Orchard Lake in Orchard Lake MIWhen you buy a lake home in Oakland County you have to remember all these lakes used to be weekend getaways for the residents of Detroit back in the 1920's to 1960's.  That becomes a problem for some lake home buyers because that big beautiful lake house on Orchard Lake in Orchard Lake MI may be right next door to old tiny unkept lake cottage.  In most cases having an old house next to you does not affect the value of the home you are looking at.  Only if it is in major disrepair may it affect the value.  The best part is if you buy the home, most likely by the time you sell that little home is going to be fixed up.  There is so much renovation, and rebuilding going on the lakes.  It's not unusual to see 4 or 5 houses being built or remodeled on a lake at a time.  Lake homes are getting nicer and nicer each year. 

Orchard Lake Real estate is what I would call high end real estate. There are many luxury lakefront homes that have sold for over a million dollars. You won't be finding $200,000 cottages on this lake. Even small homes will be sold for the building site. We call them tear down lake homes. The lakefront home will be torn down and a newer, bigger home will be built.
