If you're a foodie who like mountains & snow, and appreciates diversity ... Or someone who likes snowy winters with mountains, plus great restaurants close by, the New York Times says Incline Village, Nevada should be on your Top 10 places to live.

Those are the results of the NYT's new interactive "Where You Should Live" quiz.  Not totally on spot because most folks considering Incline Village are not also looking at upstate New York, Anchorage, or Connecticut, which are also recommended "best spots" if you start adding criteria like 'jobs' or 'health care' into mix.

Nonetheless, it's sort of a fun app if you're curious to see where the algorithm would have you move.

That said, if you are considering a move or a vacation home in Incline Village, here are my Top 5 reasons why it's a great place to live:

  • Lake Tahoe - few places in the world compare to Tahoe (OK, maybe Lake Geneva, but Switzerland is kind of a long commute from the SF Bay Area.)
  • Private beaches - Tahoe gets crowded in the summer, but Incline Village beaches are private to owners & their guests. Kind of a rarity at Tahoe. And one of many amenities Incline Village owners enjoy, including two golf courses, scenic Ski Resort overlooking Lake Tahoe, swimming pools, tennis, and a fitness center.
  • Nevada Tax Advantages - with no state income tax, no pension tax, no capital gains tax, and favorable treatment for some businesses, Nevada appeals to those seeking refuge from tax-heavy states.
  • The Impossible Trail - this new 3-mile paved trail links Incline Village to Sand Harbor along the shores of Lake Tahoe's turquoise blue waters. It is among the most beautiful walks in the world.
  • Climate Change - while the ski industry might feel the pain of a multi-year drought, Tahoe & the Sierra mountains are the source for much of the water that flows downstream to our urban neighbors. Recent droughts have led to discussions of water rationing in many cities, but our underground aquifers are holding up strong.  While we might see snow-making at many local resorts this winter, one friend aptly described it as "above-ground" water storage.

If you are considering Incline Village, let me know if I can help with questions about the real estate market or lifestyle. As a broker with Chase, I also work in California, and can help you weigh the pros and cons of a Lake Tahoe home on the California side vs Nevada side of the lake.
