Location & Realty
We’ll Find You the Perfect Place to Recharge, Relax & Reconnect
We are passionate about West Michigan and keenly aware of new home site opportunities. Sometimes a site looks perfect, but may have unique challenges. Other times, it’s difficult to see the full potential of an overlooked site. Cottage Home has decades of experience helping people find the ideal place for the home they’ve always envisioned.
Find Your Ideal Home or Site
Many clients have come to us knowing they want a lake house or cottage, but are unsure of the location. It can be difficult to sort through the options and be confident in the investment. That’s where we come in. We have a researched database of 2,250 lakefront properties in our area covering 90 miles of Lake Michigan shoreline, most of which our president and lead designer Brian Bosgraaf has personally walked, driven, flown over and even paddled.
We Clear the Path for Purchase & Make Selling Simple
Cottage Home has been a leading expert on building and selling lakeshore properties since 2008. We take pride in our homes and only list properties that we built and maintained. Nobody understands these homes, the lakeshore and these communities like we do.
Furthermore, our team actively participates in every aspect of the sale process, from handling the listing, to being on-site to ready the home for showings. This means our out-of-town clients can relax, we’ll take care of everything for you.
Why Choose Cottage Home Realty Services
We have a full team to ensure your house shines during showings. We arrive well-before potential buyers to turn on lights, unlock doors and prepare features such as fireplaces and pools. We ensure your home is presented at its very best.
We also have a home-expert on site during all showings to answer questions about desired modifications, obstacles, additions and improvements. After all, who better to ask than someone involved in the original build? All buyer questions are answered confidently by an agent who knows the home even better than you do.
