The state of Nevada is offering free downpayment grants to qualifying home buyers. If you earn less than $95,000 and are looking to buy a home of $400,000 or less, you might be able to receive grant money of up to 5% of your loan downpayment and closing costs. Free Money to Buy a Home in RenoTo put that in perspective, that's like being "given" up to $16,000 on a standard loan.  No joke.  The program is one of several grant and mortgage assistance programs offered through the Nevada Division of Rural Housing (and don't be fooled by "rural;" Reno buyers can also qualify.)

Check out this chart with snowfall from this week's storm and the year-to-date. Sugar Bowl, for example, has seen 34 feet of snow this season, with almost 22 feet this month! Tahoe Ski Season off to Great StartGreat news for skiers, and a little intimidating to some homebuyers new to the Tahoe market who find themselves asking if you can have "too much of a good thing." Falling trees have led to power outages, and road closures have made it difficult for plows to keep driveways cleared. If you are thinking about a home in Tahoe, or have recently bought here, it's important to know this is *not* the norm.
