Charlick Lakefront homes Oakland County Michigan 

So you may be thinking of selling an Oakland County waterfront home or maybe considering finding a local cottage for a summer getaway.  That is one of the best benefits of finding a waterfront property in Oakland County.  The ease of getting there and the limited time it will take.  No four hour rides up north, or being stuck in holiday traffic.  You can get back and forth to work and be on the lake every weekend.  Buying a lakefront cottage in Southeastern Michigan makes sense.  The money you save in gas alone is a benefit.

Charlick Lake homes were built in the 1960's-1970's. There are smaller homes on the lake fron 1500-2000 square feet at the most. The roads are paved around the lake and in the subdivision. The majority of Charlick Lake homes are ranches and split level homes. Though there are:

      • cape cods
      • colonial style homes

Charlick Lake homes Highland MI

Unlike many Oakland County Michigan Lakes there is a little more space. Charlick Lake properties I would say have 80 - 100 foot of frontage on the lake.   Charlick Lake homes are like living in a subdivision yet a little rural.  You are probably 10 - 15 minutes from Milford.

The lake homes are level with the lake.  No steep hills on the lake.

I wish I could say that keeping up with the Joneses does not apply on the lakes. It does unfortunately with some of the lake home owners when it comes to boats and toys.  Who has the fastest jet ski, or the most expensive boat.  The keeping up with the Joneses does not apply to much to homes.  It is more about the toys.

I guess I would say that the boats and toys are more important the lake house sometimes.  Landscaping on most lake home is simpler.  You are not going to have three level of shrubs or $100,000 front landscaping.  Lake home owners are more about enjoying the lake than taking care of the yard.  Some lake home have little or no landscaping.

I believe most lake home owners are individualist.  They are not into keeping up with the Joneses.  Part of it that lake homes are not similar.  They vary so much.  So one lady is not going to be able to decorate the same way in her 1500 square foot remodeled cottage as her neighbor in the rebuilt colonial that is 2400 square feet.  Different layouts and different styles.  No keeping up with the Jones.

Many lake homes have beautiful interiors that are well kept and well maintained.  The prestige of lake living is just that.  You get to wake up each morning to the lake.  You get to come home to the lake each night.  You are able to sit on your patio, or take a ride around the lake when you want to.  That is best part of lake live.

To assist you better in selling or buying your waterfront property, here are some questions to ask yourself.


  1.      What is my waterfront home worth?  You need to compare the condition of your property, and the amenities with the recent comparable property sales. You may get in touch with me to get a Comparable Market Analysis (CMA) of your property.
  2.       How will I sell my house at the highest price possible? You can improve the value of your home by completing some steps. Polish your landscaping, eliminate clutter, clean your windows and walls and repaint as necessary.
  3.      How long will my waterfront home be on the market? It will always depend on the location, how you price your home and how aggressively your home appears on the market. Statistics show that if a home is priced properly, an offer should come within the first 12 showings. If you want to speed up the sales process, consider staging your home. Research shows that staging always sells a home faster.

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


"I was looking for a realtor and not knowing anyone in the business, I looked online. I heard from several people, but it was Russ with his no-nonsense approach that sold me. I asked what my first step should be and Russ stated immediately that I needed to get pre-qualified before looking at any properties. Great advice! After receiving my pre-qualification letter, Russ and I looked at many properties. As a first-time home buyer my knowledge was very limited, but Russ was more than willing to advise me on my best plan of action. We looked at many properties together and Russ was always on time; most of the time early for our appointments. He made my first experience of buying a home stress-free. If anyone asks me "Can you recommend a good realtor?" My answer would be, "Yes. Russ Ravary."
