Hamburg Lake Hamburg MI

Hamburg Lake real estate Livingston County MI

Hamburg Lake waterfront homes were built during the years of 1920's to the late 1990's.  I would say most of the homes are between the 1940's and 1960's.

The lake front homes range in size from 620' square feet up to 5000 square feet.  I will tell you about both those homes below to give you an idea of what the extreme ends of the homes are like. But most of  Hamburg Lake homes are in the 1000 to 2000 square foot range.

Hamburg Lake homes Hamburg MI

Hamburg Lake properties range from 60' to 100' of lake frontage.  There are a few over 100' of lake frontage.  Most of the homes are just regular lots but there is at least one that has 1.5 acres.  But you won't find many lake homes with lots of space and privacy on Hamburg Lake. 

There is a 620 square foot ranch home that has 2 bedrooms, 1 bath on a 59' lot that they don't even know when it was built.  The opposite end of the spectrum is the 5000 square foot home built in 1996 that has 6 bedrooms, 4 1/2 bathrooms wiith a finished walkout basement on a 92' lot.

Lake home buyer bonusSo many little factors about the lake property determine the price of the lake home.  When you buy or sell a lake property factors like property size, amount of parking, where the home sits (faces) does make a difference to the current or future home buyers.  Lake home owners have parties.  They have friends, and families over on the weekends.  They may need parking for 5 or 6 cars.  Do you have the parking space for your friends?  Or is there some public parking for you.

The larger the lot the pricier the lake home may be.  Acreage on the lake is rare in Southeastern Michigan.  A lake home that is private is a rare commodity.  Most Southeastern Michigan lake properties are close together.  Many lake homes are on lots that range from 35' to 80' in size.  So you are going to see your neighbors in most cases.  Simply because you do not want to obstruct your lake views with trees and bushes.  Besides it would become a battle with your neighbors.  You do not want to put in a tree that will obstruct your neighbors view.  That is one way of creating an enemy fast.

So what is the best side of the lake?  Some people believe another plus for any property is to have a sunset view.  Everybody loves to see the sun set over the lake.  I cannot put a dollar amount on what it is worth, but it does add a little value to the home.  Some home buyers start out trying to buy a sunset view home.

The last question is do you have the space to add on if that is what you want to do?  Again this is up to you the buyer to go to the local community's building department to find out the restrictions.  There are many rules and regulations when building on a lake.  There is a line of site regulation in some communities.  What I mean by that you cannot build or add on towards the lake if you obstruct your neighbors view.

If you are selling your Southeastern Michigan lake home be sure to share that information of all the little bonuses you have.  The extra parking, the sunset view, the extra space to add on a garage all makes as difference to potential home buyers.  So tell them about it.

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.
