Independence Township or Independence Charter Township just north of Detroit is one of the many cities, villages and townships that call the Oakland County area home. This diversely populated township is yet another of the many desirable Oakland County townships with excellent investment opportunities for the veteran and novice property investors alike. This convenient location and the rising area home values are the driving force behind many who choose to invest in Independence Township real estate. While many have realized how lucrative rental and lease property ownership can be, few recognize the headaches and issues that go hand in hand with investment property ownership. From day to day maintenance and upkeep to the subtle intricacies of maintaining compliance with the local laws and regulations this can be quite a time consuming burden for many.

Located north of Waterford and nestled along I-75 is the large area of Independence Township.  Taking up a little over 36 square miles with a population hovering near 35,000, Independence Township offers the freedom to stretch while still being close enough to enjoy the luxuries of the metro Detroit area.  If you take I-75 southward, you can catch a baseball game or a concert downtown in about forty minutes.  Being this far out of the city makes for a scenic atmosphere with access to many parks nearby like the Pontiac Lake Recreation Area and Indian Springs Metropark in White Lake and Independence Oaks County Park in Independence Township.  If you’re looking for a fun wintertime activity, you’ll be close to Pine Knob Ski Resort where you can utilize one of the six chairlifts or four tow ropes to shush down the seventeen slopes or play through the three terrain parks.

Enjoy living in the spacious and picturesque Independence Township.  With Waterford to the south and I-75 to get you toward Auburn Hills and Rochester, you’ll always have plenty to see and do without having to travel very far.   If you love being outdoors and want to avoid being near the crowded suburban areas then you’ll want to check out Independence Township.
