Blue Plate Special

May 29, 2009


Two awesome opportunities just hit the MLS.  If you have been waiting for a 3BR McCloud or 3rd Creek unit to go below 700k do not miss out on this one!  A 3br McCloud just reduced their price to $699,000, this seller wants to sell (947 Incline Way #161)! As we know the spread between the 2BRs and 3BRs has been big.   At this price point, this should get things moving.  Excellent end unit location, close to Rec Center and Village Green.  Offered furnished and nicely I might add! 


Unit #84 at Third Creek has a bedroom and full bath on the lower level.  Seller has updated the kitchen and converted the appliances to gas!  Lovely step out to level common area.  Lot’s of upgrades!  Located on the Northwood side (outside the gate) for $698,800.  This should shake things up with the other 3BR owners currently on the market.

30 Somers Loop Glass stairs are famous,Crystal Bay,Nevada!

May 29, 2009

Did anyone see Law and Order Criminal Intent last night? Well Megan did….and guess what the U.S attorney on the program was standing on “floating glass stairs” similar to  or .


These amazingly beautiful glass stairs are engineered double lamination safety glass,non slip and 1 and 1/8 inch textures.This home is a must see for your contemporary buyer’s. Essentially the Builder spent alot of attention to detail and dollars on magnificent appointments that will be appreciated by the most sophistocated buyer looking for that  New York or San Francisco”loft”appeal.The difference is that this home is tucked into one of the oldest neighborhoods on the Nevada side of the North Shore of Lake Tahoe.

You can lie on the couch and get peeks of the Lake,mountains and  be miles away from reality.

A few other  notable details,are one of the biggest showers I have ever seen,a steam shower at that.

Also this property has a top to bottom ELEVATOR…..we all know tha BabyBoomers want this.You do not see this ammenity in many homes in this price point.

So,if you have been looking for that perfect “cool” one of a kind luxury home at the Lake, do not wait another day.

Summer Best Buys in Incline Village

May 28, 2009

23 Homes have closed since the beginning of January 2009,8 homes below 1 million,and 12 over $2 million……interesting mix.What we are seeing are the value buyers that are snapping up the short sales and foreclosures,or the new construction mega homes,at a considerable discount.

Views and value,are the main theme we emphasize with our client buyers.Purchasing a great location or a superior view will always be a best bet for resale,and demand.Purchasing an inferior location at a great price, may offer short term rewards even with short sales and bank owned,but the better location or view will always prevail in the long term.

The short sale,if you are not in a hurry,and work with with an experienced  educated short sale agent .(and experienced does not necessarily mean senior )Debbie Hansen on our team has put together several transactions recently for our client buyers  successfully on both short sales and bank owned properties. Below is a link on shortsales:

The condo market continues to lag with an inventory that has moves little since the first of the year.There are many great locations and values,even on the Incline lakefront.Prices are not steals,but fabulous locations with water amenities.
