Boating on Elizabeth Lake in Waterford MichiganA large part of Elizabeth Lake in Waterford is 40 feet deep or more in most of the lake. Elizabeth Lake is one of Oakland County's MI most sought after lakes.  It is relatively close to Telegraph Rd which makes the commute to work easier.  With lots of activities going on for any boating enthusiast lake buyers want homes on the lake.  Much of the lake is sandy bottom which makes it great for lake home owners because they can swim right in front of their home.  Being a private lake keeps the boat traffic down.  But at the same time you can Jet ski, tube, fish, or do what ever you want because the lake is good size (363 acres).  

  • All sports lake                      Yes
  • Private                                 Yes
  • Size                                     363 acres
  • Maximum Depth                   72 feet

Elizabeth Lake in Waterford Michigan

Here is a current list of lakefront homes for sale on the lake

There are no homes for sale Elizabeth Lake Waterford MI as of 9/20/2018.  If you are looking and this date is old go to the search by map tab at the top of the page to see what is currently for sale.  If you see any homes that you would like to see the interior of text, call or email me at (248) 310-6239 or yesmyrealtor@gmail.com   

Should you avoid the so called "Party Lake" or not.   It always amazes me when one of my buyer clients tells me they want to avoid a certain lake because it is a party lake.  As far as I am concerned almost all of the big all sports lake has a "gathering spot".  People come to these shallow or sand bar area to talk and hang out with friends.  On most lakes there is cold drinks involved.  People are respectful in most cases on the lake.  There is not going to be one boat blaring out loud music because somebody else is going to say something about the loud music.  Most of these sand bars do attract more people that drink.  But you are not going to hear them from your house unless you are close to the sandbar.  So don't discount a whole lake because of what you have heard.

Just don't buy on near the sandbar.  There are probably a hundred families on White Lake that do not visit some of the sand bars.  It doesn't affect their way of life on the lake.  Others go when they want.  There many children that are out playing in the water while the parents are talking with friends.  The parents play with the kids and over all they have fun at the sandbars.  Is it so loud that you can't hear other people talk two boats down.   No!  Yes there are people drink and yes some get drunk.  But it doesn't affect the other people on the sandbar and most likely does not affect people at their homes. Or when they are going around the lake tubing or on the pontoon. One doesn't affect the other.

I think it is crazy to avoid any lake because somebody says it is a party lake.  There is no lake in SE Michigan that is so crazy with drunks.  If you don't want to participate you don't have too.  Beleive or not somebody once told me Union Lake was a party lake and not to buy on it.  Everybody has an opinion.  Don't let it stop you from buying on a lake.   Don't let one persons opinion of Elizabeth Lake in Oakland County stop you from looking at houses on it.

How to sell your lake home

Relaxing on the lakeChairs, Chairs, Chairs is one of my home selling tips when selling a lakefront home on Elizabeth Lake.  Why are chairs a home selling tip?

When selling a lake home we are selling a lifestyle.  We are appealing to the buyers sellers senses and emotiions.  It's about the lake views.  The thought of relaxing after a hard day at work.  The idea of seeing a sunset.  The thought of relaxing by the lake watching the water and wild life.

Staging your lake house chairs  

Lake home stagingHow simple is that?  Place some chairs looking out at the lake?  Don't have any colorful chairs?  A $50 investment is worth it.

For more great and simple tips give me a call or email for me to come out to your home.  I want to get you the most money possible for you house.  Email me at YesMyRealtor@gmail.com or text/call me at (248) 310-6239

The homes on Elizabeth Lake Waterford MI are what I call regular homes.  There are some bigger luxury estate homes on the lake too.  You can still find small cottages and you will find lakefront homes on the north side of the Lake on Motorway that are on good sized lots.  On the south side of the lake are homes on narrower and smaller lots.  If you have questions feel free to text, call or email me at (248) 310-6239 or yesmyrealtor@gmail.com.
