When first considering a home in the high Sierra, there are a few things to learn that owning a home in low lying areas might not teach you. Not surprisingly, these are related to snow and ice.
This photo is an extreme example and not indicative of a normal winter in Truckee/Tahoe. In fact this was taken on Donner Summit in 2017, the wettest winter on record. But it illustrates some things that as a buyer you should be thinking about that will affect the practical use and enjoyment of your home. Three of these items are driveway, roofline and the microclimate of a home. I won't go into detail here, but knowing how these affect a home will serve you well. I will help you understand these factors the first time we go out looking at homes.
Whether you are just starting to think about a move to the mountains, or are ready to put in an offer on a home, I will gladly work with your timeline. I have gone as long as 10 years working with buyers before they end up purchasing. Even if you aren't ready yet, let me help you understand the nuances of mountain properties so that you will be able to make informed judgements on homes that come across your radar online. I really enjoy meeting people who are interested in spending a part of their lives in the amazing natural beauty that surrounds us here in North Lake Tahoe and Truckee.
