I read a story that made me a sorry for everybody involved.  A 74 year old landlord got into an arguement with 3 kids of his renter.  The 74 year old  landlord was upset about parking, snow shoveling, and late rent.  He threatened to shoot the 3 teenagers.  The teenagers called the police and the police came.  The teenagers told the police they were not afraid of the landlord.   The police left.  The landlord came back, shot, and killed the 3 kids.  All over snow shoveling, late rent, and parking.  Sad, sad, sad.  The other story I have about landlord violence is one of my friends has apartments in Detroit.  A squatter broke into one of the apartments and moved in.  My friend called the Detroit police.  The police told my friend they couldn't do anything.  My friend would have to legall...

DETROIT, MICHIGAN 2020 -- LOTS OF CLEANING UP TO DOThere has been a lot of talk about creating a new city in the year 2020. People are talking about creating a new state by the year 2020. In fact, the old train station in Detroit is finally getting cleaned up and ready for business. I never thought I would live the day to see that one.... But in this era of "clean up" there is a lot of work that needs to be in done right here in our own backyard. I am talking about of course... the unsightly garbage house clean up -- and there are plenty of these types of properties around in every community. Some Metro Detroit neighborhoods happen to have more of them then others. When houses sit and are not taken care of all sorts of things can happen... squatters can move in, and so can rodents....Th...

Life passes us by so quickly.  It seems like only yesterday when you look back at times in your life.  Now I'm using "30 years ago" or back in the 70's....that was 40 years ago.  Last week I was at a real estate convention all week.  So I played catch up for the last 3 days.  I have worked 12 hours a day. Last night on the way home there was a beautiful sunset unfolding over the road in front of me.  It was a palette of colors splashed across the sky.  There even jet streaks that added to the color.  So I pulled over and took a few pictures.  I stopped to enjoy the display nature was putting on. It was a great ending to the day.  I changed the settings on the camera to pick up the wonderful colors I was seeing.  I even stopped again at Pontiac Lake to get the sunset over the lake.     I...

 Looking for a Waterford Lake that is more than a round circle?  Then you should think about Lake Oakland and Woodhull Lake.  They connect together via a large culvert under Sashabaw Rd.  They are both fairly decent size lakes. Lake Oakland is 237 acres and WoodHull Lake is a 135 acres.  So combined they are a little over 370 acres.  That is a fairly decent size body of water in Oakland County. Lake Oakland does have public access so the public can get to Woodhull too.   They are great public allsports lakes.  Below are two amateur videos of the lake.  One is kind of blurry but I am just trying to give potential lake buyers an idea of what to expect on the lake. There is such a limited amount of information on Oakland County lakes that when I am out showing houses I try to shoot a short...
