Markets Poised for Biggest Price Gains | Realtor Magazine

The following article referencing an updated forecast for big real estate appreciation this year includes San Jose / Santa Clara and San Francisco in the top five.  If the Bay Area market is a leader in appreciation, the Incline market will in turn benefit, especially due to the tax haven aspect.  With no Nevada state income tax, lower property taxes and no estate tax, a residency in Incline becomes even more attractive.

Inventory is still historically very. With nearly no available land to construct new homes I expect that prices will continue trending up.

Markets Poised for Biggest Price Gains

Veros Real Estate Solutions is softening its housing price forecast for this year to 3.4 percent appreciation for the 12-month period ending March 31, 2015 for the top 100 metro areas. Last quarter, Veros had forecasted a 5.1 percent for the following 12 months.
“The wave of appreciation may have crested, but it has been an impressive recovery in many respects,” says Eric Fox, Veros’ vice president of statistical and economic modeling. “The market is stabilizing and the overall outlook is very positive. However, we won’t see the rapid gains we have experienced in prior quarters. Those days appear to be behind us for the foreseeable future.”
Still, Veros sees five markets—mostly centered in California—seeing home price appreciation well above national averages. The five markets Veros is betting on for the highest home appreciation over the next 12 months are:
  1. San Jose-Sunnyvale-Santa Clara, Calif.: +9.7% forecasted price appreciation
  2. Los Angeles-Long Beach-Santa Ana, Calif.: +9.3%
  3. Midland, Texas: +9.3%
  4. Bismarck, N.D.: +9.1%
  5. San Francisco-Oakland-Fremont, Calif.: +8.8%

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.
