Fall Festivities in Placer County

Finally Fall Season is here. So what are the traditional activities that the locals of Placer County enjoy. The Sierra Lifestyle Team is here as not only your local connection to the Real Estate market but to the local lifestyle. So here’s a brief run down of the Fall festivities that are not to be missed.

As the Auburn fair has come and gone there are many events still to attend for quality family fun.  The Forresthill heritage festival is coming up. Our close neighbors across the bridge enjoy a day full of history with many long standing traditions that include, a logging completion, a chili cook off and a good old fashioned pig roast. The center of attention for this festival is the the time old tradition of gold panning. A highly recommended experience for the whole family.

Also coming to town is the Auburn Spirits and Wine festival. This exquisite event features numerous local vendors that come together to showcase their highly desired products and services. Restaurants, breweries and wineries come together to pair up their best. These business owners are experts in their trade and are eager to expose their talents. Some of the best foods and top rated cocktails are sure to entertain anyone’s appetite.

The Auburn community festival better known locally as the harvest festival is one of my personal favorites and kicks off the fall season with a bang. The Auburn Recreational District is home to the infamous scarecrow competition, giant pumpkin contest, followed by a costume parade. As if this wasn’t exciting enough the festival is home to great food, bounce houses and cool crafts. For me this truly is the start of fall.

These are just a handful of the fall festivities that Auburn and Placer County are proud to put on. For more info on all that’s happening this fall give us a call. Here at the Sierra Lifestyle Team we are here to ensure you experience the best in our community.

New Rentals in Auburn

If you are having difficulties finding rentals in the Auburn area you are not alone! The rental market is slim with hardly any inventory to choose from. Most often there is some conflicting factor that eliminates choices and the options that are left are less than substantial. Whether it’s priced too high, size too small, no yard or not pet friendly. The struggle is real when searching for a decent place to call home in the Auburn area, surrounding Placer County and neighboring Nevada County.

Well here is a quick bit about a new housing development in Auburn, a 64 unit apartment complex, Quartz Ridge. These new apartments are located behind the Raley’s shopping center near the Foresthill Bridge exit off 80. This project begun construction in March and is on a 16 month schedule for completion. Other than home to 64 families the complex will have a community pool and a community building. The complex is designated to be an affordable housing unit for income qualifying parties with specific regulations. The rental prices range from $350 to just over $1000 based on factors such as the size of the unit desired or individual income qualifications. For more information regarding these specific qualifications as well as further inquiry about the project and its developers please visit the Auburn Journal Website.

If you are a part of the rental war I suppose you should weigh out options and see all opportunities that are available to you. This new development  at Quartz Ridge could be the answer so many renters have been waiting for. If not, and this sounds like another qualifying obstacle you may not meet consider other possibilities. Becoming a home owner and leaving the rental world in the past could be a great solution.
