Nevada County Real Estate Update                                       Summer 2016

Greetings Friends and Clients

Spring has rapidly moved into Summer in Nevada County.  The South Yuba River flows are still strong, wildflowers abundant, and people are turning to our lakes and rivers to recreate and enjoy our special area. 

Coming soon, Nevada City and Grass Valley each host their annual summer outdoor festivals of art and music. This year's Summer Nights celebration in Nevada City will be held three Wednesday evenings: July 13, 20, and 27. In Grass Valley, Thursday Night Market starts this Thursday June 23 and goes through July 28.  The festivals are a big draw for all ages and the streets fill with local friends as well as others from Sacramento and the Bay Area. We go knowing we will run into someone we have not seen in ages.
