Make the Most of Your Time at Lake Nacimiento

Lake Nacimiento Activities

Spend quality time at Lake Nacimiento

Whether you live on Lake Nacimiento permanently, you stay in a long-term or vacation rental, you visit for a weekend of camping or glamping, or you visit for a day trip, make the most of your time at the lake! Summer is quickly coming to a close, so as your Lake Nacimiento real estate agent, I am here to offer you some tips on how to increase the quality of your lake time.

I recently came across a blog post from Mommy Has a Story about a couple who spent their wedding anniversary at Lake Nacimiento. Her tips were offered for how to have a romantic lake getaway, but most of them hold true for anyone looking to spend quality time at the lake!

Take a page out of her rulebook:

1.  Go cell phone and Wi-Fi free. Whether you’re here for a short trip or a permanent stay, it’s a great reminder not to spend all of your lake time on your phone. Take a few pictures, then put the phone away. This will force you to talk and interact with each other, which could result in better memories!

2.  Bring music. Music is always a great way to amp up the energy and make the atmosphere fun! Bring a portable CD player, or load up songs on your smartphone and bring portable Bluetooth speakers. The internet might not work on your phone, so plan ahead with a playlist!

3.  Go boating. If you spend time at Lake Nacimiento, you’ll want a boat! Whether you have your own, or you rent one, be sure to spend quality time on the water. It could be a speed boat, pontoon boat, fishing boat, kayak, paddle board, blowup tube, whatever you prefer. If it gets hot, jump into the water!

4.  Get out of your comfort zone. Do something that you normally don’t do at Lake Naci. If you usually cruise around on a pontoon boat, consider trying your luck at some water sports off a speed boat. Jump off some of the cliffs around the lake. Rent a jet ski. Get your adrenaline pumping!

5.  Bring wine. Every occasion is better with some local Central Coast wine, am I right? Take some time to go wine tasting in the Paso Robles region and get to know the local wineries. Purchase a bottle or two of your favorite wines and enjoy from your deck or around a campfire.

Keep things interesting by trying some new activities at Lake Nacimiento before summer is up, and make sure the time you spend with loved ones is quality time! If you’re interested in purchasing a Lake Nacimiento home, contact me. As a Lake Naci real estate agent, I am here to help you accomplish all of your buying and selling goals in the Central Coast real estate market!

Lake Nacimiento Summertime Activities

Lake Nacimiento

Enjoy water sports on Lake Nacimiento

Summer is the perfect season for hanging out at Lake Nacimiento! The sun is shining, the weather is hot, and this summer, Lake Naci is fuller than it has been in years! To help you plan your summertime activities at the lake, check out this guide. Whether it’s your first year living at the lake, you’re relocating to Lake Naci soon, you’re renting a home for the summer, or you’ve lived here forever, you’ll want to keep this guide handy! As your Lake Nacimiento real estate agent, I am here to answer any questions you may have about the lake.

Here’s a few popular activities to enjoy:

  • Water Sports – Have you tried your luck on water skis or a wakeboard? Lake Nacimiento has miles of inlets and coves, open bays and winding rivers, making it ideal for boats to spread out and cruise around turns! This is why it’s so popular for waterskiing, fly-boarding, wakeboarding, wake surfing, paddle boarding, tubing, jet skiing and more. We see a lot of photos and videos of people enjoying water sports on our Lake Nacimiento Facebook page! If you have one you’d like to share, visit our page and do so!
  • Fishing – If water sports are a little too wild for your liking, you might be more of a fishing fan. There’s nothing better than heading out to the lake early in the morning, or late into the evening, and catching a sunrise or sunset while relaxing in your fishing boat and seeing what you catch. Lake Nacimiento is the only lake in California stocked with white bass, and you’ll also find largemouth and smallmouth bass, bluegill and crappie, carp and catfish. Head to an inlet and enjoy some quiet places to cast your line!
  • Boating – Even if you’re not pulling skis or tubes on the end of your boat, you can still cruise out on the lake any time you wish! All types of boats are popular on Lake Nacimiento, from pontoon boats and speed boats, to kayaks and canoes, so just pick the one that best suits you. Pack some sandwiches, water and ice cold beverages, and make a day of it, cruising around the pristine waters, and jumping off the boat for a swim from time to time to cool off in the water!
  • Community Activities – Local communities that surround Lake Nacimiento offer tons of fun, family-friendly activities at the lake all summer long! For example, at Oak Shores, there are Friday Night Pontoon Boat Nights, where you head out on a boat and cruise with your neighbors! There are also special events at the pool, outdoor movies, potluck dinners and more. You can keep up with these events on our Lake Nacimiento Facebook page, or the Oak Shores Facebook page!

