Easy Ways to Save on your Electric Bill this Summer

With the climb in temperature, it's time to prepare your home for the heat of summer. While cooling your home is probably at the top of your list, keep in mind that comes along with a hefty electric bill. Like many Americans, you may want to try to cut back on your energy consumption this summer. It's important as a homeowner to find ways to keep your home comfortable, while cutting back on your expenses. Your trusted real estate agents in Sunrise Beach, MO are here for you! Eagle's Nest Realty has provided some helpful tips to save on your electric bill this summer!


Invest in the Right Thermostat


It can be helpful to regulate the temperature inside your home with a programmable thermostat. This can help you set different times of the day for the temperature to fluctuate. If you're gone to work there is no reason to keep your home cooled off. This smart thermostat helps you program what times of the day you want the air to be up and what days it can turn off.

Use Household Appliances Strategically


To reduce the build up of unnecessary heat inside the home, try to run your appliances during early morning or evening hours. To avoid heating up the home during the hottest times of the day, avoid using your oven, dishwasher, and doing laundry during the afternoon hours.

Utilize Fans for a Breeze


A fan circulating air throughout your home can help a room FEEL cooler than it actually is. This is a great way to be able to keep your home at a warmer temperature, while enjoying a cool breeze. Crank up the fans to help keep you and your family cool this summer.

Unplug Unused Devices


Vampire energy can pull your electricity, even when the device is not in use. Whether you don't use your microwave or television very often, consider unplugging these items until they are needed. You may notice a positive impact on your electric bill this summer!

Close Off Unneeded Rooms


If you have a spare room or a basement that is not occupied on a regular basis, consider blocking off these spaces to keep from cooling unused. You can close the door and shut off the vents to the room you are wishing to close off from the air conditioner.

Turn Off Those Lights


While this may seem like a nag from your childhood - don't forget to turn off the lights! Although there are plenty of ways to reduce your energy consumption, an EASY way is to remind everyone in your home to turn off the lights after they leave a room!

Now that you know some of these insider tips, you're ready to keep your home cool while cutting back on your electric consumption! If electric expense has been holding you back from purchasing a home of your own, there's no need to worry. The best team of real estate agents at the Lake of the Ozarks are here for you. From searching for the right home for your wants and needs to purchasing property at the Lake of the Ozarks, we want to help you to be able to experience the joys of homeownership.

Prepare Your Home for Your Next BBQ

With bar-b-que season upon us, this is a great time to ensure your home is prepared for your next gathering. From a safety check to making sure you have enough food for your guests, there are some easy ways to get ready, before your next BBQ. Once you're in your dream home at the Lake of the Ozarks, you may want to host your first gathering. Our team of real estate agents in Sunrise Beach, MO are here with some helpful tips on how to prepare your home for your next BBQ!


Clean the Grill

Since your guests' food will be prepared on the grill, it's important that it has been cleaned since its last use. Scrape any charred food off of your grill top, before cooking for your next BBQ. It is also nice to clean up the outside of your grill, since your guests will likely see it on the deck or patio.

Wash the Windows

With a number of windows and sliding doors that typically lead to a deck or porch, ensure your windows are spic and span before your next get together. While entry doors and sliding doors will usually get smudged up during your gathering, it's nice for them to start with a clean slate, allowing guests to see in and out of your home with ease.

Sweep the Deck

Since your guests will likely be outside, enjoying the beautiful summer weather at the Lake of the Ozarks, you want to ensure your outside space is clean. Sweeping the deck off gives a clean and safe place for your friends and family to gather this summer.

Inspect Guest Seating

Before you invite your guests to take a seat, ensure the seats you have provided are clean and dry. While outdoor cushions are ideal for comfort, they can also hold water. If there has been rain recently, ensure your seats are dry before allowing guests to sit down.

Clean up the Bathroom

Even though you imagine your party being outside, your guests will likely need to use the restroom at some point or another during your BBQ. Do a quick clean up of the bathroom nearest your deck, before your guests come over for your gathering.

Give your Kitchen a Once-Over

While the majority of your gathering will likely be on your deck or patio, it's still important that your kitchen is presentable. If a guest offers to help you bring your food outside or clean up after your group has finished eating, you don't want to give off the impression of a dirty kitchen.

