        Would you like a view of this from your lake home this summer? Fulfill your dream of living on the lake....April is the time to start looking!  First thing I recommend you to do is to sit down and right down your must haves, and then right down what you would like if possible.  That will help you and your lake real estate agent know what is important for you. 

For example Charlick Lake in Highland Township is just a small all sports lake.  >Charlick Lake is a fun and unique lake that features waterfront properties and is located in Highland Township, Michigan.  The lake is 50 acres, including an island right in the middle, and it has a maximum depth of 18 feet.  Charlick Lake does permit All sports boats and jet skis, but it is a private lake, so waterfront property homeowners won’t experience much disturbance.  Charlick Lake features the perfect balance for anyone seeking a waterfront home in Oakland County, Michigan.  So if you are an avid water skier you may not want to live on Charlick Lake because it is too small.

Finding your dream lake housein Oakland County Michigan may be a little harder than you think.  If this is your first time buying a waterfront home then it may surprise you on how many factors that you did not think about when contemplating a lake house.  It is harder to find that perfect house, but let me tell you the lake lifestyle is well worth it.  In fact I believe many times most lake home buyers only succeed at buying a lake home because they are willing to compromise on what they want.  The home buyers that "have to have" this or that, many times never buy a lake home.

Charlick Lake Highland

If the house and it's features are more important than achieving the dream of living on the lake then you may be one of those home buyers that never live on the lake.  Many times it is because the home buyers wants are not possible in that price range.  You have to remember a similar home in a subdivision could anywhere be from $100,000 to $500,000 more on a lake.  Lake property is in demand and you will not get the same house on the lake for the same price that you would off.  The key is being flexible and giving up on find the absolutely perfect house.  Find the "close to perfect" house so you can live on the lake. 


There is a limited inventory of lake homes and it can be confusing on which lakes are the best for your families needs and wants. That's why it is smart to hire one of metro Detroit's top lake specialists that knows the lakes and what the lake homes are worth. Plus we'll save you time by eliminating the lakes and homes that won't fit you.
