If you tried to sell your Lapeer County Lake house last year with no success, AND you were a fairly high priced listing, do not despair. It was not your house- it was the market.

In 2014 there were only 4 lakefront sales over $600,000 and all 4 were on acreage. 2 of those were on major acreage with private lakes- 40 acre and 90 acre parcels. And by private lake I mean their own private lake. The other 2 were a house and 9 acres on Lake Metamora and a house on 5 acres on Lake Lapeer.

Only 2 houses sold in the $400,000’s- both on Lake Lapeer.

This is better than 2013 when the price of lake houses in Lapeer County topped out at $477,500.

So far in 2015 there has been 1 sold on Lake Lapeer for just under $400,000 and 2 pending at just under $400,000 and in the mid $500,000’s.

The rise in prices is due to an improving economy, low interest rates and the lack of distressed properties (foreclosures and short sales). The distressed sales dropped to 11% of the total lake sales in 2014 from 19% in 2013. In 2010 distressed sales made up 49% of total lakefront sales in Lapeer County.

The past few weeks I have been showing houses in North Oakland and Southern Lapeer Counties, all on at least an acre and many with pole barns. My brain knows prices are way down, but for some reason I’m still amazed when I show houses.

These particular buyers found a house in Dryden Township in pole barn oakland county lapeer michiganSouthern Lapeer County– less than a mile off Rochester Rd. Over 2600 sq. ft. which doesn’t count the finished walk out basement. It’s a bank owned home in excellent condition on over 2 1/2 acres with a pole barn. The asking price is $206,900.

We looked at several houses in the Ortonville, Oxford, Metamora, Dryden areas and there was a handful of houses– all around $200,000 – that were quite nice. We lost out on a house that was a bit under 2000 sq. pole barn oakland county lapeer michiganft. on a couple acres in Dryden to another offer. Very nice, newer home with a pole barn. There was one house that could have used a bit of sprucing up (carpet, paint, update the baths) that was on 10 acres with a pole barn for around $220,000.

There was a lot of crap out there, too. But if you would like to live in the country with a bit of property, you are able to get a pretty nice home on a couple acres for a decent price. And with today’s low interest rates, and dropping property taxes, a $200,000 house isn’t nearly as  high of a house payment as it was just a few years ago.

Sometimes I come across a buyer who wants to live in Oxford or Lake Orion, but what they want in a home really isn’t in their budget. I usually follow up with a question along the lines of: “Is Lapeer too far of a drive?”

Often time the response is along the lines of “What is there to do in Lapeer?”

This post is one in a series covering the numerous amenities both the City and County of Lapeer have to offer.

Smack dab in the City of Lapeer (just outside of the “downtown” area) we proudly boast the City of Lapeer Community Center, a 50,000 square foot community center that offers a plethora of activities including both youth and senior activities.

The Lapeer Community Center features a state of the art swimming pool, indoor track, a gym for basketball and volleyball, a weight fitness area, two official size racquetball courts and several multi-purpose rooms.