Ensure Deck is Safe

Before inviting friends and family over this summer, make sure your deck is in a safe condition. Ensure all railings are secure to keep all of your guests safe, if they happen to lean against a deck rail. Over time, deck nails can start to pop up - take a hammer and nail them back into place to avoid a foot injury or tripping hazard.

Now that you know what you need to accomplish before hosting your next gathering, you can be fully prepared when your guests come over. If you're looking to buy a home at the Lake of the Ozarks, we can help you find the perfect one! Whether entertaining space or outdoor area is ideal for your dream home, Eagle's Nest Realty is here for you. We look forward to helping you find the right space for all of your entertainment needs!

While curb appeal is important all year round, it becomes a focal point in the spring and summer months. An important factor in selling your home is the curb appeal of your exterior. If you're interested in upping your curb appeal, check out the tips provided below, by the best real estate agent in Sunrise Beach, Missouri. To get your exterior ready to list your home for sale at the Lake of the Ozarks, contact us today!


To start your curb appeal efforts, take note of what you would like to improve. Stand at the edge of your property and look at your home, with buyers in mind. What would catch the eye of someone who is looking to buy a home? Many times, potential buyers will drive by a property, before deciding to schedule a showing. Curb appeal is a BIG DEAL - focus on ways to attract buyers into your home.

Keep the Yard Trimmed

It's imperative to the overall look of your home to keep the yard mowed on a regular basis. Along with mowing, ensure all twigs and leaves are picked up. Even though it's spring, there are still a few stray leaves that may remain from the winter months.

Add Some Color

Try to incorporate a pop of color into your curb appeal efforts. This can range anywhere from planting new spring flowers to adding a colorful statement piece, like a bird bath or large vase. Hanging baskets are another way to bring some color to the front porch (and get potential buyers to look up).

Think Exterior Lighting

If the outside of your home lacks lighting, think about adding some solar lights to your walkway. This can help give a clear vision of where buyers should walk, when they make their way to your front door for a showing. A light by the front door can also increase the safety factor, of those entering and exiting your home, after dark - an added bonus for buyers.

Tidy Up Your Space

A clean front yard is important to allow potential buyers to focus on the home, instead of other items on the lawn. If you have kids, ensure their play toys and items are picked up, after they are done playing with them. The last thing you want is your front yard to be cluttered with bikes, soccer balls, and other toys, when a buyer comes to look at your home.

Consider Shutters or Trim Work

If the exterior of your home could use a face lift, consider adding new trim along the edge or shutters to surround the windows. This can completely change the look of a home and give it a fresh, clean look. These items can help to give your home crisp and definite lines, to make it pop.

Make a Clear Path

If there is not a clear path up to your front door, it's time to create one. Whether you want to add a stepping stone side walk or create a walkway with landscape gravel, it's important to show potential buyers the path to the front door - after all, that's where you want them to look and be intrigued what's inside!

Add Prominent House Numbers

House numbers are a BIG DEAL, especially when buyers are looking to see if they have found the right home. If you don't already have a number on your home, it's time to add it. Try to find numbers that will stand out against the home's exterior.

With your new-found knowledge of improving your curb appeal, you're ready to start taking action. If you're interested in selling your home near the Lake of the Ozarks, give Eagle's Nest Realty a call. We can help you prepare your home to list on the market and help to gain exposure for your property, to reach the largest amount of potential buyers possible!

"We enjoyed working with Bill because he is very patient and fun to work with. Most of all he has a lot of knowledge about the lake area and this made us feel safe when making our decisions. Because of this we wouldn't work with anyone else...." 

Jim & Mini Basque ~ Sunrise Beach, MO


"Allyn and I want to thank you and Sky for your very professional efforts to sell our vacation home at the Lake of the Ozarks. We have sold a number of homes over the years and have not had a better experience, even though we expected it would be more difficult to sell a vacation property. Your attention to detail and fast response helped to reduce our level of stress throughout the process. Please let us know if we can recommend you to anyone as we already have to our neighbors!"

- Michael J. Hoke ~ Sunrise Beach, MO


"We met Bill & Sky Johnson quite accidentally last summer as we purchased a boat from one of their friends. That purchase lead almost immediately to a beautiful home in the same area, and they acted as our realtor in the transaction. What professionals! They acted with integrity and ethics in all of their dealings with us, and were 200% customer service oriented. They are reliable, honest and fair in all of their personal and professional dealings....."


