According to our MLS (Metrolist, the professional site that Realtors use), the answer is No. It was on the market for 18 days, and is now PENDING (ie in escrow). If you have an agent, you need to work closely & VERY quickly with them to be able to buy almost anything under $150,000 in this market. In some areas, a home for sale can easily get over 50 offers in less than a week! For almost anything priced under $100,000 you'll probably need to have an offer completed and to the agent within the first couple of days.
To check REAL statuses (not old, stale, or distorted data), go to www.metrolistmls.com (the public side of our professional site). Even using this, though, an offer could easily have come in, & the Realtor or their Admins, might not have had a chance to update the listing yet.... more

Pollock Pines covers a geographical area of dozens of square miles and hundreds of feet of elevation changes in its mountainous region. Due to the way water tables vary in elevation below the ground, wells drilled in neighboring properties may vary significantly in the depth required to bring an adequate flow to the surface. Each well location has to be evauluated separately. It is likely that there are wetter neighborhoods and drier neighborhoods.
Many wells have little or no variation in GPM available from winter to summer. This is because the acquifers that supply wells charge up over years and decades and centuries. The water a well draws up today may be rainwater that fell during the Eisenhower administration.
Your buyers representative may suggest a well test for potability and for volume test (GPM - gallons per minute ) as part of the due diligence process. You may also want to ask the sellers to disclose what they know about the wells history. - Although that could be useless if you are dealing with a bank owner.
Well companies may be able to help you with questions.
