The lake side City of the Village of Clarkston is a picturesque Metro Detroit suburb in the Independence Charter Township of Oakland County. This wonderful suburban retreat is one of the many cities and villages of the North Metro Detroit area that many would be and prospective investment property owners are looking to for their investment properties. With a vast array of town homes, apartment homes, condominiums and single family homes, there is truly something for everyone from beginners to savvy real estate investors alike. The trouble is that with the purchase of an investment or rental property, the owner is then left with the day to day management and maintenance of these properties. Not to mention the stresses that come with maintaining compliance with the laws and regulations that govern lease and rental properties can be quite overwhelming to put it mildly.

Clarkston, Michigan, may feel like it’s a bit out of the way but if you make this community your home, you’ll find that you have access to many of the great things that metro Detroit has to offer.  One of the biggest draws to Clarkston is the DTE Energy Music Theater.  This amphitheater boasts major musical performances during the summer as well as festivals and other events.  It’s a great spot to enjoy some music under the summer stars.  Located to the southeast is Auburn Hills which boasts the Great Lakes Crossing Outlet Mall.  This indoor mall features over 180 stores along with restaurants and a movie theater so whether you’re looking to take a shopping excursion or just want to catch a dinner and a movie with a loved one, this spot is great.

You’re also near the Palace of Auburn Hills which is the home of the Detroit Pistons.  The Palace is a great venue that features sporting events, concerts and shows all year long. 

When you live in Clarkston, you’ll have the charm of a small town with a main street district designated a National Historic Site where you can shop at boutique stores and where many festivals, fairs and parades are hosted throughout the year.
