It’s an exciting time after you’ve decided to buy a home on Lake Nacimiento whether in the gated Oak Shores community or Heritage Ranch! The temptation would be to begin looking online at all of the available homes on Lake Nacimiento or to set up times to see homes for sale in Oak Shores or Heritage Ranch. And, while there will be time to do this; there are a few things to keep in mind before beginning your home search!
1. Location, Location, Location– If you are buying a home on Lake Nacimiento you’re probably already well aware of the great location of Lake Nacimiento! Beautiful views, and close proximity to larger cities such as Paso Robles are what make Lake Nacimiento an ideal place for a permanent residence or a vacation home! But, even though you can’t go wrong with any of the homes on Lake Naciminto, in my opinion, you’ll still want to think through either choosing a home in Oak Shores or a home in Heritage Ranch. Do you want to be within steps of Lake Nacimiento or within walking distance to the local grocery? Read more about the 55+ community of Heritage Ranch or the gated community of Oak Shores! Of course, your Lake Nacimiento Realtor can help!
2. Home Features– Think through the home features that are most important to you! Do you dream about a gourmet kitchen or an expansive deck that overlooks the lake? Do you want extra bedrooms for weekend guests or are you looking for more of a private getaway? Do you want a fixer upper or a home that’s move-in ready? Make a list of those things that you won’t budge on in your Lake Nacimiento home and then those things that would be a bonus, but that you don’t necessarily need. This will help you tremendously as you begin your Lake Nacimiento home search.
3. Ask Questions– While many of the homes in Oak Shores or Heritage Ranch will have you day dreaming from the moment you enter the home; be sure to not get too carried away. You want to look at a home with an objective eye in order to ask pertinent questions. Don’t be afraid to speak up if you see something that doesn’t seem right and be sure to ask about recent projects on the home, upgrades, and any other problems that may be an issue. You want to know all the facts up front!
4. Scrutinize– Look in cabinets and closets to see how much storage space you’ll have. Notice the ceilings to see if there’s any damage or leaking. View everything from windows to baseboards to ensure you’ve taken in as much information you can about the home. This will give you a more appropriate idea of what to expect if you buy the Lake Nacimiento home.
