Foley Lake White Lake MI information 

As a lake realtor I feel it is very important for you the lake home buyer to know as much about the lake you are buying on.  When I first started in this business there was no one spot to find out about our local Oakland County and Livingston County lakes.  So I put this website together so you can find the information you need.  Lake home buying is a little tougher than buying a regular home.  Not only do you have to find the home you want but you also have to find the right lake, and the right lake bottom too.  So it gets a little trickier.  So if your realtor is not asking you about what you want to do on the lake, or what type of boat you are thinking of getting then you DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT REALTOR to buy a lake front home.  Knowing what you want to do on the lake is important.

What are the top lakes in the area?  If you ask that to any lake home owner they are going to say their lake.  Like living in a city.   Everybody thinks theirs is the best.  It is the same way with lakes.  So what are the best lakes?

It depends on what you want to do.  You may want to slalom ski every morning.  Then a Michigan lake with a ski course is the best lake for you.  You may get bored on one lake so the Portage chain of Lakes or the Half Moon chain of lakes is better suited for you.

The top lake is the lake that best fits your needs.  Most lakes in the area now have weed control.  Most have the same water quality.  Some areas are ahead in getting sewers around them.  Most lakes now are fairly stable in the lake levels.  They are controlled by dams or many lakes have augmentation wells to keep the lake levels at a stable level.

So what is the best lake?  It depends on your needs.  I will usually be able to give you a list of big all sports lakes?  Or list of non motorized lakes?  Or lakes in West Bloomfield?  Or nice kayak lakes?  Or maybe you want lakes with an up-north feel.

The best lake for you may be totally different than for my next buyer.  So send me an email to  Let me know what you are looking for and I will help you find the best lake for you and your family.  You can also call me at (248)310-6239
