Lake. Life. Love.
This was a really wonderful family weekend at Deep Creek Lake! Visits to Canoe on the Run and Huey's Ice Cream in McHenry are always a treat for the boys and I. Canoe offers a unique variety of fresh breakfast and lunch options and delicious coffee. Of course my three year old just sticks with the Frosted Flakes... Huey's Ice Cream is conveniently located beside of the Deep Creek Shop 'N Save grocery store. So while it wasn't part of my plan to get ice cream on Saturday, it was the perfect treat on a VERY dreary day. This week was really one to celebrate! I listed the incredibly beautiful property at Savage River Lodge AND I helped two clients close on their sales and purchase. YAY! On Saturday, the Terah Crawford Band played music at one of our favorite Garrett County venues: Sipside Lounge. If you've not been there yet, it's time to visit this super chic and cozy cocktail lounge. Sunday we finally got the snow we've been waiting for! It's still snowing today and we really hope it's here to stay!
Tip of the week
What You Need To Know For Winter House Hunting
While house hunting in the winter was never really a thing of the past, today’s culture keeps things going year-round - which means finding a home can be done at any time of the year. While exploring in the cold might be your focus or concern, house-hunting in less-than-ideal conditions can show you things you can’t always see on a warm, sunny day. Here are some things to keep in mind as you try to find a home before the holidays.
Winter Weather Can Help You See Hidden Flaws
Even if you don’t love the cold and snowy weather, it can help you see household flaws that you may not see in the warmth of summer. Maybe the windows are drafty or there is a major loss in privacy when the trees are bare from the cold. It will also help you to love your home for its’ bones, and only love it more when warmer seasons arrive bringing flowers, grass, and colorful foliage.
Photos Can Help Fill In The Blanks
It can be hard to picture what a poolside oasis looks like when it is covered in snow. This is where photos can save the day. Whether they are listing photos or images from previous owners, seeing certain parts of the home in better weather may check the final box for a home you are falling in love with.
Know How To Handle Features Unavailable In The Winter
If that pool you fell in love with isn’t operational in the winter, you should request that they leave money in escrow or extend the closing time frame so that you can inspect the pool when warm weather returns. Sellers are responsible for remedying any issues unless they provide a disclosure about some part of the pool not working.
