Median prices of North Lake Tahoe take flight - The Sacramento Bee

Tahoe's high end home prices have resumed their upward price march per Bill Dietz, owner of Tahoe Luxury Properties, in a Sacramento Bee article.  Inventory around the North Shore is down, the selection is thin, and jumbo loan financing is readily available for qualified buyers.  Appreciating investment portfolios are providing buyer confidence.  Seller's market anyone?

U.S. Vacation Home Rebound Lifts Hilton Head to Hawaii - Bloomberg

U.S. Vacation Home Rebound Lifts Hilton Head to Hawaii - Bloomberg:

Lake Tahoe


Lake Tahoe, about 190 miles (306 kilometers) northeast of San Francisco, was among the first resort areas to bounce back from the recession as the Bay Area’s technology industry fueled fortunes among young families.
At Martis Camp, a ski and golf resort northwest of Lake Tahoe, 73 properties sold this year through the first week of June, compared with 117 in all of last year, said Brian Hull, director of sales at the golf and ski resort. Typical buyers are technology or finance executives in their mid-40s who pay $900,000 per lot and spend $2.4 million to build, he said.
“We sold OK through the whole thing,” Mark Kehke, president of Martis Camp’s developer, DMB Pacific Ventures, said in a telephone interview. “Things were definitely better in ’11 and ’12 and we’re doing even better this year.”
In Hawaii, vacation-home demand has recovered as investors from the U.S. mainland and Asia return after a five-year slump, according to Kevin Miyama, president of the Honolulu Board of Realtors. Home prices in the state soared 17 percent in April from a year earlier, according to CoreLogic.

Foreclosures Fall Due to New Laws / CNBC

Vacation-Home Buyers Face Financing Hurdles / Realtor Magazine


Qualifying for a loan isn’t easy for most borrowers nowadays, but it’s particularly difficult for vacation-home buyers, who are finding tougher underwriting requirements and other obstacles.

“Many popular vacation-home destinations are in the same markets where property values tanked during the housing downturn and have yet to stabilize,” MarketWatch reports. “Some lenders say they’re concerned about underwriting mortgages in areas where prices could fall further. In other cases, lenders won’t approve mortgages if they receive a shaky appraisal report — for instance, one that includes sale prices from other towns when there’s a lack of comparable transactions in the neighborhood the applicant is buying into.”

Foreclosure Crisis 'Now Well Past the Peak' / Realtor Magazine

Foreclosure filings continue their downward spiral, dropping to the lowest level in January since April 2007, according to RealtyTrac's latest report.

Filings — which include notices of default, scheduled auctions, and bank repossessions — dropped 28 percent in January year-over-year.

"We're now well past the peak of the foreclosure crisis," says Daren Blomquist, spokesman for RealtyTrac.

Still, the foreclosure problem has a ways to go: Filings remain at double the pace of 2005, and foreclosure auctions are on the rise in 26 states.

"It's likely that by this time next year, we'll start to see 2005-type, pre-crisis numbers again," Blomquist says. Read more... | Realtor Magazine:
