I have been doing a lot of BPOs (Broker Price Opinions – Appraisal) for the Banks in the Tahoe area, over 30 in the last few months.  Because of this we should be seeing more Bank Owned / Foreclosure Properties hitting the market in the near future.

Be sure to call if there are any homes you want to look at. The great homes at great prices sell fast – let us help you find one of these homes! We can easily arrange private showings for any home listed for sale. Call us when you are ready.

PostHeaderIcon Lake Tahoe / Truckee Home Sales are Up!

LAKE TAHOE & TRUCKEE HOMES SALES ARE UP IN 1ST QUARTER OF 2010

Single Family home sales are up over 50% in the first quarter of 2010 compared to that of the same time last year.  In our Tahoe MLS from January – March 2010 we had a total of 198 SF sales compared to 103 sales in the same period in 2009.  A majority of the sales in 2010 were based on Short Sale and Bank Owned property.

The median price down in 2010 by almost 30% (contributed to the distressed properties) at a value of just over $500,000.  Tahoe home values are what they were in the early 2000s.

Our high-end homes (values over $1,000,000) are still struggling but seem to doing better than last year, up almost 70%.

We are still seeing some great opportunities and will for awhile.  So if you have been considering that vacation property in Tahoe, it is a great time to start looking.  If you have any questions regarding our real estate market or just what more information about the Lake Tahoe area.  Give me a call anytime (530) 448-9830 or go to my new TAHOE BLOG at www.TahoeTruckeeProperty.com.

2009 was a better year in the Tahoe Real Estate Market compared to that of 2008 (based on number of units SOLD).  But the Median price was down from $591,500 in 2008 compared to $510,000 in 2009 (the drop in price was largely contributed to Short Sales and Bank Owned Properties that hit the market in 2009).

 Is 2010 going to be a better year?  Only time will tell, but based on the activity in the market it looks like sales will be up and price could still drop.

Happy House Hunting

We had a great winter this year, 450 – 500 inches (thats about 40 feet of snow, “WOW”).  Believe it or not thats not a record, in 1952 we got over 70 feet of snow that year, they skied all summer in places around Lake Tahoe.

PostHeaderIcon BANK OWNED (Foreclosures) in the Lake Tahoe / Truckee Region

 Foreclosures in the Truckee-Lake Tahoe Region

Real estate owned (REO) properties seem to be diminishing in the Truckee and North Lake Tahoe (California) areas.  Although new REO listings continued to increase through 2009 with a high of 45 coming on the market during the last quarter, the current listing inventory since the start of 2010 is down by approximately one-third.

According to an article in the San Francisco Chronicle, the government is scheduled to begin a program April 5 encouraging owners and banks to sell some of the homes they have not been able to “successfully modify” as “short sales” (selling for less than what is owed on the property).  If they are successful, it would potentially mean not foreclosing on those properties.  In practice, however, since many banks don’t have the capacity to pursue more of these labor-intensive sales, time will tell whether yet another government backed program will be successful.

To get more information about the current market in Tahoe or new BANK OWNED property coming to the market.  Send me an e-mail or call anytime to Greg@TahoeHomeHunter.com or go to www.TahoeHomeHunter.com.  My cell number is (530) 448-9830.
