White Lake homes White Lake Township Michigan

White Lake is White Lake Township's largest lake.  It is relatively a large lake with one island.  Many of the local residents park near the island and mingle and talk.  If you have a Michigan relocation in your future and you want a waterfront real estate then White Lake in White Lake Twp is a place you may want to check out.  There are lots of nice White Lake waterfront properties to chose from.   There is a small restaurant right on the lake White Lake Inn.  A great place to catch a meal.  Sometimes they have music there too.

White Lake real estate and White Lake homes Oakland County

Homes on the east side of the lake sit above the lake.  (Ridge Rd) So there are stairs needed to get down to the lake on most of the homes on the lake's east side.  On the west and north side of the lake most of the homes are level with the lake.

White Lake properties White Lake Twp MI



Is the water calming to you?  Or the water remind you of past vacations?   If you are like me there is something magical about water!  I don’t know if it reminds me of great vacations, or good times with family from years gone by.  There is just something about water that I love.  Nothing like seeing the sun shine on the water.  If you have feelings like I do I would say you are a water person.

Your dream of living on a lake is very possible and attainable.  I have helped hundreds of buyers move onto lakes.   Oakland County Michigan lakes still have many affordable homes that have reasonable drives into Metro Detroit. You may be able to get to work in less than a half hours from some of our local lakes.  Your piece of lake real estate is waiting for you. Yes, lake homes are more expensive than a normal house.  How much is it worth to you to watch the moon over the lake on a warm summer evening.  The lake lifestyle is worth it.  It is an amazing lifestyle.  Would you like to come home at the end of a crazy, hard day to get on the pontoon and have a relaxing ride with your partner with a cold drink in your hand?  That is so possible.  Read about our local Southeastern Michigan lakes.   Here is some great info on waterfront homes on lake properties on White lake in White Lake Michigan.  Search Oakland County Michigan lake homes by map.  Zoom in on the lake or area to find your next lake home.

White Lake front home sizes and styles vary greatly.  There are small 900 square foot ranches and bungalows scattered around the lake.  The largest home is about 10,000 square feet and has a six car garage.  It was once owned by Derrick Coleman the basketball player.


So you can almost get any type of White Lake waterfront property that you want.  There are small and large colonials, a log home, some A-frame houses, large ranches, tri-levels, and contemporary homes.

On the west side of the lake along Duck Lake Rd there are some lakefront properties that are deep and wide.  So you can find some homes with elbow room on the lake.  On Jackson Rd most of the lake homes are close to both the lake and the road.  The lots seem to be smaller and tighter along Jackson Blvd.

Usually there are a few White Lake waterfront homes for sale.  They are a mixture of colonials, ranches, cape cods, bungalows, and even tri-levels.  The price range of White Lake waterfront properties range from just under a $100,000 to over a $800,000 depending on the size and location of the home on White lake. Like most of Southeastern Michigan lakes there are small lake cottages built from the 1920s to 1960s now updated and converted to year round use.  And there are new built colonials and lakefront homes with all the latest amenities. Children living on the lake attend either Huron Valley Schools or Waterford Schools.

The economy has even hit White Lake residents too.  You will notice a few lake homes that become White Lake foreclosures.

It does not matter whether you live on a lake or in the city you will have some good and some bad neighbors.  Most lake home owners get along so well.  Where the problem usually arises is about lot lines.  So one of the biggest recommendations is to get a staked survey of your property.  It is worthwhile and will help keep property line disputes down.  I have heard too many stories of home owners using and thinking they owned to a certain point of land when they never actually owned it.

 Lake courtesy is simple things like not blocking your neighbors view.  You do not want to put trees or shrubs in to block your neighbors view.  It is the same thing with a privacy fence to the lake.    You are going to start a war and alienate your neighbor. 

 It is simple things to do when trying to keep the neighbor peace.  When you have a party alert your neighbor, you may want to even invite them.  Remember parking is usually at a premium on the lake.  So be courteous and do not let your guest block one of your neighbors.  As I always say be nice.  Try to do a little for them.  Most lake homes are close.  Closer than homes in many communities so stereos and noise can be a nuisance.  Be aware of that when you are listening to your favorite tunes.

 Being a good neighbor on the lake will make lake living so much better.

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."
