Oakland County Michigan
Oakland County Michigan is and excellent place to live and work. During the "boom" times of the 1990's through the early 2000's, Oakland County was one of the 3 wealthiest counties in the country. While the money was flowing growth happened not only in the housing market but with other amenities that come with a good economy. New subdivisions developed, city water and sewer expanded into once rural areas, township and county parks were developed, sidewalks/black top trails sprung up. Lake houses fixed up, enlarged, or even knocked down and replaced. Village houses spruced up. Schools grew or built new buildings and offer more than in the recent past.
