One of the questions I ask my lakefront home buyers is do you like the view of the water or do you want lake access?  The reason I ask this questions is about the affordability of buying a lake home.  You can buy a canal front home on some lakes for less money.   You can get more home for the money on a canal.   So if a lake view is not an important factor you may get more for your money by buying a canal front home.  Canal front homes on Cass Lake in Waterford or Cedar Island Lake in White Lake are going to cost less than a waterfront home of similar size on the same lake.  So deciding what you want in a lake and a lake home is very important to think about before starting your search.  That is one of the pros of buying on a canal.   There are pros and cons on where you live on a lake.

For example do you want to see the sunset?  Being on the west shore of a lake gives you a great view of the sunset.  However with that view you will get all the stuff from the east side of the lake.  The west winds will blow seaweed, leaves, and miscellaneous articles to your shoreline. ( I live on the west side of a lake so I know of these issues.   These are just some of the different things that come up with buying a waterfront property for sale in Oakland County Michigan.  That is why it is important to hire a good full time experienced lake realtor like myself to help you understand our local lakes.

The Metro Detroit area has many lakes and many different home styles to fit any potential lake buyers that are moving to West Bloomfield Township or moving to the metro Detroit areas.  There are small electric motor lakes,  no motor lakes, and lots of all sports lakes in Oakland County.  So feel free to call me any time to talk about what you want in a lake.

Custom image 1So what county should you buy a lake home in?  You should not base your decision on buying a lake home in on a county.  It should be about convenience.  If you are thinking about commuting to work which lakes, which counties will work best for you?  You do not want to be driving an hour and a half back and forth to work when you could have been driving only 45 minutes.

Another factor in many of my client’s decisions is not only drive time to work, but also how far away are their kids.  How far do the kids have to drive to get to the lake home, or Lake Cottage?  I have had clients that have kids in Lansing and one in Mt Clemens.  So they want the lake cottage to be somewhere in between.  They may have one child in Ann Arbor and one in Farmington Hills.  The clients may be retired so they have no drive time.  It is more about convenience to the kids.

All of your metro Detroit Counties have lake or ponds.  But most of them are in Oakland and Livingston County all have lakes.  All lakes are different.  So besides drive time it may boil down to the lake and the lake home you can find.  If you are not restricted by drive time then you have a wide open choice of four counties and hundreds of lakes.

So there is no best county to buy a lake home in.  There is no best city to buy a cottage in.  It is all about your criteria, your wants.  If you have no travel restrictions or times you will have many choices.  Feel free to email me what you are looking for in a lake home so I can set up a specialized lake home search that can be emailed to you.  My email is
