So who knows more about Grass lake in White Lake than your or I? It is the neighbors and people who live on the lake. I always urge my lake home buyers to drive the neighborhood. Talk to the people who live there. Ask them the questions that worry you. They will be the best source of information on what is happening on the lake, about the lake association, and even how they like the lake, and the waterfront real estate. What you want is a talkative neighbor.
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.

Grass Lake in White Lake MI is one of many Southeastern Michigan lakes that haven't been developed because it isn't a big lake and it isn't deep. Grass Lake is only 30.6 acres and is only about 10 ft deep. It has multiple islands.
It has a few houses on the lake with a few sitting up on the hillside. To get to Grass Lake from Ormand Rd it is a gravel road. But on west side of the lake it is a paved road and on the east side it is a gravel road.
The children that live on the lake go to Huron Valley School System.
I have been told by two people it is an all sports lake and another said it was an electric motors only lake. So I am going that it is an all sports lake. If you know please email me so I can up date this. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org
What are some of the factors that affect the price of a lake property? Of course the house and size of the house does. The size of the frontage on the lake does influence the price of the lake home too. Just as the size of the home influences the sales price so does the lake frontage. A hundred foot lot on Maceday Lake in Waterford will be worth more than a 35' lot.
Yes back in the early day's (the 1920's) some lake lots were only 35' because the cottages were too small. Over the years some lake home owners have bought up the neighbors lots, bulldozed other homes down, or split a lot with the neighbor to make their lots bigger. Most lake lots in Livingston and Lake Properties in Oakland County and the Metro Detroit have Lake Frontage that ranges from 35'- to about 150' on average. Of course there are homes that have large lake frontage of over 200'. I have seen some that are over a 1000' feet when they are on a peninsula of a lake. That is always nice because you have a panoramic view from the property and the home. I have even sold a small lake property of 26'. Back in the day they did not have side setbacks.=
I have seen some lake homes that are only one foot from the lot lines. It is very important when you buy a lake home to get a staked survey if you can. I always recommend to any buyer to look up the property lot lines. I have seen several homes listed this year where they were advertised as Lake Front yet the property never actually touched the water. It is definitely buyer beware. So be smart and look up the lot lines yourself.

Here is what a previous client had to say about me!
"I first started looking at real estate listings online nearly a year ago, but at first I thought I´d never really buy one. I hadn´t been paying attention and thought I still couldn´t afford to buy a place. I also had no experience in buying a home and I wanted to make sure I knew what I was doing before I bought. For most questions I would search online, the topic had been discussed on Russ´ blog. Not only that, he was local. Over the summer, I finally decided to start physically looking at houses and Russ was the only choice.
My preferred method of contact was email and he always responded in a timely fashion. He was patient with this first-time home buyer, and worked with me through my initial bid process. I was surprised when they accepted the bid! The transaction went smoothly, with Russ patiently answering any questions and concerns I had. From the first time we looked at houses to the closing was exactly one month. I´ve been here five months now and people still marvel at what I got for the price I paid. When I requested a plumber, he was able to provide one was lived close by and was economical."
Thanks for everything, Russ.
