Lake Orion Lakefront Real Estate Sales


Lake Orion Michigan Lakefront Real Estate Sales.

lake orion lakefront homes for sale lake orion michigan lakefront real estateLake Orion is a 470 acre all sports lake that is in both the Village of Lake Orion and the Township of Orion Michigan. Lake Orion is a public lake with a public access off Indianwood Rd, just west of M-24.

The housing on Lake Orion is a mixture of cottages, cottages that have been re-built into larger, year 'round houses, and newer homes.

Lake Orion has a pretty interesting history with its start beginning in 1829, when a sawmill was built across the beginning of Paint Creek, which eventually transformed six small lakes into what we know today as Lake Orion.

lake orion michigan lakefront homes lake orion michigan lakefront real estateIn 1872 the railroad came to Lake Orion, making it easier for people to enjoy the beauty of Lake Orion. In 1874 a group of investors purchased what is now present day Park Island, and during the 1870's a dance hall was constructed on Park Island as well as a 100 foot long reception hall that was topped with an eighty foot high observation tower. At that time there were 4 daily train trips through Lake Orion bringing thousands of people.

The 1880's saw a second rail system moving north from Pontiac to Port Austin through Lake Orion.

The 1890's saw the purchase of Spencer's Island (present day Bellevue Island), thelake orion michigan lakefront homes lake orion michigan lakefront real estate construction of the Bellevue Hotel, and an auditorium that seated 2250 people.

The first Marine Postal Center was established in 1905, delivering mail to over three hundred cottages on the lake and islands. In 1911 Park Island changed ownership and was revamped as a light amusement center with a dance hall and some rides including a roller coaster.

The 40's saw the real beginning of the area building more permanent residences. When the U.S. entered World War II many factories in Pontiac became munitions plant employing many Orion residents. St. Joseph Catholic Church was completed in 1940. Bald Mountain State Recreation Area began operation in 1947. Anderson Chevrolet-Buick-Pontiac dealership opened in 1948.

In the late 1980's or 1990 there was a Bassmaster Tournament on Lake Orion. 2010 saw the first annual Dragon Boat Race. It's rumored that the Purple Gang had a cottage back during their heyday during prohibition.

51 Sheron is showing as sold twice in the same year with different square footage- I'm just reporting what shows in the MLS and can't verify the accuracy of the reporting. There could have been a mistake on one of the listings for 51 Sheron or there could have been an addition.

NON Distressed Seller – Southeast Michigan Real Estate- For Sellers

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%, […]

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 […]

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 […]

buying NON distressed homes – Southeast Michigan Home Buyer Information

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 […]

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 […]

Turning your home into that “dream house” Most Oakland County home buyers come to us with expectations for a home that exceed their budgets. Most people aren’t buying their “forever home” (too much time on pet finder with dogs looking for their forever homes). Many settle for something they like, build some equity and sell […]
