I can’t believe it. We just went out in our front yard and there is snow on the lawn and the cars! Last time I lived some place where it snowed I was in college. What fun!!
I went on another beautiful hike yesterday. Seven of us from the Del Webb Sierra Canyon Hiking Group did the Marlette Lake Trail. According to the guide book it is a 9 mile round trip hike. It was a relatively easy hike. The trail starts at Spooner Lake which is one mile north of highway 50 on highway 28, the highway that goes around the east side of Lake Tahoe. There were lots of Aspen trees along the trail. They were just beginning to turn yellow. A few more weeks and they should be stunning. It was a beautiful day and a great day to be in the mountains.
We picked a really bad time to try to sell our house. Sales of existing homes fell 4.3% nationwide in August and
San Francisco Bay Area house and condominium sales fell 25% to the lowest for an August in 15 years. I think our house is a great examples of the slump. We have priced it very competitively at more than 10% less than what similar houses were selling for a year ago but our agent says that nobody is even looking right now. It sure seems like a great time for someone to get a great deal. I am not worried because I know that in the long run it will sell and even at these lower prices we will still make a nice profit but still…..
You can see pictures of the house on our listing. We were down in the bay area Tuesday to see family
and do some yard work at the house.
