All proceeds from tour ticket sales will benefit the Tahoe Forest Health System Foundation.

Schaffer’s Mill, a 475-acre, 400-homesite gated community and private club located just east of Truckee, was chosen by HGTV as the location for the 2014 HGTV Dream Home this past summer. HGTV built and decorated the beautiful 3,200-plus square foot cabin at Schaffer’s Mill. The Dream Home was revealed on HGTV on Wednesday, January 1st during a one-hour show. The network will then give the home away to one lucky winner through its HGTV Dream Home 2014 Giveaway.

“I recently toured the Dream Home and it is amazing,” said John Marlin, Managing Partner for Schaffer’s Mill. “If you have an opportunity to tour the home, I highly recommend it. Not only, is the architecture and decorating incredible, but the proceeds from tour ticket sales benefit a local Tahoe/Truckee charity — the Tahoe Forest Health System Foundation.”

The HGTV Dream Home 2014 was designed by Truckee-based Ward-Young Architects and was built by Tanamera Builders. Blending traditional and contemporary forms, the home is designed with two wings: a living wing and a bedroom wing with large expanses of glass and sliding door systems to create transparent and direct connection between indoors and outdoors.

Past locations for the HGTV Dream Home include Kiawah Island, South Carolina in 2013, Park City, Utah in 2012, Stowe, Vermont in 2011 and Sandia Park, New Mexico in 2010. The 2013 HGTV Dream Home Giveaway drew over 77 million entries, with the grand prize of a Kiawah Island HGTV Dream Home, a brand-new GMC Acadia Denali and $500,000 cash.

The Schaffer’s Mill community features home sites from the $200’s, Mountain Lodges from the $900’s and estate homes and luxury cabins from $1.2 million. Open since 2008 and named after the “Father of Truckee,” George Schaffer, Schaffer’s Mill pays homage to Mr. Schaffer, his ideals and vision.

TRUCKEE / LAKE TAHOE HGTV HOME GIVE AWAY

HGTV DREAM HOME FOR 2014

HGTV has chosen Schaffer’s Mill in Truckee California as its next location for its Dream Home giveaway.  For more pictures and the floorplan go to: http://www.hgtv.com/dream-home/hgtv-dream-home-2014-rendering-and-floor-plan/pictures/index.html

“It’s validation that this market is where people want to be,” said Jim Matoska, president of sales and marketing for Schaffer’s Mill. “You can’t just replace properties like Schaffer’s Mill or areas like Lake Tahoe, which are just so unique. HGTV recognized that and did their research. It certainly benefits the whole area. More people are becoming aware of what we already know — that Tahoe is a unique lifestyle.”

It is the 18th year of the cable network giveaway, which last year garnered more than 80 million entries for the Kiawah Island, S.C., giveaway home. Previous homes have been located across the county in Sonoma, Calif.; Jackson Hole, Wyo.; Camden, Maine; and three in Florida.

“I have been responsible for scouting the location for every HGTV dream home since the beginning,” said Jack Thomasson, HGTV house planner. “I really scour the country each year for the place that I feel is our next-best location.”

He has scouted the Lake Tahoe area several times but could never find the right location, until this spring when he heard about Schaffer’s Mill.

It is less than 20 miles from popular Lake Tahoe attractions and have several ski resorts less than 30 minutes away. USA Today named Lake Tahoe one of the best lakes in the United States in 2012.

Thomasson said he liked Schaffer’s Mill’s philosophy of responsible growth and connection it made to the best parts of the region such as the lake and ski resorts.

PostHeaderIcon Truckee / Lake Tahoe Real Estate Market Profile Report – Jan vs Feb 2013 – Prices are on the Rise!

For single family homes SOLD in the Truckee / Lake Tahoe area, total active declined 6% from January to February, and actual sales prices were up, both average prices (+10%) as well as median prices (+24%). For condos/townhomes, total active inventory declined by 4%, average sales prices were down 12%, but median prices were up 8%. Much of the limited, new inventory coming on the market is snatched up quickly as there is a pent-up demand from buyers who have missed out in previous multiple-offer situations. We anticipate this will continue for at least the next couple of months as we don’t expect any substantial increase in inventory until the winter ski season is over and inventory that has been on ski leases possibly comes on the market.

Market Profile Report – Truckee/Lake Tahoe

I hope this information is useful to you in your decision making process for buying or selling a home. Please contact me for more market statistics or market information.

Prices are on the rise with inventory very low!

PostHeaderIcon Monthly Sales Statistics for Tahoe / Truckee Real Estate – Sales from Jan – Nov of 2010 verses 2011

SOLD HOMES IN TAHOE / TRUCKEE FROM 1-11 of 2010 compaired 2011

Attached are the monthly statistics, comparing January-November, 2010 vs. 2011, including stats for short sales & REOs.

As I analyze these, I’m always looking for a trend, and the one thing that is apparent is that in most cases, the number of units sold is up this year over last. And in several areas/comparisons, short sales are up with REOs being down, which is a good sign. I know many of you are still challenged getting approvals, but it appears that the government’s directives to lenders to “get with the program and shorten the response time on short sale approval requests” may have had an impact.

Median prices, although still less this year than for the same period last year, are going up, with less of a drop than the comparisons for previous months. So hopefully that is a positive sign as well.