All summer long, you can enjoy swimming, boating, fishing, water sports, community activities, sunset strolls, sunbathing, camping, picnicking and more at Lake Nacimiento. What is your favorite summertime activity at the lake? Leave a comment and share!

Enjoy your summer at the lake, and when ready to accomplish Lake Nacimiento real estate market goals this summer, contact me! I’m your Lake Nacimiento real estate agent, here and ready to help you with your buying and selling needs.

Free Fun in Monterey County This Summer

Free Monterey County Activities

Free fun in Monterey County

Now that Memorial Day weekend is over, it’s time to get out and enjoy summertime on the Central Coast! As your Monterey County real estate agent, I am here to offer you suggestions for free family fun this summer. No one wants to spend a fortune over the summer season, and if you’re in the market for a new Central Coast home, doing more free things will help you save up a down payment!

Here are some options I came up with, with help from a recent See Monterey article:

  • Visit a lake or ocean! What more could you ask for on the Central Coast than a free day at a lake or beach? Head to Lake Nacimiento or Lake San Antonio for fishing, swimming, boating, camping, you name it. Head to the beach for sun bathing on the sand, surfing and riding the waves!
  • Walk or jog along a trail. One great option is the Monterey Bay Coastal Recreation Trail, where you can watch boats come and go, people watch, or try to spot a whale! But you’ve got lots of trail options to choose from throughout the Central Coast.
  • Follow the Path of History through downtown Monterey and view all of the historic adobe buildings and gardens along the way. You’ll learn some Central Coast history you didn’t know before!
  • Visit art galleries. There are many located throughout the Central Coast region, but Carmel-by-the-Sea is one great option. You can explore hidden courtyards and passageways while you’re at it!
  • Bring the kids to Dennis the Menace Park at Lake El Estero. This park is extremely large and unique, it’ll keep them busy for hours! They’ll sleep soundly that night. It’s a great way to blow off steam during summer.
  • Bird watch. Monterey County has plenty of great options for this, including Carmel River State Beach, Garland Ranch Regional Park, and Elkhorn Slough National Estuarine Research Reserve.
  • Drive along Highway 1. Lots of tourists come to do this over the summer season, but when was the last time you appreciated the vast views while cruising with the windows down and the radio up?
  • Go mountain biking. Ford Ord National Monument is a mountain biker’s paradise, with plenty of challenging trails to try out.
  • Visit a farmer’s market. There’s a market in a different Central Coast town every day of the week. You can go just to peruse and try samples, or purchase some of your groceries there and save a trip!
  • Get free appetizers. The Monterey Visitors Center at Lake El Estero has free appetizer vouchers for local restaurants.

For more ideas, check out this See Monterey article. What free fun would you add to this list? Share!

Enjoy the start to your summer in Monterey County, and when ready to accomplish your Central Coast real estate market goals, contact me. As your Monterey County real estate agent, I am standing by, ready to help!

Buy A Lake Nacimiento Home Now!

Lake Nacimiento Real Estate

Buy a Lake Nacimiento home for the summer season!

