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 thoroughfares to provide all local conveniences. Listed in the Michigan National Features Inventory are the extant buildings of the old Henry Ford farm used for testing tractors. Independence Oaks County Park, DTE outdoor music theatre, the Pine Knob ski area and an extensive public recreation program provide recreational opportunities.

Clarkston has a downtown business district which has been designated a national Historical Site. The charm of the downtown conveys a nostalgia and picturesque setting that everyone enjoys. With numerous homes on the historical register, the City of the Village of Clarkston is a lively small town surrounded by a rapidly growing area.

In the 1990’s and early 2000’s the Clarkston area (Clarkston, Independence Township and Springfield Township) was just booming. New construction was going in, lake cottages were re-built into large year ’round homes. Prices soared. Then the economy tanked and like every place else, Clarkston was hit. We have had and still have our share of foreclosure and short sales. Prices tumbled.

The good newsPrices are on the rise as the amount of distressed sales have been declining.

More good news– All those beautiful subdivisions that were created during the good times are still there and between the low prices and the even lower interest rates, homes in those neighborhoods have become more affordable. Area amenities that always come with growth are still there. And the physical location is still great as far as access to expressways to go to Detroit, Flint, Auburn Hills, Troy, etc. The proximity to state and county land. City and township parks. Lakes for both fishing and playing with public access for both beach and boats. Shopping, eating, just about anything one can ask for in a home town.
