A large part of Elizabeth Lake is 40 feet deep or more in most of the lake. Elizabeth Lake is one of Oakland County's MI most sought after lakes. With lots of activities going on for any boating enthusiast lake buyers want homes on the lake. Being a private lake keeps the boat traffic down. But at the same time you can Jet ski, tube, fish, or do what ever you want because the lake is good size (363 acres).

Elizabeth Lakefront homes for sale have sold for as low as $43,900 in 2011. But in the highest price was in the $450,000 range. Like most of the time there is a large demand for lake homes under $250,000. The lake is an nice all sports lake that has many varieties of Waterford water front properties. There are 800-5400 square foot lake homes around the lake.
Elizabeth Lake property sizes depend on which side of the lake you are on. You will find wider and deeper lots on the northwest side of the lake. The homes on the south side of the lake are close to the road and the lake. The parking is tighter for the southside Elizabeth Lake properties.
Lake Home styles are:
Most Elizabeth Lake homes that were built in the 1920's and 30's are gone. Yes there are a few remaining. The older homes have been bulldozed and re built. Most of the homes are from 1940 on. The early homes have no basements on little lots and many times without garages. But some of the later homes were built with walkout basements. Most have garages if the lot size permitted it. The upper end homes on the lake have all the modern ammenities, including 3 car garages.
Children that live on Elizabeth Lake attend Waterford Schools.
There are many lake access homes near Elizabeth Lake
Oakland County lakes vary so much from lake to lake and even from one side of the lake to the other. You could have a sandy lake bottom on one side of the lake and mucky on the other. Some lakes are all sandy bottoms. Others are all mucky. The easiest way to check whether it is sandy or mucky is to get into the lake. That is why it is smart to buy a lake home when the ice is off the lake. Sometimes the lake bottom is sandy for 10 or 15 feet then gets mucky. Usually if the lake listing does not proclaim sandy lake bottom....then it does not have it.
The next part of lake frontage that you may want to consider is vegetation or vegetation free lake front. Usually a mucky lake front invites lily pads and cattails. Because of DNR rules you cannot just go out and rip out lily pads and vegetation in front of the home. So do not buy a lake home thinking you can change the waterfront drastically. Sure some lake home buyers do the midnight lily pad weeding or put down chemicals at night to kill the vegetation....but it is illegal and still will take several years to do.
Sometimes if the lake has not been used in years there will be a little bit of vegetation out front. That is usually easily cleaned up. This usually is the case when the sellers are older and have not used the lake in years. By the time the kids and grandkids use the lakefront all summer it will be clean again. Many lake home owners have a large rake (a landscape rake) to rake up seaweed, and rocks. It is a great tool to have.
Elizabeth Lake is located in Waterford Township Oakland County MI. It is S of Elizabeth Lake Road, N of Cass Elizabeth, E of Cooley Lake, and W of South Cass Lake Road.
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. I wished I had made the move earlier too. 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 will 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 leave work a little earlier to get on the lake. 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. They have their laptop on their boat and enjoying the day. Yet still working! Now that is a life style that anybody should love.
Everybody has their own wants in a lake, and what they want to do. No one person has the same desires. I know people that live on a lake and do not own a boat. They just love the scenery.

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."