As your Lake Nacimiento real estate agent, I am here to tell you that this spring/summer season is the ideal time to buy a Lake Nacimiento home! There are plenty of reasons for this, but here’s a few to give you a general idea:

  • We’ve got plenty of listings. Much of the country is plagued with few listings, but we’ve got many at Lake Nacimiento and around the Central Coast! Check out our blog to view the latest listings, and contact us to schedule a private showing.
  • It’s nearly summer. If you’ve got a family, late spring and early summer is the ideal time for you to begin your home search. The kids will be out of school, which makes moving and starting new schools next fall so much easier than doing it in the middle of the school year.
  • Home prices are going up. Real estate experts from around the country all predict that home prices will continue to increase for the rest of this year, and for the next five years. Mortgage rates are also predicted to increase. The sooner you buy, the more you could save!
  • You have goals. If you want to buy a Central Coast home, you clearly have goals in mind that you’d like to achieve. Do you want to stop throwing away money on rent? Do you want to become a ‘lake person’ at Lake Nacimiento? Do you want to start a family, or a yearly vacation at a vacation home, or downsize? Stop putting off your goals and contact us to help you achieve them!
  • Lake Nacimiento is full. If there was ever a summer to live on or near Lake Nacimiento, this is it. After years of drought in California, the Central Coast was finally given the rain it needed this past winter, and the lakes are fuller than they’ve been in years! It’s going to be an amazing, active season at the lake.

To qualify for a mortgage in today’s market, you’ll need a down payment, income verification, good credit history and credit score, stable income, asset documentation and an impartial third-party appraisal. Here are some steps you can take to help you qualify for a mortgage:

1.  Find your credit history and score. Report any errors you find in your credit history, and work on lowering debt and raising your credit score if need be.

2.  Start gathering documentation. This includes W-2 forms, tax returns, bank statements, etc.

3.  Contact a mortgage lender. Determine what type of mortgage you qualify for, and the amount, and then ask for a pre-approval letter to show sellers you’re serious.

4.  Contact a real estate professional. That’s where I come in! As a Central Coast real estate agent, I am here to help you through the entire home-buying process in the Central Coast real estate market, and to support you until the keys to your new home are in your hands.

Contact me to get started on achieving your real estate goals on Lake Nacimiento this season!

You Know You Live On Lake Nacimiento When…

Lake Nacimiento

Why to Live on Lake Nacimiento!

What is a ‘lake person?’ It’s someone who has lived on a lake, vacationed regularly at a lake, spent lots of time at a lake, and dreamt of days spent at the lake. As a Lake Nacimiento real estate agent, and longtime resident, I love this article I found from Odyssey about how you know you’re a lake person.

They mentioned a lot of ways to tell if you are one, but here are a few of my favorites:

  • You wave to everyone. Remember the good old days when everyone would wave and greet each other, whether you knew them or not? Well, lake people are still like that! Everyone is friends at Lake Naci.
  • You drove a boat before a car. Maybe you even drove a boat before you rode a bike! Driving your parent’s boat is like a coming of age. Of course, you were probably sitting on a guardian’s lap.
  • You’ve slept in your swimsuit. Hours spent on Lake Nacimiento will leave you feeling happy and exhausted. Who else has walked inside and immediately fallen into a deep nap while still suited?
  • You have a ‘lake pair’ of everything. You’ve learned not to bring your really nice possessions to the lake. You have lake clothes, shoes, suits, hats, bags, towels, etc. When you shop, you first ask yourself, can I wear/bring this to the lake?
  • Your boat is a hydration station. You’ve learned how thirsty you get while cruising out on the lake, so whether it’s water and Gatorade, or wine and beer, you have as many beverages as you have gasoline!
  • You fall down and get back up again. More times than you care to admit, you’ve been thrown off a tube, taken spills on water skis, slipped of a dock, etc. Then you learn from your mistakes and get back up again. This trait carries over into the rest of your life, too!
  • You have memories to last a lifetime. The sunsets, the boat cruises, the fishing trips, the community events, the neighbors you’ve met, the stories, laughs and lessons. You have a lifetime full of them.

