The Smith Mountain Lake home search rises and falls from spring to fall like every other part of the country.  But some SML home buyers could benefit the most from a Smith Mountain Lake home search at a less popular time of the year - winter. Though warm temperatures and blooming landscapes tend to push the real estate search to a peak, wintertime property searches have many overlooked advantages.  In general, buying real estate in the winter months is not as popular as in Spring and Summer. This is especially true in a lake community, where things tend to grind to a halt in times where the lake cannot be accessed and used for recreation as often. However, here are some reasons a wintertime Smith Mountain Lake home search is a smart real estate move.  Smith Mountain Lake is at its Most ...

Though it's been coming down for a few days, I am grateful for the recent rain.  I know rain can affect your mood, especially when it is so gloomy outside. It didn't keep us in on Friday night and we were able to enjoy a great outdoor concert. On Saturday I slogged thru a muddy yard during a home inspection and Yea!, no water issues. I appreciate the vivid green of the trees and how fresh the air smells after a rain. My little dogs love walking no matter what the weather, and though they may come home a bit muddier, I enjoy seeing how happy they are.     Smith Mountain Lake is at full pond now, but  it was just a few years ago that we were in a drought and with so so many areas of our country experiencing severe drought, I will not complain.   The sun will eventually return.

I enjoy living fulltime at Smith Mountain Lake and was invited to join the Nextdoor.com page for  Mountain View Shores. It's an online social network much like Facebook, but private to our neighborhood. This is a quiet community and Nextdoor been a nice way to get to know our neighbors. You can receive notifications either by email or on your smartphone, and there are apps for android and iPhone. We knew at Halloween which neighbors were offering candy. And at Christmas, which homes were decorating. So much helpful information has been posted on the MVS page: referrals for trademen, upcoming yard sales, lost animals and canoes, safety issues, neighborhood activities and the recent issue affecting short term rentals at the lake.   Many lake properties are vacation homes and those owners...

Last weekend, community volunteers gathered to take on our annual Take Pride in Smith Mountain Lake lake cleaning day, highlighted in our last news update. But the lake isn’t the only part of SML that can use a good spring clean. Your lake area home is another place where a day of rubber gloves, soap suds and deep scrubs will make the summer season that much more pleasing. We turn to HGTV’s spring cleaning tips for a few ideas on how to tackle the most challenging household jobs with expert efficiency.    Spring weather makes it a perfect time to tackle the windows. If you can divide and conquer this job, assign one person to the glass and another to a good wipe down of the sills and frame. Use a pressure washer on a light setting to hose down shutters.    Send linens to the laundry. Ma...

Deb Beran Lakefront Realty is as concerned about the wellbeing of Smith Mountain Lake and other local residents as we are interested in matching customers with the best possible home or property. We like to pass along helpful information useful to anyone. One of the rising issues of our society is consumer fraud. Along with identity theft, consumer fraud primarily targets a victim’s finances. While the government is working to protect citizens from fraud, each person would be wise to stay vigilant when it comes to their own accounts. Here are a few tips on protecting against fraud:    - Use Alerts: Be sure to have alerts set up on your checking accounts and credit cards that you are texted or email on transactions that seem suspicious - Change Your Password: Change it often and keep the...

One of the perks of property ownership at Smith Mountain Lake is the opportunity to personalize everything. From the type of lake view to the landscaping to the home style, most land at SML is left up to the owner’s creativity and desires. A recent article in local Laker Weekly newspaper highlights one couple’s choice to make their home log cabin style, with two stories, tall windows opening to vast lake views and a loft boasting a suspended 100-year-old canoe to accent the rustic mountain atmosphere. In the neighborhood are other cabin style homes, along with a variety of different looks. A few community neighborhoods hold to building and grounds restrictions, but most let the homeowners go all out in pursuit of their ideal property.  What’s more, the log cabin in the mountains look go...
