With a delightful surprise snowstorm gracing us this week, the prospect of a white Christmas is now in our sights. Originally predicted as rain up to 9,000 feet, the storm took an unexpected turn, starting with a wet and heavy downpour and concluding with a picturesque blanket of 6+ inches of snow in the higher elevations. The period from Christmas to New Year's is always bustling in Incline Village, especially when we're blessed with snow. Currently, there's a surplus of short-term rentals available, and the recent snowfall might just be the nudge needed to fill those spaces for Christmas week.
As we anticipate the holiday week in Incline Village and Crystal Bay, the real estate buzz remains a steady backdrop. In the recent week, the scene witnessed the unveiling of 7 New Listings, 6 in Escrow, 2 Price Reductions, and 4 Closings —timed perfectly for the festive season.
Among the noteworthy additions to the market is the impeccable 997 Dorcey Drive. This home boasts meticulous remodeling and stands poised for a new owner. The attention to detail in finish work and material selection is unmatched, especially within this price range. Offering single-level living, a spacious master bedroom, well-proportioned guest bedrooms, privacy, a new roof, fresh paint, and a completed oversized 3-car garage, it's conveniently situated near hiking, biking, and snowshoeing trails.
Another gem still available, now with a reduced price, is 711 Cristina Drive. This residence exudes a quality of design that's a rarity in Incline. Nestled beautifully on the lower portion of the Eastern Slope, it enjoys an exceptionally private setting and offers breathtaking views of open forest service lots.
As the snow blankets our community, transforming Incline Village into a winter wonderland, we embrace the enchantment of the season. With the real estate market humming along, presenting new possibilities for both buyers and sellers, we look forward to a week filled with warmth, festivities, and perhaps a touch of home searching amid the snowflakes. From the magic of fresh listings to the joy of closings, the holiday spirit intertwines with our local real estate narrative. To everyone in our cherished mountain community, may your Christmas week be filled with laughter, moments of serenity, and the company of loved ones. Wishing you a very merry Christmas and a joyous holiday season!
