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.

It’s getting HOT in the neighborhood!!

It’s getting HOT in the neighborhood!…and we’re not talking about the weather!

The Real Estate Market is lighting up locally!

There is an extreme buzz happening throughout our local area in  our neighborhoods. From the Alta Sierra community in Grass Valley Nevada County to the new north Auburn devlopements in Placer County there is a need for inventory. Witnessing the real estate market first hand from hosting open houses and chit chatting with friends more than half of everyone I know and meet are needing a home to purchase. As properties come up for sale there is a mass interest even before it hits the market. Then very shortly of going live on the market the property has gone pending with a handful of qualified motivated buyers still searching.

If you have recently been on the fence about listing your house let me shine a little light on what my Real Estate team is experiencing and seeing first hand. Many sellers are hesitant or reluctant to put their house on the market for various reasons, most of which can be resolved. There may be a large and expensive repair or upgrade that is daunting and could hinder the sale of their house. Pricing the house slightly below market value or have a credit value set can easily attract buyers and also let them know that you are willing to get the ball rolling and get the house sold.

We are  working with many buyers looking to get into Placer County and Nevada County and when the properties are pending rather quickly, many are still left searching. Qualified and ready to buy, many eager to settle in before the summers end. If you’ve had thoughts or reservations about selling, call us today! All transactions are circumstancial as all of our lives are different in their own way. We look forward to hearing from you and can’t wait to serve you.

Happy Fourth of JULY!! Hope your 4th was awesome!!
