What a spectacular Fall we are having. Already a couple of snowy days, mostly melted away here in TD but the surrounding peaks look like winter. Good to have a fire blazing away in the evenings, the mornings are frosty and the days mild.
There is a doe and 2 fawns that live in the woods in back of our house. We watched them grow up from tiny spotted wobbly legged babies to the young adults they are now. Back in the summer, on the really warm days the spotted fawns would play in our yard sprinklers like children – dashing into the spray and dashing out, shake themselves, repeat. Nowadays we see the 3 of them on a regular basis in the morning, walking up our street then cutting through our yard to the back woods. It is like a commute we can count on seeing daily in the early hours.
And our Stellar Jays show up every morning for peanuts, all puffed up against the cold, tiny jets of steam from their beaks as they breathe.
The RE market here in TD remains healthy, with the average sold price up almost 13% above YTD last year. There is only 1 bank owned property on the market (on Northwoods – no surprise) no short sales.
The market trend in Tahoe Donner will be mirrored throughout the region within a few percentage points.

Below is a link to all TD homes available, call or email me with any questions. Also, let me know if you have finalized any dates you plan to be here to look at property so I can schedule you in.
While I am partial to Tahoe Donner it’s where I have lived for decades, there are other nice areas in the region – let me know if you want information on any other area. I have sold listings at all the resort areas around Lake Tahoe including Sugar Bowl, Northstar, Alpine, Squaw Valley & Homewood, then Donner Lake and some of the newer developments in Truckee and in Martis Camp. Schaffers Mill and Old Greenwood.
While there is still a lot of debate about the nutritional value as well as the safety of genetically modified foods, and the attractiveness of organically and conventionally grown
fruits and vegetables you can take charge of what you eat!
The Heirloom Gardener magazine for the Fall of 2013 reports on page 6 that PLU codes on produce identify the various ways produce is grown (original article from Prevention Magazine, June 2013).
They report conventional produce uses a 4 digit number starting with a 3 or 4, organic produce uses a 5 digit number starting with a 9, and genetically modified produce uses a 5 digit number starting with an 8.
