    Technically speaking resort buyers include anyone seeking to purchase a resort property.  Would you agree?  I guess this covers everything from a one-room cottage by a lake to a hotel property on the ocean.  Decision factors that you as a buyer may consider likely will vary greatly.  Finding the right primary home involves many different perspectives and decisions.  Some are objective and others, subjective.  You're probably already acquainted with the decision process that factored your primary home purchases.  Subjective factors include the feel of the neighborhood, quality of local schools, community involvement, cultural amenities, and then there is the actual house.  These included architectural style and decor, actual amenities of the home.  There are more decisions you made, ...

            Below is the latest edition (5-13-2011) of the bank owned and short sale listings for Incline Village.  The short sale list indicates four price reductions and one new listing at 573 Knotty Pine for $380,000. The Knotty Pine listing is a great remodel opportunity sitting on a .425 acre lake view lot.  The home is a real fixer. Easy to show.  The bank owned list features one new escrow, one price reduction and one new listing. Hope you had a great weekend, stayed warm.  The Amgen bike race was cancelled for today Sunday but will run tomorrow from Squaw Valley starting at 10AM.  Sorry about the forecasted snow.      Denise Cash  775.691.3844               Ken Cash  775.691.3855 DeniseCash@TahoeLiving.com       KenCash@TahoeLiving.com                                            ...

The events of 2011 around the world have been among life's headliners.  Who could have ever guessed.  For the past few weeks our real estate market has gone from treading-water to advancing.  Decline is been non-existent or if measurable very little. There are many relevant indicators.  Nicer weather, interest rates very low, lots of inventory to select from.  Its a great time to be an American!  Although so many of the buyers in resort areas pay cash, financing options are very attractive.  Of late, local mortgage loan officers are calling, asking to come by to talk business, re-set relationships that for the past couple years have been rather remote. So as a buyer you may want to consider the phrase, "Defining Events" and take advantage of springtime at Lake Tahoe.

THE HISTORY OF INCLINE VILLAGE: Once upon a time, there was a lovely azure blue lake surrounded by lush forest.  Mark Twain remarked that "surely this is the finest view the world affords."  Lake Tahoe's residents were the Indians who lived and fished along its shores.  As time passed and civilization moved west, settlers paused in the passes to the North and South to marvel at the color and clarity of this magnificent body of water.  Incline Village slept through the lakes early development as the centers of activity in those early days sprang up at South Lake Tahoe, Glenbrook, and Tahoe City. In the mid-1800's lumber interests discovered the Nevada North Shore as an excellent source of timber for the Washoe mines and at that point began the methodical logging of the area that we know ...

That is the question.  Do they or do they not?  I first need to understand what a home protection plan is.  So I called my local warranty rep, ask to meet with him to discuss this question.  I was told a home protection plan is a service contract that covers the repair or replacement of many of the most frequently occurring breakdowns of a homes systems and components including appliances.  OK, that was pretty straight forward I though! But I wondered why a home protection plans is needed.  After all, the place will have a home inspection and other reports done.  But the these inspection will not tell my buyer if something is going to fail the day escrow closes or a week or for that, many months from now.  So what this plan is doing is helping keep the strain of unexpected repairs or re...

OK...  I have read the book Your Serengeti, 7 Skills to Master Business and Life" by Stefan Swanepoel.  A great book, well worth reading.  It doesn't matter if you are a Broker or an agent.  There is something in there for you.  And it is a good story too.  This book is so good and I can see my business partner in there with his mistakes, attitudes and stress, that I have given him a copy too.  It is a must read..   Surviving Your Serengeti has 7 questions. Are your experiencing a challenge that you wish to overcome? Do you want to discover your hidden survival skills? Do you have a goal you have yet to achieve? Would you like to discover your instinctive strengths? Can you benefit from problem-solving thinking? Do you know someone who has potential to excel? Are you looking for a posit...

If you have been looking for the best deals on a new home in Lake Tahoe, Nevada or California, and the best rates on home financing, you have no doubt noticed just how difficult it has become.  Every trend I read has a short life.  By the time I read it, it is old news and things have changed, again.  I just finished the latest short sale and foreclosure lists for this past week in Incline Village, Nevada.  If you would like to see this list, send me a note and I will email it to you. For this market, fortunately the changes are not large.  We now are beginning to believe in the "bottom has been reached" idea.  Prices are settling, buyers are starting to visit after one of the best winters for snow we have had in years.  A move up or down right now doesn't have the same effect that it d...

IS the Incline Village Foreclosure Market for Real Estate HOT or COLD???  It's definitely nothing compared to neighboring Reno, NV or Southern NV's Las Vegas, but it appears to be heating up again!  Properties are just recently going to auction again, coming back in the form of REO-Real Estate Owned or Bank Owned and even being sold Short before formally going to auction. This week, the list is heating up...here are the details!

I just returned from an incredible vacation in Arizona.  Denise and I watched some Spring Training Baseball in Scottsdale, had some great lunches and dinners.  Enjoyed the beauty of Sedona and Lake Havasu.  Infact enjoyed the beauty of the desert.  We did not miss the massive amounts of snow we have received this year and it was nice to not shovel snow almost everyday.  Yet when we returned home, we are reminded of just how beautiful and special Lake Tahoe is. If you have ever been to Lake Tahoe then you know what I speak of.  If you have not been here, then you really must come.  Summer or Winter, it is incredible.  Whatever your interest are, it is here. Either way, take a look at the new video we had done on our website.  Just click on the links above....  Please......Enjoy. You can ...
