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.
