The Great Reno Balloon Race, Sept 7-9

by Lakeshore Realty

The Great Reno Balloon Race is the largest free hot air ballooning event in the Nation. During three days in early September, you can look up into the Reno skies and see a rainbow of hot air balloons soaring about. From its humble beginnings in 1982 with just 20 balloons, The Great Reno Balloon Race has taken flight with more than 100 balloons each year. Taking place just a few miles north of downtown Reno, the event enchants both young and old with its vibrant colors and inspiring music. The Balloon Race has won many awards over the years including 'Best Special Event in Reno' and 'Best Special Event in Northern Nevada.' With an average of 150,000 spectators attending the event each year, the number of lives touched by the beautiful spectacle continues to rise just like the balloons themselves.

Oh, so that's where they were!

by Lakeshore Realty

At times my job seems to take on a mind of its own and this photo says it all.

Oh, so that's where they were!

As a Realtor I wear many hats from listing agent, negotiations and getting homes ready to be put on the market. I take this very personally because my goal is to sell the house so my sellers can move forward with their lives. In doing so the majority of homes need some staging, be it outside to improve curve appeal or inside to turn a personal home into a home someone else can view themselves living in.

Yesterday in my preparation to get a listing at 494 Country Club ready for the brokers’ open house tour, I slipped off my shoes to make my one too many trips up the stairs easier.

The problem I encountered was discovered as I reached Reno to pick up a few more items for tour, that I had in fact left my shoes on the stairs and there I was barefoot in the heat! I did what any red blooded creative woman would do... head straight for Macy's and sneak in the side door, dodge through various sportswear, and go straight to the shoe dept where of course being barefoot is quite reasonable... at least I thought so. Snagged a pair of sandals on sale and off to Home Depot and Lowes I went! The sales lady did seemed a little surprised at my request to keep the box as I was wearing them out but hey, I had a busy day!

The tour went great and the new shoes aren't bad either. I now carry a second pair in back just in case the brain moves faster than my feet!

It’s time to “HOPE” again….HopeFest 2012 is just around the corner, on Friday, September 7 at the Carson Tahoe Cancer Center! This annual benefit concert is one of the biggest game changers for people in our area, because 100% of the money raised directly supports local cancer patients in need.

HopeFest 2012 - Friday, September 11th

Upon receiving a life threatening cancer diagnosis, you would think that a patient and their family could focus on healing. Unfortunately, for many in our community, in addition to the stress of the disease, they also have to deal with an accompanying financial crisis. As a result, people need help with basic things like gas to get to treatment, a place to stay for extended care, a helping hand with insurance co-pays…

That’s why we do HopeFest.

Thanks to the generosity of our two awesome musical groups Mo5aic and The Cutters, our food and drink sponsors, Firkin & Fox and High Sierra Brewing Company and Dick Campagni—who is offering $10,000 in cash or a new car for the HopeFest raffle—you can come, have fun AND make a real difference in the lives of local cancer patients.

Cancer is tough enough. Please help us lighten the financial burden of these patients. Last year we raised $37,000 and due to dramatically increased local need, our goal this year is $100,000. Come for a rockin’ good time, a hand-crafted beer or glass of wine, a chance to win a new car, and (if you can) add a donation to the HopeChest.

Bring your family, friends, neighbors (and lawn chair) to this FREE admission concert, and have a blast while supporting your community.

Come because you care. Party like you don’t.

For more information please call 775.445.5161 or visit CarsonTahoe.org

The Incline Elementary School PTA is trying to win a grant from Raley's to support our new science, technology and outdoor education lab program. The grant is for $10,000, and this amount would allow us to continue the program into the 2013/14 school year or enhance the program that we have planned for this year.

Please encourage people at your schools and in the community to vote for IES PTA on Raley's Reach. These funds can make a big difference in the Science and the Technology education of Incline Elementary Students. We can not make this happen without the help of the entire Incline Community.

We are competing against only 10 other schools in Nevada for this money, IES PTA has a very good chance of winning this grant. We are currently in 5th place with 15 votes while the 1st place school has 43 votes. Please help us get to 1st place and help us to stay there. Encourage People to vote once a day until Friday August 31, 2012. This is a very short time to earn an amount of money that can make a significant difference for IES students. 

Support the Incline Elementary School new science, technology and outdoor education lab program.

Price your house to sell quickly

by Lakeshore Realty

If home lacks features of recent comps, it's time to subtract value

From Inman News

A first-quarter survey of homebuyers and sellers done by HomeGain.com, a real estate services website, revealed that 76 percent of homeowners believe their home is worth more than the list price recommended by their real estate agent.

Homebuyers usually have a better grasp of current market value in the area where they're looking to buy than do sellers who own and live there. Buyers look at a lot of new listings. They make offers, know what sells quickly and for how much, and what doesn't and why. HomeGain reported that homebuyers still think sellers are overpricing their homes.

Your home is worth what a buyer will pay for it given current market conditions. This may not be the same as your opinion of what your home will sell for, or what you hope it's worth. Relying on emotion rather than logic when selecting a list price can lead to disappointing results.

The prime opportunity for selling a home is when it's new on the market. This is when it is most marketable. Buyers wait for the new listings. Usually, listings receive the most showings and have the busiest open houses during the first couple of weeks they are on the market.

This is the opportunity to show your house off to advantage with a list price that attracts buyers' attention. Listings that sell today are priced right for the market. Buyers need to feel comfortable that they are getting a good deal.

Buyers won't overpay if they feel home prices are still declining, and in some areas of the country, they still are. In areas of strong sales, buyers may shy away from multiple-offer situations if they feel the recovery is fragile and that prices may slide further before stabilizing. Even in areas where home sales have been strong in the first half of 2012, local practitioners wonder how long the uptick will last.

HOUSE HUNTING TIP: When selecting a list price, it helps to understand how real estate agents and appraisers establish an expected selling price or price range for your home. They research the recent listing inventory for homes similar to yours that sold. The most recent sales give the best indication of the direction of the market.

They analyze these comparable sales giving more value to your home for attributes that it has that the comparables don't, like a remodeled kitchen. Value is subtracted from your home for features it lacks when compared to the sold comparables, like an easily accessible, level backyard.

Price your house to sell quickly

It's difficult for sellers to step back and take an attitude of detached interest in their home. But it's essential to do so if you want to sell successfully in this market. For example, your home could actually sell for less, not more, than a comparable sale because you added a swimming pool in an area where most homebuyers would rather have a yard with a generous lawn.

If the comparable sale information suggests that the value of homes like yours is declining, select a list price that undercuts the competition to drive buyers -- and hopefully offers -- to your home. You can take a more aggressive stance on pricing if the comparables show that prices are moving up.

If there is high demand for homes like yours, you may receive more than one offer. But don't list too high. It's better to stay in the range shown by the comparables and expose the house to the market before accepting offers. The market will drive the price up if it's warranted.

THE CLOSING: Don't rely on rumors circulating in the neighborhood about how high a home sold. Prices tend to get inflated when passed from one person to another. Select your list price based on hard facts.
