Elkhorn Lake Orion Township MI information 

Lake homes are a great investment.  As our lives get busier and busier more buyers will see the value of owning a lake home in Oakland County or around metro Detroit.  Driving up north may be out of the question for some potential lake home buyers.  They need to be close to Metro Detroit because of their kids busy activities, work, or family.  If you want family and friends to come to your lake house they will most likely come when it is a short drive versus driving 4 hours.  Oakland County lake front properties are a great investment because they are not making more lakes.  There is a limited supply and always a high demand.  As the years go by lake home values will continue to grow.  Here is lots of information about waterfront properties on Elkhorn Lake in  Orion Twp.

 Elkhorn Lake homes Orion MI

Elkhorn waterfront properties and homes listings.  Common to many Oakland County Lakes, Elkhorn waterfront propertiesare a mixture of older 1950's small ranches (as small as 800 square feet) to larger 1990's and 2000's built larger colonials and contemporary style homes.  Some are as large as 4000 square feet. The lake has one or two 2000-2500 square foot colonials on the lake. Other homes are smaller and older in style.

I would say the three main home styles on the lake are ranches, colonials, and contempories.

Elkhorn Lake properties vary from small 40' of lake frontage up to over 400' of lake frontage.  But again I would guess that most of them range from 40 - 75' foot of lake frontage.  There are a few lake homes that have over an acre of land.  There is one that has 1.5 acres and another with 6 acres.

When you buy or sell a lake property factors like property size, amount of parking, where the home sits(faces) does make a difference to the current or future home buyers.  Lake home owners have parties.  They have friends, and families over on the weekends.  They may need parking for 5 or 6 cars.  Do you have the parking space for your friends?  Or is there some public parking for you.

The larger the lot the pricier the lake home may be.  Acreage on the lake is rare in Southeastern Michigan.  A lake home that is private is a rare commodity.  Most Southeastern Michigan lake properties are close together.  Many lake homes are on lots that range from 35' to 80' in size.  So you are going to see your neighbors in most cases.  Simply because you do not want to obstruct your lake views with trees and bushes.  Besides it would become a battle with your neighbors.  You do not want to put in a tree that will obstruct your neighbors view.  That is one way of creating an enemy fast.

Another plus for any property is to have a sunset view.  Everybody loves to see the sun set over the lake.  I cannot put a dollar amount on what it is worth, but it does add a little value to the home.  Some home buyers start out trying to buy a sunset view home.

The last question is do you have the space to add on if that is what you want to do?  Again this is up to you the buyer to go to the local community's building department to find out the restrictions.  There are many rules and regulations when building on a lake.  There is a line of site regulation in some communities.  What I mean by that you cannot build or add on towards the lake if you obstruct your neighbors view.

If you are selling your lake home be sure to share that information of all the little bonuses you have.  The extra parking, the sunset view, the extra space to add on a garage all makes as difference to potential home buyers.  So tell them about it.
