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 Leonard Lake in Highland may not be exactly the right one but next year they may find one they love on Lake Sherwood.

Lake house selling tips
If you are selling a Leonard 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.
