Oakland County lake real estate happenings

The bargain homes and the move in ready homes sometimes sell in just a few days.  So Many homebuyers never even see them because they are not getting the newest home listings sent to them.  Get the best homes emailed to you as soon as they hit the market.  Join my

Well June for Oakland County Lake real estate has been a different market.  Oakland County lake home owners have definitely been listening to the local and national news about real estate prices rising.  Many lake sellers who are putting their homes on the market are pricing them at the higher end of the market and there are quite a few that are extremely over pricing them.  Some Oakland County lake real estate is selling but buyers are being picky.  What I am noticing that buyers are still looking for that under $250,000 lake home to spend the summers on.  I usually have several retirees looking for that summer home that they can use when they are not in Florida, Texas, or Arizona.
 
The homes that were $400,000 last year are sometimes being overpriced in the $600,000 to $900,000 range.  In some cases it is down right crazy.

The other trend I am noticing is that many Oakland County lake real estate buyers are looking for year round homes.  We have families looking to live on the lake year round.  I have several homes on Round Lake, and Mandon Lake in White Lake and Loon Lake in Waterford that have small homes on them.  But clients are turning down these cottages because they are too small.  Even the weekend buyers in June have been looking for larger lake homes.  That is just the trend I have been seeing lately.

Oakland County Lakefront foreclosures are very few and far between.  If  we see one or two a month on the bigger lakes that is a lot.   Join my VIP email home search and get the latest foreclosures and homes emailed to you so you don’t miss out on the best home deals.  There are many people out there looking for that special lake home but they are being choosey and buying the best deals.  If you are a seller you have to remember that lake real estate buyers are just not looking in your city.  If you have a lakefront home in Commerce the buyers that are looking at your home are also probably looking in West Bloomfield,  Walled Lake, and White Lake too.  So it is a varied market.

Bridge Lake Waterfront Properties and Buckhorn Lake in Lake Orion Township are smaller lakes in the Clarkson and Lake Orion area.  These are not huge lakes like Pontiac Lake in White Lake or Sylvan Lake in Waterford.   Just reasonable lakes.  Lakefront Homes for Sale on Carroll Lake in Commerce Township Michigan are connected to another small lake called Clark Lake.  Even with both of them they do not add up to a mid sized lake.  Yes they are all sports but you have to see it before you decide whether it is right for you or not.

Whether you are buying or selling give me a call I know the lakes area well.  My cell is (248) 310-6239
