Market Monday - Vol.14
5 bedrooms, 3 bath gorgeous, unique, private home
Step inside a one-of-a-kind property. Captivating, situated just outside of the town of Oakland and beautiful Deep Creek Lake. This property offers endless possibilities and opportunities for home, investment, or even business. The 3+ acres that border public hunting state land. This property is an excellent choice for a primary residence, a commercial property, a retreat Center, a Hunters Paradise or Deep Creek Lake Buyers... A major remodel in 1996 added 900 square feet of living space, a wood stove, and an upper-level loft with a treetop view. The main living area has a 365-degree view of the woods which surround the property and includes hardwood oak floors, a 5 person hot tub, and large Anderson windows. The kitchen remodel in 2015 included new stainless steel appliances, butcher block counter tops, and vintage cherry vinyl flooring. In 2015 an exterior 20 X 20 building was renovated into a music studio with air conditioning, double walled soundproofing, with a wood shop area in the front. Outside you're going to love the apple and pear trees, hardwoods, a large yard with two decks and a covered front porch to sit and enjoy the hummingbirds.

Tip of the week
LONG-DISTANCE HOUSE HUNTING
Regular house-hunting isn't always easy, but adding distance into the mix can present challenges you don't have when looking a few neighborhoods over for a new home. While it may not be a walk in the park to buy a home from far away, it is possible. If you find a great agent and follow these steps, you can take away some of the stress that comes with moving long-distance.
1. Start Your Research
Knowing what is in your neighborhood is something we tend to take for granted. You know where the best sushi place is and exactly what grocery store is closest to your home for those last minute runs. When moving to a new neighborhood, especially in a new state, it is key to decide what is important to you when it comes to proximity. Does your new house need to be near a park for your kids? Do you need to be 5 minutes from the closest Starbucks? You'll also want to look into crime rates and school ratings if you have children. Researching your potential neighborhoods will help you feel better about choosing a new home that may be far away.
2. Use Technology To Your Advantage
Google Maps may not be constantly updated, but checking out an aerial view can give you an idea of what your neighborhood looks like if you don't have the opportunity to travel right away. Getting the lay of the land is just another way to feel comfortable about your new neighborhood.
3. Have a Travel Budget
Even if you have a great agent showing you as many homes as possible, you need to plan for the possibility of making more than one trip to your future home state if you want to see it in person. While you may have adjusted your budget already to purchase a home, consider factoring in travel costs so you aren't stressed about eating out or gas money during your trips - that way you can focus on finding your dream home.
4. Decide Your Non-Negotiables
Choosing a home from out of town already comes with challenges. If you're heading in to check out houses and have a weekend filled to the brink with potential home tours, it will make your life easier if all of those homes meet your requirements. Instead of seeing all homes that 'might' fit, have your agent remove any houses that have a non-negotiable feature - whether that is no backyard or not enough bathrooms. It will make the most of your time and remove some of the stress of seeing homes that aren't for you.
