A Key Opportunity for Homebuyers

A Key Opportunity for
Homebuyers | MyKCM

There's no denying the housing market has delivered a fair share of challenges to homebuyers over the past two years. Two of the biggest hurdles homebuyers faced during the pandemic were the limited number of homes for sale and the intensity and frequency of bidding wars. But those two things have reached a turning point.

As you may have already heard, the number of homes for sale has increased this year, and even more so this spring. As Danielle Hale, Chief Economist for, explains:

New listings–a measure of sellers putting homes up for sale–were up 6% above one year ago. Home sellers in many markets across the country continue to benefit from rising home prices and fast-selling homes. That's prompted a growing number of homeowners to sell homes this year compared to last, giving home shoppers much needed options.

This is encouraging news. More homes coming onto the market give you a greater chance of finding one that checks all your boxes.

Lake Tabeaud - Amador Local Favorite Walking Spot

lake tabeaud amador county park

Halfway between Pine Grove and Jackson, CA on a gold country backroad sits a little gem of a lake that makes for a quick and easy escape from the daily grind.

Lake Tabeaud is centrally located in Amador County and is a local favorite spot as a day use hiking, biking, fishing, horseback riding and picnicing getaway.  Local fisherman frequent the small lake for a little fishing therapy and the lake is stocked with trout by fish and game occassionally in the spring.  Although there is no swimming or motorized boats on this tiny lake you can enjoy the water on a kayak or simply sit peacefully on the banks as you fish.

lake tabeaud hikingMany locals make use of the close hiking path which makes a 2.5 mile course around Lake Tabeau.  This path is wide in most places and not too difficult and many times shared with mountain bikers, horseback riders and happy dogs (on leash of course).  Scenery includes the serene lake surrounded with local foothill pines and oaks progressing to beautiful views of the Mokulumne River Canyon which glow with California poppies and local wildflowers in the spring.  As you progress to the narrower path that gently winds through the wooded area you can see the abandoned waterways which once fed into the lake and redirected for local Amador miners to use for water stamp mills and then ultimately now used for Amador County Public Water.  For more information of the water use of this lake you can contact Amador County Water District and PG&E which now use this waterway for Amador...
