If you are looking for a good lake realtor to help you find the best deals on a lake home.  I know the local lakes and can save you lots of time and stop you from making a bad decision on a SE Michigan lake home.  

Let's talk about Big Lake front homes for sale. If you are looking at Big Lake homes be prepared for dirt roads.  There are only gravel roads on the lake.

On the northwest side of the lake most of the lakefront homes sit across the gravel road.  The road is not heavily traveled so it would be safe to let children cross it if they looked both ways.  It would be no different than living on a side street in the city that wasn't a thru street.  On that side of the lake there is a grass area between the road and the lake.  Some of the homes on that side have larger and wider lots.  The view from the homes is great too because they sit up a little higher.

Big Lake Real Estate

On the other sides of the lake the it is different.  The homes sit right on the lake.  Big Lake waterfront homes range from 1929 800 square foot ranchs to 2000 built 4000 square foot colonials.  There is every type of home you could want on the lake. 

So what is the lake life style?  Over all the lake life style is a little different than subdivision.  Most lake home owners know their neighbors or other people socially from being from seeing them out on the lake.  I would say the lake life style is more social.  Though there are many lake home owners that keep to themselves.  So lake home owners may not even own a boat.  To me that is foreign....but some people find that the water is soothing and they just love the view.

There are always people like that on a lake.  Some have gotten older and no longer want to maintain a boat, some are just happy looking at the lake and the birds, ducks, swans on the lake.  I have had many clients that do not have boats and are so happy on the lake.  They are just more relaxed because of the lake.

Most lakes will have a gathering spot.  What I mean by that is a place where boats and people tend to hang out together.  They may not know each other too well, but they may talk a little when anchored close by.  If it is a mucky lake they may anchor in a deep spot to swim.  If there are islands on the lake they may park on the shallow end of the island.  Some lakes has shallow areas or sunken islands that lake home owners anchor at.  Some stay to themselves with their family and kids.  Other lake home owners mingle and chat with the other people on the boats.

There are even bungalows on the lake!

Here is what one of my previous client's had to say about working with me as their realtor!


" Dear Mr. Ravary,
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your support, guidance and knowledge towards the purchase of my first home.  You were very kind, friendly and patient during the whole process.  The good thing I like about you is that you have never pushed us to buy any home, but walked with us and gave us yr honest opinion about homes we visited.  You had never rushed into make a decision but gave us a time to make the decision wisely during the whole process.  You made me familiar and explained with some of the real-estate terms and that helped me a lot during the whole process.  Even after the home purchased, I know I can still count you for any help towards my home.  I would definitely recommend you to my friends/family for their future home purchase! "

My thought for the day

“Our death is not an end
if we can live on in our children
and the younger generation.
For they are us,
our bodies are only wilted leaves
on the tree of life.”
