Low elevation pieces of Incline Village real estate have always been in demand. The proximity to the beach, shopping, restaurants and recreational amenities make these properties highly desirable. It’s getting more and more difficult to find a three-bedroom condo under $1 million close to the beach. But this week 825 Southwood Blvd. – #11 is on our radar screen.
This tastefully updated three-bedroom, 2 bath, 1200 square-foot condo is priced at $730,000. There is even a pellet stove which is a great way to heat the condo without breaking the bank. Properties in this complex make great rental units! Definitely worth a look before it disappears.
During the past week 6 properties went into escrow ranging in price from $950,000 up to $3,250,000. We are not seeing much movement in the inventory level. It seems that almost every week the number of properties going into escrow is fairly similar to the number of new listings. This will likely change in the near future as more properties hit the Incline Village real estate market. But for the time being buyers need to act like tigers and pounce when they see a property they like.
Now onto a topic that is completely unrelated to Incline Village real estate. Longtime readers of this blog will remember that Don had a very special cat named Spumoni. May 10th will mark the 16th anniversary of the passing of Spumoni.
Since Don does not have any heirs, he is planning to leave his estate in memory of Spumoni to provide scholarships for feline Vet Med students at UC Davis. This year on May 10th there will be a dedication ceremony at the UCD Vet Med School to honor Spumoni’s memory. What makes this event so special is that Don donated a statue of Spumoni which has been installed at the entrance to the Vet Med school. The statue is identical to the one in Spumoni Circle (aka the Incline Village Roundabout) that was sculpted by June Towhill Brown.
