Green Lake is a ELECTRIC MOTOR ONLY LAKE. No gas motors are allowed on the lake. So you will see only man powered, electric powered, and wind powered boats on the lake.
Green Lake in West Bloomfield is one of the few larger lakes that is electric motor only. The other electric motor only lakes that is over 40 acres I know of in Southeastern Michigan is Bogie Lake. Stonewater subdivision lakes in Northville, Harvey Lake, and other smaller Oakland County Lakes are electric motors or man powered.
Green Lake is the only large Oakland County Lake that caters to the quiet and calm aspect of lake living. There won't be any jet skier on the lake waking you up or disturbing you while you are relaxing on your deck!
Green Lake homes command a higher dollar price for two reasons. It is in West Bloomfield with West Bloomfield schools and because it is a rare non-motorized lake (though there is one street that is Walled Lake Schools).
Green Lake properties range in size from 50' frontage to over a one acre lots. Some of the lake properties have 172' frontage! On one side of the lake some of the lake homes do sit on Commerce Rd which is a busier street.
We’re so fortunate to have thousands of lakefront homes and cottages throughout Metro Detroit area and the surrounding counties. It makes it great to be able to have a year round house on a lake and not have to travel to enjoy the lake. And as your local lakes area real estate specialists, I am uniquely qualified to help you look for waterfront properties for sale in your desired area. Below on this page is some of the information I have gathered about Green Lake waterfront homes in West Bloomfield Michigan.
Whether you’re looking for a lake house that can accommodate weekend guests or a full sized year round lake property for your immediate family, you’ll find plenty of lake houses for sale in Southeastern Michigan. Work with a local lakeshore specialist to help you find the right location and lake property for you. There are over 420 lakes in Oakland County and there are many lake front homes to choose from. Some are all sports lakes and some are not. It takes a lake realtor to really know and point out some of the lakes you may not know about. Too many lake home buyers start out with a realtor that is not qualified or doesn’t know enough about our local lakes. I have had many clients buy homes on lakes they knew nothing about until I showed them the lake, but the lake fit them and their family better than other lakes they had seen. They found their dream lake home! Lake real estate is unique so don’t trust your future on a realtor that doesn’t know the lakes in Southeastern Michigan. Search lakefront home listings in Oakland County
Standard for Oakland County Lakes you will find a few of the older homes still left on the lake. But the majority of the lake front homes have been re-modeled or new luxury homes with modern ammenities have been built.
There are some homes over 6000 square feet on the lake. So I would call this more of an upscale lake. The homes are well -kept and you won't find lots of trailers and junk in the yards.
Feel free to call me to ask me questions about current Lake homes.

The kids that live on the lake go to West Bloomfield Schools and some do live in the Walled Lake School district.
My recommendation to you is to get a survey when you buy a lake home. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU DO SO. I have a cottage on White Lake and have seen a few battles between home owners over the lot lines. Twice I have seen where the owners were completely surprised that they did not own the land they were fighting over. If you have a staked survey you will not have any surprise.
If you are buying a waterfront property look up the property lines at the county or the community the home is in. I have seen lakefront homes sold that were not really Lake Front. They had a subdivision or community access in front of them. I have seen lot lines that angle. Where the owners thought they owned a perfect rectangle instead it was an rectangle at an angle.
So many home owners and lake home owners assume they know the lot lines. But many of them do not. It is important to get a staked survey so there are not property disputes with neighbors. On White Lake in White Lake Township there was a home sold years ago as a lakefront home. It became a law suit when the owners found out that the neighbors actually owned the lakefront in front of their home. They ended up letting the home go back to the bank.
I have seen several lake homes listed this year that were not actually Lake Front. They had a lake view but they did not actually own to the lake. It is up to you the buyer to do the research to make sure of that.
Other local West Bloomfield Township Lakes and Lake homes for sale are Upper Straits Lake, Middle Straits Lake, Union Lake, Orchard Lake, and Cass Lake

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.
