Cooley Lake lakefront homes Oakland County 

Lakefront ranch homes range in size from 800 square feet to over 2500 square feet. On the North side of the lake there are some wide and deep waterfront lots set back off the road. The road is paved on that side. I don't know about the south side of the lake roads.

The colonials that have been listed for sale in the last three years range in size from 1700 square feet to over 3900 square feet. Again like many Oakland County lakes the age of Cooley Lake homes range frome 1920 to today. There are a few homes on the lake that they don't even know when they were built!

 Cooley Lake White Lake MI               

You must purchase a fishing license if you are 17 years of age or older and plan on fishing in Michigan's inland lakes. Individuals under the age of 17 may fish without a license.  Regardless of age, everyone is required to observe all fishing rules and regulations at all times. All annual fishing licenses are valid from March 1st of a given year through March 31st of the following year.

Fishing license dollars fund a variety of activities including; fish management work on the state's waters, habitat rehabilitation and protection, fish stocking, information distribution, education and outreach efforts to anglers and the public, and much more. The Michigan Department of Natural Resources' Fisheries Division does not receive any general fund tax dollars to support its activities. Instead, Fisheries Division depends heavily on angler dollars collected through fishing license sales and federal excise tax dollars from the sale of fishing tackle (Dingell-Johnson Sport Fish Restoration Act) to manage Michigan's fisheries. Buying a fishing license, even if you do not plan to go fishing, can make a big difference to the future health of Michigan's prized freshwaters.

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




"I first started looking at real estate listings online nearly a year ago, but at first I thought I´d never really buy one. I hadn´t been paying attention and thought I still couldn´t afford to buy a place. I also had no experience in buying a home and I wanted to make sure I knew what I was doing before I bought. For most questions I would search online, the topic had been discussed on Russ´ blog.  Not only that, he was local. Over the summer, I finally decided to start physically looking at houses and Russ was the only choice.


My preferred method of contact was email and he always responded in a timely fashion. He was patient with this first-time home buyer, and worked with me through my initial bid process. I was surprised when they accepted the bid! The transaction went smoothly, with Russ patiently answering any questions and concerns I had. From the first time we looked at houses to the closing was exactly one month. I´ve been here five months now and people still marvel at what I got for the price I paid. When I requested a plumber, he was able to provide one was lived close by and was economical."


Thanks for everything, Russ.

These are some of the ways that will help you price your home right if you plan to sell it.

  1.   When you stage a waterfront home, set up your lawn furniture in a socially inviting manor. If it’s possible, have the waterfront area professionally landscaped. There’s nothing like a clean and well-kept lawn.
  2.   Know your territory. Many of the potential buyers are unfamiliar with the lakes in your area. It is helpful to provide a map of the lake indicating the location of the property you are selling. Or better yet, you can assist them in gaining more knowledge about the lake and its surrounding areas.  Inform them of the restaurants they can go to or shops in existence.
  3.   Maximize your view. Make sure that your windows are clean. Remove obstructions like lamps that may block the view of the lake.
