We provide our clients with accurate data about the Nevada County Real Estate market.
There’s a ton of news out there about what the market is doing in California or nationally. But what really matters to people making life decisions here in the foothills is What is the Nevada County real estate market doing? We are a rural county, and our local market doesn’t always reflect what is happening in the rest of the state.
There’s also a lot of speculation, which is dangerous to rely on. When it comes to making Nevada County real estate decisions, we work with accurate, real-time data, not speculation!

A Message to Our Buyers:
We are super responsive and available to show you property right when it comes on the market so you don’t miss out. We can handle all the offer paperwork quickly so that you have the best chance at getting the property you want. (As long as you’ve already connected with a lender and have your loan prequal letter handy!) This can make the difference between finding your dream home and buying it instead of watching it get snapped up by someone else.
In this market, it’s important to know right away when a listing comes on that matches your needs. Our Nevada County MLS property search feature gives you the ability to save your search results, so you don’t have to enter in your search criteria every time you visit our site. Your saved property searches will automatically update with new results, and you will receive email updates when a new listing comes on that matches your criteria.

Whatever your vision is, we work hard to make sure our buyers get the best possible deal, no matter what market conditions we are facing.

Is it a good time to sell a home?
Smart sellers can sell a home fast in Nevada County by pricing properly and working with an agent that knows how to create powerful listings . . . ahem, like us! We have extensive experience in creating beautiful visuals to connect your property with buyers.
Marketing homes for sale in today’s online world also means understanding how to harness the power of social media. We do it all.
Many potential home sellers determine their value of their home using free online tools from real estate websites. The truth is that these calculators are often lacking vital information about the property (as well as the comparable properties) such as condition, accurate square footage, and many other important factors in determining market value.
The only accurate way to assess the value of your home is to consult with an experienced Nevada County real estate agent and have them do a market analysis for your property. (You may also hire a licensed appraiser.) We provide this service for home owners who are ready to sell, or seriously considering if selling is the right move for them. For a free professional estimate, please feel free to contact us.
We are also responsive and available during the entire process of selling your home. We update you about how potential buyers are responding to your listing, and we evaluate your competition while your home is on the market. Learn more about selling a home in Nevada County.
Want to build a home in Nevada County?
We just did that! And wow, what an adventure. We started with raw Nevada City land, and had to figure out all the basics like water and power. We built a new home, with a focus on sustainability and green building choices, while choosing a look and feel of the home that fits in with our historical area. We worked with local companies as much as possible (such as our solar system from Sustainable Energy Group, that offsets nearly all our power use!)

Working with Nevada County real estate agents that know what it takes to find land and build a home will help make the process easier. We love helping people turn their vision into reality.
Whether you are buying a home or selling a home, we can help you achieve your goal. Please feel free to contact us with any questions.
