Taggett Lake Highland Twp information

Taggert Lake itself s not very big and is connected to Kellogg Lake by canal.  If you want a lot of space to ski, wakeboard, or jet ski Taggert Lake may not be the lake for you.  It is really just a small round lake.  You would be doing circles to ski.  But if you want a quiet, low traffic all sports lake with large lots then Taggert Lake is an Oakland County Lake you want to visit. The lake is more of a pontoon lake with a small area to ski.

The lake was named for Abram C. Taggett who purchased land adjoining the lake in 1836. They have a well-pump to maintain the levels of the lake.

Are you thinking of buying a waterfront home in Oakland County?   Then you have come to the right Michigan website.  We have the most up to date waterfront listings here.   If you are exploring the possibility of living on the lake in Southeastern Michigan, I have to emphasize that lake homes will cost you more than a home in a subdivision.  There is a premium for a lake.  The bigger the lake the more expensive the lakefront property will be.   Too many times I have potential buyers think they are going to get the same home on the lake as in a sub for the same price. The more desirable the city will add to the cost. 

For example a lake house on Union Lake in West Bloomfield will be pricier than a Waterfront property on Long Lake in Commerce for two reasons.  One is that Union Lake is a larger all sports lake and the second reason is that Union Lake is in West Bloomfield and Long Lake is in White Lake Township.   So if a smaller lake will do, then many times you will get more house for your money.  Also another factor in the price of lake homes is sometimes how far or remote the lake is.  The further you are away from metro Detroit the less expensive the home in SOME INSTANCES.  There are some lakes that are geographically less desirable than others and that figures in the cost of the lake home. It’s not simple to tell you whether a lake house is worth the price sometimes.  Sometimes it is all about the demand by buyers for the lake that drives the price up.  Search Southeastern Michigan lakefront homes by map.  Zoom in on the lake or area to find your dream lake home.  I hope you enjoy this page about waterfront properties on Taggett Lake lake in Highland Michigan.

I looked at a Taggert Lake canal front foreclosure in 9/2011.  It was a home that needed a lot of outside work and was about a $100 a square foot.  At the time I thought it was a nice lake home for the price.

Southeastern Michigan home buyer bonusUnlike many Oakland County MI Lakes there are some wider lots and spaces between the homes on Taggert Lake Highland Township Michigan.  I would guess the average lot size is 80 foot and larger.  

What are the top lakes in the area?  If you ask that to any lake home owner they are going to say their lake.  Like living in a city.   Everybody thinks theirs is the best.  It is the same way with lakes.  So what are the best lakes?

It depends on what you want to do.  You may want to slalom ski every morning.  Then a Michigan lake with a ski course is the best lake for you.  You may get bored on one lake so the Portage chain of Lakes or the Half Moon chain of lakes is better suited for you.

The top lake is the lake that best fits your needs.  Most lakes in the area now have weed control.  Most have the same water quality.  Some areas are ahead in getting sewers around them.  Most lakes now are fairly stable in the lake levels.  They are controlled by dams or many lakes have augmentation wells to keep the lake levels at a stable level.

So what is the best lake?  It depends on your needs.  I will usually be able to give you a list of big all sports lakes?  Or list of non motorized lakes?  Or lakes in West Bloomfield?  Or nice kayak lakes?  Or maybe you want lakes with an up-north feel.

The best lake for you may be totally different than for my next buyer.  So send me an email to  Let me know what you are looking for and I will help you find the best lake for you and your family.  You can also call me at (248)310-6239

Here is what a previous client had to say about me!


"Hi Russ,

I wanted to thank for helping me get my Milford condo.  I know I limited my chances of finding the "perfect condo" by wanting a certain small area.  But you came out here whenever we found one.  It took me a year of looking but finally we found one that was the "one".  It was a short sale which I knew nothing about.  You told me about all the problems that might happen with a "short sale" and some of them did.  You were good about re-assuring me about the length of time short sales take.  But we finally got the condo!   Thank you from Courtney and I."
