South Lake Tahoe Real Estate Market Stats
With a 3.8 monthly absorption rate, we are in a strong seller’s market. Given the current state of the Covid world and while access to Tahoe for many is virtual, somewhat counter- intuitively, we are still enjoying an active real-estate market where solid values can be obtained by the buying and selling markets. Real estate listing Inventory is maintaining a slow but solid number of new listings coming to market while other inventory leaves the market in the form of sales (see absorption rate above) or expired listings. What we look for in these leading indicators is direction of the RE market for purposes of anticipating pricing and sales expectation. What we see currently is consistency (as opposed to volatility, such as the liquid equity investments markets). Please don’t hesitate to reach out to us and discuss the market place and how this might affect your plans for your real-estate at the moment we have green lights and blue skies but we’ll have to view it virtually!
