- Union Lake (mostly in West Bloomfield MI)
Union Lake is what I would consider more of a upper end lake. The home prices per square foot are going to be higher than prices on Long Lake in Commerce or Cooley Lake in White Lake. You are going to find homes that are taken care of, bigger, and newer. You won't find many of the old cottages on the lake. I would say the average home is going to be over 1800 square foot on the lake.
