Realtors Association: Home Sales Prices Nearing Historic High

The Reno Sparks Association of Realtors reports that the market is scorching for sellers.  The median sale price is way up.


"Existing home sales prices are the second highest in Washoe County’s history, according to Dave Hansen, RSAR president for 2015.

“Even with the month-over-month decline in July sales, July 2015 units are the second highest in history in Washoe County, exceeded only by July 2005,” he said. “Both the Reno and Fernley market remain in a seller’s market. We are continuing to see low inventory levels that are keeping the market in the seller’s court. Homes priced right move quickly and often receive offers at or near the list price.”

Washoe County had 593 sales of single-family homes in July, RSAR reports, which is “an increase of 12 percent from a year ago in July 2014 and a 9 percent decrease from one month ago in June 2015.”

The median sales price for an existing single family residence in July 2015 was listed at $291,990. This is an increase of 17 percent from July 2014 and a 5 percent increase from June 2015, the report states.

Tahoe: 20+ ways to eat, drink and play this summer at Lake Tahoe - San Jose Mercury News

Nice article about recent personal experiences around Lake Tahoe.

Link to complete story in the San Jose Mercury:  Tahoe: 20+ ways to eat, drink and play this summer at Lake Tahoe - San Jose Mercury News:

"BEST TAHOE BEACHES
I have many great, happy memories of spending time at the lake. My mom used to rent a cabin every summer for all of us to visit. The family called me the tour guide because I would plan things to do all the time. It also helped that I drove a big old 1968 Suburban to haul all of us and our beach things around. I would make sure we would check out every beach there, take a ride all around the lake and tour the historic old homes. We've stayed on the north side and south side. All beautiful!

Last summer, I was able to take my son and daughter and their families for four beautiful days. To me, Sand Harbor is the best beach, but you have to get there real early because the parking lot fills up so fast. We spent most of our time on the beach of Camp Richardson. I took two of my grandchildren for a scooter ride from the beach through the trails of Valhalla. Lots of Kodak moments."

Home prices in high-end Lake Tahoe market still climbing | The Sacramento Bee

The view from a deck at an $8.8 million home for sale near the shore of Lake Tahoe is seen during a lakefront luxury home tour. Wednesday, June 26, 2013.


"The Lake Tahoe real estate market, a decidedly high-end sector, continued its post-recession surge in the first half of this year, according to Nevada-based Chase International.

The median sales price of a Lake Tahoe home increased 14 percent year-over-year to $525,000.

However, the average price of a single-family home actually decreased 3 percent, from $799,544 in last year’s first half to $775,438 in the first six months of 2015. That was a byproduct of fewer $1 million-plus homes selling this year – 77 as opposed to 86 in the year-ago period.

Unit sales, however, were virtually unchanged: 526 this year versus 531 last year.

Sue Lowe, senior vice president for Chase, said in a statement: “Our continued lack of inventory keeps our prices moving up.”

Notable high-end markets included Tahoe’s East Shore area, where the sales price median in this year’s first half was $767,500, up 14 percent from 2014, and Incline Village, with a median of $850,000, down 4 percent from a year ago.

South Lake Tahoe approves new rules for vacation home rentals | TahoeDailyTribune.com

Could more vacation rental regulations be coming to the North Shore?  If you have an interest in vacation renting your property more paperwork may not be far away.

Tahoe Daily Tribune

South Lake Tahoe Approves New Rules for Vacation Home Rentals (abstract)

"By a 4-0 vote, the South Lake Tahoe City Council approved new regulations governing vacation home rentals during another marathon session Tuesday.

The most recent vacation ordinance drew a lot of debate over the past year as the city attempted to address what it called a balancing act for residents and rental applicants alike.

City Manager Nancy Kerry said the new ordinance will provide a more streamlined process for vacation home rental applications.

Councilman Tom Davis recused himself because of his stake in vacation rental ownership.

Vacation rentals have been controversial topic in South Lake Tahoe for years, sparking a number of debates between long-term residents and real estate and tourist agencies about the impacts of vacation rentals on the community.

South Lake Tahoe has 1,735 vacation rentals inside the city limits... .

The proposed guidelines for new vacation rentals include notifying residents within 300 feet of a property, inspection by the city and a public hearing before the zoning administrator, if someone files a written protest within three days of notification. Kerry called the public hearing a fair addition to the permitting process."

Incline Village Real Estate - The Benefits of Living on the Nevada Side of Lake Tahoe

Following is a nice article regarding Incline living which was penned by Peg Augustus, a fellow Lakeshore Realty Sales Associate, for Realty Times.

"In the past few years, there has been a significant number of people relocating from California and other states with high income taxes and purchasing Incline Village real estate so they can live on the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe.



