Home to an artsy, outdoorsy community, East Jordan is perhaps best known as the gateway to one of Northern Michigan's coolest wild places: the Jordan River Valley, an 18,000-acre paradise loaded with old-growth forest and the pristine Jordan River.  Because of the area's rich history, the homes for sale in the East Jordan real estate market are typically charming cottages and mature single-family homes, each with their unique perks and varying property sizes.  If you're looking for a home with a little more privacy, it doesn't get much better than right here. Properties here, especially those on large parcels, are hugged by lush patches of woodlands and greenery, which further enhances that feeling of exclusivity and seclusion.

Nestled in the space between Lake Charlevoix and Lake Michigan, the city of Charlevoix is home to nearly 2,500 residents. As such, this quiet community enjoys great access to recreation along the lakes and conveniences at the heart of the big city. When it comes to the Charlevoix, MI real estate market, buyers will find that there is a nice selection of single-family homes and condominiums available. Note: We are including five condominium communities in this list that are actually on Round Lake, technically not Lake Charlevoix, but they are connected so it made sense to do so to us.  Charlevoix condominiums for sale are some of the most sought after real estate options in Northern Michigan.
