Brendel Lake homes and Brendel Lake real estate Oakland County Michigan

Schools, Schools, Schools. How important is the school system to you when buying a lakefront home in Oakland County or Livingston County?  Or is the drive time more important to you when looking at waterfront properties?  I always urge lake home buyers to write up a list of priorities before they start their home search.  Knowing what you want and having it on paper will keep you focused and most likely will help you find the home that really fits your criteria.  It is hard enough to find the “right” or “perfect” home in a subdivision.  Now you are looking for that “right” home and adding in all these other criteria such as size of lake, all sports or not, public or private, or type of water bottom.  Search "Michigan Lake Cottages & Homes For Sale”

More factors to think about and prioritize when buying a lakefront home in Southeastern Michigan.  It doesn’t matter whether it is a West Bloomfield lake home or a Novi waterfront home.  These factors make it harder.  My goal with these lake pages is to help make your decision easier because you are more informed.

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

If you are selling your lakefront home  and it doesn't have it's own page on this site then it isn't getting the maximum lakefront exposure.  With over 200 pages of Oakland and Livingston County Lakes this is Metro Detroit's biggest and best lake website getting thousands of visitors each month.

Almost every lake on this site shows up on the first page of google when you search the lake name.  So if you want to get your home in front of people who are looking to buy a lake home give me a call on my cell phone.  Let's get your lake home SOLD!!!

When you buy a lake home I always recommend for you to get a survey.  IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU DO SO.  I have a cottage on White Lake and have seen a few battles between home owners over the lot lines.  Twice I have seen where the owners were completely surprised that they did not own the land they were fighting over.  If you have a staked survey you will not have any surprise.

If you are buying a waterfront property look up the property lines at the county or the community the home is in.  I have seen lakefront homes sold that were not really lake front.  They had a subdivision or community access in front of them.  I have seen lot lines that angle.  Where the owners thought they owned a perfect rectangle instead it was an rectangle at an angle.

It is better to get a staked survey so there are not property disputes with neighbors.  On White Lake in White Lake Township there was a home sold years ago as a lakefront home.  It  became a law suit when the owners found out that the neighbors actually owned the lakefront in front of their home.  They ended up letting the home go back to the bank.

I have seen several lake homes listed this year that were not actually lake front.  They had a lake view but they did not actually own to the lake.  It is up to you the buyer to do the research to make sure of that.



My thought for the day

“You have brains in your head.
You have feet in your shoes.
You can steer yourself in any direction you choose.
You’re on your own.
And you know what you know.
You are the guy who’ll decide where to go.”

Dr. Seuss

Here is what a few Previous clients had to say about working with me! 

"After meeting Russ on the lake, he called me when he saw lakefront homes that he thought we would like.  After a showings we found our Dream home!.  Its very impressive to find an agent today that doesn't just send links and hope you call them.  He didn't rush me or push me to by a house.  We talked about what we really wanted.  No we have a lake home with a big lot, great view, with lots of storage.
Russ was a fantastic realtor.  I was looking to sell my home in Waterford.   I asked him to come over to tell me what to do for the least amount, and the easiest way to get top dollar.  I did what Russ said.  The house sold quickly and I received top dollar for my home.  I would highly recommend Russ to anybody looking to sell"
– Bart Andrews


"It went incredible. Russ is professional, punctual, knowledgeable, and just a great person to work with. I would not do real estate business with anyone but Russ going forward


Russ helped us sell our condo that we had been trying to sell for more than 5 years off and on. We listed with Russ and had multiple offers in the first week, and sold almost at our asking price."

– Matt Snell
