Lake Tahoe is Gorgeous! I'm ready for summer! A long stretch of Lake Tahoe's eastshore is only accessible by boat or by taking a vigerous hike down to the lake. After a lengthy hike up the mountain, Lake Tahoe's eastshore is on the left. Incline Village is far below. It's Nevada!

Is a closing gift necessary?  Required?  Optional?  Do you give a gift to your buyers or sellers when you close a transaction for them?  My wife and I do.  We have done so for almost 20 years now.  We always know it is very appreciated.  We did different kinds of gifts in the beginning, home warranties, gift baskets, tickets to local events, etc.  They were all appreciated, some more than others, sometimes we knew of their appreciation, other times did not hear a word. In the past several years, we went strictly to gift baskets, buying them from a local shop and letting them make the selections.  As time progressed, we started telling the shop owner what we wanted in the basket.  Those of you who have bought baskets know you can spend a considerable amount of money and get a basket that...

We may not be in the same boat as Las Vegas or even Reno, NV, but foreclosures in Incline Village and Crystal Bay are still here.  There are many home owners (1 in 7 in the State of Nevada) that are in trouble.  If you know someone who needs help with their home, that could be facing foreclosure, let them know there are alternatives and they should speak with a qualified Real Estate Agent who knows and understands the process and can help them with a short sale.  Many people do not know that they qualify! For this weeks foreclosure update in our area, click here...

SnowFest at North Lake Tahoe March 4-13, 2011 SnowFest is one of my favorite events at Lake Tahoe. This year we're celebrating 30 years! Although it's on the California side of Northshore Lake Tahoe, it's my absolute favorite event: the Polar Bear Swim at GarWoods. It's unbelieveable that folks--guys and gals alike--are willing to jump into the frigid waters of Lake Tahoe--and swim quite a distance--for a chance to win a few dollars. The audience crowds the pier, cheering the freezing swimmers along. It's a party. It's tomorrow. Check out GarWoods in Carnelian Bay, CA. Just 9 miles from fabulous Incline Village Nevada on Tahoe's Northshore.

On March 1st a new book will be released, 'Surviving Your Serengeti' by Stefan Swanepoel.  Stefan writes of Africa and the great herds and their migrations.  He ties these amazing migrations to Sean Spencer, his wife Ashley and several others, who have been living the economic downturn at home, deciding to take a trip of a lifetime, all ending up in Africa in a safari camp together.  The story tells of the real estate crash, the loss of jobs and homes and the way the animals in Africa deal with their economic downturn that starts over every year.  Stefan goes on to relate these experiences to 7 skills to master business and life.  It's a great metaphor of life and the struggles we all have.  The question is how do you handle such twists and turns of life?  What animal are you?  Yes, it ...

NORTH LAKE TAHOE REAL ESTATE AFFECTED BY OIL PRICES.  We are watching history unfold in the Middle East at a mind-boggling pace.  Are we going to see $4.00 a gallon gasoline soon?  Probably more through other geopolitical reasons than political tensions in Egypt and the other countries in that region.  More because the world is growing fast and the demand for oil grows daily. It is impossible to ignore the potentially powerful effects of that regions political problems and how it will affect us in the USA.  The overall effect on the world economy also will feel the pressures for many reasons.  In turn so will we.  While Egyptians struggle to put together a new government, so fragile and unpredictable is their path, we on the other hand have something in the air. It is interesting to not...

Although market conditions appear to be improving in our local area of Lake Tahoe including the Incline Village and Crystal Bay neighborhoods, the race is still slow and steady towards recovery.  It is going to be some time before we see prices begin to appreciate, however, interest rates are starting to go up and buyers seem to be more aware of the market, their buying power and what that increase might mean in what they pay.  For the week of January 17-23 the following was happening inside the Incline Village MLS and Real Estate Market...
