 Are you thinking of buying on Forest lake in Bloomfield .  Many of our southeastern Michigan lakes are just as busy in the winter as they are in the summer.  There is snowmobiling, ice skating, hockey, 4 wheelers on some lakes.  Some of the lake associations have community winter activities for the lake residents.  Just be sure that the ice is safe before you venture out.

 So you may be thinking of selling an Oakland County waterfront home or maybe considering finding a local cottage for a summer getaway.  That is one of the best benefits of finding a waterfront property in Oakland County.  The ease of getting there and the limited time it will take.  No four hour rides up north, or being stuck in holiday traffic.  You can get back and forth to work and be on the lake every weekend.  Buying a lakefront cottage in Southeastern Michigan makes sense.  The money you save in gas alone is a benefit.  

 Another great part of the lake living is all the memories you are going to make.  Good times with family on the boat, bonfires on warm summer nights, your kids catching fish.  (Or any fish….they always get so excited)  These good times will be etched in your mind forever. 

Below you will find data and lots of info on forest Lake waterfront properties in Bloomfield Michigan. 

 My goal as your Realtor is to help you become knowledgeable about our local lakes so you know what you are buying.  The more knowledgeable you are about the lakes the easier and more comfortable you will be buying a lake home.  If you are selling your home you will realize that hiring one of the top lake realtors in the area that knows your lake will speed the sale.  After all you found Michigan’s top website for lake homes, wouldn’t you like your home advertised here?  .  Just browse through the website and you will find all sorts on info on all sports lakes in Oakland County and Livingston, size, and depths of the local lakes in Oakland, and Livingston County.  Search Listings "Michigan Lakefront Homes For Sale”


Bloomfield Township is one of Michigan's most sought after areas for affluent and influential home buyers.  There are only a few lakes in the township.  So it makes Forest Lake in Oakland County MI even more desirable.

Forest Lake does have lake access homes. 

Focusing in 

With so many different lakes in Southeastern Michigan is it not confusing?  There are hundreds of lakes in Oakland County and thousands of lake homes.  However lake homes do not turn over as quickly as regular homes.  Sometimes lake homes stay in the family for generations.  Some of my clients hang onto the lake home for years in the hopes the kids will want it.

Michigan lakefront home buyer bonusBut lets talk about narrowing your lake home search.  First of all where would you like to have the lake home at?  Does it have to be within an hour of work?  Or within a certain distance from your kids?  Next what type of lake are you looking for?  An all sports lake where you can use Jet Ski, tube, and wakeboard on?  Or would you prefer a quiet non-motorized lake?

The next step is to determine what type of lake home are you looking for?  All of these items will help you narrow your search down.  Then you will not be jumping all over southern Michigan trying to find a home.  Give me a call on my cell phone if you have questions on where to start.  My email is and my cell is (248)310-6239
