Union Lake is what I would consider more of a upper end lake. You are going to find homes that are taken care of, bigger, and newer. You won't find many of the old cottages on the lake. I would say the average home is going to be over 1800 square foot on the lake.
Colonial home sizes range from 1400 square foot to over 7200 square foot. There are contemporary homes that range from 2500 square feet to 7888 square feet. Even some of the ranches are big. I found one small ranch at 810 square feet but the biggest one was 4200 square feet!
Union Lake waterfront property sizes range from 45 feet to 3/4 of an acre. Union Lake homes and properties will be a little pricer than homes say on Cooley Lake or Long Lake right across the street.
Children living on the lake attend Walled Lake, Waterford or West Bloomfield Schools.
Union Lake home styles are:
Like most Oakland County MI Lakes you have to use google earth to map the porperties to see where they are and to find out what is next to them. I always recommend to do a drive by if you can.
The Matter of Taste restaurant is on the lake.

There is are some lake access homes near Union Lake.
My recommendation to you is to get a survey when you buy a lake home. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT THAT YOU DO SO. I have a cottage on White Lake and have seen a few battles between home owners over the lot lines. Twice I have seen where the owners were completely surprised that they did not own the land they were fighting over. If you have a staked survey you will not have any surprise.
If you are buying a waterfront property look up the property lines at the county or the community the home is in. I have seen lakefront homes sold that were not really Lake Front. They had a subdivision or community access in front of them. I have seen lot lines that angle. Where the owners thought they owned a perfect rectangle instead it was an rectangle at an angle.
So many home owners and lake home owners assume they know the lot lines. But many of them do not. It is important to get a staked survey so there are not property disputes with neighbors. On White Lake in White Lake Township there was a home sold years ago as a lakefront home. It became a law suit when the owners found out that the neighbors actually owned the lakefront in front of their home. They ended up letting the home go back to the bank.
I have seen several lake homes listed this year that were not actually Lake Front. They had a lake view but they did not actually own to the lake. It is up to you the buyer to do the research to make sure of that.

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