Lake Tahoe Up In Smoke!

by Lakeshore Realty

If you were in the Tahoe Basin today, chances are you noticed that things were a bit... hazy today. The above photo was taken at 4 pm from the lookout on Mt. Rose highway. Smoke from several Southern California wildfires have completely obscured the West and South shores of Lake Tahoe, making it look more like an ocean than a lake. Depending on the winds, the smoke can get trapped in the Basin and linger for days on end. With a little luck and a lot of help from fire crews, the smoke should pass in a few days. For now, avoid heavy outdoor exercise and keep your doors and windows closed until the it clears!

Cost of Renting vs Owning a house in Nevada and California

by Lakeshore Realty

Renting vs. buying a home in Nevada:

Monthly rent in Nevada: $1,275

Monthly mortgage in Nevada: $1,196

The median rent in Nevada has risen 6.25 percent from $1,200 in May 2015 to $1,275 in May 2016, according to Zillow data. In fact, Reno is among the top 10 U.S. cities with the fastest-growing rents, up 6.5 percent since June 2015, according to the July 2016 National Apartment List Rent Report. Rising rents in the state make renting a more expensive option than buying a home.


Renting vs. buying a home in California:

Monthly rent in California: $2,400

Monthly mortgage in California: $2,221

Three of the top five most expensive rental markets in the U.S. are in California: San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose, according to the Zumper National Rent Report. And another three cities in the state, including Los Angeles and San Diego, are among the top 25 highest-priced rental markets.

Living with a roommate in California’s pricey rental markets can be a way to keep costs down — especially in cities like San Francisco and Los Angeles where it's a growing trend, said Gudell of Zillow.

6 Ways To Get A Head Start On 2017 Home Trends

by Lakeshore Realty

Looking to remodel, renovate, or design a new Tahoe home? You probably want to make sure you're on the forefront of modern trends. These 6 items and features will give you a head start on 2017, ensuring that your home is the chicest one on the block.

1. Bar carts

Metal, wood, glass, acrylic, painted, gilded, square, round, on wheels and off…bar cars come in so many options it's head-spinning. You can find one to match any style of décor and in any price range, from super affordable versions you can pick up when you're buying a pair of flip flops and a bag of dog food at Target to some that you can buy instead of taking a luxury vacation.

But one thing is certain: they're hot! Elle Décor calls bar carts "practical, portable, and eminently stylish pieces (that) are sure to get the party rolling." And we agree!


2. Playful and passionate pink

Pink has made it out of the girls' bedroom. Trends for 2017 are showing shocking swaths of pink as wall color, on furniture pieces, and as stylish accessories. A few licks of this bright, happy hue can instantly update a space and make it feel fun, fresh, and fabulous.


3. Mixed Metals

We haven't seen the end of the metal trend, but a few new twists are making metal feel even fresher now. "

"We're seeing brass and gold still, but also polished nickel and silver coming back, and there's a new metal finish - white plaster," said designer Marie Flanigan in Houstonia magazine. As a Style Spotter at High Point Market, the largest show of furniture in the world, Flanigan had an opportunity to see the newest trends firsthand. "I saw a lot of light fixtures in white; it's that very organic finish, as well as beds and chairs made out of it."


4. Luxury appliances

Kitchens today are increasingly combining sleek surfaces with commercial functionality, and that trend isn't ending anytime soon. If you're building or remodeling, some emphasis in this area will not only give you an upscale, modern look, but also make the home desirable to buyers when you go to sell.

One to watch: The True 42 refrigerator from commercial appliance manufacturer True Residential. From their new luxury home line, this fridge brings a restaurant look in stainless steel or slate pearl "with an automotive-grade paint application (that) raises the bar on traditional kitchen appliance offerings," said A Light Reflection.

5. The return of cork

Over the look of reclaimed wood on the walls? Take it up a notch, with cork.

"Cork is making a comeback! Cork adds warmth and texture to any home, it's also a great way to absorb noise in luxurious open plan homes," said Barry Estates.


6. Deep, rich colors

Not a fan of those light pastels that Pantone chose as the colors of the year? Go dark. But instead of the blue hues we've been seeing for a few years, veer next door on the color wheel.

Updated Tudor

"2017 is the year we wave goodbye to navy blues and midnights, because dark shades of green are one of the hottest new trends to come," said Barry Estates. "Dark greens add depth when used as accent pieces, especially among tan leather, brass and natural linens."

Martis Valley Development

by Lakeshore Realty

Developers for a specific plan north of Lake Tahoe are confident in getting final approval from Placer County supervisors later this summer.

That confidence, though, comes after the county’s planning commission recommended denying Martis Valley West earlier this month. Commissioners cited concerns about traffic and evacuation plans in the 5-2 vote.

Blake Riva, managing partner for Martis Valley West developer Mountainside Partners, said in an emailed statement Tuesday that the project is a good one.

“The Martis Valley West Project reflects a truly unique combined conservation and development plan that relocates future development to an area adjacent to existing development, significantly reduces the amount of allowable development and serves to complete a remarkable conservation vision,” he said. “We believe the project should be approved based on its merits.”

Martis Valley West would have 760 homes and 6.6 acres of commercial development to serve those homes on land west of Highway 267 and near Northstar Village. Last fall, Mountainside Partners announced an agreement with conservation activists to drop another 600 homes from the plan and preserve 6,376 acres east of 267 from development.

But the project still had opponents. County planning commissioners continued a hearing in June on the project after they were persuaded by opponents that some matters needed further study and review. The 5-2 vote against the project and its final environmental impact report was on July 7.

County officials have not yet set a date for county supervisors to vote on Martis Valley West and its EIR. Recommendations from the planning commission are given weight but are not binding on supervisors.
