Summer Hiking  - Klamath Falls, OR - Fisher Nicholson

There's never a bad time to explore the expansive natural scenery around Klamath Falls, but the summer months provide an excellent opportunity to explore some of the area's more elevated mountain trails. Fortunately, you don't have to travel far to find beautiful views in Klamath Falls. Our real estate agents have details on five elevated trails around Klamath Falls.

  1. Hogback Mountain Trail – Klamath Falls, OR 97603
    Though a large part of Hogback Mountain is privately owned, many areas, including the Hogback Mountain Trail, are open to hikers. The Hogback Mountain Trail is a 3.5-mile, out-and-back trail that presents a significant challenge and rewards your efforts with spectacular views. With over 1,700 feet of elevation over just 3.5 miles of trail, this is one of the steeper trails on the list, so be aware while traversing some of the more challenging sections.

Attracting Hummingbirds - Homeowners - Fisher Nicholson Realty

House-hunters looking at Klamath Falls homes for sale are often attracted by the beautiful landscaping. Colorful butterflies visit the lovely flowers that adorn the properties. But some houses attract certain entertaining guests more than others. Our real estate agents have collected a few tips to invite hummingbirds into your yard.

  1. Add a splash of red
    Hummingbirds adore red. It is their favorite color, hands down. But they also love bright purple, orange, and pink. Trumpet-shaped flowers that hold generous portions of nectar also beckon the birds to come to partake of the sweetness. Consider Oregon Firestorm, cloudburst phlox, fuchsia, and nasturtiums to bring a riot of color to your landscaping, and the birds will follow. Many people find that adding streamers of red ribbon to bushes and trees will bring more birds.

Clean Before You Move - Selling a Home - Fisher Nicholson Realty

When you're preparing to leave a property, you want to ensure that it's clean for the new buyers. Considering most home sellers also move into a new property that they need to clean and organize, cleaning two homes feels a little overwhelming. Our real estate agents suggest following these tips to assist with the cleaning process. 

  • Clean and Pack as Many Items as Possible Before Cleaning the Property
    When you're adding your home to the inventory of Klamath Falls homes for sale, you should work on decluttering all its spaces so it looks more appealing to potential homebuyers. It's also easier to clean a space with fewer items, and you'll have less furniture and decorative items to move.

Adding a Retaining Wall - Homeowners - Fisher Nicholson Realty

If you've been looking at some of our gorgeous Klamath Falls homes for sale, you have surely seen some properties that have been beautifully enhanced by retaining walls. Homeowners often ask us whether or not it is a good idea to build a retaining wall on their property. Our real estate agents know that is not a simple yes or no question. There are several issues you should consider before determining your best option.

  • Aesthetics
    A retaining wall can add significant curb appeal by skillfully sculpting the space. The well-constructed wall is attractive in its own right. With a wealth of available materials such as stone, brick, wood, and concrete, you can indulge your creativity in designing the perfect landscape. Unfortunately, the wall loses that appeal if it blocks a beautiful view. You will also want to give careful consideration to the materials you select. Concrete is by far the most durable option, but brick or stone may be more pleasing to the eye. Fortunately, you can enhance the concrete for a more aesthetically pleasing appearance.
