Summer has officially begun in North Lake Tahoe and Truckee! The Truckee River is flowing and full of rafters on the lazy float. Fishermen are out, testing their skills against the trout that are running upstream. Boats are abundant on Donner and Tahoe with the lakeside restaurants and bars clamoring with smiling faces. Mountain biking and hiking trails are clear with trial heads parked full of adventurers setting out to find their next thrill or escape into the wilderness. Yes, the busy season is in full swing which means it is also the best time of year to list your home!
Each year the Tahoe region receives 15 million visitors, with the bulk of this coming from May – September, and the peak in July and August. With nearly perfect weather day in and day out, schools being on summer break, foliage in full bloom, and water temperatures warm, Tahoe is in full swing during these months. It is a time when people who are visiting the area for the first time fall in love with the area, and those who have been visiting for years decide it is time to own a property here. Showcasing your home during this time only makes sense. It is the time of year when Tahoe is on full display, your home can be seen in its true beauty, and the number of people here in order for your property to gain complete exposure is at its peak!
After over a year of uncertainties and being stuck at home, people are finally feeling like the world is getting back to normal. And they are ready to travel to make up for a lost year of experiences. The Tahoe lifestyle has always been aspirational, and now more than ever we are continuing to see people move away from city centers, embracing remote work, and make their homes closer to the things they enjoy doing. In Tahoe, you can hike and bike before your workday, and you can hit the beach or take the boat out afterward. Summer is the perfect time to show off all that Tahoe has to offer, with the long summer evenings offering endless opportunities to get outside and enjoy life again.
The Tahoe lifestyle is so desirable that house inventory remains low. This is great news for potential sellers because there is limited supply and increased demand. Buyers are motivated and willing to pay top dollar for the home of their dreams.
Low Interest Rates
Interest Rates remain historically low, but experts are predicting this could change within the year. Low interest rates have been great news for buyers, who are taking advantage of the opportunity to lock in lower costs. This is also great news for sellers, who are seeing interest from buyers who may not have considered higher price points in the past. With rates hovering as low as 2.25%, now is a great time to capitalize on motivated buyers who know these rates won’t last forever.
Peak Summer = Peak Sales
Summer is always a busy time in real estate and taking into account the huge increase in demand last summer, we are predicting this summer might even break all those records we broke last year. We saw record-high demand and sales prices, and record low days on market.
