Lake Oakland Lakefront Real Estate- Rising Prices- Low Inventory

So far there have been 4 closed sales this year on Lake Oakland in Clarkston and Waterford MI with prices ranging from $245,000-$751,871 with an average sales price of $414,218.

Last year the average sales price on Lake Oakland was $223,320 and in 2010 the average sales price was $194,677.

3 of the 4 sales this year were “normal” sales with only one bank owned home compared to last year when half the sales on lake Oakland were distressed sales and 64% of the sales in 2010 were distressed sales.

Houses are selling quickly and close to asking price. I had a buyer client get into a bidding war a couple weeks ago and our over asking price offer with a very strong buyer lost out.

There are currently 8 sales pending and 8 active listings on Lake Oakland.

What Does BATVI Mean? Clarkston MI Real Estate

Simply- Buyer Agent To Verify Information.

This is also known as an ass covering, or in my opinion, a waste of precious space in the limited space allotted in the MLS.

If you are buying a Clarkston MI short sale listing, beware of listings where the listing agent fills out the listing in a shoddy manner, such as wasting space in the comments, not filling out the remarks section at all, inaccurate listing information, etc. Remember, the listing agent is the person we are relying on to complete the short sale to the banks’ and seller’s approval. If he can’t fill out the listing, how successful will his short sale negotiations be?

If you are selling a Clarkston MI home, check your MLS sheet to make sure it is complete and accurate and all 25 photos included. The MLS is in place to sell your listing to the buyers’ agents. If I am going to show 5 houses to someone and 10 show up in the MLS search, I will not show the listings that are incomplete or indicate laziness on the part of the listing agent.

Often times BATVI gets replaced by CHP or EXP (price change or expired listing).
