Aerial view of Deer Lake in Clarkston MI

Deer Lakefront homes for sale. Most high end lake houses are taking much longer to sell in 2010 and 2011.  It's the lower priced lake homes that have been selling.  This is an nice all sports lake that has many varieties of  water front properties. 

There are 1000-7000 square foot lake homes around the lake.  There are very few of the 1920's 1000 square foot ranches that you see on many Oakland County lakes. Most of the homes on the lake were built after the 1960's and there are quite a few that were built in the 1990's and 2000's.  Deer Lake home styles are:

  • cape cods
  • colonial style homes
  • ranches
  • split levels

Many lakefront home buyers are what I call "water people".  The sight and sound of water relaxes them and gives them a good feeling.  That's why they have the dream of living on the lake.  They are the type of people that will take tropical vacations to some beach resort.  You too may have that dream of living on the lake year round.  It truly is an amazing way of life.  I myself live on White Lake.  Before I lived in Livonia for 23 years.  I sometimes wonder what I did at night or on the weekends back in Livonia.  My life has changed so much for the better by living on a lake.  I think yours will too.  Feel free to call, text, or email me with questions or to see any lake home.  Whether you are buying a Deer Lake home in Independence or selling one I can help you.

Lake house selling tips

If you are selling a Deer Lake home here is a quick home selling tip.

Don't forget about staging the outside.  After all lake home  buyers are really interested in the lake.  Strategically position 2 or 3 chairs out by the lake.  Set the outside table for a party.  Having a tube, a couple of fishing poles or water skis out by the dock sets the tone of how much fun is on the lake.

Clean up the lake shore and be sure to have the lake side looking really good.  Store away all the junk around the house.  Make the outside look as good as the insdie or better.  It will pay some big dividends for you.

Selling a lake house is diffent than selling a regular house.  You are selling a lifestyle not just a home.  Let's get you the best price possible by pulling out all the stops and using no-cost staging tips.  If you are thinking of listing give me a call to see how I can help you (248) 310-6239