One of the reasons why many people are relocating and buying Incline Village NV homes for sale is the fact that Nevada is a low tax state, which makes it a desirable place to live and run a business. In Nevada, there is no personal income tax, meaning retirees from California or other high income tax states can get more from their retirement incomes if they live in Incline Village NV.

But it’s not just the lower levels of income and business taxes that attract residents to buy luxury homes for sale in Incline Village NV. The excellent quality of life and amenities available to Incline Village property owners entice more people to move here.

Incline Village real estate owners enjoy a wide variety of high-end amenities that are far superior to those found in other areas of Lake Tahoe. Incline Village has 3 private beaches, a modern ski area with a new base lodge, 2 world-class golf courses, tennis complex, a 34,000-square foot recreation center with indoor pool, disc golf course, and lots of parks. Incline Village is also surrounded by plenty of open space, and great hiking and biking trails set against the backdrop of one of the most breathtaking views in the world.

Full-time year-round residents in Incline Village are approximately 9,370, but this number can double during peak vacation months with second-home Incline Village home owners and thousands of tourists coming for the winter and summer months.

Traffic is relatively light in Incline Village, except during the busy holiday weeks, which makes it easier to get around, run errands, and get more done in less time than anywhere else in America.

The quality of water is at par with the quality of life in Incline Village. Tap water is so pure and clean-tasting that it has won many awards in contests nationwide.

Incline Village is a friendly and safe community where almost everyone knows each other. The very low crime rate makes residents and tourists feel safe to go outside any time of day or night without worrying.

They say the moon and stars shine brighter over Incline Village NV! This is true not only because of its higher elevation, but also because Incline Village virtually has no streetlights and residents and business owners are advised to turn off their outside lights in the evening so everyone can enjoy the brightness and beauty of the moon and stars above. Residents enjoy spectacular sunsets in all its lovely colors all year-round, and sometimes they can even see the Milky Way over the skies of Incline Village at night.



Incline Village’s local school system has one of the highest levels of academic performance and graduation rates compared to anywhere in Nevada, making it a perfect place to raise a family with children.

As more people realize that moving to the Nevada side of Lake Tahoe has lots of benefits, the demand for homes and condos for sale in Incline Village NV will continue to increase, which will continue to push prices of Incline Village real estate upward.

In spite of the rising home prices, home buyers are willing to pay the price for luxury homes for sale in Incline Village for the privilege of experiencing the high quality of life, no state income taxes, favorable business climate, and magnificent views all-year round in Incline Village NV... ."

Home prices race up, annual growth at 10-month high - MarketWatch

WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — Home prices rose in May during the hot spring sales market, pushing annual growth to a 10-month high, according to a report released Tuesday.

With demand butting against a relatively low supply of homes available for sale, a gauge of housing prices increased 1.7% in May, while year-over-year growth rose to 6.3%, the fastest annual pace since July, said CoreLogic, an Irvine, Calif.–based analysis firm. Gains were “fairly widely distributed across the country,” and 10 states, including the likes of Texas and New York, hit records for home prices. In April, prices in eight states reached records.

“Mortgage rates on 30-year fixed-rate loans remained below 4% through May, helping to fuel home-purchase activity,” said Frank Nothaft, CoreLogic’s chief economist. “Markets with high demand and limited supply, such as San Francisco, are recording double-digit appreciation rates over the past year.”Link to complete article:  Home prices race up, annual growth at 10-month high - MarketWatch:

2015’s Best & Worst States to be a Taxpayer | WalletHub®

View original article:  2015’s Best & Worst States to be a Taxpayer | WalletHub®:

Best-Worst-States-to-be-a-Taxpayer-Badge
The average American household pays roughly $17,000 in federal income taxes each year. And while we’re all faced with the same burden in that regard, there is significant disparity when it comes to state and local taxes. For example, taxpayers in the most expensive states spend three-times more to meet their civic burden than those in the cheapest states.


As you might expect, differences in state tax obligations – as well as the services for which funds are used – can have an impact on populous migration and thus the strength of local economies. Such trends are clearly evidenced at the top of the socioeconomic totem pole, with professional athletes, for example, often taking up residence in Florida or Texas for the tax break. And while academic research shows state and local taxes to have a negligible impact on overall population movement, one has to conclude that it makes a distinct difference on the individual household level.


It’s therefore fair to wonder: Which states have the most and least burdensome taxes?Thank you for viewing the Incline Village Real Estate blog. If you require additional information or discussion please contact me via Randy@RandyBull.com.

Mistakes people make when selling a home - USA TODAY MONEY

"The good news for sellers is that the market is tight. That's pushing home prices higher across the country, and the number of homes being sold is also up. The typical seller receives 97% of his final asking price, and his home was on the market for about a month, says the NAR."

The mistakes are self-evident but the article crystallizes them.  They are; price realistically, prep the home so it shows at its' best, do not refuse to negotiate, disclose everything ugly and have a backup plan.
