Long Lake in Commerce Township MI is only about 10 minutes from M-5 which is the gateway to all the expressways. You are about 20 minutes to 12 Oaks Mall in Novi. The children on the lake go to Walled Lake schools. It is not a huge lake but it is big enough to ski, tube, and jet-ski on comfortably. The lake was much shallower but in 1961-1965 they had the whole lake dredged at the cost of $185,000. It is a kettle lake.
Long Lake front homes are like so many other Oakland County Lakes. There are old and new homes next to each other. In fact in fall of 2011 they were bulldozing an area on the lake to put some new homes in. The homes were built between the 1930's - 2000's. Many of the old cottages have been added onto and remodeled. Some of them are very nice year round homes now. The children that live on the lake attend Walled Lake Schools.
What is a little different from Union Lake across the street is that there are no high end large estate style luxury homes on the lake. The lakefront homes range from about 900 square feet to over 2500 square feet.
Most of Long Lake properties range from 35' to 100' of lake frontage. There are only a few properties that have large frontage. There are no homes that have acreage on the lake.

Long Lake Location
Long Lake is located in Commerce Township Oakland County MI. It is north of Wise Rd, south of Cooley Lake Rd, east of Carroll Lake Rd and west of Union Lake Rd .

When you buy or sell a lake property factors like property size, amount of parking, where the home sits (faces) does make a difference to the current or future home buyers.

Here is what a previous client said about me!
It´s been 2 months since we moved into our new Canton condo and we
are very happy with it. In the beginning we didn´t even
know what we needed but with your help, guidance and
patience we chose the best condo in the area with the best
price according to our needs. We were looking all over. We looked in Novi, Warrren, Canton, Farmington Hills. But we finally found our Canton condo. We appreciate everything you
have done for us. We would recommend you without hesitation
to everyone we know who wants to buy or sell a house. "