–Betsy Donnelly & Greg Pitts


"At all times I felt that Bill Jonhson was always perusing my interests in selecting the right home as well as in my corner in advising, negotiating and closing the deal. At no time did I feel that he was rushing to put me in anything and bring the deal to closure. I met him through a listing he had posted on the internet. He devoted most of three days narrowing potential property selections and driving me over long distances to review view them....." 

–Jim Russell ~ Camdenton, MO


"I had a great experience working with Bill at Eagles Nest Realty on our recent Osage Beach condo purchase. He was readily available with any and all questions and had some great insight in making our purchase go smoothly. It was truly a pleasure to work with him and meet and work with his wife as well. They are great folks and I would recommend them without hesitation."

Home Buying Tips for Spring

Wanting to start your home search? This is a great time of year to begin looking at different homes for sale at the Lake of the Ozarks. While starting your home search is an exciting adventure, there are a few things you should keep in mind. Provided below, by Eagle's Nest Realty, are some home buying tips, for all of the eager searchers out there!


Get Pre-Approved


Pre-approval is helpful in a few different ways. First of all, it gives you - the buyer - a pretty good idea of how much you can afford in a home. This can help to keep your search within your budget. On the other hand, a pre-approval letter shows your real estate agent and home sellers that you are serious about your real estate search & do have the funds to back up your offer.

View All Options


While it is not recommended to view all homes on the market in your area, it is helpful to see all of the options that meet your home requirements and are in your budget. This can help ensure you make the right choice for you and your family, after you see all of your options. Don't limit your search to a certain number, keep looking until you find the righ place!

Keep Search Realistic


It cannot be stressed enough to look IN your price range. There is nothing worse than falling in love with a home, that you simply cannot afford. Try to keep your search realistic, when looking at homes to tour.

Pay Attention To Neighborhood


Driving by a property you are interested in, at different times of the day, can be beneficial. This can help give you a pretty good idea of the regular traffic flow and noise levels. You don't want to fall in love and purchase a home, to later find out the neighborhood is not what you imagined.

Ask About Special Fees


It's important to know about any special fees that will apply to purchasing a home. From a homeowners association fee to neighborhood assessments, inquire about any costs that will be associated with the property.

Clarify Needs & Wants


Distinguish between your wants and needs. This can help your real estate agent more accurately find the right home for you and your family. It can also help you narrow down your search!

Make Sure You LOVE It


Buying a home is a MAJOR decision and it's important that you LOVE the property you are buying. While there may be a few features you want to change and make your own, you will want to be sure you like the home overall!

Contact Eagle's Nest Realty Today!

5 Benfits of Using a Buyers Agent

It is important to have someone who has your interest in mind, when searching for a home. Buying a home at the Lake of the Ozarks is a BIG deal and we want to help make your entire experience a success. From narrowing down options to fit your wants and needs to negotiating on a potential property, your trusted real estate agents in Sunrise Beach, MO are here for you! Eagle's Nest Realty has provided some of the perks of using a buyers agent in your home search at the Lake of the Ozarks.


1. Knowledge of the Market


For experience in the real estate market at the Lake of the Ozarks, a local agent can help you with your home search. From market fluctuation to trends in housing, our agents can help share our knowledge of the local market, to give you an informed buying experience.

2. Trained Eye


Since a professional real estate agent has seen a TON of homes, they know what to look for, when showing a property. You may overlook important factors in a home, when your agent will be sure to point them out. It can be exciting to start your home search, and you can be distracted during your showing. Your agent has a trained eye and can help you see things you may not notice otherwise.

3. Local Contacts


Once you decide to make an offer, more people will become involved in your real estate transaction. Our agents have a ton of local contacts to help make your home purchase at the Lake of the Ozarks a breeze!

4. Barrier Between Parties


A buying agent can help add a filter between the buying and selling parties. This can help to avoid an awkward situation if you were to deal with the sellers directly. A voice of reason is another perk of using a buyers agent, in your real estate transaction. This helps to place a buffer between the two parties, which can be especially helpful during negotiations.

5. Negotiation Skills


A professional real estate agent has a ton of experience with negotiations. This can help give you the inside scoop, when it comes to making an offer on a property. After you make an offer, your agent will also help walk you through any counter offer or acceptance of an offer. An agent can offer alternative routes to take, as well.

Now that you have learned some of the reasons to hire a professional buyers agent, you are ready to start your home search with us! The best real estate agents in Sunrise Beach, Missouri look forward to helping you find your dream home at the Lake of the Ozarks.
