"The Week in Review" - 1/29/17

The clearing of the skies and bluebird days summed up this week around Lake Tahoe. The snow removal companies around Incline Village were able to get some much needed catching up done and the roads are finally starting to melt off in town. We've been seeing many homeowners choose to contract snow removal companies to shovel off their roofs as a preventative measure. A good indicator of whether or not the snow is too heavy for your home's structure is to open all exterior doors one-by-one and ensure they all open smoothly without feeling like they are extra tight or hard to get open. If any exterior door is hard to open this is a surefire sign that the heavy snow on the roof is causing stress on supporting beams. If you do choose to contract a snow removal company to shovel off your roof, always be sure to have them sign a waiver of liability; climbing on a roof is dangerous, climbing on a snow and ice covered roof is even more dangerous. 

This week in the Incline Village real estate market we saw 1 new single-family home have an accepted offer and 2 single-family homes close escrow ranging in price from $751,800 - $870,000 . We also saw 1 new freestanding condo come on the market, 101 Red Cedar Dr. Unit #16 in the Crystal bay Palisades, listed for $1,099,000. Finally we saw 1 freestanding condo close escrow for $1,330,000.

In the Incline Village condo market we saw 1 new property come onto the market, Unit #134 in the Bitterbrush complex on the upper-side with no lakeview, but with great mountain views of Diamond Peak for $459,500. This week we have also seen 4 new condos enter into escrow ranging in price from $309,000 for a Mountain Shadows unit to $525,000 for a McCloud unit near the beach. Finally, we saw 3 condos close escrow this week ranging from a $277,000 for a 2/1 in Incline Manor to $485,000 for a Royal Pines unit. 

As always, I wish everyone a successful week filled with happiness, health and wealth. Check back next Sunday, February 5th, for the next Week in Review.
