Ice Cream Shops - Capital Region, NY - CB Prime Properties

You scream, I scream, we all scream for ice cream! 

Nothing says summer fun like a sweet treat from a local ice cream shop. When it comes to choosing flavors, do you prefer the standard chocolate and vanilla, or are you more of an adventurous type? The debate rages on among many of our real estate agents!

Those who like to live life on the edge have discovered some great local vendors who carry creative ice cream flavors. National Creative Flavors Ice Cream Day is coming up soon, so now is a great time to start exploring some of these local favorites.

Fly Fishing - Catskill Region - CB Prime Properties

This month offers some of the greatest fishing opportunities of the year in the Catskills region. With dozens of clear mountain lakes and seemingly endless river and stream miles, the Catskills are a genuine paradise for New York fly fishermen. 

National Go Fishing Day is coming right up on June 18th, and New York's Free Fishing Weekend is just a week later on the 27th and 28th. The latter are some of the only dates of the year you can hit the water in New York without a fishing license. If you're in the mood for a fly fishing adventure this June, be sure to check out some of our real estate agents' favorite fishing destinations in the Catskill Mountains.

  • Beaverkill River - Roscoe, NY 12776
    The Catskills are often credited as the birthplace of North American fly fishing, and the Beaverkill River is one of the streams in this region that's been challenging anglers for centuries. To test your own fly-fishing skills, head to the tiny village of Roscoe, nicknamed "Trout Town, USA." This is where the Beaverkill and Willowemoc meet at a legendary confluence known to local fly fishers as Junction Pool. You'll find ample riverbank access in town, as well as several excellent fly shops and outfitters just footsteps from these lovely Roscoe homes for sale.

Remodeling ROI - Sell a Home - CB Prime Properties

Planning to put your house on the market this year? Sprucing up your home can help it stand out from the many beautiful Albany homes for sale. But before you embark on any remodeling project, you need to plan and be wise with your cash. The fact is, few remodeling projects increase the value of your home enough for you to realize a profit or recoup the entire remodeling cost when the house is sold. So, you want to be certain you're investing in upgrades that will maximize the return on investment (ROI). Here are some industry rules of thumb that our real estate agents want you to know before committing to a project.

  • Consider the Market Trends
    Renovations done to make your home more appealing to buyers do not have to align with your tastes. Buyers' expectations have risen thanks to the influence of home remodeling and buying TV shows. You need to keep your eye on what's working for others. For instance, homebuyers are hot on farmhouse kitchen sinks that are deeper than traditional ones. Also trending are modern bathrooms, new garage doors, and water-conserving landscaping.

Fire Pit Safety Tips - CB Prime Properties

Summer is just a few short days away. Our real estate agents understand that you are eager to get outside and enjoy some fresh air and relaxing evenings around the fire. We're right there with you, and we want you to have a fun, enjoyable, and safe time. While fire pits are pleasant additions to any backyard, it's essential to follow these safety tips to ensure that your relaxing evening doesn't end with a trip to an emergency room.

  • Watch what you burn. Don't burn pressure-treated wood, plastics, or garbage in the fire pit. These contain toxic chemicals that can lead to respiratory problems, cancers, and a host of unpleasant side effects.
