How to Stage Your Lake Nacimiento Home to Sell

Lake Nacimiento Real Estate

Lake Nacimiento Home Staging Tips

If you are getting ready to sell your Lake Nacimiento home this summer, it’s important to stage the home to sell! This means that when buyers look at the photos or view the home in person, it will look as much like a model home as possible, and the buyer will be able to imagine living there. As your Lake Nacimiento real estate agent, allow me to offer you some tips on this!

There are certain areas to focus on when staging any home to sell, such as the front entrance, because that is what buyers will view first. However, when selling a lake home, there are also special ‘lake features’ that you should focus on if you have them!

Here’s a rundown of how you should prepare your Lake Nacimiento home for a sale:

1.  Show off the lake! If you’ve got views of the lake from your home, flaunt them! Clean all of your windows, but especially the ones that face the lake, as buyers will definitely be checking out the view. Remove lamps, window treatments or anything else that may be blocking the view. Make it obvious!

2.  Improve your lake amenities. If you’ve got a private dock, replace worn or broken boards, and consider painting or staining it. Many homeowners neglect this task, so you’ll stand out! If you’ve got a beachy area on you property, remove weeds and rake the sand to make it look clean and inviting.

3.  Spruce up outdoor space. A lake homeowner is going to want to spend time outdoors. Clean, stain and/or upgrade your deck, patio or whatever outdoor space you’ve got, especially that which faces the lake. Mow the lawn, add beautiful landscaping, set an outdoor table for a barbecue, etc.

4.  Wash your exterior. You should literally wash your home’s exterior with a power washer, to remove dirt and debris that has built up over time. Wash the outside of the windows, trim trees and bushes, wash driveway, sidewalks and all walking surfaces, wash light fixtures and mailbox… you’ve got the idea.

5.  Clean the interior. Same goes for the interior! Clean everything until your Lake Nacimiento home looks cleaner than it’s ever been! Remove as much clutter as you can. Take down personal photos and refrigerator drawings and make the home as neutral as you can.

6.  Emphasize lake living. Once you take away personal photos, toys, homemade art, clutter, etc., your home might look empty! Purchase some affordable artwork of lakes, sunsets, boats, etc. If you’ve got photos of Lake Naci that you’re proud of, frame those! Offer a map of the lake and area.

If buyers are looking to buy a Lake Nacimiento home, it means they want to enjoy lake living! As a seller, it’s in your benefit to emphasize the lake as much as you can. Need more tips for selling your Lake Naci home? Ready to list it? Contact me! As a Lake Nacimiento real estate agent, I am here and ready to help you out!

Events to Enjoy Right Now in Monterey County

Monterey County Events

Rodeo Salinas in Monterey County

As your Central Coast real estate agent, I am here to fill you in on fun and exciting events taking place in and around San Luis Obispo County and Monterey County! My last couple blog posts have been about the California Mid-State Fair taking place in Paso Robles, so today, let’s talk about all the fun events and activities taking place in Monterey County right now.

Mark your calendar for these ongoing events:

  • Carmel Bach Festival began July 15 and runs until July 29. This event has been taking place for 80 years! Musicians from all around the world visit various venues around Carmel-by-the-Sea to perform during this festival, including the Sunset Center, Carmel Mission Basilica, Church in the Forest and more. You can find a full calendar of performances and ticket info on the festival website.
  • California Rodeo Salinas begins July 20 and runs through July 23! Top cowboys and cowgirls travel to Salinas to compete at the Salinas Sports Complex during this event. General admission is $14 for adults and $7 for kids. Aside from the rodeo, you can also enjoy a kid’s corral, shopping, food booths, saloons, cantinas, motorcycle jumpers, bareback riders and more.
  • Evenings by the Bay take place at the Monterey Bay Aquarium each weekend of summer, so upcoming dates include July 21-22, July 28-29 and so on, through Sept. 2. From 6 to 8 p.m., enjoy extended hours along with sustainable food, wine tastings, specials programs, live music and more, while you hang out with your favorite marine animals. This is included with general admission on those days!
  • If you love yoga, the outdoors, wine or all three, you’ll love Yoga in the Vines! This takes place at Folktale Winery in Carmel every Saturday morning, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. Cost is $20 for a 90-minute balanced flow class. Bring your own mat and enjoy the views of Rose vineyards, and then stick around afterward for a complimentary glass of Folktale wine! This is a great place to meet others in the community.

