moved into our new Canton condo and we
are very happy with it. In the beginning we didn´t even
know what we needed but with your help, guidance and
patience we chose the best condo in the area with the best
price according to our needs. We were looking all over. We looked in Novi, Warrren, Canton, Farmington Hills. But we finally found our Canton condo. We appreciate everything you
have done for us. We would recommend you without hesitation
to everyone we know who wants to buy or sell a house. "