What else would you add to this list? How else do you know a ‘lake person’ from one who is not? They listen to Jimmy Buffet on repeat? Their feet have calluses that can withstand any temperature? They have raccoon eyes from the tan around their sunglasses? Share how you can notice a lake person!

Living on Lake Nacimiento is a marvelous experience, and one you can’t fully understand until you do it. If you’d like to become a lake person, full time or otherwise, contact me. I would love to help you buy a Lake Naci home, and to help you relocate to the Central Coast if need be!

I am a Lake Nacimiento real estate agent, helping people become ‘lake people’ one person or family at a time.

Do You Know How Dog-Friendly SLO County Is?

SLO County

Bring your dog with you when exploring SLO County!

As a SLO County real estate agent, I talk a lot about what a wonderful place SLO County is to live. Did you know that the Central Coast is as dog-friendly as it is people-friendly? The area is loaded with beaches and trails where dogs are allowed, and for free reign, there are tons of dog parks.

If you have recently relocated to the Central Coast, or you recently adopted a dog into your family, keep this list of dog-friendly places in SLO County handy!

If your dog wants a day running in the sand and jumping into waves, here are your beach options:

  • Dogs love Lake Nacimiento! Take your dogs for a dip in the lake any time you please. Here, you don’t have to worry if Fido drinks the water, it’s salt-free.
  • In Avila Beach, your pup can run on the beaches before 10 a.m. and after 5 p.m. to the left and right of Avila Beach Pier. At Olde Port Beach and Fisherman’s Beach, they can run free all day, with leash-optional policies.
  • In Cayucos, dogs are free to wade in the water and sand anywhere, from close to the pier or all the way to Morro Bay! In Morro Bay, they can run free on North Point Beach, or they can be leashed and walked around Morro Rock Beach.
  • For a less crowded option, head to Montana de Oro State Park near Los Osos/Baywood Park. Take Los Osos Valley Road to Pecho Valley Road, and take that to Spooner’s Cove, where you’ll find a spot perfect for a day at the beach, dogs or no dogs.
  • In Pismo Beach, enjoy a stroll with your dog to the left of Pismo Beach pier, or avoid the sand by taking a walk around Dinosaur Caves Park in Shell Beach. You’ll still get great ocean views!
  • Oceano Dunes State Park is another great option for dogs, located just south of Pismo Beach. You can drive right onto the sand and let your dog run and play as much as they want.

Beaches are a great way for dogs to let out steam, as are dog parks! At dog parks, you can befriend other dog owners in the area, and dogs can make friends, too. There are tons of options:

  • Heilmann Dog Park in Atascadero
  • Elm Street Dog Park in Arroyo Grande
  • Cambria Dog Park in Cambria
  • Del Mar Dog Park in Morro Bay
  • Nipomo Dog Park in Nipomo
  • Sherwood Dog Park in Paso Robles
  • Vineyard Dog Park in Templeton
  • Laguna Lake Park in San Luis Obispo, no fence
  • El Chorro Dog Park in SLO, no fence
  • Dinosaur Caves Park in Pismo Beach, no fence

There are also numerous trails that dogs will love as much as you will! Check out the hiking trail options that SLO CAL recommends for dog owners.

The Central Coast is the perfect place to call home for every member of your family! Contact me for help buying or selling real estate in the SLO County real estate market this spring.

Benefits to Living on Lake Nacimiento

Lake Nacimiento Real Estate

Living on Lake Nacimiento, CA

Have you always dreamed of living on a lake? Lake Nacimiento is your perfect chance! As a Lake Nacimiento real estate agent, I have many waterfront listings currently available, and I can fill you in on all of the wonderful perks you can enjoy by living on or near a lake.

One obvious perk is the amazing views you get to enjoy from your home year-round. Look outside and see the calm water and beautiful surroundings. Now that the lake is 56 percent full after all the recent rain we’ve received, the view is even better!

