Folsom Lake Trails There's always something to do around El Dorado Hills.  Today my husband and I explored one of the many Folsom Lake trails. This was part of the New York Creek Trail that also goes down to the El Dorado Hills CSD if not further.  That's the furthest I've been at least! We caught the trail off Salmon Falls Road just east of the New York Creek bridge you see here, and followed it to where it feeds into the South Fork of the American River. Beautiful day!!!

The olympic games will resume in Sochi, Russia next month.  Couch potato's around the world will watch thousands of athletes, who have been honing their skills for years, compete for Olympic gold. While we are focused on these stunning performances we tend to forget that there are non-human athletes, some right in our own homes, practicing their specific set of skills as well.Some of this practice takes place when we are not there to observe. However, past evidence motivated us to leave the video camera on. Sango, my daughter's two-year old black Lab, is just such an athlete. Note the ease with which he mounts the 38" high counters and island surfing for edible tidbits. See how his coat becomes more glossy as he finishes off a newly broken bottle of salad dressing while my older dogs ba...

Becoming a Better Homeowner...is an ongoing process... Too many of my clients have put every penny they had in to buying their home...that they either couldn't, or just haven't taken the overall maintenance of their investment, very serious. Just like planning and saving for Retirement it is necessary to plan and save for the maintenance of your home. Some of it, is simple and CHEAP!  Like just keeping note (somewhere you will actually look)  :) To change the filters for your furnace/intake, and to change the batteries in your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide meters...do this every 6 months.  I write the date on the filters themselves, and just know-I changed the Batts. in my detectors at the same time... It isn't all about Maintenance either, it is about protecting your investment b...

Speechless Sunday - Jay's Citrus My husband really enjoys working in the yard and takes great pride in his Citrus trees.  The Satsuma above, didn't produce for a couple years and Jay was ready to yank it. Luckily he found out that the reason was probably because he had pruned it really hard a couple years ago.  This year it has a great crop, and as you can see, his lemon tree is loaded. We have a lime tree as well that he has already taken off and given away 3 5-gallon size paint buckets full and still has a couple buckets worth on the tree.  Citrus grow really well in El Dorado Hills.  If our temperatures get into the low 30's, they may need a little protection but for the most part, they like our heat and our sunshine!   _________________________________________ I am a REALTOR® in El ...

Is The El Dorado Hills Real Estate Market Slowing?   The El Dorado Hills Market may have slowed a bit but looking at the sales and pending sales, we are not far off from our normal numbers for each month.  What is more important to consider is what it is costing you to wait if you are contemplating a move.  The first two charts below show Trendgraphix Market Data over the last 12 years with regards to our inventory verses sales and our average selling price per square foot. The last chart shows how the interest rates have fluctuated through the years.     Inventory For Sale, Sold, and Pended  Average Price Per Square Foot Selling Price    Long Term Morgage Rate Trends  Reproduced with the permission of Mortgage-X.com   As inventory rises, you may have more to choose from but it may cost...
