Looking for home in Milford/Walled Lake/Novi area in 150-250K range within next 5 months. 3 garage would be a real plus. Any help?

Asked by Tom Manning, Milford, MI Tue May 29, 2012

My son will be starting a job in Milford in December, and will be in the market for a home in the general vicinity (within 45-min drive or so.) I will be making at least one, if not two trips to Michigan to assist him in his search and consumation of a home purchase. You should know that my son has a SEVERE case of juvenile-onset car sickness, and needs a MINIMUM of a 3-car garage, if not 4,5, or 6. (Or acreage ameanable to an add-on.) Credit worthiness is not a problem. Anybody got any good ideas? It's Michigan, for heaven's sake, there's gotta be properties with more emphasis on garage space than living space.....Would consider fixer-uppers to something nice, just need to find something that will accomodate his desire to house his 3 cars, boat, and at least one project car. (Like I said, car-sickness.) We are buyers, not lookie-loos - No particular desire to tour Michigan for the fun of it. This IS gonna happen, and any assistance you can provide will be greatly appreciated.
