    With a 10% Y-O-Y decline in prices, only a shameless real estate shill could say,

    “With the increase of high-end sales, we are anticipating a boost in end-of-year numbers”

    I wonder how Smarten’s place is doing these days. At this rate, I’ll be able to afford to be his neighbor in a few years…

    The median price at Tahoe is $370K?

    The median price in Reno/Sparks in 1/06 was $365K.

    You mean to tell me that the Tahoe market today is basically what the Reno/Sparks market was 6 years ago?

    Half of all houses that sold in Tahoe sold for $370K or less? That’s getting to be pretty pedestrian, isn’t it? Used Toll Bros. McMansions in Reno cost more than that.
    How can the people who own there continue to feel superior?