For more events coming up in Monterey County, such as live music, family movies, solar eclipse lectures and dance lessons, check out the full list of upcoming events from See Monterey. There is something for everyone to enjoy in the Central Coast region of California!

I hope you’re enjoying your summer, and when ready to accomplish your Central Coast real estate market goals, contact me. As a Monterey County real estate agent, I am here to help you buy, sell or both. I’ve got plenty of active listings on Lake Nacimiento right now, and I can help you buy or sell anywhere on the Central Coast! Give me a call and let’s make your dreams a reality this summer.

What to Do at California Mid-State Fair

California Mid-State Fair

California Mid-State Fair

The California Mid-State Fair begins next week! It runs from July 19 through July 30 this year at the Paso Robles Event Center. In our last blog post, we shared who will be performing at the Fair this year, from famous acts that require an extra ticket, to local bands that are included with Fair admission.

As your Central Coast real estate agent, I’d like to fill you in on what else you can look forward to at the California Mid-State Fair this year, aside from live music! There is so much to do there, it’s hard to keep track sometimes. Here’s a general synopsis of the days to come in Paso Robles.

Entertainment options at the Fair extend way beyond live music! Attend the 98.1 KJUG Barndance, sign your babies up for the Diaper Dash, fall in love with the Farm Fresh Kids, let your kids create art at Kids Art Smart, let off steam at the Fun Zone, enter one of the Public Contests, sign up for the Tractor Races, meet farm animals at the Petting Zoo, and so much more.

The Carnival is a huge attraction for kids and families, and this year, tickets for the carnival rides are going to cost about half as much as they have in past years! There are rides for kids and teens of all ages. From the Carousel, Frog Hopper and Farm Bounce, to the Big Splash water ride, Cliff Hanger and House of Zombies, there is something for everyone to enjoy.

Demonstrations are a great way to learn something new while getting involved and meeting others with the same passions as you. Kids will enjoy the Bugs, Slugs & Spiders demo. Adults may enjoy the Cake Decorating demo. You can also sit back and watch the Strongest Man & Woman contest, square dancers, zoo animals, youth performances and more.

Livestock shows and contests are a big part of California Mid-State Fair! There are events taking place throughout the week and half, such as poultry shows, rabbit shows, sheep dog trials, dog show, dairy goat show, swine showmanship and many others. Show off your livestock or just attend and admire everyone else’s!

Let’s not forget all of the amazing food you can find at the Fair as well! New vendors this year include Crave Mini Donuts, Top Notch Concessions, The Hurricane Kitchen, The Gingerbread Shop, Pon’s Chinese Food, Baja Lobster Dogs and William’s Concessions. Bring your appetite and stay hydrated!

More information about all of the activities and schedule of events can be found on the Fair website, along with special admission days. As your Central Coast real estate agent, I hope you and your family get to head to the Fair at least once to enjoy it! It’s a great example of old-fashioned fun that the Central Coast still thrives on.

When ready to accomplish your Central Coast real estate market goals this summer, contact us!

Know the Rules
Oak Shores

Below are a few friendly reminders about the current parking regulations:

Parking in the Main Marina is “owner’s only” on Saturday, Sunday and major Holidays.
Unattached trailers are not allowed to be parked in the parking lots or on the streets at any time, and overnight parking  in the Marina and West Ramp parking lots is not allowed.
The 7 day in 3 day out rule in the public boat slips is being strictly enforced. Please keep track of the time that your watercraft is parked in the slips to avoid a $100 fine.
Both the Main Marina and West Ramp are closed at 10pm. If you plan to go out on your boat later than that or go night fishing, please come to the office for a Special Use Permit so that your vehicle is marked as permitted to be in the parking lot after 10pm.

Canopy policy:
This year the canopy policy is going to be strictly enforced to keep the beach areas open and clean and give everyone an opportunity to enjoy the areas. Canopies will not be allowed to be left on any beach at the West Ramp or Main Marina for longer than 7 days, and if left for 7 days, it must be used every day, but we do highly suggest that canopies be removed daily. Please respect this rule. The staff will remove all canopies that are in violation of the rule.

If you have any questions about any of these items, please feel free to contact our office.
