Greetings from Deep Creek Lake-Memorial Day

Betsy Holcomb


Greetings from Deep Creek Lake,

Memorial Day weekend is upon us and it looks like most of the docks and boats are in the water for the season.  Now we just need the skies to clear and make for a perfect weather weekend, which I hear is in store.  No rain in the forecast and mild (but sunny) temps in the low to mid 70’s.  Dust off your paddleboards, kayaks and waterskis and get out on the water for some weekend fun!  And, let’s remember the meaning of this holiday by thanking and remembering those who have served.

Greetings from Deep Creek Lake-Memorial Day Greetings from Deep Creek Lake-Memorial Day

The housing outlook from the “economists and experts” is that prices are expected to increase in 2014 by 4.4%.  More than 100 housing panelists participated in a recent quarterly survey to arrive at this prediction for home values. (  Within our own office, our numbers indicate that we are up 10% over last year.  In analyzing the activity and sales within my own team, this number feels about right.

A good many properties have come on the market within the last 30 days.  If you are not setup on our auto email service where you receive listings that match your criteria as soon as they become available, and would like to be, please let us know.  Our featured listings for the week are the following: a beautiful log home with fabulous mountain views (recently reduced), a custom mountaintop home with 6 master suites and incredible water views & a contemporary lake access home with a dock slip in a great location off of Lake Shore Drive

If you’re looking to get out and about and be entertained, consider some of these activities:
