The Weekend Warrior (June 18-21)

WELCOME TO

THE WEEKEND WARRIOR

Great news!  With the re-opening of businesses and some “altered” events in Reno-Sparks, I am pleased to bring back THE WEEKEND WARRIOR.  While it was interesting to look at real estate market statistics and news over the last few months in THE WEEKLY WATCH, I will now provide the market update once per month. And naturally, as events and activities pick up in Northern Nevada, my content will grow over the coming months.  Stay positive, stay healthy, and enjoy life everyone!

RENO RESTAURANT WEEK

Actually… it’s not just in Reno anymore!  Reno Restaurant Week is a fabulous 10-day (Thru June 24) culinary exploration that will fancy your taste buds from Sparks, to Reno, to Carson City.  69 of Northern Nevada’s finest eating establishments open their doors and welcome you in for a wonderful meal out.  Then for added fun, do the following:

  • Follow @RenoFoodWeek on Instagram
  • Follow the establishment you have chosen to visit on Instagram
  • Take a photo (or photos) of your food/drinks and/or a photo with the owner/chef/server
  • Post photos on Instagram, tag the establishment and @RenoFoodWeek and use the hashtag #RenoFoodWeek in your caption
  • Winners will be notified via Instagram direct message the last week of June, 2020.

EXPLORE THE TAHOE-PYRAMID TRAIL

The Tahoe-Pyramid Trail is based on a vision for a trail that would follow the entire length of the Truckee River, from its source at forested Lake Tahoe (6225′) to the desert terminus of Pyramid Lake (3796′). The current route can be traveled by foot or by bicycle, and when fully completed, will descend over 2000 feet during the entire course of the 114-mile long trail, using a combination of existing dirt and paved roads, bike paths, historic roads, as well as many new sections of trail and connecting bridges. So much to explore… and most of the trail is open.  Visit TahoePyramidTrail.org for more information and trail maps.

 

START PLANNING FOR ARTOWN!!
For those of you who have lived in Reno, you are aware that in July, Reno is ARTOWN!  It’s right around the corner… The entire month has historically overflowed with concerts, dance performances, plays, artist shows, sculpture displays, fire dancing and more.  This year, for obvious reasons, Artown will look a bit different.  With the majority of events taking place virtually, you have the luxury of planning ahead and enjoying Artown from the comfort of your home.  Check out the calendar of concerts, comedy, galleries, and more at Artown.org.

FIND OUT THE VALUE OF YOUR HOUSE
Are you curious about the estimated value of your house, but don’t trust Zillow’s ever swinging Zestimates?  Perhaps you would like to call on a human being to look at the special features of your home that Zillow DOESN’T know about. This is where I come in…  Happy to run a complimentary Comparative Market Analysis on your home to determine the estimated market value for you.  Just contact me today so we can discuss!

 

EXPLORE NORTHERN NEVADA REAL ESTATE
Curious about what real estate is available for sale in Northern Nevada?  Check out the active inventory on one of the best real estate search engine available.  Set yourself up for a quick search.  But if you want to delve a little deeper and more specific (i.e., certain age of construction, single vs. two-story, etc.) then create an account, and I’ll get you headed in the right direction. You’ll actually see what’s active, not pending (unlike a real estate website that begins with the letter “Z.”)  Visit DeniseHallerbach.RealScout.Me to get started!

 

BBQ KOREAN FLANK STEAK

If you crave BBQ that is mouthwateringly delicious, then you MUST try the Korean Flank Steak that I have been making for years!  Fresh ginger and garlic, and that subtle pop from a touch of Sriracha sauce give this recipe a distinct taste you will want to make for years to come too!  I originally found it on Epicurious.com, and it can be found on my website now at DeniseHallerbach.com.  Enjoy!!

 

GET UP TO SPEED WITH THE REAL ESTATE MARKET

How did the Reno-Sparks real estate market fair in the face of COVID-19 in May?  Quite well, I must say, considering…  Visit DeniseHallerbach.com for the June 2020 Market Report for May 2020 figures and stay informed!

 

IN-THE-KNOW REAL ESTATE BLOG
Every year, Gallup conducts a survey of Americans to determine their choice for the best long-term investment. Respondents are asked to select real estate, stocks/mutual funds, gold, savings accounts/CDs, or bonds.  For the seventh year in a row, real estate has come out on top as the best long-term investment.  Read on
