With the mercury rising here in Lincoln, sitting on a sandy shoreline and a dip in the cool water is starting to sound pretty good. Lucky for us in Lincoln, beautiful Lake Tahoe is only a quick drive up the hill. With plenty of beaches and restaurants to chose from, a day trip to Tahoe is a great way to beat the heat.
Whenever we visit Tahoe, we are sure to stop at the kid’s favorite ice cream shop. Located in Incline Village on the North Shore, Susie Scoops is a must visit for a large assortment of locally made ice creams with a delicious flavor to suit any taste. Make sure to grab one of their homemade dipped waffle cones and enjoy some sun on the patio!
From there, there are always lots of options when it comes to enjoying time by the crystal clear waters of Lake Tahoe. Kings beach is a great option, but it can fill up quickly, so be sure to stake out a spot earlier in the day. Perfect for the family looking for a little more excitement at their day at the beach, Kings beach is a hot spot to rent paddle boards or enjoy parasailing or other activities on the water.
North Tahoe beach is another option and is great because of it’s nearby lots of places to grab a quick bite before heading out and the Safeway across the street. We like to stop by and fill up the cooler before we settle in for some time on the sand.
One of my favorite beaches in Tahoe is Sand Harbor beach. The views here are some of the best in the area, and beautiful rock formations and calm water make for a breathtaking spot to kick back and relax.
After a day in the sun, our favorite restaurant to visit is Rosie’s Cafe in Tahoe City. With lots of options, this local spot for homestyle cooking is sure to have something for everyone. Nothing hits the spot quite like one of their burgers!
One of my favorite things about living in Lincoln is the proximity to so many great places. There’s no need to spend too much time in the car or hop on a plane to get away. If you’re looking to get away there are so many great options for day trips this summer- I’d recommend a visit to Lake Tahoe be one of them!

When people come to me about listing their property, one of the first things they ask is “how do I get my house ready to show?”. It may seem like common sense, but how the home shows and what a seller does to prepare it can make a huge difference on not only being able to sell, but also getting a price you are happy with.
Here are a few basic tips to consider when getting ready to put your home on the market:
When selling a house, you want to make sure that the people looking at it can picture themselves living there. Removing some personal items such as family photos, and clearing out things from around the house and counter tops like cosmetics, hair products or small appliances can go a long way in helping the buyers visualize the home as a “blank slate”.
- De- Clutter
Take this chance to lighten your moving load! Donating items taking up extra space in the closet and getting rid of unnecessary clutter makes your space appear larger and more desirable. Clear off any extra clutter on counters, magnets on fridges and books off of nightstands. You may consider renting a storage unit, and look at it as an opportunity to get a head start on your packing.
Along the same vein, taking a chance to organize areas like closets and shelves makes a huge difference in how your home appears. This can be as simple as taking time to make sure your home entertainment center is free of excess wires, or making sure everything has a place in the closet. Containers or baskets make everything look more orderly and could make the move easier.
It might not make sense to put too much money into a home you plan on selling, but a few cosmetic tweaks can have a big impact on how it shows. Are there any unsightly holes or annoying leaky faucets? Some buyers might be put off by simple things, so small things like painting any bright accent walls a nice neutral color or making sure obvious things are in good repair can influence how the listing is viewed.
- Clean, Clean, Clean
One of the biggest “make or break” moments is when a buyer looks at a home that is clean or not. If a potential purchaser walks into an area and it’s visibly dirty or smells, chances are they aren’t going to be too comfortable taking much of a look around. Making sure carpets are vacuumed, things are dusted and wiped down and there are no unpleasant fragrances is something that absolutely must be done when trying to sell a house. Areas like kitchens and bathrooms should be cleaned frequently when showings are happening. A deep cleaning before your home hits the market is always a good idea.
- Amp Up the Curb-Appeal
Almost all buyers like to take the chance to do a drive-by before they make an appointment to see a house so they can get a feel for the house and the neighborhood. Make sure to keep the lawn mowed, trim up any shrubs and maybe plant a few flowers for some color. The front of your house is the first impression, so make sure it’s a good one!
Listing your house, especially for the first time, can be a stressful experience filled with a lot of questions. However, choosing an agent with experience and expertise makes all the difference. Having sold homes for over 15 years in Lincoln, I know how to navigate even the toughest deals, ensuring you get top dollar when you decide to sell.
