Winterizing Your Lake Home

by Sherrie and Joe Toth
Have you started getting your lake home ready for Ohio winter yet? I know, I can’t believe it’s almost here either!

One of the easiest - and cheapest - things you can do to prepare for the cooler temperatures is to buy a $2 protector for your outdoor faucet. This will keep cold air from getting into your pipes and flooding your basement with frozen water, which can cost up to $15,000 to fix. Don’t you love finding a cheap solution to prevent a really expensive problem?

This article has some other great tips for winterizing your lake home, and if you need any other ideas on how to protect your investment, feel free to ask.

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.

Living On The Lake in The Off Season!

by Sherrie Toth

When you think of “Lake Living,” your brain probably automatically associates it with summertime. And rightly so!  Living on a lake is definitely at its peak during those summer months when you can enjoy boating, skiing, swimming and many other countless “summertime-esque” activities                                             .

                                           

Fortunately, Lake Living doesn’t have to die with summer.  It’s just as alive in the off season as any other time-- just in a  different way.                                                                             
 

If you’re bored or looking for “things” to do, it might be a good idea to connect with your Lake’s Social Media outlets (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.).  Through these sites, you can connect with your community and stay in the loop regarding special events and other get-togethers. You might even get to know other people as a result!

 

Summer isn’t the only beautiful season either.  Each season can be admired for its grandeur.  Fall’s gorgeous leaves and colors; Winter’s quiet, white, cool, snow-filled backdrop; and the new life of spring.  Add all of this beauty to the scenery of a lake and you have double beauty.

 

So don’t rule out living on a lake just because you think you can only enjoy it for three months during the year.  Lake Living is a lifestyle that can be enjoyed all year round.
