Time to Think Land!

During the downturn, land was not selling.  Here is my personal sales volume OF LAND over the past few years:

2012 - ZERO
2013 - ZERO
2014 - (1) Ten acre parcel
2015 - (2) golf course lots, (1) 20 acre parcel, (1) 7 acre lot, (1) 10 acre lot

When times get rough, land is the first thing to get dumped because if you think about it, land costs to carry in the form of property taxes, maintenance, possible insurance.  Land has been at bargain prices for some time as available inventory exceeded demand.  The savvy investors recognized this and have cherry picked the best lots at the best prices.  The bargains are drying up here in El Dorado County and Placer counties so if you have been thinking about buying into a quickly disappearing natural resource then you should act quickly.

I've still got a few great deals available like this 5 acres in the heart of Cameron Park with valley views, utilities to the site and quick access to HWY 50.  Ventana Lane is listed for $179,000!



Or how about nearly 32 acres in Shingle Springs with 360 degree views of the Sierra's and Sacramento Valley.  Fully fenced and a capped well.  Price available upon request.





I also have 7 acres on Sisson Lane in Auburn with a brand new 30 gal/min well listed at $229,000. Land is flat and usable and would be great for horses.  Perc and mantle complete.


If you have been thinking about buying land, don't wait!  Call me today at 530-391-1574.

Snowshoeing In The In-Between Season

It's not spring, so I'm not catching the end of the ski season, working in my garden and enjoying the longer warmer days.  It's not summer, so my biking, kayaking, swimming and hiking adventures have been scaled back.  It's not quite winter yet so I'm not spending all of my free time skiing.   So what do I do to get outdoors and stay active?  Snowshoeing of course.  You can do it just about anywhere and for as long as you want.  After the last couple of storms, there is plenty of snow so get out and experience the brisk air and a heart thumping workout at the same time.

On Sunday we ventured to Sierra at Tahoe to see what we could find.  It's the perfect place in the early season.  The runs hold the snow nicely and you will have it to yourselves, (for the only time in winter).



Today being Veteran's Day, I am headed out again.  With fresh powder and a weekday holiday there is nothing stopping any of you from re energizing your spirit and taking advantage of a clear crisp day in the mountains.  It's a prescription for anything that ails you and I guarantee you will feel terrific afterwards!  Better yet, according to MyFitnessPal, snowshoeing burns 489 calories an hour!!

Bring snow shoes, trekking poles (optional), and dress in layers because you will be peeling them off.  Don't forget to carry plenty of water!
