Woodpecker Lake West Bloomfield

Do you love the peaceful feeling you get from looking at a lake?  Do you love watching wildlife.  Woodpecker Lake is a small pond like lake that is good for kayaking, paddle boarding, and swimming.  It is too small of a lake for anything else.  I recently sold a home on the lake and the seller shared with me all the photos of the wildlife that comes to the lake.  I have never seen so many different types of animals.  When I was there one day I saw three or four deer playing in the lake.

Is a lake that has a variety of brick homes, spacious lots, mature trees what you want in a lake home. What is great about Woodpecker Lake is that it is close to West Bloomfield Trail.  West Bloomfield Trail runs along the north side of the lake.  If you don’t know The West Bloomfield Trail is a 54 acre linear park that meanders for nearly 7 miles through West Bloomfield, Orchard Lake, Keego Harbor and Sylvan Lake. The trail extends from Sylvan Manor Park in the east to Haggerty Road in the west.   The trail is getting longer because they just finished a bridge of M-5 that will extent the trail.  So if you are a biker, or hiker you will like the proximity of Woodpecker Lake to the West Bloomfield Trail.

Motor boats are prohibited on the lake.  Woodpecker Lake  is a small narrow lake that is really only good for paddling around on.  It’s not large enough to satisfy anybody that wants a boat and to be able to take a 20 minute cruise around the lake.  This lake would take about 5 minutes to go around.  Woodpecker Lake satisfies the lake home buyer that loves wildlife, want the view of the lake and doesn’t care much about being on the lake for hours at a time.

This home is not for sale. Just an example of the Beautiful brick houses on the lake

Lake home selling tips If you are selling a waterfront home on Woodpecker Lake here is a quick home selling tip.

Painting is one of the biggest bangs for your buck.  I cannot stress this enough.  If you have dings and black marks on the walls or scuffed up trim work home buyers are going to notice.  This is going to cost you in terms of offer price. IT’S A FACT Today’s home buyers want the house move in ready.  The majority of lake home buyers are the same way.  They will pass up a West Bloomfield house that needs work and buy the house that is more updated and move in ready.  I have seen W Bloomfield houses sit for months and months because the sellers did not want to invest the time or money to paint the house.  Then I have seen them sell in under two weeks once they were painted.  Not painting your lake home could cost you $10,000 or more in the sale price.

You will definitely get the money you invest in painting back and them some.  My goal is to help you get the most for your home.   If you are thinking of listing give me a call at (248) 310-6239
