Via Russ Ravary - Michigan Homes for sale - Michigan Real estate & Mortgage info (Remerica Hometown One): West Bloomfield Lake is a very small lake in the middle of a subdivision in West Bloomfield Township. It is located just North of Walnut Lake Rd and West of Orchard Lake.
I myself would call West Bloomfield Lake a big pond. It's only big enough for canoes and row boats. There is a small park on one side of the lake and the other 3 sides are surrounded by private homes. There are about 17 homes that sit on the lake.

Via Lise Howe, Assoc. Broker and Attorney Licensed in DC, MD, VA,Coldwell Banker (Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage Chevy Chase): If you are like many buyers who have been reading the real estate section of your local newspaper, you probably think a foreclosed house may be the best deal. According to the NAR, these houses often sell for about 15 to 20 percent less than comparable homes in the same neighborhood. Despite the seemingly great deals however, anyone considering buying a foreclosed house should heed the classic warning: Caveat emptor, or let the buyer beware. First, getting a contract on a house in a desirable (1 comments)
Via Adam Brett - Fullerton, California Realtor (RE/MAX NOC): Orange County building company Standard Pacific Homes has suffered 12-quarters of red ink, but economic forecasts are predicting that next year they may be profitable.

When the first period kids entered the room they discovered that there were no desks. 'Ms. Cothren, where're our desks?' She replied, 'You can't have (2 comments)
