Have you considered financing for this property? There are some things to think about when buying an second property. Well first off since this is an second home property and not your primary home, things will be treated differently when it comes to finances and rules. You can no longer qualify for any of the first-time buyer perks like grants or an FHA loan unless you actually plan to occupy this property. Otherwise, you will be expected to pay a higher down payment and interest rate if this is your second property. Either way, you should speak with a lender like myself that would be able to help you with your questions when it comes to financing. Well I hope this helps! If you have any other questions or if you would like a loan, feel free to contact me. Good Luck! Brian Nguyen Sr. Mortgage Banker NMLS # 659743 Phone: 949.667.2887 ... more

El Dorado County is the best place I have ever lived. (I have lived on the East Coast, Northwest, and CA) We now have high-speed-internet here, and all the conveniences you come to expect. If I were you I would rent for a while in the Pollock Pines area or Pleasant Valley and you will soon see how friendly this area is. It is really nothing like the rest of CA. Lake Tahoe is awesome for both winter and summer fun. Lots of hiking, skiing, wineries, etc.....

Part-time work is available here but will be low paying. We have many world-class wineries in the South county. I work at home and life is good!

Take the risk and I promise you won't regret it!

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 (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.

I currently live in Pollock, it is nice, nothing more beautiful that a fresh blanket of snow covering everything when you awake in the morning. Where I live are many vacation homes, in fact, I watch a couple for my neighbors during the storms as to alert them when a tree has fallen on the house, power outages, etc. For a get-away cabin it is a good area, depending on the amount of snow you can tolerate. Today is Tue, starting tomorrow Wed through Sunday we will get another 3-5 feet of snow before Xmas. The Hwy 50 corridor is not as crowded as the Hwy 80 corridor, so the traffic will not be like it is on Hwy 80. But getting over the summit is much harder, Hwy 80 is easier. If you are looking for a winter get-away, make sure you install or obtain w/2nd house an inline generator. If the wind blows, we lose electricity. The only ISP option is COMCAST and they are usually down more than they are up, the only other option is a dial-up connection. No fiber optics and no DSL. Even problems with DirecTV if a snow cloud is in the sky. ... more

brackish - but get a really good RO system and it is not bad. That is IF the county will let you drill for a well. Currenlty existing properties w/well - have to convert to EID when the well goes dry. EID is notorious for outrageous water rates, as the CEO and CFO of EID just got HUGE payouts - bonuses, for doing absolutely nothing. ... more
