Homes on Leonard Lake in Highland MIDid 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.

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

Michigan home buyer bonus
Leonard Lake in Highland Mi is not too far from my house.  I would call the homes on the lake average as none of them are over 2200 square feet.  So if you are looking for a big all sports lake with mega mansions this is not the lake.  If you have questions feel free to text, call or email me at (248) 310-6239 or
