I live in a beautiful area of vast wilderness areas along with three mountain ranges that are spectacular and offer me views in all directions. The Sacramento River courses through Shasta County as it travels Southward. Living life as an a art form is possible here in the Shasta County, California. Whether you want the urban lifestyle or a country place, you can find the very best and at a price that is reasonable. This website is dedicated to providing you with proof of the beauty with localism posts combined with another love of mine, photography. As we travel three Counties in our real estate work, we stop along the way to photograph beautiful places. We have a series we call “Perfect Days in Perfect Places”.  Come along on a tour of the North State..

I have showcased the communities and cities of Shasta County, California. Explore and enjoy each community or City. It will provide a brief overview of the community or City and the lifestyles that they offer. As time goes on and we travel and work in the North State, we will be sharing here on The Shasta Lifestyle. I enjoy life and embrace many things. I have a love of photography, fly fishing, wilderness areas, wild flowers, birding, hunting trout, gardening, cooking, opera, jazz, poetry and lively conversation.

Note: With the Median Sold price in 2009 being $359,000, 2010 being $318,000 and 2011 being $342,500, we see a more stable year in 2011. Good prices and continued record low interest rates bring good opportunity for Buyers in this market. It would be premature to say that we are seeing the market begin to turn towards some growth. With the shadow inventory of foreclosed home (REOs) still in the inventory, we will not see a healthy market until this issues has been dealt with.

What we do see is the overall effect of low interest rates helping to keep the market moving and giving Buyers the opportunity to buy at very good prices. Pricing well in this market remains critical.
