Rush Lake real estate Livingston County MI

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.

 Buying a Metro Detroit lake home is different than buying a home in a subdivision.  We are adding the size, the type of lake, and many other criteria you will have to consider.  Here are some more considerations. The type of lake bottom i.e. whether is sandy or mucky.  We even have to consider sunsets, and type of terrain.  Knowing lake homes on Rush Lake in Hamburg Twp is important. Michigan may help you make an easier decision.  I hope this page helps you.  Just browse through the website and you will find all sorts on info on all sports lakes, size, and depths of the local lakes in Oakland, and Livingston County.  Search the latest Listings "Oakland County Lake Foreclosures For Sale”

 The 138 acre measurement came from a water quality paper I found on line.  The 100 acre measurement came from a private source that listed all the Livingston County Michigan Lakes.  I have found that source to be wrong before.  So Rush Lake Hamburg MI is somewhere between 100 - 138 acres in size.

It has four very small islands that add up to be about 2 acres in size.  The mean depth of the lake is 4.4' deep.  There is about 22112 feet of shoreline including several canals, but not the islands. 

The children on the lake go to Pinckney Schools.

I will speak from my own experience.  My wife and I lived in a Livonia subdivision for 22 years.  I enjoyed living in Livonia for so many years.  I had a good life.  I enjoyed working in my garden.  On weekends we went out with friends.  We went out to dinner.  We went to local festivals.  We went up north to friend's places on lakes.  We did not live on a lake.  We went to other places than our home to have fun.

That is one of the main differences of lake living.  Lake homes are the fun places to go to.  Your lake home is the place your friends, your family will like to come to.  If you are like so many lake home owners you may not want to go anywhere else.  The years of going to festival like Arts, Beats, and Eats because you have nothing else to do may be gone. 

What the difference of city living versus owning a lake home is that your lake home is a good destination.   Your lake home is the go to fun place.  I have heard so many lake home owners say that they sometimes pass up graduations, wedding, and family gatherings because they do not want to miss out on a beautiful day at the lake.  I went to Jimmy Buffet for years.  One summer we were sitting out tailgating in 90+ degree heat.  All I could think of is being on the lake.  The next year we did not go back to Jimmy Buffet's concert.  I would rather be at the lake.

So it is your choice.  Do you want your next lake home to be fun place or would you rather live in a subdivision and have to go out of your home to have fun.  What would you rather do?  I myself moved to a lake home.

Other nearby lakes are Bass Lake, Mohican Lake, Tioga Lake, Cordley Lake, and Oneida Lake.
