Long Lake Commerce Michigan

Long Lake real estate Oakland County MI

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.

Save thousands and thousands of dollars when selling your home.  I have some of the lowest home selling commissions.  Why pay full commission to a real estate agent and give away your hard earned money.  Are you willing  to over pay for selling your home?  Give me a text or call today 248-310-6239 to see how much your home is worth and how much you can keep in your pocket. 

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 .

So many little factors about the lake property determine the price of the lake home.  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.  Lake home owners have parties.  They have friends, and families over on the weekends.  They may need parking for 5 or 6 cars.  Do you have the parking space for your friends?  Or is there some public parking for you.

The larger the lot the pricier the lake home may be.  Acreage on the lake is rare in Southeastern Michigan.  A lake home that is private is a rare commodity.  Most Southeastern Michigan lake properties are close together.  Many lake homes are on lots that range from 35' to 80' in size.  So you are going to see your neighbors in most cases.  Simply because you do not want to obstruct your lake views with trees and bushes.  Besides it would become a battle with your neighbors.  You do not want to put in a tree that will obstruct your neighbors view.  That is one way of creating an enemy fast.

So what is the best side of the lake?  Some people believe another plus for any property is to have a sunset view.  Everybody loves to see the sun set over the lake.  I cannot put a dollar amount on what it is worth, but it does add a little value to the home.  Some home buyers start out trying to buy a sunset view home.


Some dreams are meant to come true.  Let’s try to make your dream of living on a lake real.   Are you with me?  Take the steps to make your dream come true. The lake lifestyle is amazing and once have a home on a lake you will be saying why didn’t you do this years before.  It is something about the tranquility of water that makes it so special.  You will have magical days of watching lake sunsets and watching the wildlife on the lake.   Days of enjoyment on the lake with family and friends.  It is special to see the mist rise off the lake on the cool fall days.  There are so many wonderful Oakland County lakes to choose from.  And if you cannot find an Oakland County lake to fit you then there is Livingston County, Washtenaw County, and Genessee County were there are many other alternatives.   So many different lakes within an hours of Detroit.  There are Oakland County lakefront homes of every size, shape, and age.  It boils down to what you want in a home and what you are going to do on the lake Search Livingston and Oakland County waterfront homes by map.  Zoom in on the lake or area to find your next lake house.

Here is what a previous client said about me!


"Dear Russ,
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. "
