September 2014 Lake Tahoe Real Estate Market Report We are now in the 4th quarter of 2014! With nine months of data behind us, we have a much better sense of what has been happening in the first three quarters of 2014. The Lake Tahoe real estate markets have been dominated by upward movement in the luxury segment as the number of million dollar plus home sales is up 22% over 2013. This year sales volume is down 18% over 2013 but with each new sale we are seeing pricing push upwards (median price is up 15%) as buyers are willing to pay a premium for desirable properties. Part of the reason for the slowdown in sales volume is due to limited inventory and buyers becoming more discerning when shopping for Tahoe and Truckee homes. With fewer “deals” in the market we are seeing marketing time...

August 2014 Lake Tahoe Real Estate Market Report The 2014 Lake Tahoe real estate markets have been dominated by upward movement in the luxury segment as the number of million dollar home sales are up 27% over 2013. So far this year sales volume is down 19% over 2013, but with each new sale we are seeing pricing push upwards (median price is up 15%) as buyers are willing to pay a premium for desirable properties. Buyers have become more discerning when shopping for Tahoe and Truckee homes which is part of the reason why we are seeing fewer home sales than last year.  We continue to see high buyer demand, low inventory levels, lower levels of distressed home sales (REO and Short Sales) which have led to solid increases in home values.  These are all signs of a healthy increasing market an...

July 2014 Lake Tahoe Real Estate Market Report In 2014, the Lake Tahoe real estate markets have been dominated by upward movement in the luxury segment as the number of million dollar plus home sales is up 17% over 2013. We continue to see fewer home sales than last year, but buyers are paying a premium for these properties (median is up 17%) and it appears that buyers have become more discerning when shopping for Tahoe and Truckee homes, which is part of the reason why we are seeing fewer home sales than last year. We continue to see high buyer demand, low inventory levels, lower levels of distressed home sales (REO and Short Sales) which have led to solid increases in home values.  These are all signs of a healthy increasing market and we anticipate that the remainder of the year will...

The Lake Tahoe real estate markets continue to show strength in 2014 with single family home pricing up significantly over 2013.  Now that we are half way through the year we continue to see fewer home sales than the previous year but average and median single family home pricing is rising due to a continuation of high buyer demand, low inventory levels, lower levels of distressed home sales (REO and Short Sales) and an increase in luxury homes sales.  These are all signs of a healthy increasing market and we anticipate a strong summer of sales in the Lake Tahoe real estate markets. Over the last month we have seen a bump in inventory which has been well received by buyers who have patiently been waiting for new homes to come on the market.  With the current buyer demand these new listi...

  Lake Tahoe Real Estate Market Report, Jan - May 2014 With 5 months of real estate sales data under our belts, one thing is for sure, the 2014 Lake Tahoe real estate markets are  hot in 2014!  This year the theme that keeps repeating itself with the passing of each month is high buyer demand, low inventory levels, fewer distressed sales (REO's and Short Sales) and an increase in luxury home sales.  When these factors come together it is no wonder that we are seeing double digit appreciation over 2013.   Now that May has arrived it's officially the start of the summer selling season in Lake Tahoe and over the last few weeks we have seen inventory levels creep higher and we anticipate that between now and the end of July we will continue to see inventory levels increase.  Increased inven...
