The coronavirus pandemic and the ensuing financial crisis have caused immeasurable hardship and pain across the U.S. Paradoxically enough, the crisis has also served as a turbocharged shot to the housing market. Feverish buyers rushed into the market just as COVID-19-shy sellers pulled their homes off—forcing buyers into bidding wars and pushing prices up to new heights. Recession be damned.
Now, as the long-awaited vaccines are being rolled out, home buyers and sellers are eager to take real estate’s temperature. Will prices finally cool off? Will the big cities come back? And will more homes finally go up for sale?… Read here.
According to our friends at the Tahoe Institute for Natural Science (TINS), 42 bald eagles were spotted in their annual count. This is 15 more than the 2017 record of 27 eagles. Thanks to careful and descriptive data collection from over 200 volunteers, TINS was able to differentiate 30 individual adults and sub-adults and 12 immatures (featured in the photo). Thank you TINS and the amazing volunteers that help count the eagles year after year. For more information on the Bald Eagle count, visit takecaretahoe.org.
