Highlands Vacation Homes, Maintenance Essential


Highlands NC real estate

Meadows Mountain Realty, Highlands real estate

Owners of Highlands vacation homes are aware that maintenance is essential for the upkeep of their investment. Vacation homes require routine check-ups to ensure that issues are being taken care of, and these check-ups can often be different than those of primary residences due to sporadic use or heavy renting.

If you own a vacation home in Highlands NC and rent it out you may be unaware of issues unless a renter points one out. It is a great idea to take a walk-through of your home between rentals and examine key systems, like heating and plumbing. It is also important to keep an eye out for pest and insect control.

Owning a home in Highlands NC as a getaway ultimately means there are long periods of time when the home is not in use. Having a property manager to complete routine checks on your home can be a great idea.

Highlands NC Homes, Lawn Care Advice


Highlands real estate

Meadows Mountain Realty, Highlands real estate

Owners of Highlands NC homes, we have some greta lawn care advice. Part of being a REALTOR® means access to wide variety of information, much of which is related to homes and home care. Here in Highlands NC lawns are a big part of a home’s curb appeal and knowing the dos and don’ts can be quite helpful.

The main rules that apply to lawn care involve cutting and root care. As far as cutting the lawn of your Highlands property consider length and what you are cutting with. Cutting a lawn too short can cause distress to the grass and alter its growing patterns. It is also important to use sharp blades when cutting grass, dull edges can chew up the ends of grass and make for an unattractive end product. As for root care, aeration allows for more nitrogen to get in the soil which helps induce healthier growth.

Contact the team at Meadows Mountain Realty for more information on real estate in Highlands NC. We pride ourselves on keeping up with the market and the community. Let our knowledge and experience help you with all of your Highlands real estate needs.

Highlands NC Homes, Shade Lowers Temperature Inside


Highlands real estate

Meadows Mountain Realty

When it comes to Highlands NC homes, shade lowers the temperature inside while creating comfortable spaces to enjoy outside.  A covered porch or a large shade tree helps protect the inside of your home from direct sun, effectively cooling your home and eliminating the need for air conditioning or at the very least assisting your cooling system.  If your home feels hot consider making some changes and help lower temperatures without turning on the air conditioning.

The best way to naturally cool the temperature of your Highlands home is to plant a tree.  Speak with the local gardening association or a landscaping company to find out what grows best here in the Highlands area as well as what trees grow faster and fuller.  Trees add great instant shade.  Another rout to go is adding awnings to your home.

Contact the team at Meadows Mountain Realty today to learn more about trends with homes in Highlands NC.  We welcome the opportunity to help you get to know the area as well as what buyers are looking for in today’s market.  We know Highlands NC and we know Highlands real estate.