Here are a few more obvious perks to living on or near Lake Nacimiento:

  • You get to enjoy ample privacy. Homes around Lake Nacimiento aren’t as smashed together as most common neighborhoods and communities in the country. You typically get to enjoy more land, more space, and more privacy from your neighbors. This means less noise from people, traffic and other sources.
  • You can relax. Many Americans find it hard to relax, even at home. The to-do list is never-ending. However, when you live on or near Lake Nacimiento, living in this tranquil setting helps you to relax. Start your morning on the back porch, watching the sunrise. Or end your day with a sunset stroll. When your body aches, take a dip in the water.
  • You’ve got endless entertainment options. You barely have to walk outside of your home to find an endless list of entertainment options waiting for you. Go swimming, boating, fishing, or get courageous with popular watersports that take place on the lake. You could also unplug and go camping, even if it’s in your own backyard!
  • You can live a healthy lifestyle. If you have a goal to be healthier this year, it’s easy to accomplish this goal with lake living. Because of all the entertainment and activities at your doorstep, it’s easy to be more active than you might otherwise be. Plus, if you’re more relaxed, you’ll feel healthier, too.
  • You’ve got a community behind you. You can enjoy privacy inside your home, but within the community you live in, you can make friends and find a great support system! The communities I work in often host community events to help everyone get to know one another.

When you are ready to buy a Lake Nacimiento home, contact me! As a Lake Nacimiento real estate agent, I am dedicated to helping Central Coast homebuyers find the home of their dreams on our beautiful, tranquil lake. Contact me for relocation assistance, with any questions you have, or to get started on the home-buying process!

Why You Should Buy Your Lake Nacimiento Dream Home Now

Lake Nacimiento Real Estate

Lake Nacimiento Home Buyers

Have you been putting off the purchase of a Lake Nacimiento home, even though it’s been your dream? Have you been wanting to relocate to the Central Coast, but haven’t felt confident that now is the right time? Have you fallen in love with your dream home but haven’t made an offer yet?

As your Lake Nacimiento real estate agent, I am here to calm some of your fears about the home-buying process. I understand that it’s hard to know when the right time to buy a home is. You constantly wonder what mortgage rates will do, where home prices will go, and what your future holds.

While no one can predict your future, I can give you some insight on the other factors.

Mortgage Rates – I’m sure you’ve heard that mortgage rates are near historic lows right now, but it’s worth repeating. Did you know that in the 1970’s, interest rates were 8.86 percent? In the 80’s, they were a whopping 12.7 percent! In the 90’s they were back to 8.12 percent, in the 2000’s they were 6.29 percent and right now, they are sitting around 3.46 percent.

That means that on a $200,000 house, your mortgage payment in the 1980’s would have been $2,166 for a 30-year fixed rate mortgage. Now, that payment would be $894. That’s a huge difference!

No one can predict when rates will go up again, but many housing experts predict that they will soon. It’s smart to buy now, while you can score such a great rate on a mortgage loan.

Mortgage Values – You’ve been paying close attention to home prices, but what about home values? The price matters right now, but the value matters in the long run. Someday, you will be selling your home, and ideally, you’d like to build equity by the time that day arrives.

According to the latest Home Price Index, home values are projected to increase by 5.3 percent over the next 12 months! This is great news for current buyers. If you wait 12 months to purchase a $250,000 house, you could pay $13,250 more! If you buy now, you could save a lot of money down the road.

Plus, this means that if things keep going in the direction that they’re going now, you can sell your home for more than you bought it for down the road. That is investing in your future.

Personal Reasons — It’s also important to remember why you want to buy the Lake Nacimiento home to begin with. Do you want to raise your family in a quiet, family-friendly area? Do you want to retire at the lake and enjoy mornings fishing or walking along the shoreline? Do you want a space to call your own, or a good place to raise children, or a place that makes you feel safe?

These are all common reasons why people purchase homes. You have a reason to buy a Lake Nacimiento home, so let’s make it happen! Contact me, your Central Coast real estate agent, and we can get going on the home-buying process.

