Tahoe Time

Greetings - I often hear around tax season how expensive it is to live in CA and many people contemplate leaving the state to seek other fun resort areas where they can live the same lifestyle and save a little money.  There are so many amazing places on this planet, but it doesn’t get much better than Tahoe on a day-to-day basis.  With an international airport 45 minutes away in [...]

March, 2018 Tahoe-Truckee Market Update

Greetings – A short month, during which a week is allocated to ski-related travel, often turns February into a hectic period for real estate sales. While the total volume of sales often drops, the premium segment of the Tahoe-Truckee market continues to thrive. This year the top end transactions in Northstar, Martis Camp, Old Greenwood and waterfront property on Lake Tahoe all transacted at extremely healthy numbers. The winners of the [...]

Miracle March

Greetings - On the forefront of everyone’s mind is the question of when we are going to get one of our famous 5-foot Sierra storms.  Mother nature has not cooperated in providing the heavy snow winters that we are accustomed to, but the pattern is changing and “Miracle March” looks like it is making a comeback.  I am very excited to see the snow totals come this Sunday as we [...]

February, 2018 Tahoe-Truckee Market Update

Greetings, An early theme has emerged for the performance of Tahoe-Truckee real estate in 2018. Historically tight inventory combined with surging demand are resulting in a lesser overall quantity of transactions at substantially higher prices. To quantify, January, 2018 posted 87 residential transactions. This compares to 92 in January, 2017; a 6% decrease in what is historically the slowest month for closings of any given year.  Conversely, the average sale [...]

Greetings - I have had the pleasure of spending a majority of the last 11 years working in the Gray’s Crossing community helping open the facilities as the golf professional and selling real estate to buyers who seek the mountain lifestyle. I thought it would be fun to look back and see how far this community has come since Jeff Brown, General Manager of Tahoe Mountain Realty spoke of a [...]

Prices appreciated by a robust [...]

‘Tis the Season

Greetings - We have had a few wet storms that have provided some high elevation snow and the night time temperatures are cold enough for the ski areas to go full force with snowmaking. I have already skied a few days with my boys at Squaw Valley and had one day in the backcountry at Mt. Rose. We look forward to Northstar hopefully opening tomorrow if the snow making goes [...]
