Pontiac Lake- Lakefront Real Estate Sales


Pontiac Lake, White Lake and Waterford MI 

Pontiac Lake is a 585 acre all sports lake located in White Lake Township and Waterford Township Michigan. Pontiac Lake is part of the Huron River chain that eventually dumps into Lake Erie. For the fisherman Pontiac Lake was stocked in the 80's and 90's through 2002 with  black crappie, bluegill, channel catfish, largemouth bass, northern pike, walleye and yellow perch.

For the boater/jet skier Pontiac Lake is one of the larger all sports lakes in Oakland County MI and host to Quake on the Lake, a inboard hydroplane race that has been held annually on Pontiac Lake.

Pontiac Lake Property Owners Association

Pontiac Lake is surrounded on 3 sides by Pontiac Lake Recreation Area- over 3700 acres of state land which offers horseback riding, hunting, snowmobiling, shooting/archery range, boat access and beach on Pontiac Lake and much more. Even though the Pontiac Lake area offers almost everything the outdoors person could want, it is still only minutes from M-59, shopping, airport, restaurants and much more.

Real estate sales on Pontiac Lake have gone through rough times just like the rest of Michigan. In 2004 sales of lakefront homes on Pontiac ranged from $179,900-$288,000 (as reported Realcomp II MLS). In 2010 sales ranged from $57,00-$230,000 with only 2 sales over $200,000.

Buying a home on all sports Pontiac Lake isn't just an investment decision; it's a lifestyle decision.

If you are interested in buying or selling a home on all sports Pontiac Lake, please don't hesitate to contact me.

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 […]

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%, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Paperless is NOT green I’m getting pretty tired of listening to agents boast about being paperless thus calling themselves “green.” First of all- something is substituted for paper. Usually a device that is electronic – more than likely built from petroleum products and run (charged) with coal. I have no problem with plastic and electronics- […]

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). […]