What to Do At Lake Nacimiento This Fall

lake nacimiento

Enjoy Lake Nacimiento this Fall

The seasons change on the Central Coast, but the weather stays warm for quite a while! That means that you’ve still got plenty of time to enjoy time at Lake Nacimiento. The lake is open to the public, and the air is clean. As a Lake Nacimiento real estate agent, I’d like to fill you in on what there is to do at the lake year-round.

If you’re not too familiar with Lake Nacimiento, allow me to introduce you to this Central Coast gem. The lake is famous for its 165 miles of shoreline. Surrounding the lake is gorgeous oak and pine forests. It is situated in the Santa Lucia Mountains and has 18 miles of water to enjoy. So, whether you’re spending time in or out of the water, you’ve got lots of options!

If you’re up for a dip in the water or a boat ride, water sports are incredibly popular on the lake, such as wakeboarding and water-skiing. There’s even a Facebook page dedicated to water sports at Lake Nacimiento. If you love adventure, it’s a great way to meet others who share that adventurous spirit!

If you enjoy something a little more relaxed, there are also plenty of kayakers and paddle-boarders out on the water. You could also take out your speed boat or pontoon boat, or rent one in the area. If you’ve got a fishing boat, fishing is mighty popular on Lake Nacimiento!

This is the only lake in California stocked with white bass. It also has just about every other native warm water fish, including largemouth and smallmouth bass, bluegill, crappie, carp, catfish and more. Fall is one of the best times to catch white bass! Where you should fish in the lake depends on what you hope to catch.

The latest fishing reports say that bass and bluegill have been biting most in Lake Nacimiento, along with some crappie. Head out on the water early in the morning or in the evening for the best chances at a bite, and for more calmness and quietness found on the lake.

If you’re not up for going in the water, you could always hang out on the gorgeous shorelines as well! Fly kites, have a picnic, lounge in the sun, or just sit and watch a sunrise or sunset. If you live on Lake Nacimiento, you have the luxury of enjoying the lake’s beauty from your own backyard, patio or deck, away from the crowds!

Want to buy a Lake Nacimiento home, so you can enjoy these activities year-round? Looking for a vacation home at the lake? I specialize as a Lake Nacimiento real estate agent, and I am ready to help you with all of your home-buying, home-selling or relocating needs. Contact me!

FINAL Chimney Fire Update: 100% Contained!

Chimney Fire Lake Nacimiento

Final Chimney Fire Update from CAL FIRE

After continually posting Chimney Fire updates on this blog and on our Lake Nacimiento Facebook page, I am so thrilled to inform you that as of today, Sept. 6, the Chimney Fire is 100 percent contained!

There may still be lingering smoke, but CAL FIRE says this is not a threat to escape control lines. Should you see a large, dark column of smoke, you should report it immediately to 911. Crews will continue to remain in the fire area for several days, continuing suppression repair work.

As a summary, the vegetation fire began on Aug. 13 and blew through 46,344 acres before full containment was made possible today. During the duration of the fire, 49 resident structures were destroyed, along with 21 other structures. Eight structures were damaged, and only one injury was reported. There were over 4,000 personnel working on containing this fire!

From evacuations to road closures to knowing someone who lost their home, we’ve endured a lot lately around Lake Nacimiento. But many communities were spared, including Oak Shores, and the lake is now open to the public again, with the smoke-filled air becoming a memory.

We won’t soon forget this experience and all the heartache that came with it. But we also will never forget the brave firefighters and first responders who risked their lives for days in order to save our lives and our homes. It is because of their countless hours of work that we’ve reached 100 percent containment, and those of us who had homes to return to owe it to them. We owe them gratitude and prayers for the rest of our lives!

Our Hero Celebration went over wonderfully this past Sunday at Oak Shores! With 438 RSVP’s, we had quite a gathering for dinner, live music, face painting, drinks and more. This was an amazing fundraiser for our community, thank you to all who attended!

If any more local fire updates come through, we will share them with you here and on Facebook. Hopefully no more will! Continue to pray for containment of all the fires taking place in California right now, and for our area to be spared any more fire damage.
