There’s little doubt that Southeastern Michigan is king of lakefront homes and condos. There are so many popular lakes in Oakland County Michigan. There are lakefront homes for sale on most of the following lakes.  Wouldn't you like to live on a lake year round and still have a short drive to work.  So how do you choose which Metro Detroit lake to live on?  Read the information below to find that answer.

Public or private may be one of the questions you are asking yourself when considering whether to buy on Murray lake in highland .  I would have to agree that public lakes are busier.  One of the alternatives is if you like a home on a public lake is buy a home on a bay or canal of the lake.  Stay away from the lake property on the point or in the major traffic pattern.  Being on a small bay or in a corner of the lake will probably have you out of the major water sports traffic pattern.  Some of the fun on the lake is seeing the good wakeboarders and skiers go by.

Welcome to Southeastern Michigan’s premier resource for all lake and real estate information and services in the area. I hope you enjoy your visit and explore everything my realty website has to offer, including links to the latest waterfront property searches.

There are so many great benefits of living on a lake.  One benefit is all the sights and sounds of nature that you will get to enjoy when you have Southeastern Michigan lake home.  Imagine yourself in front of the fireplace when the snow is falling on the lake, or in the fall with all the beautiful fall colors.  Or maybe enjoying the sun bouncing off the waves while sitting on your deck with family and friends.  So much to take in when on the lake.

Mallards Landing Subdivision Murray Lake Highland MI

So what county should you buy a lake home in?  You should not base your decision on buying a lake home in on a county.  It should be about convenience.  If you are thinking about commuting to work which lakes, which counties will work best for you?  You do not want to be driving an hour and a half back and forth to work when you could have been driving only 45 minutes.

Custom image 1

Another factor in many of my client’s decisions is not only drive time to work, but also how far away are their kids.  How far do the kids have to drive to get to the lake home, or Lake Cottage?  I have had clients that have kids in Lansing and one in Mt Clemens.  So they want the lake cottage to be somewhere in between.  They may have one child in Ann Arbor and one in Farmington Hills.  The clients may be retired so they have no drive time.  It is more about convenience to the kids.

All of your metro Detroit Counties have lake or ponds.  But most of them are in Oakland and Livingston County all have lakes.  All lakes are different.  So besides drive time it may boil down to the lake and the lake home you can find.  If you are not restricted by drive time then you have a wide open choice of four counties and hundreds of lakes.

So there is no best county to buy a lake home in.  There is no best city to buy a cottage in.  It is all about your criteria, your wants.  If you have no travel restrictions or times you will have many choices.  Feel free to email me what you are looking for in a lake home so I can set up a specialized lake home search that can be emailed to you.  My email is
