Why Purchase South Lake Tahoe Real Estate Now?

In my recent blog, I explained that interest in Lake Tahoe real estate is up, sales are up and inventory is down. Since there are so few homes on the market, those that are for sale are seeing lots of interest and activity. Inventory of homes for sale is tight throughout the west and Lake Tahoe is no different. The recent monthly Lake Tahoe real estate figures explain the situation as well.

Now that the interest rates have fallen to an all time low and more people have confidence in the economy I feel that we’re going to see inventories dwindle even more as sales continue strong.  Plus, a new set of home buyers are in the market…those that previously lost their home to foreclosure can now quality for FHA loans.

Lake Tahoe Foreclosures and Short Sales

Buyers interested in the Lake Tahoe real estate market need to look beyond short sales and foreclosures if they’re looking for good value in a home.  Since there are so few of distressed sales (just one listed this week) remaining on the market, traditional sale homes are now the popular homes for sale people are looking at.

Last week we did see a few more bank owned homes enter the market than expected but this week’s list has just 2 foreclosed homes. Foreclosures have been down state-wide even though real estate experts were expecting to see a surge in bank owned homes on the market due to the pending California Bill of Rights for homeowners.  We’ll watch and see what happens over the next few weeks.
