Forest Lake homes Bloomfield MichiganBloomfield Township is one of Michigan's most sought after areas for affluent and influential home buyers.  There are only a few lakes in the township.  So it makes Forest Lake in Oakland County MI even more desirable.

The children on the lake go to Bloomfield Hills schools.  Some of the lakefront homes also have lake access to Upper Long Lake or Lower Long Lake.  Some of them are part of a gated community and have view of Forest Lake Country Club golf course.

Lakefront home selling tips

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

Light and view of the lake is a mjor selling point of your home.  Maximize the views of the lake.  I myself hate washing windows, but when selling your lake home make those windows shine.  Hire a professional if necessary.  It will be worth the money.  Next take out all the screens if you use air conditioning.  Store them in the garage.  Your view will be better without the screens in the windows.  Open all the drapes and shades on any lakeview window.  Trim up any bushes or low hanging tree limbs that block the view of the lake.   

Selling a lake home is different than selling a regular home simply because the focus is just not the house.  You have to highlight the lake and what it means to potential buyers.  My goal is to help you get top dollar for your home.   If you want top dollar for your home give me a call or text at (248) 310-6239

 

Forest Lake Bloomfield MI

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

There are no homes for sale Forest Lake Bloomfield 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 

 Did you know that lake homes hold their values better than most non lake homes?  One of the reasons is that there is a limited amount of lake homes in the metro Detroit area.  There is always a demand whether it is a strong sellers market or a down turn.  Many times in down turns lake home buyers feel they can finally afford a lake home because of the dip in prices.  As a lake realtor I know that there are many lake home buyers out there.  I have prospective lake home buyers that have been looking for sometimes 3 or 4 years before they buy.  It's not unusual for lake home buyers to take two years before they pull the trigger and find there dream lake house.  That house on Forest Lake in Bloomfield may not be exactly the right one but next year they may find one they love on Lake Sherwood.  

Here is where the lake is at
