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.

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 REAL ESTATE IN TRUCKEE / LAKE TAHOE – REO/Short Sales Lists as of 2/2/12

Single Family:
• 571 total active/active-contingent listings (down 9% from a total of 630 a month ago)
• 124 REO/SS = 22% (down 13% from a total of 142 a month ago)
• 27 REO (down 25% from a total of 36 a month ago)
• 97 SS, of which 59% have offers working (down 8% from a total of 106 a month)

Condos/Townhomes:
• 231 total active/active-contingent listings (down just 1% from a total of 233 a month ago)
• 32 REO/SS = 14% (down just 9% from a total of 35 a month ago)
• 6 REO (down 33% from a total of 9 a month ago)
• 26 SS, of which 62% have offers working (no change from last month)

Although there’s not a significant change in the condo/townhome statistics for distressed properties (except for 1/3 less REOs), on the ‘single family’ front, this is 2 months of significant drops in number of REO/Short Sale properties on the market. At the beginning of December, there were a total of 171 single family REO/SS listings (active and active-contingent); today there are 124, a 27% drop. Twould be nice if this were a trend!

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.
