First time Lake buyer ? Oakland County MI lake real estate tips

If you are a first time Oakland County lake buyer you may want a  lake house but don’t know where to start.  Of course like all home buying first you need to see your bank, or a lender to see what you can get pre-qualified for.  Lending guidelines and rules have changed so much in the last few years so it is very important to make sure you can buy a lakefront home.  No listing agent will take an offer without a pre-approval letter.  With the way lake homes are going in the summer of 2012 you want to be prepared and have your pre-approvaly in hand.

Once you have the pre-approval now it is time to think about what YOU WANT.  What are your desires and needs?  Do you want an all-sports lake?  What are you planning to do on the lake?  Are you just going to fish?  Or do you want a speed boat to pull people around on skis or tubes.  Are you happy with just a pontoon boat?  Decide what you want to do and how you are going to use the lake will be the next step in planning your Oakland County lake home purchase.  That will determine what type of lakes we need to be looking at.  Do we need to be looking only at all-sports lakes or do we need a quiet lake.

It depends on you.  Me I love kneeboarding and pulling kids around on tubes.  So I need an all-sports lake.  But I have a borther-in-law that bought a lake house  and has no boat at all.  They just like the serenity of the lake.  Everybody has their own wants and desires.  Some buyers like kayaking, some like fishing, and some just love the wild life on the lake.  But we all are drawn to the water and love the water.  That is what lake living is all about.  So if you are a first time Oakland County Lake home buyer get your pre-approval letter from the lender  and think about what you want to do on the lake.

Then I can narrow your search down for you and give you a list of lakes that will fit your criteria.

Happy Lake home Hunting!
