One of the questions I ask lake home buyers is do you like the view of the water or do you want lake access.  The reason I ask this questions is about the affordability of buying a lake home.  You can buy a canal front home on some lakes for less money.  So if view is not an important factor you may get more for your money by buying a canal front home.  Canal front homes on Cass Lake in Waterford or Cedar Island Lake in White Lake are going to cost less than a lakefront home of similar size on the same lake.  So deciding what you want in a lake and a lake home is very important to think about before starting your search.  That is one of the pros of buying on a canal.   There are pros and cons on where you live on a lake.

For example do you want to see the sunset?  Being on the west shore of a lake gives you a great view of the sunset.  However with that view you will get all the stuff from the east side of the lake.  The west winds will blow seaweed, leaves, and miscellaneous articles to your shoreline.  These are just some of the different things that come up with buying a waterfront home for sale in Oakland County Michigan.  That is why it is important to hire a good experience lake realtor like myself to help you understand our local lakes.

Do you have a great picture of a rainbow or lightning over the lake and wouldn't mind sharing it?  I would love to show it off on the website.  You can send it to


Custom image 1Living on a lake is a whole different life style.  Over all the lake life style is a little different than subdivision.  Most lake home owners know their neighbors or other people on the lake from seeing them out on the lake.  I would say the lake life style is more social.  Though there are many lake home owners that keep to themselves.  So lake home owners may not even own a boat.  To me that is on a lake and not own a boat????

There are always people like that on a lake.  Some have gotten older and no longer want to maintain a boat, some are just happy looking at the lake and the birds, ducks, swans on the lake.  I have had many clients that do not have boats and are so happy on the lake.  They are just more relaxed because of the lake.

Many lakes in Southeastern Michigan will have a gathering spot.  What I mean by that is a place where boats and people tend to hang out together.  They may not know each other too well, but they may talk a little when anchored close by.  If it is a mucky lake they may anchor in a deep spot to swim.  If there are islands on the lake they may park on the shallow end of the island.  Some lakes has shallow areas or sunken islands that lake home owners anchor at.  Some stay to themselves with their family and kids.  Other lake home owners mingle and chat with the other people on the boats.

Tipsico Lake Location

Tipsico Lake is located in Rose and Holly Township in Oakland County Michigan.  The kids on the lake either go to Fenton or Holly School system depending on where they live on the lake.

Tipsico Lake is on the outer fringes of Metro Detroit.  It would be about an hour to hour and ten minutes from Detroit and about 45 minutes from Ann Arbor.  It is a rural area.  You are not going to get pizza delivery out there and you will have to drive a few minutes to get to a nice restaurant.  This is the country!  You will definitely have the "up north" feel without the drive.

The lake is South of Rose Center Dr, West of Hickory Ridge, East of Tipsico Lake Dr, and North of Clyde Rd.

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."
