Black Friday and Cyber Monday present an excellent opportunity for vacation rental owners. You can redecorate a room or upgrade electronics for a fraction of the regular cost.

We put together a guide with some of the best deals of the season along with retailers who typically release significant savings.

Keep an eye out for sales on furniture and bedding. If you are not sure where to start, here are a few suggestions of items that will attract and retain guests:

-Replace bedding and get a set that has matching pillow shams
-Create a sitting area in your master suite by adding a cozy chair and end table
-Don’t forget about your outdoor living space! Update resin (plastic) deck furniture with higher quality options.

November 2019 Real Estate Rundown By Jay Ferguson

“There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.” – Mark Twain

My name is Jay Ferguson and I am one of the owners of the real estate division of Taylor Made Deep Creek Vacations & Sales. I am entering my 19th year in the real estate business here in Garrett County and at Deep Creek Lake.If you are interested, you can click here find out more about me personally and my background.

I will be writing a monthly blog post about our local real estate market, sharing & interpreting statistics and offering some insights into the market as a whole…as I see it. These are my personal thoughts and musings about the market in general and are not intended as anything more specific. And, to be clear, I am an optimistic, glass half-full kind of guy.  

Lastly, every stat I reference is based on the official stats published by Bright MLS on or around the 15th of each month. My plan is to give you straightforward stats coupled with my analysis from the front lines and let you interpret what you read in your own way.

October 2019  – We finished the month with 48 new listings, down from 52 new listings last month. There 50 fewer homes for sale right now than last month and the median price in October was $210,000. People seem to get better deals in the fall with the listings that may not want to spend another winter on the market for sale. We are squarely in the off-season here at the lake right now, waiting for ski season to start and the holidays to arrive. In looking back on this stats blog that I have been writing all year, I am thankful for those of you who continue to read and follow up with the real estate market at Deep Creek Lake!
