Everything is negotiable! I would offer to pay a deposit equal to the amount of two pets, provide vaccination records and a picture when you apply. Good luck! I'm a pet lover too; love my 3 dogs!... more
Be prepared by knowing the conditions. I have never used chains in my 30 years living at Tahoe. However, I own a 4 wheel drive and snow tires. Tahoe does not mean SNOW SNOW SNOW and more SNOW. Right now, there isn't a spec of snow on our roads. Chains are used for "events".... more
Many people find Subaru as a good car for that area. The roads are well plowed most of the time but the side streets and driveways are another story at times. I've driven through plenty of snow in a front wheel drive car but a 4 wheel or all wheel vehicle is not since you won't have to worry about chains.... more
Anthony, median 89448 home values peaked in October of 2006 right at $900k. As of May 2012, Zephyr value has fallen nearly 50% to $460k, and continues to fall roughly 1% per month (with an occasional meaningless uptick). Based on a deepening Euro-recession and bailout frenzy, worsening global debt overhang (expect $20T U.S. debt by 2015), and a huge remaining backlog of bank-owned homes waiting to be listed, I predict Tahoe RE values continuing to fall into 2015, and then wallowing in bargain land for some years thereafter. My Zephyr forecast is $360k by 2015, roughly 1999 all over again.
Then again, nobody can predict the future.... more

I lived in Zephyr Cove (behind Round Hill) and on top of Kingsbury grade for about 10 years and it is primarily an owner occupied area, but being Tahoe virtually every neighborhood has some rental properties.
The best thing you can do is conduct a little door knocking around the property you are considering and talk to the residents on both sides of your prospective home.
Nobody can give you an answer better than the people that already live there and people in Tahoe are generally great about talking to their neighbors.
The quietest area I lived was up off of North Benjamin on Kingsbury grade. Never had any issues with noise there at all. Well, except for snow plows. :)... more
