Search White Lake water front
As a lakes area realtor I feel it is very important for you the lake home buyer to know as much about the lake you are buying on. When I first started in this business there was no one website to find out about our local Oakland County and Livingston County lakes. So I put this website together so you and other home buyers can find the information you need about our local lakes. Lakefront home buying is a little tougher than buying a regular home. Not only do you have to find the home you want but you also have to find the right lake, and the right lake bottom too. So it gets a little trickier. So if your realtor is not asking you about what you want to do on the lake, or what type of boat you are thinking of getting then you DO NOT HAVE THE RIGHT REALTOR to buy a lake front home. Knowing what you want to do on the lake is important.
You may want to fish, or maybe swim with the grandkids. Or you may want to tube or wakeboard. You do not want to be going around and around in a small circle on a lake. We do not want you on a small lake if you love tubing and wakeboard with family and friends. You need the space to do that. So I home the information below on lake homes on Pontiac in Waterford Michigan gives you a glimpse of what to look for in a lake. Search "Oakland County Cottages & Lake Homes For Sale”
Pontiac Lake Public Access
Lots of Public access through the Pontiac State Recreation area or the marinas listed below. There are 84 public parking spots at the recreation area alone. So Pontiac Lake is an easy lake to get on being so close to M-59.

Pontiac Lake Waterfront homes
In 2009 Pontiac Lake waterfront homes for sale prices ranged from a $100,000 to $400,000. In the 365 days before July 18, 2009 Pontiac Lake properties sold from a 700 square foot ranch $60,000 up to a 2393 colonial for $330,000. If you are looking for an upscale private lake with large homes then Pontiac Lake isn't the lake for you. Pontiac Lake has some small apartments that rent for as cheap as $300 a month right on the lake. There are condos across from the lake too. And there is even a small mobile home park on the lake. So there are not going to be any 5000 square foot Pontiac lakefront homes for you to chose from.
Many buyers will just pass on a lake home if the beat up, run down house next door has tons of junk outside. One of the frequent questions I hear over and over is....How much does the crummy house next door drag my house's value down or this lake home's value down? It is very common on Metro Detroit lakes that a big beautiful home is right next door to a crummy or ugly house. You can have a $500,000 lake home next to a fixer upper or a tear down home.
It is not unusual. So how much does the crummy house next door bring the value down? Of course some lake home buyers will not buy the nice home next door to the crummy house. So you may eliminate some lake home buyers because of that house.
However some lake buyers do not care about the rundown house next door. They are just happy getting the home of their dreams. During the time that they live there the home may be sold, or renovated. You never know. There is such a limited amount of lake homes out there. Some buyers are constantly looking for the good bones house that they can remodel and make their own. Sometimes if the lake lot is big enough the home may be added on to or completely torn down and re-built. So it is up to you the buyer whether you can handle living next door to a crummy house.
is catergorically smaller cottages. No mega mansions here. The existing homes were built starting in about 1938 and were still being built in the early 200's. Some homes have been remodeled or they have been torn down to be rebuilt. Some have been built as late as the 1990's. There are small ranches from about 600 square ft to colonials as big as 2400 square feet. There are also bungalows and Cape Cod homes on the lake.

Pontiac Lake White Lake Oakland County General Info
There are several Marinas on the Lake which have boats to rent and picnic areas to enjoy the lake. So you can launch your boat at these marinas and feel safe about getting your boat fixed if you are in trouble.
What is nice about the lake is there are a few peninsulas and 17 islands to cruise around. The shoreline is about 25% natural it makes you feel up north. In fact drive Gale Rd north of the lake and you will feel like you are up north. That was true until the tornado of 2021.
There are several stores and even a Chinese Restaurant that are on M-59 & the lake within walking distance. Unfortunately the Chinese Restaurant has no outdoor seating on the lake. The Chinese restaurant closed during covid.
Pontiac Lake Recreation surrounds 1/2 the lake covering over 3745 acres. There is a nice beach with concession stand, playground, changing facilities, picnic area and shelters, hiking trails, public boat launch with plenty of parking. It is a great place to enjoy Pontiac Lake if you don't own any lakefront property. DNR permit passes required.

Here is what a previous client said about me!
My Husband and I have been in our new home for about a year now and we both feel that it would not have been possible without your help. We wanted to write and let you know that we appreciate everything you have done for us. I want to thank you for showing us around and negotiating to help us get an excellent home that meets all of my needs.
