Cass Lake Waterford Township MI 

Oakland County Lake living.  I myself lived in Livonia for 23 years before I moved on a lake back in 2011.  It’s a great lifestyle.  I have had so many clients tell me that they had wished they had moved to the lake earlier.  When you move onto a lake I believe you become more social.  You tend to get to know your neighbors better.  You tend to be more active and tend to be outdoors more.  Family and friends want to come to your house and enjoy the lake lifestyle.   A warm beautiful day is an invitation to get out on the lake.  You tend to play hooky a little from work.  I know people that work from home that sometimes work with their computer in the middle of the lake.  They just float around in the sun working.  Now that is a life style that anybody should love. 

Cass Lake does connect to Dow Lake.  If you don't know Dow Lake, it is really just a small pond like lake that only has about 8 homes on it.  So you are not going to be skiing or anything on Dow Lake.  It is not much more than a small bay to putt, putt through.

Michigan home buyer bonusOne of the best parts of lake living is the nature and the wildlife that calls the lake home.  Some of our Michigan lakes are right in the migration path of many of the ducks and geese.  I sold a home on Independence Lake that had so many different ducks on it.  It was absolutely amazing to see the whole flock take off at one time.  It reminded me of my childhood when my grandparents to me to Jack Miner's bird sanctuary in Canada.

Our local lakes have mallards, wood ducks, geese, and  swans that are around most of the time.  Some people think the geese and swans can be a nuisance.  But there is something majestic about a swan swimming by.  Or funny when they have their butts in the air.  I know the sound thump, thump, thump of a swan taking flight.  It starts out awkward and then becomes a thing of beauty.

The sight of two swans squaring off over territory.  All these little things about life in nature.  It is wonderful!

If you move off the lake you will miss the sounds of the geese in the early morning.  The sights of the baby ducks all in a row each spring dutifully following their mother.  ( One time we saw a duck that had 18 little ducks swimming behind it)  That is some of the special highlights of living on the lake.

Cass Lake Keego Harbor MI

A sandy beach and a one-mile shoreline on Cass Lake makes Dodge #4 State Park an excellent location for summer and winter water activities.  Dodge State Park is known for its accessibility to Cass Lake for people who are interested in fishing, boating,  sitting on the beach, sailing, Ice skating, cross-country skiing, and snowmobiling. Ice sailing is a new and increasingly popular sport on Sundays in the area. There are boat launches and a parking lot that can accommodate in excess of 80 vehicles with boat trailers.                                           

The land which now comprises Dodge #4 State Park was donated to the State of Michigan by the Dodge Brothers Corporation in 1922, under the stipulation that it always be maintained as a public park.

Cass Lake Sailing

Is a nice inland lake for sailing when the lake is not overrun by speed boats and waverunners.  I would sail on the week days if possible.  It is possible to sail 3/4 mile course in most directions.   Consider joining the Pontiac Yacht Club, a small boat sailing club, located on a less busy section of the lake with their own private launch.

Cass Lake in West Bloomfield MI

Cass Lake in West Bloomfield MI

What do you think will help you sell your lakefront home faster? Giving enough attention to staging will help you bring top dollar to your waterfront property.

  1. Many waterfront homeowners neglect replacing broken boards on the shorefront decks. Repaint the entire waterfront area. It is an easy way to set your waterfront property apart from the rest.
  2. Clean and make sure that are no weeds from the sand beach area.  Clean out the beach prior to showings. Build a small sand castle and put out some children’s toys. Parents and grandparents love to envision their children playing on a nice beach while they are enjoying the waterfront views.
  3. If you have a boathouse, make sure to clean it inside and out. Much like the docking systems, paint it again as this will definitely go a long way. If possible, remove big boats; a large boat will make the boathouse look smaller.
