Buck Lake Waterfront homes Livingston County

Buck Lake waterfront properties are mainly older smaller 800-900 square foot cottages. Most of Buck Lake homes are ranchs or bungalows. Though there are some two story houses on the lakes that are about 2000 square foot. I did notice one good sized home that I would estimate to be over 2500 square foot. That is just a guess. But I would call most of these Livingston County Lakefront cottages.. But I think many of them are year round lake front homes.

Buck Lake General info  

The roads around Buck Lake are dirt roads.  The kids that live on the lake go to Pinckney Schools.

One of the many questions I hear over and over is....How much does the crummy house next door drag my house's value down or this lake home's value down?  It is very common on Metro Detroit lakes that a big beautiful home is right next door to a crummy or ugly house.  You can have a $500,000 lake home next to a fixer upper or a tear down home. 

It is not unusual.  So how much does the crummy house next door bring the value down?  Of course some lake home buyers will not buy the nice home next door to the crummy house.  So you may eliminate some lake home buyers because of that house.

Some people do not care.  They are just happy getting the home of their dreams.  During the time that they live there the home may be sold, or renovated.  You never know.  There is such a limited amount of lake homes out there.  Some buyers are constantly looking for the good bones house that they can remodel and make their own.  Sometimes if the lake lot is big enough the home may be added on to or completely torn down and re-built.  So it is up to you the buyer whether you can handle living next door to a crummy house.

My thought of the day:

“Usually when people are sad, they don’t do anything.
They just cry over their condition.
But when they get angry, they bring about a change.”

Here is what a previous client had to say about me! 


A year ago my husband and I started looking for a house with the help of Russ Ravary.  We thought this search would take a long time.  With the technology we had available we were successful after 3 months.  It took us over a year to find the house the last house we bought.  We know what we wanted exactly.  Russ used the Internet and e-mail to keep us up to date on the houses that had just gone on the market, the length of time they were on the market, and all the public record data.  I never thought I would have a house on a lake with all these features.


My biggest obstacle was putting our house up for sale.  When we put the bid on the new house and it was accepted, Russ said it was time to put the old "For Sale" sign up.  I wasn't ready!  First we hadn't told any of our neighbors, second we weren't quite done putting the finishing touches on the house and third we were going on vacation and I didn't want people in the house while we were gone. 


It took over a week for me to be convinced that this was the right thing to do.  After several talks at our kitchen table I said yes.  Russ knew the faster we got the house up for sale in the spring the better our chances were to sell it.  The sign went up the day after we left for vacation.  I was worried on Sunday because that was the first (and only) Open House.  On Saturday we were on our way to the airport to come home, Russ called us with the news...there was a bid on the house!  I couldn't believe it the house was sold in a week!!!!   Homes in our market were taking over six months to sell.


People always ask what we did to sell the house so quickly.  My answer is to trust your Sales Agent. He/she is in this business and deals with it everyday so you need to trust his/her expertise.  Some of the advice we got was to get rid of the clutter, make it less personal and the big one remove the flowered wallpaper.  Russ was forthright in giving advice on how to make the home more saleable.  Sometimes I did not like what Russ had to say about the house, but we did what he said.  And it worked.  We sold it in 7 days for 97% of the selling price.  It was a combination of luck and doing the rights things to get the home ready for sale.  Russ came through 3 times telling us what to do.


Luckily, I (we) listened to what Russ say.  I'm so grateful for everything he did for us, we are now enjoying our new home...sorry Russ for making you a little crazy!
