The majority of Lotus Lake is located in Waterford Township, but the northern tip falls into Independence Township (more commonly known as Clarkston). There is a public access site at Williams Lake Rd just east of Maceday Lake Rd.

Maceday and Lotus Lakes are all sports lakes- great for the water skier or jet skier in the summer and snowmobiler in the winter.

Southeast Michigan Home Buyer Information

An early attempt at video. I’m getting better but have a long way to go.

Clarkston MI boasts an excellent location with I-75 intersecting the township twice – M-15 and again at Sashabaw. It is the fourth largest township in Oakland County with a population of approximately 32,000 residents. Independence Township can be characterized as a growing residential community. Shopping centers and professional services have sprung up along the main […]

Is My Listing REALLY Overpriced? It seems lately the explanation that comes with a low ball offer is that the house (my listing) is overpriced. I guess soooo grossly overpriced that your buyer chose it as their favorite. I understand a buyer submitting a low offer trying to see what they can get it for. […]

Oxford MI Home Sales- Trend or Anomaly? Trend! You can see from the charts below, the average sales price every month in 2013 beat the same month from the previous year. When you compare 2012 to 2011 you can see the lines criss crossing, but 2012 prices were higher than 2011 more times than not. […]

Oxford MI home sales - units, prices and total sales volume were up significantly (2013 over 2012). Unit sales in 2013 were up 16% from 2012. The average sales price was up 21% from 2012 and up 26% from 2011. Volume sales were up almost 22 million from 2012 and distressed sales were down significantly. […]

Southeast Michigan Real Estate- For Sellers

Should I stay around for the showing? Many home sellers in Oakland and Lapeer County Michigan ask this question. You should leave and I should not be there either. For the showing you want potential buyers to be as comfortable as possible. You want them to feel free to express any concerns or dislikes to […]

Home prices in North Oakland and Lapeer counties have been increasing- sharply. What you can buy for $200,000 today will probably get $210,000 or even $220,000 this summer..... If a house is slightly overpriced today won't be this summer. Not every seller has the same motivations. Some want to sell quickly. Some want to sell for top dollar and we are now in a market where patience can be profitable.

Seller Concessions Explained- Southeast Michigan Real Estate This is my attempt at a very simplified explanation of what seller concessions are. Example: You want to buy the house you just looked at and want to make an offer of $200,000. You need $5000 in seller concessions (seller paying all or part of your closing costs). […]

Home staging your Oakland County or Lapeer County MI home for sale. At one time it was just part of a Realtor’s job to “stage” a home they were listing- at least in the North Oakland and Lapeer areas that I work in. In those days staging had a bit of a different meaning. I […]

Now your Southeast Michgan house is on the market- beautifully described in the MLS with 25 photos and a virtual tour, sign in the yard with color flyers in the box (again- beautifully described), full color ads all over the internet. Everything is going along just like your Realtor told you it would. And now the […]
