What About This Land in Tahoe?

Sometimes life can present you with something that is a unique and wonderful opportunity. What will you do when presented with that? Perhaps you can answer that after reading about this wonderful piece of Land in Tahoe.

How does about 8500 square feet in the city sound? What if that lot also had Tallac views, was on the Trout Creek meadow, and last but not least had LAKE views and access? This perfect piece of property is almost a double lot in size and is backed by a small unbuildable private forest and meadow as it opens up to an unblocked view of all the best that Lake Tahoe has to offer. All the lots to the left of the property are unable to be developed, so the home that is built here will be truly private and exclusive. You’ll be able to walk out your back door and get to the lake in less than a minute. There is also public beach access around the corner on Lily Ave. There are no other lots like this in the area. I dare you to walk the lot and surrounding area and not fall in love with it. A TRPA land cap study and topographic survey are on file.

The Story

I first saw this lot and the others that were bought with it back in July of 2014, and I absolutely fell in love with it. I was born and raised in Tahoe and I grew up on one of the meadows in the area. That said, standing near the back of this piece of land at the edge of the meadow, surrounded by our mountain vistas fills me with a powerful sense of nostalgia. With the Lake included in this picturesque tapestry you can’t help but feel humbled by the beauty.

I have spent several hours just walking and enjoying the area around the lot. It is truly remarkable how such epic vistas can change your thoughts and feelings. Being able to wake up to that every day would be a true dream come true, and I hope that I can share that experience and love of the area with someone who will treasure it as I do.

Gaining the Seller’s Edge – Tips for Selling Your Home

I wanted to hand out some quick tips for selling your home here in Tahoe.Good morning everybody, last time we spoke we had snow falling down and more on the way. That did not end up being the case, however, and we have late Spring-like conditions out there now.  Everything else I said about it being a seller’s market is still true. This is a fantastic time to be selling your Tahoe home if that is your intention.  In fact while trying to record this I got three calls between 7:30 and 8:30 alone on a listing of mine.

So on the topic of selling I wanted to discuss briefly the Tahoe market and how things are different here. In many of the “hot” markets sellers will often have inspections, clearances, and permitting background work done before being put on the market.  Here in the Lake Tahoe real estate market, that is done very rarely. I strongly believe that any seller’s who do that up here have a competitive edge and may be able to get sold sooner and potentially for more money than other properties which haven’t done so.

I’d love to know what you think? Let me know below.

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.

barbeque coals in a weber at nightObviously the lack of snow accumulation is going to be an issue, and not just for Lake Tahoe, but for California as a whole.  Unless we get to have an actual Tahoe snow report soon, summer is going to be rough in the water department.  There isn’t much we can do about it right now though.  I suppose we can all start conserving water early, which is something that we are doing at home.  I guess you can pray if that is your thing.  There is a popular event here in Tahoe called “Pray for Snow”.  I’ve also seen stickers and posters up at various establishments calling on people to “Dance for Snow”, “Chant for Snow”, and ‘Believe in the Snow”.  I’m willing to do all of them at this point, and I hope you’ll join me!  Other than that though, I’m making the best of the lack of snow, and winter weather in general.  Most evenings after my afternoon run you can find me outside, barbecuing.
