Lake Township.  It is just about evenly split down the middle.  So what kind of lake houses and lake cottages are there on the lake.  White Lake still does have many small cottages on the lake.  We owned a small one on Jackson Blvd.  There are small lake cottages that range from 900 square feet to about 1500 square feet.  Many of them are older homes that were built in the early 1930’s to the 1960’s.  Some of them will have sloping floors, 7 foot ceilings, and small bathrooms.  Remember they were built as cottages prior to building codes and inspections.  Some will have questionable foundations that are on blocks and yes I have send them supported buy a piece of a tree.  The way I look at it is, if the wood is solid and not rotted and it has lasted 80 years I myself would not worry about it.  Many homes are like that, however you have to be comfortable with the home inspection when you buy it.

One of the biggest issues with lake houses on White Lake in White Lake Township is the septic fields.  There is no sewers around the lake and will not be for years.  So having a good septic field is important when buying a lake house.  If the septic system fails it could wind up costing you a lot of money to put in an engineered field.  You could  end up paying $25,000 or $30,000 to put in an engineered field.  Many of the old septic fields sat between the home and the lake.  That is no longer allowed.  Now septic fields have to be on the other side of the house away from the lake.  The other issue is where is the well? And you neighbors well.  A well has to be about 65 feet away from the septic field.  So you may incur more costs to get a new well. These are very important issues when buying a lake house on White Lake in White Lake Township.

The last item you should be aware of is property lines.  On White Lake there are quite a few properties that have no real lake frontage.  Some have public promenades or public access in front of them.  They have never been used in the last 50 years so I do not believe it is an issue to buy a home with public access in front.  Most of the time they home owners have landscaped and taken over the property and used it as their own.  However I always recommend you spend the money to have your new home surveyed.
