Oakland County Michigan Real Estate Homes for Sale

Deer Lake, Clarkston Michigan, Lakefront Real Estate Sales


Deer Lake, Clarkston Michigan, Lakefront Real Estate Sales

Deer Lake is 137 acre all sports lake in Independence Township (Clarkston MI) just minutes from I-75 and downtown Clarkston. Deer Lake Beach is located at 350 White Lake Road and is open to residents of Independence Township from Memorial Day to Labor Day (weather permitting). A fee is charged for use of the beach and for the boat launching facilities. Swimming lessons are available throughout the summer. Park rules are posted at the entrance.

Lakefront housing on Deer Lake sells for a premium. "Back in the day" lakefront houses on Deer Lake would sell for over a million dollars easily. Even in 2010 when half the sales were distressed sales, the highest priced sale in Independence Township was on Deer Lake and closed for just under $1.7 million. One of the things that makes Deer Lake unique to the area is the availability of homes on acreage. Most lakes in North Oakland County are either areas of converted cottages OR developed to get the biggest bang for the developer's buck. The house that sold for a million seven in 2010 was on over 7 1/2 acres. Even the lower price homes tend to be on good sized lots- even an acre or two.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you are considering buying or selling a home on all sports Deer Lake.

Over the next several days I will be making significant changes to this blog. Many of the posts were written when the housing market was down and distressed sales were the norm (foreclosures and short sales). Tags and categories were assigned accordingly. We now appear to be back to a normal market, and I am […]

The 72 hour contingency clause is often referred to as a first right of refusal; that is close but not quite accurate. A first right of refusal is an agreement between a seller and potential buyer that if the seller accepts an offer on a piece of property the potential buyer has a certain time […]

Interest rates are low- super low. How low? Low enough you can pay today’s prices for a smaller payment than 2008 prices with 2008 interest rates. Last week’s rates for a 30 fixed with 20% down and a half point was 3.625%. With good credit of course. A few weeks ago you could get a […]

Clarkston MI and the surrounding areas offer a plethora of both indoor and outdoor activities- a quaint downtown shopping area, township and state parks, top of the line restaurants… and the topic of this post Pine Knob Ski and Snowboard Resort. Pine Knob is located on the southeast corner of Clarkston and Sashabaw Roads in […]

If you tried to sell your Lapeer County Lake house last year with no success, AND you were a fairly high priced listing, do not despair. It was not your house- it was the market. In 2014 there were only 4 lakefront sales over $600,000 and all 4 were on acreage. 2 of those were […]

When an Oakland or Lapeer County home buyer comes to us with a pre-approval letter for an FHA mortgage we will ask both you and your loan officer “Why FHA?” It’s not that we are FHA snobs or don’t want to work with FHA buyers, but FHA does come with its own baggage. Baggage that […]

If you email me and don’t get a reply within 24 hours (usually much sooner) the chances are I never received your email. Just because you sent it, doesn’t mean I received it. Technology is great, but is not perfect. Sometimes I get the feeling others (especially other Realtors) feel a bit put out when […]

On Nov. 11 I got my first deer. A pretty good sized 4 point. Nov. 22 I got my new car. A deer hunting tip- it’s cheaper to bow hunt than to use your car. If you are looking for hunting property, please don’t hesitate to call Jackie Hawley with ReMax Encore. Jackie Hawley, Realtor […]

Lake Orion MI Home Sales- Market Update Unit sales are down and average and median sales prices are up. Or are they? Lake Orion, MI is recovering from a housing crisis that lasted close to a decade. Statistics show that prices started dropping in 2006. I felt it in 2005. In 2009 the amount of […]

This is a common question I get when a person is considering selling their Oakland County MI home. First let me explain that most everything is negotiable; the purpose of this post is to address what is customary for the Oakland County and Lapeer County areas. Costs to the seller: commission (I normally charge 6%, […]

Customer Service…. What doe is mean to you? I have been selling real estate for a touch over 23 years and it still amazes me sometimes how little effort other “professionals” put into a transaction. A little background without names or exact location. One of my listings is supposed to close this Friday. The sale […]

Why it’s best to close on your Oakland County home as soon as the buyer gets loan approval There are many reasons to close immediately after the loan is approved and the buyer is clear to close. Even if that happens 3 or 4 weeks prior to the close by date. Seller can die Buyer can die […]

Do Oakland County MI Houses Sell in the Winter? I have been asked this question quite a bit lately. The short answer is yes. Not as many as in the summer- as you can see from the graph below, there’s a big drop in January. This is due mostly to the Christmas holidays. Thanksgiving and New Years […]

Why Zillow is a Good Thing They are well optimized so my listings get good exposure. And their Zestimates are SOOOOOOO wrong!! The first is a no brainer. Free exposure with a pretty decent format. My listings are attractively displayed with multiple photos and a good description. I can edit the photos and text, and […]

When High Tech is just an excuse for laziness This post is NOT a criticism of electronic signatures, Twitter, Facebook… nor of agents who utilize these methods in their real estate business. This post IS a criticism of agents who criticize those of us who choose NOT to use any of the above in our […]
