The average home price in North Lake Tahoe, CA and Truckee is at a new record high!
In 2018 we are seeing extremely low inventory levels, especially in the sub $1M price points, if you are looking for a home below $700K the inventory becomes increasingly tighter. The inventory constrained market has caused the median home price to fall 4% off 2017 as there are very few homes for buyers to purchase and most buyers are willing to wait until inventory levels rise before making a purchase decision.
Discerning sellers are taking advantage of low inventory levels and are selling their homes quickly and for top dollar. In the last 12 months, there have been 1,219 single family home sales which equate to 101.58 sales per month on average. Currently, there are 202 homes for sale in the Tahoe-Sierra MLS which means that we only have a 2 month supply of inventory which shows that we are in a strong seller’s market. Undoubtedly, there is going to be a steady rise in inventory in the spring, which means more competition and will cause demand to soften. Now is the time to list your Tahoe or Truckee home!
Lake Tahoe luxury real estate is in high demand!
The Lake Tahoe luxury home market has been super active in 2018 with 32% of all sales in the $1M+ price points, pushing the average home price to $1,184,000, which is a new record high. Most sales over $3M have been within the prestigious Martis Camp golf course community, but we have also seen a few lakefronts trade hands, as well as Dollar Point homes and Tahoe Donner luxury homes, are trading at a feverish pace. Currently, Oliver Luxury Real Estate has the Carousel Lakefront Estate located at 2340 Sunnyside Lane, Tahoe City in escrow, which was listed at $29.5M and will most likely be the highest priced sale of 2018!
