Waumegah Lake real estate Springfield Twp (Oakland County MI)

Wau-me-gah Lake front homes in Oakland County Michigan were built from about 1974 to the 2000's.  The home styles on the lake are similar to the home styles in subdivisions built about the same time.  If the lake wasn't there it would look like a regular subdivision.

  • School district for the lake               Clarkston
  • Streets around the lake are               Paved

Wahmegah homes Oakland County MI

Waumegah Lake properties usually have 75' to 150' of lake frontage.  There is a little elbow room.  There are a few lakefront properties that have over 1 acre.  There is even one property that has 10 acres.  So Waumegah Lake doesn't have the old lake cottages and the homes are not right on top of one another.

Between January & October 26, 2012 here's what sold on the lake.

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.  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 Waumegah lake in Springfield MI.  If see a home you like give me a call on my cell at 248.310.6239.

Lake homes are more expensive than a home off the lake.  It is just that simple.  Sometimes they are a $100,000 more.  Sometimes what you really want in a lake home is something you cannot financially afford.  Or you may not be able to afford the lake you want.  So what are your alternatives?  One of the best alternatives to living on the lake is a canal front home.

You can usually get a canal front home for anywhere from $50,000 to a $100,000 less than you could buy a lakefront home.  I have seen beautiful canal front homes that were so much cheaper than a full lakefront home. This gives you the ability to be on the lake, be able to have a boat on the lake but at a cheaper price.

That is one of the biggest issues is that some lake home buyer expectations are much higher than the price they have in mind.  Lake homes cost so much more than a regular home in a subdivision.  Some large all sports lakes have homes on them that command a $200,000 to $400,000 premium.  Many of the lake home in the $500,000 + range are custom built.  Some of these home sellers have torn down an old home and rebuilt from the ground up.

Sometimes home buyers have to give up the dream of that perfect home to get a home on a lake.  You may not have that luxurious home that you always wanted, but you may have a great lake home.  It is sometimes the choices you have to make.  Many times there is a limited amount of lake homes and choices.  So it is about being realistic.  So if you want to wake up to a view of the lake you may have to lower your expectations went buying a lake home.  If you are having trouble finding a lake home give me a call I can help (248) 310-6239
