Ready to Ski in Washoe State Park

I went to Sports LTD today where my friend Patrick Gillick helped me update my “backyard” ski boots from the old 3 pin system to the more secure and stable NNN system.  I live across the street from the Washoe State Park and I want to be ready when the snow really gets serious.  Not much better than to put on skis and head out for an over the snow jaunt from home, especially when my daughter and her skijoring dog, Juneau, join me.  Great fun, thanks Patrick.  I’m ready.20161018_155505[1]

Recent Realty World Conference and Awards Meeting

Realty World – Lake Tahoe was recently recognized for our achievements in serving the Real Estate needs of South Lake Tahoe.  Even though we are a small office with 12 agents, we are ranked very near the top of other offices many times our size.  We need to thank our friends in the community of South Lake Tahoe for your continued loyalty to the Realty World – Lake Tahoe family in allowing us to continue as your resource.  IMG_6061

REALLY Low Inventory in South Lake Tahoe

The inventory of available single family homes for sale is 173 at this moment.  There were 36 homes sold in November and there are 75 in escrow.  So, if you think it’s not a good time to sell, I would say the statistics suggest otherwise.  This quarter of the year is historically the busiest in the South Tahoe Area.  If you are thinking of selling, now is a great time as we see prices edging up and the Fed is talking about moving interest rates in the upward direction, there is certain to be an increase in buyer urgency.  If you are a buyer in this market and have a strong preapproval, you can take advantage of the still low rates.  Contact me to see which properties are not quite listed yet, I might be able to get you in ahead of the curve.

Pictured above is a brand new 1128 Martinhome that will be completed by Jan 1 and will be offered below $500,000 with four bedrooms and three full baths and a proper two car garage.
