There is so much data and information about waterfront homes on waterfront properties on lakes in Southeast Michigan. When I look at lake homes or when I list a waterfront property I ask as much as I can about the lake. I have driven the streets and gathered a lot of information about the real estate on our local lakes. Whether it is a private lake or public lake makes a difference to lake home buyers. A wonderful part of the lake life style is all the fun & memories you are going to make and have. Great times with family & friends on the boat, parties on warm summer days, watching the wildlife on the lake. These fun times will be in your mind forever.
Lake Chemung's proximity to Howell and Brighton make it a valuable resource to the community.
The shoreline is extensively developed with residential housing and a few commercial businesses. In
2007, a shoreline survey showed 301 dwellings on the lake.
Another big criteria for many lake home buyers is whether it is an all sports lake or not. On this website I have a page on Oakland County’s Lake sizes and also a page on all the all sports lakes in Oakland County Michigan to help you narrow your lake home search down. I always below an educated buyer will make better decisions.
Search the latest Listings "Michigan Waterfront Properties For Sale” If you are ready to make a move so why not hire one of Oakland County’s best realtors that has helped hundreds of lakefront home buyers and sellers. One of my goals is to make your next move easier. I hope this webpage and information helps you in your search of Southeastern Michigan lake homes. There is so many different factors when looking at lake homes. I want you to find the right lake for you and your family. Look through my informational website and you will find the information you need on whether it is an all sports lake or not in Oakland and Livingston County.

Chemung Lakefront homes listings. Lake Chemung is what I would call a sleeper lake. The majority of the older lake homes have not been torn down to make way for the newer, more modern homes. The majority of the lakefront homes are the older 1000 square foot "cottage homes". Mainy of them are year round homes now. Many of the homes have been updated with new bathrooms, windows, new vinyl. But some have not.
If you are a person that wants to be surrounded by big beautiful waterfront properties, then Lake Chemung may not be the lake for you. It may have a run down old cottage on the same road you are on.
Most of the homes are small and some of the surrounding roads are dirt. Chemung Lake home styles are manily ranches and bungalows but there are cape cods, colonial style homes, split levels.
Lake Chemung lots are fairly close together and some of the lakes lots are smaller. But there are always homes with double lots, and lots that have good wide frontage on the lake.
The two keys to getting your lakefront home sold is to price it right, and a good marketing plan. A good marketing plan will get your lakefront home on websites that get seen. This website gets thousands of visitors a month and is Metro Detroit's #1 lake website. Give me a call to get your lake home marketed right and SOLD!
Chemung Lake does have some lake access homes.

Like everywhere you will have good and bad neighbors. Most lake home owners get along so well. Where the problem usually arises is about lot lines. So one of the biggest recommendations is to get a staked survey of your property. It is worthwhile and will help keep property line disputes down. I have heard too many stories of home owners using and thinking they owned to a certain point of land when they never actually owned it.
Lake courtesy is simple things like not blocking your neighbors view. You do not want to put trees or shrubs in to block your neighbors view. It is the same thing with a privacy fence to the lake. You are going to start a war and alienate your neighbor.
When you have a party alert your neighbor, you may want to even invite them. Remember parking is usually at a premium on the lake. So be courteous and do not let your guest block one of your neighbors. As I always say be nice. Try to do a little for them. Most lake homes are close. Closer than homes in many communities so stereos and noise can be a nuisance. Be aware of that when you are listening to your favorite tunes.
Being a good neighbor on the lake will make lake living so much better.
Lake Chemung is located between Howell and Brighton in central Livingston County. Although a natural lake, the Alger Creek outlet has been dammed enlarging the lake to an estimated 313 acres. Alger Creek flows out of Lake Chemung to Thompson Lake and then discharges to Bogue Creek of the South Branch Shiawassee River. The Lake Chemung dam dates back to the 1920's however, the current structure was built in 1968. It is described as an earthen dam with a concrete water control structure and overspill discharge.
Chemung lake is a long and narrow lake. It is about 1.6 miles in length. DNR Access to the lake is off Hughes Rd. The west end of the lake is natural. There are no homes on that part of the lake! Lake Chemung has a fairly regular shoreline and is elongated in shape with a fetch estimated at 1.6 miles.
Wilson Marine is on the east end of the lake on Grand River. Sanitary sewers were installed around the lake in 1994.
Chemung Lake is located in Genoa Township Livingston County MI. It is South of S Hughes Rd, North of Grand River, and East of Latson Rd. It is right off Grand River between Brighton and Howell.
