Three unincorporated communities make up the beautiful charter township of White Lake located in Oakland County, Michigan. Just under an hour northwest of Detroit, White Lake is home to over 30,000 residents. The town is made up of 37.2 square miles, a large portion of that land has been preserved as state recreation areas and county parks. With all of that natural beauty, White Lake is one of the most scenic regions of Michigan.
White Lake has dozens of major roads and highways making for easy travel across the state. M-59 intersects White Lake and the town has taken advantage of the popular road. Plenty of commercial developments have popped up along the highway so while locals can relax and enjoy the privacy of their forested and lakeside homes, they are not far from all of the main shopping and amenities of White Lake.
Plenty of rural residences can be found along the 22 tranquil lakes within the borders of White Lake. Those who are looking to reside in a quiet, rustic neighborhood don’t have to look far in this section of Michigan. The many acres of water provide the perfect opportunity for beautiful waterfront property and the mature forests offer sheltered, private residences. With all of these scenic opportunities, White Lake is one of the most popular rural townships and is a nature-lover’s dream come true.
Waterfront properties in White Lake are a hot ticket item. This particular type of real estate moves quickly on the market, so to be sure you secure your dream home, you need to keep an eye on the listings and act fast.
Though the waterfront homes are highly sought after, they are not unattainable. There’s a variety of affordable options when it comes to lakeside homes in White Lake. Quaint cabins and cottages, built mostly in the 1960s and 1970s, can be found in the low $200,000s. There are hundreds of simple, two-bedroom cottages located along the shores as well as tucked further back amongst the dense trees.
Houses built after the 1990s tend to be more than the modest cabins that were so popular a few decades before. Many colonial and contemporary homes featuring large master suites, open layouts, and big windows to capture the natural light and provide beautiful views of the nearby lakes are starting to dominate the real estate market. The more modern, custom homes and recently renovated homes typically list between $800,000 to over $1 million.
The option to customize and build your dream waterfront home is one to consider. However, White Lake has become a rather popular area and the amount of open lots are few and far between, though not yet extinct. Empty plots of land can be found anywhere from $26,000 to $159,000, depending on the proximity to the water, the size of the lot, and the quality of the land. Another option is purchasing an older home and either renovating or tearing the home down to start completely fresh. Either way, the possibility to design and create your dream, nature-infused home is quite acquirable.
Approximately 90 percent of real estate in White Lake is owner-occupied. Many of the waterfront homes are occupied by full-time residents, but plenty of homeowners live in the rural area only during the warm summer months.

Whether the residents are permanent or part-time, locals can agree that the friendly, small-town charm of White Lake is easily one of the top places to live in Michigan.
