Voorheis  Lake real estate Oakland County Michigan

Many buyers will just pass on a lake home if the beat up, run down house next door has tons of junk outside.  One of the frequent questions I hear over and over is....How much does the crummy house next door drag my house's value down or this lake home's value down?  It is very common on Metro Detroit lakes that a big beautiful home is right next door to a crummy or ugly house.  You can have a $500,000 lake home next to a fixer upper or a tear down home. 

It is not unusual.  So how much does the crummy house next door bring the value down?  Of course some lake home buyers will not buy the nice home next door to the crummy house.  So you may eliminate some lake home buyers because of that house.

However some lake buyers do not care about the rundown house next door.  They are just happy getting the home of their dreams.  During the time that they live there the home may be sold, or renovated.  You never know.  There is such a limited amount of lake homes out there.  Some buyers are constantly looking for the good bones house that they can remodel and make their own.  Sometimes if the lake lot is big enough the home may be added on to or completely torn down and re-built.  So it is up to you the buyer whether you can handle living next door to a crummy house.

Southeastern Michigan home buyer bonusThere are no bungalows on the lake.  But there are these home styles on the lake:

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."
