Most of the homes on the lake were built after the 1960's and there are quite a few that were built in the 1990's and 2000's.  Deer Lake home styles are:

  • cape cods
  • colonial style homes

What is your dream?  Do you want to retire somewhere warm?  Do you want to retire on some island?   My clients that have just bought or bought a lake home in the last two years say to me "why didn't I do this years ago." .   I myself can't believe I am living the dream.

The ability to go swimming when I want.  The ability to untie the boat and go for a little cruise around the lake. All those dreams have become reality.  They can become reality for you too.  Do you want to be able to come home at the end of the day and relax on your deck or patio and look out at the lake.

Do you want to have a fun place for your kids or grandkids to come back to?  Living the dream may be having your friends or family over the weekend.  It could be relaxing in the sun.  There are so many fun things to do on the lake.  Your lake home is your vacation.  Many people on the lake think why go on vacation when we live on the lake?  Why drive 3 1/2 hours to go up north when you have paradise in your back yard. 

I know some lake people that miss weddings, graduation parties because it is a beautiful day on the lake.  They are living the dream.  The kids jumping off the dock.  Your child catching that big fish or your grandchild catching their first fish.  Family playing volley ball, corn hole, or ladder ball.  Laughing and having fun at the lake.  That is what lake living is all about.

Are you ready to live the dream? Give me a call to start your lake home search today (248) 310-6239

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.
~ Christine M.
