Scott Lake real estate Oakland County

What is the weed control like on scott lake in waterford?  Most of our local lakes in Oakland County have gone to chemical weed control.  The chemicals are supposedly not bad for the environment or for us.  Most chemical weed control companies will post a notice on your property notifying you of when they are going to put the chemicals in and how long you have to stay out of the water.  Some lake residents water their lawn out of the lake.  So the notice will tell you how long to use the lake water.  I believe that the chemical control is quite effective.  However there are some algae and weeds that are not controlled well.  Ask the seller what type of weed control they do.

Have you been considering buying a waterfront property in Oakland County or Livingston County?  There are so many beautiful lakes and lakefront homes close by.  I always wonder why people drive up north for 3, 4, or 5 hours when they can have the same enjoyment here.    No fighting rush hour or holiday weekend traffic to get up north.  I know so many people that have lake cottages less than an hour away.  I know one guy that drives 25 minutes.  So he can wrap up a day on the lake when the sun goes down and still have time to relax at home. No fighting traffic on I-75 or 23. 

There are so many special sights that you are missing right now.  Relax at the end of the day watching the sunset over the lake, or just enjoy the ducks and geese swim by.  It is such a stress reliever to own a lake home.  Search Southeastern Michigan lake estates & waterfront homes by map.  Zoom in on the lake or area to find your dream lake home! 

We have some great all sports lakes in Oakland County, though you may want a quieter lake.  We have Green Lake in West Bloomfield and Lake Ona in White Lake that are electric motor only lakes.  Or you have to paddle.  These lakes are so quiet and relaxing.   The key is what do you want to do on the lakes?  Around metro Detroit we have so many lakes and lake properties to choose from.  It is a great way to enjoy your weekend or a sunny summer day.  Below is detailed info about lakefront homes on scott lake in waterford MI.  If see a home you like give me a call on my cell at 248.310.6239.



On the southside of Scott Lake, Lexington Road has some newer brick homes that were built in the 1990's to mid 2000's.  There were colonials that ranged from 1700 square feet to about 2900 square feet.  They were the newer styles of homes with beautiful spacious kitchens with lots of counter space, larger master bedrooms with master baths and walk-in closets.  They also had first floor laundry rooms just to name a few of the amenities.

But right down the street you have the old 1920's -1980's homes that have been enlarged and remodeled.  Most of the Scott Lake properties on the south side of the lake have 50 - 85' of lake frontage.

Michigan buyers bonusIn some city subdivisions there is the keep up with the Joneses mentality.   Wish I could say that keeping up with the Joneses does not apply on the lakes. It does unfortunately with some of the lake home owners when it comes to boats and toys.  Who has the fastest Jet Ski, or the most expensive boat?  The keeping up with the Joneses does not apply to much to homes.  It is more about the toys.

I guess I would say that the boats and toys are more important the lake house sometimes.  Landscaping on most lake home is simpler.  You are not going to have three level of shrubs or $100,000 front landscaping.  Lake home owners are more about enjoying the lake than taking care of the yard.  Some lake home have little or no landscaping.

What is different about most lake home owners is that they are individualist.  They are not into keeping up with the Joneses.  Part of it that lake homes are not similar.  They vary so much.  So one lady is not going to be able to decorate the same way in her 1500 square foot remodeled cottage as her neighbor in the rebuilt colonial that is 2400 square feet.  Different layouts and different styles.  No keeping up with the Jones.

Many lake homes have beautiful interiors that are well kept and well maintained.  The prestige of lake living is just that.  You get to wake up each morning to the lake.  You get to come home to the lake each night.  You are able to sit on your patio, or take a ride around the lake when you want to.  That is best part of lake live.

Here is what a previous client said about me!   

My husband and I chose Russ to be our real estate agent after a friend highly recommended him.  We were moving here from Canada and only had a few days to look at homes.  When we came in to town, Russ went far above the call of duty.  He had thoroughly planned our 2 days and had numerous homes lined up for us to view.  After talking to us briefly and asking us a few questions before our arrival, he new exactly what types of homes would be ideal for us.  After searching for a short time he found the perfect home for us.  

After the sale, Russ even met our painters, carpet cleaners and home inspector at our new home since we were still out of town.  He also gave us detailed lists of available utility companies, schools, cable services, cleaning companies, house cleaners, fun things to do and wonderful restaurants in the area.  Russ made the entire experience enjoyable and easy.  He has a laid back, genuine personality and my entire family felt comfortable with him immediately.  He feels like a friend not just our real estate agent.

I would HIGHLY recommend Russ to anyone with complete confidence.
