Belleville Lake Homes and Belleville Lake real estate

 If you are looking for a good realtor that really knows his stuff and has over 15 years of experience then you have come to the right place.  Buying a waterfront home is a dream for many home buyers and my goal is to help you achieve that dream.  Many lakes have different factors.  For example lakefront homes in Waterford are on city water and sewer whereas waterfront properties in Highland are on well and septic.  Little things that I have picked up over the years as which lakes are due for a big assessment because sewers are coming in is important to lake house buyers.  

You don’t want to buy a home and get hit with a big assessment.  Or you don’t want to buy a home on a canal to find out that it isn’t deep enough for your boat.  Or that there is a culvert that a new pontoon can’t go through.   The unknowns can be costly.  That is why I put together these webpages to explain about our local lakes in Oakland and Livingston County.  If you have questions about waterfront homes on Belleville Lake in Van Buren Twp. Michigan always feel free to reach and call me at (248)310-6239 or email me at   Search the newest lake listings, properties , and homes by map.  Zoom in on the lake or area to find your next home.  

Why pay too much to some real estate agent?  When you sell your home..... keep more of your money and your homes profits by hiring a great realtor with a low commission rate.  Save thousands and thousands of dollars on your real estate commission.  Call Russ today to see how much you can save when listing your home  248-310-6239

There are so many different lakes out there.  There are hundreds of lakes in Oakland County and thousands of lake homes.  However lake homes do not turn over as quickly as regular homes.  Sometimes lake homes stay in the family for generations.  Some of my clients hang onto the lake home for years in the hopes the kids will want it.

But lets talk about narrowing your lake home search.  First of all where would you like to have the lake home at?  Does it have to be within an hour of work?  Or within a certain distance from your kids?  Next what type of lake are you looking for?  An all sports lake where you can use jet ski, tube, and wakeboard on?  Or would you prefer a quiet non-motorized lake?

Then what type of lake house are you looking for?  All of these items will help you narrow your search down.  Then you will not be jumping all over southern Michigan trying to find a home.  Give me a call on my cell phone if you have questions on where to start.  My email is and my cell is (248)310-6239
