Lotus Lake homes Waterford MI Lotus Lake connects to Maceday Lake. There is a paved access ramp that allow 16 vehicles to park.  Together Lotus Lake and Maceday Lake total 419 acres, which makes them the 11th largest Oakland County lake. The lake lies in both Waterford Township and Independence Township in Oakland County Michigan.  Depending on where you live on the lake will determine whether your children go to Clarkston Schools or Waterford Schools. Public access is available on Williams Lake Rd on the south side of Maceday Lake. There is one island on the lake, Blain Island.  There is plenty of room for any boating sport you want to do.  Lotus Lake (combined with Maceday) is wide enough and deep enough to sail on.  There is plenty of shoreline and lake homes to look at if you are a pontoon person.

The return on investment on buying a lake house on Lotus Lake Waterford Mi is not only monetary, but emotionally.   Lake home prices tend to retain their value better during economic downturns.  Lake home prices will continue to rise over the long term simply because there is no more lake property being made in the metro Detroit area.  The demand is always going to be high.  But you are missing out on the most important return that you will get.  The happiness of your family, the great memories that you will be making on the lake is the best return on your investment.  After all life isn't all about money.  It's about family, happiness, and the life you lead.  Having a lake home will have you spending more time with your family on the lake.

Home selling tips for lake houses

When you are selling a home whether it is a Lotus 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 Clark Lake ready for sale
