Gilbert Lake Bloomfield Twp MIGilbert Lake is a no speed boat, electric motor lake. Gilbert Lake is what I would call a more prestigious lake.  With it's easy access to Telegraph and close proximity to the freeways and Birmingham, and West Bloomfield the lake draws a higher demographic resident. 

Gilbert Lake has two islands on the lake.  Some of the lake homes sit up on the hillside.  Most of the lake lots slope gently down to the lake.  So stairs are not needed on most of the lots.

  • All sports lake                  No   
  • Private                             Yes   
  • Size                                 50 acres   
  • Maximum Depth              18 feet    

Lake living is a wonderful way of life.  Everybody loves going to a lake, (at least most people enjoy it).  When you have a lake home you will probably invite family and friends out to have fun on the lake with you.  Whether is is just a couple of friends or a large party you will have many great memories from your lake home on Gilbert Lake Bloomfield Township.  Whether you buy a lake home in White Lake or any Metro Detroit community a lake home makes your life more active.  Many times you become more social just simply because you are out of the house more.  You will be on the lake or out in the yard more enjoy the sights and sounds of the lake.

Home selling tips for lake houses

When you are selling a home whether it is a Gilbert Lake house in Commerce or a home off the lake you have to think of yourself as a landlord.  What I mean by is you want to prepare your lake home for sale.....You want to make it look as nice as possible but DO IT AS INEXPENSIVELY AS POSSIBLE.  You do not want to spend a lot of money on fixing up your home.  You want the biggest return on your dollar as possible.  You want to walk away with as much money in your pocket as possible.

The trick is to be smart.   Let's say you should put granite in the kitchen.  Granite counter tops come in many different grades.  You want to put in the lowest grade/least expensive granite that you can.  Granite that will still make the kitchen look great.  It is the same with flooring.  If you could use the same pad it would be the smart thing to do when putting in carpeting.  Or buy the 6# pad versus the 8#.  Also buy a neutral colored inexpensive carpeting instead of the top of the line carpeting.


That is how to prepare your home for sale.  Shop for contractors, find a good inexpensive one that does good work versus an expensive one.  This is how to get your home on Gilbert Lake ready for sale
