So what can I tell you about Milford? First let me tell you that there is the Village of Milford which is the area around the downtown area and then the surround Milford Township. The downtown area is one of the biggest draws to the area. Downtown Milford is a historic downtown area that is full of boutique shops, bakeries, coffee shops, bars, and restaurants. It is not a huge downtown area. It is only about 3 or 4 blocks in length. Some of the homes in the area date back to the early 1800's. You will find some very beautiful Victorian homes around the downtown area. Many home buyers want to live in the downtown area so they can walk downtown.
No matter the time of year you will find the sidewalks downtown full of people. They have many events to draw other nearby residents to Milford. Milford Village is only about 2.5 square miles. It is not a large area in southwest Oakland County and is easily accessed from the I-96 freeway. M-59 is just north of the city, but most residents head to I-96 to get to metro Detroit. The village has a population of approximately 6,280 according to the 2010 census. There are an additional 15,271 people in the township. The Village of Milford boasts six parks within its boundaries. Central Park is a scenic park, located on the banks of the Huron River, is a favorite with the children and teens who enjoy the playscape, basketball courts, tennis court, volleyball court, and ice rink. Fairgrounds Park is adjacent to the Senior Center for easy access to a picnic area and shuffleboard courts. It is a great place to watch the ducks and geese too. Being not too far from the business district. Hubbell Pond Park is the site of the YMCA and Library, and a trail system that runs from Commerce Road all the way to Kensington Park on South Milford Road.

So what type of people will you find? Are you going to find gangs? Is your family going to be safe? The Milford area has all types of people. I would say that the Milford area residents range from middle class to upper middle class. You will find plumbers, doctors, factory workers, attorneys, teachers, business owners, and people from all occupations here in the community. Of course different subdivisions may be pricier. You will find some subdivisions with homes ranging from $500,000 to over a $1,000,000. Prices of homes in the Milford area range from about a $100,000 to over a million dollars. Many subdivisions will range from $250,000 to $550,000.
Good schools, low crime and homes with a little space. That is another reason so many Milford home buyers like the area. You will find larger lots, some ranging from 1 to 5 acres. The community is on the outskirts of metro Detroit but yet close enough. Just a little more semi-rural taste to it. Room between the houses, privacy, and a great downtown area.
Huron Valley School District has one elementary and one middle school located within the Village. The mission of the Milford Fire Department is to protect the lives and property of residents and they do a great job. The Milford Police react to any emergency that arises. The creation of the Lakes Area Citizens Police Academy 18 years ago affords citizens the opportunity to learn about their local police department and take a behind the scenes look at what law enforcement work is all about. Participants also gain an insider’s knowledge of the police agency, enabling them to make informed decisions on issues affecting the police and the community. The Lakes Area Citizens Police Academy is a joint venture between the Milford, Novi, Walled Lake, South Lyon, and Wolverine Lake Police Departments. The Oakland County sheriff and the Michigan State police are also in the area frequently doing routine patrols.
So if you work on the western or northern edges of metro Detroit the drive from Milford would not be too bad. If you have to go all the way to downtown Detroit it will be a drive especially when it comes to rainy or snowy days. Would I recommend living or moving to Milford? Most definitely.
One of my client's big concerns when relocating to Milford Michigan is will they have the conveniences that they are used to. How far are the grocery stores, the places of worship, the day cares, the hardware store, etc. Milford had grocery stores, bakeries, day care, and hardware stores. You can find just about anything you want within a 10 minute drive. No Milford does not have major box stores, or a major shopping area. That is what give the community the small town feel. But all around Milford to the Northeast, Northwest, south, Southeast, ans Southwest are major shopping areas with all the big box stores you could want. Within a 10 to 20 minute drive you can be in shoppers heaven. So do not worry about your new Milford home not having what you need nearby.
There are a few small lakes in Milford so you can find a few lakefront homes on them, but no big all sports lakes unless you go to Highland Township or White Lake Township. Milford is a community that has many beautiful subdivisions and homes in it. I would call it a community that home buyers want to live in. It is a "prestigious" city with an active lively downtown area. I would highly recommend you to look at homes in the area. It is another great community in Metro Detroit.
