Market Monday - Vol.17
A Must See!!
1138 Eagle Rock, Oakland MD
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.

Lake Life Love
How did you Deep Creek this weekend? I took some time to enjoy the family. After work on Saturday, I took the boys on a Swallow Falls Hike. That evening, my husband and I enjoyed an awesome meal at the Manor in Oakland. After showings on Sunday morning, we hit the water for Sunday Funday swimming and boating!
Tip of the week
Repairs To Make Before Selling Your Home
So you’re ready to put your home on the market and to you, everything looks great. Unfortunately, much of the wear and tear on your home becomes unnoticeable when it is something you see everyday. While you may not think about the one light switch that doesn’t work or the chipping paint in the guest bedroom, now is the time to take a step back and look at your home with fresh eyes. When you decide to sell your home, the first thing you should do is make any repairs you can to save yourself money in the long run. Here are a few repairs tocross off so you can get the best deal for your home!
1. Paint Your Walls
Re-painting the rooms that need a fresh face is the cheapest way to update the appearance of your home. Consider using light, neutral colors to appeal to a broader group of buyers. If the room is too dark or has chipped or dirty paint, make it look brand new with a coat of paint.
2. Make Minor Kitchen Repairs
Even if your kitchen isn’t large and spacious, a full renovation might not make sense financially. If your agent doesn’t advise you towards a renovation, consider making minor repairs instead. Paint what needs painted and install new fixtures where necessary. If your appliances aren’t operating properly or are in awful shape, you will need to replace them.
3. Update Your Bathroom
The first priority is making sure your bathroom looks clean. If the toilet looks old, replace the seat to give it a fresh new appearance. Replace any tiles that may be missing, clean the grout, and remove old wallpaper that may still remain. This is a room you should consider painting if need be to make it appear bright and clean. 4. Fix The Exterior
The outside of your home is the first thing buyers will see, so it is important that it looks good. Touch up the yard with sod as needed, remove any junk that may be in the yard, and make sure your fencing doesn’t have any missing parts or boards. Mow your grass and consider renting a power washer to make your siding look brand new.
5. Maximize Lighting
The goal is to maximize light so you can maximize the appearance of space. Light does a great job of making rooms look larger than they are. Update your fixtures, ensure that your windows appear clean and new, and add mirrors across from light sources to reflect even more light.
6. Ensure Functionality
Potential buyers are going to want everything to work. Do a full walk through of your home, checking all light switches, doorknobs, and locks. Repair or replace anything that doesn't work as it should. The less issues that arise during the buyer's home inspection, the better chance of you maximizing your profit during the sale.
