Previewing Homes For Clients

Busy busy weekend folks, even with the big storm coming in. What I have here is not an award-winning video by any stretch of the imagination. It is just a quick update. This was me this morning running around to a few houses for some clients of mine to proxy view homes for them that just came on the market. That was before I had to show homes to other clients coming in to town, and after having written an offer on another home before that. Oh, and it was my first daughter’s birthday!

It is absolutely clear to me that we need to be able to operate quickly in this real estate market. I looked at three places for them and we wrote on one this evening! Always happy to go the extra mile for my clients.

Snow in Tahoe and the Home Inventory

We Got Some Snow!

Finally right?  It is way past due, and is very appreciated. What does fresh snow mean for the Lake Tahoe real estate market though?

Well, the inventory of Tahoe homes for sale is pretty low right now. When inventory is low we have a seller’s market and we start to see prices rise. Prices have risen slowly but steadily recently. With a potentially large influx of tourism now that we got some snow, we could see prices rise even a bit more as our visitors take the time to look at our home inventory.  Any Tahoe homes currently up for sale should benefit greatly from this.

If you’ve been thinking about selling your Lake Tahoe home, then now is a great time. With a low inventory plus an influx of buyers, it means more money for you and a potentially shorter time on the market.  As a seller you have fewer tahoe homes to compete with as the home inventory is so low.  Pull the trigger.

Tahoe Snow Report

Tahoe Snow Report

Report:  Almost none.

I can only assume that you’ve seen one of the many stories covering Tahoe’s lack of snow.  As of right now they’re saying that we’ll be getting snow this weekend, but unfortunately every time they’ve said that this year nothing at all has come of it.

Here’s a Tahoe snow report blog that I’ve been following lately : http://opensnow.com/dailysnow/tahoe.  It is written by a man named Bryan Allegretto.  I really like the blog because he doesn’t seem to try and get everyone hyped up and over-excited for a coming storm *ahem* every big news agency out there *ahem*.  If you’re looking to keep an eye on potential Tahoe snow, I’d check there first.
