The 1st 7 figure "SAIL" at Apple Valley Lake

by Carrie Pauken - Blogger

Apple Valley Lake's first million dollar listing is set to "Sail" this afternoon. 895 Kingsway Circle is a spacious, 7,000 sq/ft home with six bedrooms, a three car garage, a theater room, an owners suite fit for a princess, a gorgeous panoramic view of Apple Valley Lake and much more! . You can view the actual listing here.

 

“When asked about their excitement surrounding this monumental Lakefront listing, Toth and Team’s response was actually what I DID expect from them.

“We are so grateful and humbled that we were given the opportunity to list this home. Our team has put forth a lot of effort in making this happen not only for the seller but the buyer's as well. This listing and sale are not just about numbers for us.  It’s about putting forth million dollar effort no matter the list price.”

The Toth's also noted that this closing will be bitter sweet. They enjoyed working with the seller and frankly are sad to see her leave. The bright side of it is, they brought in a wonderful family that they now consider their neighbor and new friends.

The Toth's wanted it mentioned that they will share with anyone the Apple Valley sale history for 2017. Whether on or off the lake.

7 Tips When Considering a Lakefront Home!

by Sherrie Toth

7 Tips When Considering a Lakefront Home:

You’re ready to make the dive, eh?  Purchasing a Lakefront home is the next item on your bucket list and as you get ready to venture into this endeavor, you will have some things to think about first.  A purchase of this magnitude will require much more than a simple Internet search for:” Lakefront properties near me”. While there are several aspects to consider when purchasing a lakefront home, Toth and Team has whittled that list down to seven points.


 

  1. Find a local agent who is a true waterfront/ area specialist.  We cannot stress this enough, hence why it’s number one on the list.  You wouldn’t go to your dentist to perform brain surgery and you wouldn’t hire any agent to help you with your search.  And it doesn’t stop at simply being a Lakefront Specialist-- you also want your agent to be a local specialist.  You want an agent who also lives in the area and knows the ins and outs.  Toth and Team is proud to say that not only are we experts in lake living, but we are also proud owners of a lakefront property on the very lake in which we specialize. We have been second lakefront owners and full time lakefront owners. We know both lifestyles.   

  2. Have a chat with other residents.  Along the lines of getting expert advice, why not talk to others who live there?  Do they enjoy living in the community?  How long have they been there? What are the greatest challenges? What are the benefits?

  3. What will be your waterfront responsibilities?  Your agent will be able to give advice or direct you with this one.  If you’re new to waterfront properties, you might want to do research on what your new responsibilities will be.  Consider the fact that your backyard is your new front yard-- it is visible for all to see now with boaters driving by.

  4. Look into loans early.  Start the prequalification process early.  Purchasing a Lake Home is typically a very large purchase and available to those who are extremely qualified.  You will want to start this process early because it can take a lot longer than the normal home loan process. Another note to consider is, a second home requires more money down.

  5. Lake Location. Are you happy to be located anywhere on the lake or do you desire a specific area?  Depending on where your property is located (East, West, North, South) you could experience more day time sun (sunrise) or more evening sun (sunset)-- all of which are YOUR preference.  Do you want to reside on the main lake or would you prefer a more quaint, quiet cove?

  6. Boat restrictions: Make sure you understand the restrictions at the lake. For instance, did you just purchase a 22ft Mastercraft? This boat would not be approved for Apple Valley Lake. Our team is well informed and educated on the dos, don’ts, cans and can'ts

  7. Picking the right real estate professional. Understand that lakefront at most lakes is highly desired. We know our “niche” market well. At the time you are looking, we can update you what is happening and what we predict will happen on the waterfront. -Many times we know about homes before they list in the MLS!  Many homes in 2017 on the lakefront, sold within days and even hours.

Do you have questions?  Maybe you’re not ready to jump right in, but you just want to talk.  That’s what we’re here for.  Let’s chat over a cup of coffee!  Contact us  and we can help!

 

Fall Landscaping

by Sherrie Toth

When summer ends, some people cover their patio furniture and stash their gardening tools away until the first sign of spring in the next year. More and more people, however, are embracing the great outdoors outside their homes with a number of interesting landscape trends.

Fire features are big, with everything from new twists on fire pits (like the glass gas fire pit, below) to outdoor fireplaces controlled with your smartphone in your backyard or by you dock at the lake. 



Plan a fall garden with as much fervor as you’d plan your spring garden, focusing on plantings like boxwoods and maples that reach peak bloom during fall and winter.

And when you can’t stand the cold any longer, you can bring the green inside with whole walls made out of green plants and tropical gardens nurtured inside year-round.

Fall is a still a great time to sell or buy a lake home. Contact us and we can let you know what the lake home market is doing.

Opening up the Lake House!

by Joe Toth

One of the fun parts of owning a lake house at Apple Valley Lake or any Ohio Lake for that matter is opening it up for the season. Unless you plan ahead, you might forget some tasks.  Here are a few tips to get the first weekend at the lake off to a good start. 

Your Checklist

To make sure you don't forget anything, write down a checklist of everything you have to do before you leave home and what must be done when you arrive at the lake. It takes a little extra time, but a checklist is the easiest way to make sure you get everything done. 

1. Contact the utility company and phone company to turn on your services. We have contact numbers right here for you
2. Get all your cleaning supplies, clothing, food, and all your family's needs together.
3. Make sure the insurance policies for your cottage, boat, trailer, and other documents you need are ready to go.

When You Arrive

1. Take inventory of your property. Check the property outside for any damage that may have occurred during the winter. 
2. Check the phone and power lines.
3. Check the roof and chimney for damage.
4. Inspect the windows and screens.
5. Check the structure under the cottage including beams and posts.
6. Check the deck and see if it needs a fresh coat of paint or stain.


Indoor Inspection of the Cottage

It's important to check the ceilings for any water leaks and do the necessary repairs as soon as possible. You should inspect all windows for leaks and functionality, check cupboards and drawers for signs of mice and clean them thoroughly. Put out fresh sheets and blankets, fluff up the towels and you're ready to enjoy Apple Valley Lake for the next season. 

A good once over cleaning

Open up all of the windows and air out the cottage! Its been several months so dust is going to build up. Sherrie's favorite sent at our lake house is lemon. She has tried them all and has found that Pine Sol Lemon is the best! Wipe down cabinets, floors and counter tops.  A quick once over will make things sparkle and smell fresh again. 

Needing a service provider to help with projects?  Here is our community list of KNOXPROS 

What are some of your tasks that you do to get the lake house ready?
