Mammoth Lakes First-Time Home Buyer

Now that I have been working and living in Mammoth Lakes fulltime for almost fourteen years, I’ve see a full real estate cycle, the Village at Mammoth be built, Chair 9 transition from a slow fixed grip two-seater to a six-pack flying couch, and records winters of both the most and the least snowfall ever!  But I’ve also seen the younger locals (Gen X, and now even some Millennials) do one of two things: Flee… Read more.

Pricing Your Home Right in Mammoth Lakes – It’s Important!

Are you thinking of selling your Mammoth home or condominium?  When working with potential sellers, one of the biggest questions I get is “What are you going to do to sell my house?”  Sellers often ask about print and internet advertising, open houses, exposure to buyers, staging, and many other things.  And sure, having your home advertised on Zillow or Trulia will certainly help expose it to hundreds (if not thousands) of buyers, I always… Read more.

Own Your Mammoth Lakes Dream Home & Make Money Using VRBO & AirBnB

There is a growing trend in the hospitality industry that’s changing how people travel and turning the tourism business upside down:  AirBnB and VRBO.  Travelers love them; hoteliers hate them.  They aren’t going anywhere, especially with many CAP rates coming in higher on residential rentals vs. commercial properties.  So how does a person buy their dream vacation home, use it occasionally, make money and manage the renters?

From Mammoth Lakes, CA to Beatty, NV

For those of you that know where Beatty, Nevada is, I’m guessing that the first thing that comes to mind for most is the huge candy store you pass: Death Valley Nut & Candy Co.  Or perhaps you think of Beatty as the east entrance to Death Valley.  Or perhaps it’s just a place for you to get some gas to and from your road trips to Las Vegas. Well for me, and thanks to… Read more.

Getting Ready for Winter in Mammoth Lakes

I’m going to get ready for winter… no really! It happens around the same time every year in the Eastern Sierra summer nights start getting longer and little cooler the morning walk is nice and  crisp. Fall is in the air and before you know it winter is upon us. Every year we say to ourselves “next year I’m going to be ready” and here we are it’s time to get it done. So where… Read more.

One of my favorites and regular hikes this time of year is the Duck Lake Trail. Not only does this hike offer some of the most spectacular views, it has ever changing scenery that keeps you engaged and amazed throughout your hike.
