If you are looking at homes for sale in Incline Village, NV, there are some things to know about mountain town living in a resort area. Especially if you are giving up city life to do it. The first thing is that you won’t regret making the transition, whether it is part time or full time. Nothing beats the fresh mountain air, beautiful lake views and endless recreation along with friendly locals. But life in a resort mountain town comes with challenges, benefits and nuances that need to be known. The best way to get this information is from your Incline Village, NV Realtor. We can tell you all about the various areas, which neighborhood is the best for you, where to go and things to keep an eye out for. Here are just a few things to keep in mind as you transition over to life in Lake Tahoe.
- You are living amongst the wildlife. We have bears, mountain lions, raccoons and coyotes, all of which need to be kept in mind as you navigate your new life in Tahoe. Bears and raccoons will break in if you make your house accessible so keep your doors and windows locked when you aren’t at home. Also, store your trash properly. We value our furry friends and prefer they not get hurt due to human error. Ask your Incline Village, NV Realtor what days are trash days, what is proper trash storage and what are the best features for keeping wildlife (and your house) safe from break ins.
- When looking at homes for sale in Incline Village, NV it is also a really good idea to keep in mind the maintenance that will need to be done during the various seasons. If you are looking for properties during spring or summer, you may not see the amount of snow that needs to be removed or think about navigating a lot of stairs when there is a lot of ice. If you are looking in the winter, you likely won’t know what is underneath and what landscaping will need to be done in the summer months. Defensible fire space is also something that needs to be thought about, especially if you only plan to occupy the property half of the year. Luckily, your Incline Village, NV Realtor will have all the knowledge on the various forms of mountain maintenance and the best vendors to help you care for your property.
- Seeing as Lake Tahoe is a world class resort destination, holidays, powder days and summer days can bring an influx of traffic. During shoulder seasons, dry winters or colder summers, you get used to less traffic, more parking, quicker lines while shopping and not having to get to the beach at 7 am on a summer day to secure a spot. If you expect to get around town in minutes every day of the year, you will need to pack your patience on days when more people are in town. If you like your quiet and space, ask your Realtor in Incline Village, NV what neighborhoods have more long term residents, less vacation rentals and are a bit off the beaten path.
