Lake properties Pontiac Lake White Lake Township Michigan

What would you like in a lake property on Pontiac Lake in White Lake Township?  If you are looking for a high end exclusive private lake with a large majority of the lake front homes being  over a million dollars then you have come to the wrong lake.  Pontiac Lake in Oakland County is a large public lake.  It has public access at several points on the lake.  One through the state park and then a small ramp for smaller fishing boats on another street.  So the lake can be busy on the weekends sometimes.

If you asked me what was the primary size of home I would say most of the homes range from 1000 square foot to about 2000 square feet.  Pontiac Lake is one Oakland County lake that has not be “redone”.  What I mean by that is that many of the original cottages and homes are still standing.  There has not been a big push to tear down the old lakefront homes to build bigger and better homes.

There is a marina, a motel, and trailer park on the lake.  At some point when lake front property prices really go up you will see all of these places gone and torn down to make way for some big new homes.  There is even a Chinese restaurant on the lake that I think is being under utilized because it could be a lakefront restaurant.  Right now I do not think they get much lake traffic.  Most of the lake front home prices in 2012 ranged in the $150,000 to under $400,000 price range.  Pontiac Lake is a place I believe will be good to buy a lakefront home with a good sized lot.  If you can find a decent lakefront cottage on a large lot I think in the future it will raise in price because the lot will be worth more than the house.  That will because a newer bigger home can be built on the lot.  Surrounding home prices will rise once Pontiac Lakefront homes start to be torn down and rebuilt.
