Waterford Lake Homes

One of the biggest issues for lake home buyers is knowing which lake fits you and your family best.  That is why it is so important to work with a knowledgeable lake realtor.  Sure all real estate agents can show you a lake house.  But most of them can't tell you which other lakes might fit them better.  Most local real estate agents can't tell you what to watch out for on different lakes.  Having indepth knowledge is important.  I have spent thousands and thousands of hours putting together these video and websites so you can have solid information about our local lakes and lakefront homes.

Are you  looking for a lakefront home in Waterford here are some videos on some of Waterford Lakes so you can learn whether any of these lakes fit your family needs.  My goal as your local SE Michigan lakefront realtor is to be able to give you all the info on Waterford Lakes or any other lake so you can make smart decisions.  I do not want you to buy a lake home and then find out the lake is not right for you and your family.

Crescent Lake Homes

Let’s go boating

Crescent Lake is a smaller public all sports lake.  It’s big enough to tube and water ski on but it’s not a huge lake by any means.  If you are looking for a huge lake with big lakefront homes then this won’t be a Waterford Lake for you.  Most of the homes of the lake are what I would call average homes.  Most of the homes on the lake are going to be less than 2500 square feet in size.

Otter Lake Homes

A beautiful fall day on Otter Lake in Oakland County MI

What is great about Otter Lake is that you get two lakes for the price of one when you buy a home on Otter Lake.  Otter Lake is a public all sports lake that connects to Sylvan Lake in Waterford.  There is no DNR public boat launch on Otter Lake but there is one on Sylvan Lake. Because you can get from one lake to the other Otter Lake is basically a public lake.  There is a “marina” on Sylvan Lake and Sylvan Lake has multiple canals.  So the boating traffic on the weekends can be busy.

If you are looking to sell a home whether it is on the lake or not you will be glad to know that I have some of the lowest commission rates for people who are looking to list and sell their home.  Give me at call or text at 248-310-6239 to learn how much money you will keep in your pocket.

  • All sports lake                      Yes

  • Size                                       81 acres, 540 acres when combined with Sylvan Lake
  • Maximum Depth                  50 feet

Elizabeth Lake homes

When buying a lake home on Elizabeth Lake your family will like that most of the lake front homes have sandy lake bottoms in front of them.  Plus I think you will like that the lake is relatively shallow a little ways out from the shore.  Elizabeth Lake is a round lake.  It is a private lake or I should say that it is a semi private lake.  There is a marina on the southeast side of the lake that allows non residents to put a boat on the lake.  That’s why I say Elizabeth Lake is a semi private lake.

Let’s go kayaking!

On the south side of the lake you will find that the houses are closer together and the lots are smaller.  On the north side of the lake you will find larger lakefront lots.  So whatever you are looking for in a home you will find it on Elizabeth Lake in Waterford.

  • Private                                  Yes
  • Size                                      363 acres

Pleasant Lake Homes

There ar several Pleasant Lakes in the Metro Detroit Area.  Pleasant Lake in Waterford is a round lake that lies just south of Elizabeth Lake Road.  Again like Crescent Lake above Pleasant Lake is a smaller all sports lake.  It’s a nice lake for whatever you want to do and being a private lake keeps the boating traffic down.  You can waterski, tube, jet ski, or wakeboard.  When I pass the lake it is always quiet.  I believe that the boating traffic is not too bad even on weekends and holidays.

What a great day to take a fast ride on the lake.

There is a large subdivision park on the north end of the lake off Elizabeth Lake Road for the subdivision residents.

LAKE GENEVA HOMES

Lake Geneva in Waterford is a small, small private all sports lake.  This lake really should not be considered an all sports lake.  You can’t put a ski boat on the lake and have fun tubing or water skiing.  The lake is way too small to do anything like that.  Sure you can put a jet ski on the lake but again you will get tired of the lake quick because you are just going to be going in small circles.  This lake is more for swimming and human power boats.  Kayaking, fishing, and paddle boarding is more the type of activities that you will enjoy on the lake.  You will enjoy watching the ducks, wildlife, and swans on the lake.

So there is no public DNR launch on the lake.  The lake is not big enough to watch sunsets.  It’s just a nice little lake to enjoy the peacefulness of water on.

  • All sports lake                     Yes
  • Private                                 Yes
  • Size                                      19 acres
