Nugget Market DavidDowntown Truckee came one step closer to getting its own grocery store this week, when the Town Planning Commission signed off on a proposal to build a 35,000 SF market in what used to be a part of the train yard. The project is being proposed by Nugget Markets, a boutique grocery store chain with 12 locations in Northern California. Described by some as a cross between Whole Foods and Trader Joe's, Nugget is known for offering gourmet selections, including craft beers, fine wines, and locally sourced beef and produce. With addresses in Tiburon, Corte Madera, and Sonoma, Nugget is catering to some well-heeled customers, and while their prices tend to be higher than larger chains, some online reviewers describe it as "the nicest grocery store" they have

 What's a Ski Lease?  That's a question I was asked last week, reminding me that as realtors we sometimes assume our everyday jargon is commonplace. A ski lease is a short-term rental of your home for the ski season, usually at a higher monthly rate than what it would fetch as a full-time rental.

September seems a little early to be thinking about skiing, but ... Hey, it snowed at Lake Tahoe last week! If you enjoy skiing enough to consider buying a season's pass this year, maybe it's time to think about purchasing a property here instead of renting this year?  With fewer buyers in the market, the shoulder season is a great time to pick up a deal. And the Tahoe real estate market is varied enough to offer something for every taste and budget.
