2 Good All sports lakes Waterford Michigan - Watkins & Williams Lakes

Real Estate Agent with Real Estate One 6501304423


Would you like to have a waterfront home on an all sports lake in Waterford Michigan?  It is hard to know which is the best lake in Waterford or anywhere in Oakland County.  Ever lake is a little different.  We have mucky lakes, and we have lakes that are all sandy bottom.  So have big luxury lakefront estates on them and other lakes in Oakland County have small waterfront cottages on them.  Our goal as your lake realtor is to help you find a lake and a home that both fit you and your families needs.  At the bottom of this page I have two short videos on a couple of nice lakes in Waterford.    The videos are about the lakes and Lakefront Homes on Watkins Lake in Waterford and the second one about Williams Lake waterfront properties in Waterford.
I always ask my lake buyers what they are going to do on the lake and who in the family will be using the lake.  As some of my clients have never been a lakefront home owner I show them factors about the lake they may not even considered.  So here is some information on Watkins Lake in Oakland County.  It is a private all sports lake that is about 238 acres in size.  Lake house buyers in Oakland County sometime prefer private all sports lakes because they feel there is less boat traffic and they don't have to deal with people that don't live on the lake.   Some home buyers feel that a person that lives on the lake will take care of the lake better and be more respectful of the lake and the residents.  Watkins Lake has a deep spot on the lake that is 38 foot in depth.  All the homes are on city water and sewer.  So you don't have to worry about septic tanks or wells here.  Most of the roads on the lake are paved.  The homes on the lake are a mixed bag with some being smaller cottages to newer homes over 3000 square feet.    You are not going to find mega mansions on the lake that are over 5000 square feet.  It is a relatively quiet lake because of the lake being private.  They have a weed harvester that controls the lake weeds.
The second lake we are going to talk about is Williams Lake in Waterford.  It too is a private all sports lakes Waterford Michigan.   The lake is about 155 acres in size with the deepest spot being about 45 feet deep.  The lakefront homes on the lake are on city water and sewer.  Most of the roads around the lake are paved.  Yes you will still find small 800 square foot cottages on the lake, but you will also find homes that have been built in the last 10 years.  These newer colonials, and ranches have the latest technology and amenities in them.  Many of them have brick or stone exteriors with walkout basements.  These newer homes range in size from 2500 to over 4000 square feet.  There is even a 5400 square foot home on the lake.  What I have been told about the lake is that there is a strong association that puts on many events for the lake residents.  They have the fireworks, sailboat races, and more!  I would recommend this lake too to any buyer looking in Oakland County.
If you want to get more information on these lakes, or lakes similar to or near them, give Russ Ravary a call and he will get all your questions answered. Russ Ravary is one of  Oakland County's lake area real estate agents that really know the local lakes.  So you know you'll be working with the right realtor for the job!  So buyers hire a non lake realtor and then get frustrated because the agent knows less about the lake than they do.  The agent doesn't know about the lake or where to get the information they need.  Too many times I have client that have wasted time with another realtor only to find their dream lake house in a short time with me.
