If you are considering on moving to the Waterford Michigan area then you have come to the right place to learn a little more about the township and the real estate.  I myself would consider Waterford Township to be a starter community.   The majority of homes in the township are in the 1000 to 2000 square foot range.  Yes there are some larger homes but over all the homes are smaller.  You are not going to find huge mansions or large lake estates.  There is a gated community in the township and some beautiful homes in the 2500 to 5000 square foot range, but they are not in the majority. 

Beautiful Waterford homeWaterford came into existence way back in 1834 when Michigan was first being settled.  Of course with all the lakes and the Clinton River it was a natural place to settle to build a sawmill and a gristmill.  The early settlers depended on water to provide power.  Today Waterford calls itself a "lakeland paradise in the heart of Oakland County".  Waterford lies in the almost center of Oakland County with Telegraph being to the east of the township, M-59 running through the center of the community, and I-75 to the east.  Pontiac, White Lake, West Bloomfield, and Independence Township surround the township.  The M-59 corridor is the heart of the city.

Waterford has banks, dentists, doctors, and just about everything you are used to.  Telegraph, M-59, I-75 can get you anywhere in the metro Detroit area. You will find all the stores you want or need within less than a 20 minute ride of any home in Waterford.  There are all sorts of stores on m-59 in both Waterford, and White Lake s and along Telegraph Rd.  Then you have 3 major malls not too far away (Oakland, Somerset, and Great Lakes Crossing).  The township offices, police, and other community buildings are off Crescent Lake Rd near Hatchery.

Waterford Michigan is full of lakes!  There are 34 named lakes in Waterford.  Some are little tiny lakes, but Oakland County's largest lake Cass Lake (1280 acres) lies partly in Waterford.  Here is a map of many of Waterfords Lakes.

If you are looking for a less expensive place to live and do not want to be in Wayne County then Waterford Michigan is a good alternative.  The majority of homes are on city water and sewer.  The majority of roads are paved and with the easy access to I-75 and M-59 getting to Troy, Rochester, Birmingham, Southfield, or Auburn Hills is easy for work.  The property taxes are not outrageous.  It is a nice town to live in.

DTE Music Theatre, Clarkston are only a short ride away.  

Like most of metro Detroit's communities it is a safe community.  You are not going to find gangs running the neighborhoods, drive by shootings, or street muggings.  Yes like most of Metro Detroit Waterford does have random crime, but you have that in all cities.  I would recommend Waterford as an lower cost, starter home community or for buying a lake home.  If you have questions call, text, or email me at (248) 310-6239.  I live in White Lake down the street from Waterford so I know the area well.  I'm a full time realtor that has 18 years of experience helping my clients negotiate good prices on their homes.

If you are moving to Waterford give me a call or text at (248) 310-6239.   I will help make your next move easier.
