If you are moving to Commerce Michigan what is it really like? Commerce has no centralized downtown area. No historic two or three block area with little stores. There are not a lot of stores right in Commerce except on it's eastern edge. There is lots of stores between M-5 and Haggerty Road which is the east edge of the community. You will find restaurants, gyms, large chain stores along Haggerty Rd. You will also find all the different grocery stores, banks and other every day needs in communities five to ten minutes away. To the south is Novi which has so many shopping areas it could keep you days walking in and out of stores. Milford and it's historic downtown area is just 5 minutes to the west. I am not saying there are not grocery stores in Commerce. One of the largest Kroger grocery stores is in Commerce at Union Lake Road and Commerce Rd. So if you are relocating to Commerce you have so much close at hand.
Commerce Township is start of the communities in the Lakes Area. There are about 14 named Lakes in Commerce Township. Because of the lakes the roads wind around the lakes. Some of the main thoroughfares in the northern part of the township are two lane roads that can get congested during rush hour. The "lakes area" which is heavily wooded as well. Its winding roads around the lakes provide pleasant views of the scenery, and residents enjoy year-round lake and river recreation. It is definitely lake country. M-5 is a semi highway. It is a road that comes off I-275 and I-96 that is a 55 mile an hour speed limit and only has traffic lights every mile. So the opening of M-5 a few years back made it easier to get to and from Commerce.

There are quite a few newer subdivisions with newer built colonial, cape cod, and contemporary homes that are over 2000 square foot in size. Of course there are small ranches and bungalows in the city too. I recently had a relocation client say that Commerce real estate was mixed. There are golf course communities and many other subdivisions with nice brick homes. But remember this was a lakes area too. So what that means is that around the lakes you will find streets of smaller bungalows and ranch homes. Some of these older homes have been built from the 1920's to the 1960's! There are some homes as small as 700 square feet. That is a stark difference from the large subdivision homes.
Of course on these streets you will also find newer built or homes that have been added onto. So those streets are going to be a mix of different home styles and sizes. Some of the streets may be even a dirt road. With so many lakes you will find small lake cottages up to million dollar lakefront homes.
