Carson Valley Real Estate – An Update by Scott Smith

Carson Valley NV- For the last several months the real estate market in the Carson Valley has been fun to be around. The housing inventory is fairly low, the buyers in the market are increasing and homes are turning quickly when priced right. As a realtor in the area for many years, it is always a great feeling when you can help a seller sell their home quickly and at the same time provide a buyer with a great value in the local real estate market.

Building is also starting to increase, with new homes going up in all corners of the Carson Valley and in Carson City. Developments that were started in 2007 when the market crashed, are teaming with life again as custom homes are being ordered and completed without long waits and local real estate investors are starting to move in and develop new home plans and lots for the new market push.

2. An exciting time to look into local real estate. If I can be of any assistance in either giving you an honest valuation of a home you might consider selling or in finding a great value in the market to buy please give me a call at 775-691-1777 or email me at

Where to have a Great Day in The Carson Valley on my OHV

Tags : 

The Carson Valley is such a great place to live.  Moderate Weather, beautiful mountain peaks and as many recreational things to do as I could imagine.

OHV (Off Highway Vehicles)  is my favorite Recreational past time that does not involve a boat on Lake Tahoe.  And the Pine nut mountain range and BLM land to the East of The carson valley is an endless playground for such an activity. Roads, trails, desert landscape and on occasion a glimpse at a wild horse as they graze in the Nevada Wild landscape.

The Carson Valley Trail association recently opened the Pinyon Trail, a new trail for horses, Mountain Bikes and people to hike on the South East of the Valley.

So it got me thinking, what are the best OHV trails in the area? Where are all the trails at? If I had a client that just moved here where would they find the local areas to ride their OHV. So here is a general list of Trail area in the region for OHV with directions.

The China Springs Trail

(FS-690), continue about .2 miles. 3) Look for e97105329ec144c4b6808733f6592930large turnout on the right, park/stage here 4) To hit the trail, veer right on Horseshoe Bend Rd. (the road behind the tree that heads southwest, not the sharp right that heads up the hill) 5) The road proceeds past a few houses on the left then over the ridge.  Trail Map
