Now that we are in the heat of Summer, inventory is up and sales are beginning to level off as buyers in the real estate market go on vacation during the Summer– often times to spend quality time with their family, friends and children before school starts. It is normal to experience a lull and lower housing inventory in the Lake Tahoe – Truckee area during the Summer months through September. The general Lake Tahoe area housing market activity usually picks up in Fall, thus, I predict an increase in interested homebuyers by September.
One of the things I love about the Lake Tahoe real estate market is its versatility. From Truckee to the Lake Tahoe Basin, whether you are retiring, buying your first home, want a relaxing Holiday retreat, interested in a vacation get-away, desiring a fabulous Lakefront home with a waterfront pier on the breathtaking shores of Lake Tahoe or wanting to invest, Lake Tahoe Truckee is a great destination for anyone.
Lake Tahoe Area Investment Investment Properties
A strong investment market, the Lake Tahoe, Truckee homes and land market is dominated by vacation and investment properties. For many, Lake Tahoe and Truckee has become the perfect “get-away” to escape the hustle and bustle of the 9-5 job, long, extended work hours and the accelerated pace of areas like the San Francisco Bay Area and the greater Sacramento regions.
Lake Tahoe Truckee is also the perfect location for those entering the golden years of retirement age. I have worked with many couples wanting to settling down in their “dream home.” There is no greater joy than watching people achieve the thing they’ve been working for their entire life. From equestrian homes, golf course properties and lake front homes, to grand estates and private villas, the luxury real estate market in Lake Tahoe and Truckee is very diverse. Some of our most high-end communities include golf courses, tennis centers, swimming pools, state of the art fitness centers, equestrian facilities, private beaches, cross-country skiing, down hill skiing, dining and more!
