Lake Arrowhead Homes For Sale & So Much More

From the Flat Lands to the Mountains of Lake Arrowhead, CA

Don't get caught off guard when showing or viewing property. While maintaining a professional appearance is important as a Realtor and as a buyer, it is also important to be ready for anything and to be comfortable. First, weather can change on a dime. You can go from sunny blue skies to a rain storm in a matter of minutes. And, let's not forget about snow, especially in the mountains of California, in the winter. No matter if you are down hill or up hill at this point, certain elements can and will become a hazard. From slippery walk ways to a steep mountain or trekking through a vacant piece of land to envision your dream home location. 

Real Estate can sometimes catch you off-guard. You could be looking at one thing and realize there is something else you want to see, which ultimately can affect your location. If you are unprepared it can make for a slippery ride ( literally ). Of course things are very different when you're looking for property in the mountains. Shoes like open toe can be extremely hazardous. Rather than creating a list of what you would need while viewing mountain cabins, I've decided to create a hand list of things you should always keep in your car, no matter what area you are touring homes and land, to keep it simple and precise. 

 

Supply List When Touring Property

 

This list applies for both buyers and Real Estate Agents so that you are never caught off guard.

  • Running and/or closed toe shoes ( for rain, snow events and vacant land and mountain home tours )
  • Bug repellent ( especially for touring vacant properties )
  • Umbrella and/or rain coat/poncho
  • Water & Small Quick Snacks ( the days can be lengthy touring homes and property ) water is essential especially during the hotter months
  • Tape Measure ( how many times have you needed one and didn't have one )
  • Heavy duty flashlight ( in case you ever get stuck out after dark and/or in case you need a weapon )
  • WD-40 ( no more sticky locks )
  • Paper towels ( they work great for hot sticky days, spills and other means )
  • Face Masks ( these are great if you tour homes that have locked up for a while or in basement homes where dampness has set in )
  • Wasp Spray ( this may not apply to all areas but better to be safe especially when touring land )
  • Hand-wipes ( let's face it we never know what we will walk into and sanitizing especially during flu season is crucial
  • First Aid Kit ( anything can happen, anywhere and band-aids are your friend ) 

Every list is personal, so you can make a personal choice has to how much or how little you may want to keep in your car/trunk. Make sure to put items in a duffle bag or old milk crate so they don't fly all over the place.
