Trinkie, look what I found!

Trinkie-- I know you specialize in a lot of second home buyers. There is good news on that front as well. Last year second home and vacation home purchasers made up 1/3 of all real estate purchases according to the National Association of Realtors. There is no change in sight so this should be a great indicator for the west shore of Lake Tahoe for 2008. Thanks Craig
