Bush Lake Holly MichiganIf you have been considering or looking at waterfront homes for sale on Bush Lake in Holly or any other lake the subject of private lake versus public lake may have come up.  What is better a private lake or a public lake?  A private lake no doubt has less traffic than a public lake that has a DNR lauch site on it.  Where it gets a little confusing is when a private lake has a marina on it or has some subdivisions out lots that have docking priveledges on the lake.  Those extra boat docks may be more than if a lake was public.  You as a buyer may want to know if there is a marina that rents spots on the lake, or how many subdivisions have boat docking facilities on the lake.

I myself believe that the extra boat traffic isn't horrible.  I live on White Lake.  We do get people from fishing tournaments on the lake and other boaters.  On the other side of the coin a private lake is going to be more restrictive.  You may not be able to put a friends boat on the lake for "the fire works show" or have them bring over a jet ski to go with you on the lake.  There are rules you can't get around on some private lakes.  So know the rules before you buy.  I don't believe any of them are show stoppers, but they may be for you.  I also don't believe that off lake people cause any more problems, or litter more.  A litter bug is a litter bug.  They will be tossing stuff off the boat whether they live on the lake or not.  I have buyers that are adamant about buying only on a private lake.  

Save thousands and thousands of dollars when selling your home.  I have some of the lowest home selling commissions.  Why pay full commission to a real estate agent and give away your hard earned money.  Are you willing  to over pay for selling your home?  Give me a text or call today 248-310-6239 to see how much your home is worth and how much you can keep in your pocket. 

Do you know if Bush Lake Homes in Holly Michigan are the perfect fit for you?  It is sometimes tougher to find that  home on lake because there are so many more variables to a lake home than a home in a subdivision.  Now you will be thinking about the width of lake frontage, what type of lake bottom (sandy or mucky) and even lake views.  Parking for friends and family will be a concern, as is the type of lake.  Is it private or public, all sports or not.  Depth and size of the lake may be important factors fo you.  So having a good lake realtor that can get you answers to your questions is important.

Lake home selling tips

If you are selling a waterfront home on Bush Lake here is a quick home selling tip.

Painting is one of the biggest bangs for your buck.  I cannot stress this enough.  If you have dings and black marks on the walls or scuffed up trim work home buyers are going to notice.  This is going to cost you in terms of offer price. IT'S A FACT Today's home buyers want the house move in ready.  The majority of lake home buyers are the same way.  They will pass up a house that needs work and buy the house that is more updated and move in ready.  I have seen houses sit for months and months because the sellers did not want to invest the time or money to paint the house.  Then I have seen them sell in under two weeks once they were painted.  Not painting your lake home could cost you $10,000 or more in the sale price

You will definitely get the money you invest in painting back and them some.  My goal is to help you get the most for your home.   If you are thinking of listing give me a call at (248) 310-6239
