The weather has been great this summer; wonderful for hiking, biking, fishing, golfing, barbecuing, boating and attending an endless supply of concerts!  River rafting was very popular this year with months of perfect floating conditions and accommodating weather, except for the thunder storms directly overhead a week ago!

Looking for activities for the rest of the season, here is Squaw’s calendar link for September:  http://www.squaw.com/things-to-do/events-calendar?month=2012-09  This weekend is Labor Day Weekend with tons of activities, concerts, the 23rd annual Foamfest and the Alpen Wine Fest!  Starting August 29th and going through Labor Day is also the Annual Rib Cook-off in Sparks, here’s that link!   http://www.nuggetribcookoff.com/

Real estate sales this summer have been better with sellers needing to sell eventually lowering their list prices or accepting lower offers to be more in line with the current market.  It’s understandably difficult for sellers to accept less for their property when just a few years ago it was worth thirty percent more.  Values are appreciating, albeit very slowly; it will take many years to get back to where values were in 2008.

The Squaw Valley Lodge offers comfortable accommodations in a relaxed atmosphere in the best location!  Come see us to see why the SV Lodge is so special!  We have comfortable deluxe studios with a variety of views, top floor studio-lofts with views of KT-22 or Shirley Canyon, a top floor two-bedroom lock-off unit with fireplace, laundry, and outside decks!  We also have our largest two-bedroom floor plan available in great condition and with much more privacy.   What’s your ideal floor plan?  Come see us next to the Squaw Valley Lodge front desk or give us a call today!  Of course all of the properties in Squaw Valley and beyond can be seen at our popular website, here’s our link: www.squawvalleyrealestate.com

Between Bob and I, we have over 47 years of real estate transaction experience!  Whether buying or selling you can trust we have your interest at heart. This year we’ve not only represented sellers and buyers in Squaw Valley and the SV Lodge but also represented clients in Truckee and around the lake.  Our crowning achievement this year was representing wonderful buyers of a stunning Lake Tahoe Lakefront.  It took months of negotiating but the result was worth it!

We hope you enjoy the remainder of the summer as we head toward another fantastic fall season. Have a relaxing or invigorating Labor Day weekend!

We’ll see you soon in the outdoors!
