The Village of Franklin in Southfield Township is one of Oakland Counties many gems. This Metro Detroit suburb is quaintly nestled between nearby Bingham Farms and Farmington Hills just northwest of Detroit. As with many Oakland County cities, townships and villages there is a diverse real estate market here in Franklin. From condos, apartment homes and single family dwellings there is a property just right for those looking to invest in long term real estate projects such as rental properties. While property ownership may be very lucrative, for many of us, the headaches and strains of managing the day to day intricacies of your properties may be more than a bit overwhelming. From maintaining adherence to the laws and regulations surrounding lease and rental properties, to the maintenance and general upkeep of your investment, it can be incredibly painstaking at times to say the least.

Franklin, Michigan, is a small, historic community with lots of charm and ideal for those looking for a luxurious area within the metro Detroit suburbs.  Situated just west of Telegraph Road between Bingham Farms to the east and Farmington Hills to the west, this little community features one of the main staples in the whole area: the Franklin Cider Mill.  This cool cider mill offers fresh cider and donuts as well as agricultural products, cheeses and meats.  The creek that runs between the facility and the parking lot is a fun spot to hang out, enjoy a cup of cider and feed the ducks as they wade in the water. 

For the students living in Franklin, they will attend the Birmingham School District which is an excellent school system that sends many of its graduating students to elite colleges and universities all across the country.

When you live in Franklin, you’ll be close to many of the great features of the metro Detroit area.  Right off of Telegraph is a whole host of businesses, restaurants and stores.  You’ll also be close to major freeways to get you into downtown Detroit quickly and easily.  Franklin is an ideal location when you want to be surrounded by trees and forests but be within a mile of the more bustling part of the city.
