Maceday Lake real estate Oakland County

What do you really want in a Metro Detroit lake home?  Is it more about the lake, the price, the travel time, or about the lake house itself?  Knowing your criteria will help me your realtor narrow your search to specific areas.  I will be able to point out other lakes in Oakland County or other waterfront real estate that you may have not known about.  Over the years I have collected information about Southeastern Michigan lakes to help my clients narrow down their search.  Your wants and needs are important to me and finding you’re the right lake and lake home is important.

Maceday Lake lots range in size from 35' to .7 of an acre. There are homes on Blain Island. Blain Island is almost on the fringe of Maceday and Lotus Lake.

Ranch style homes on the lake range from 900 square feet to over 3200 square feet. Some of the older ranches and bungalows date back to the 1920's. Colonials and contemporary style homes range from 1800 square feet to over 5000 square feet. So there is almost any size home and home style that you could want on Maceday Lake. Children that live on the lake will either attend Clarkston Schools or Waterford Schools.

This is just general information I was able to gather from public records and mls listings. Sizes of the homes and lots may be bigger or smaller. I just want to give you a general idea of Maceday Lake real estate.

Maceday Lake connects to Lotus Lake. There is a paved DNR access ramp that allow 16 parking spots.   There are two islands in the lake totaling 21 acres, so the surface area of the lake is really 231 acres. It connects to Lotus Lake through a shallow canal on the north end. Tree stumps in this area indicate the lake was several feet lower in the recent past than it is now. The level was probably raised when the dam was installed in Waterford to create Van Norman Lake.  Maceday Lake has 18888 feet of shoreline, not including the islands. The elevation of the lake is 966 feet above sea level. The lake is in the Clinton River basin.

Public access is available on Williams Lake Rd on the South side of the lake.

Metro Detroit home buyer bonus

So many times I will get calls from potential lake home buyers.  They have is expecting a similar pricing to non lake homes.  Some buyers think there may be just a slight increase in the price of a lake home.  In 2014 I have been telling lake home buyers that it is hard to find even a cottage that is in good shape under $200,000 on a big all sports lake.  Many in the under $200,000 have major issues.  There are just not that many lake homes on big all sports lakes under $200,000.

To find a "normal home" or "normal ranch home" on a good sized all Sports Lake with a basement under $250,000 is hard to find too.  There are so few of them.  You will find more of them in the $275 - $325,000 range. 

Modern updated homes are harder to find on a lake.  If you want that modern house on good lakefront lot (not on a narrow lot) you most likely are going to be paying $500,000 + to find a nice modern lake home with the modern amenities with open layout, granite counter tops,  and nice master bedroom suite.  You are probably going to be closer to $600,000 + range.

This is just some of what you can expect when buying a lake home in 2014

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. "
