Keep Your Home on the Market this Winter Like the falling of Aspen leaves in October, listings are dropping off the market in Lake Tahoe.  It seems like an annual Lake Tahoe cycle that coincides with falling temperatures and the onset of winter. The local golf courses close, the beaches are suddenly empty, holiday decorations appear in stores and “Honey, let’s take the home off the market.”     Whoa!  Who made up that last rule? As a Realtor®, I’m always surprised by this fall market phenomena.  Did the need to sell diminish dramatically with falling temperatures? Do people really believe that homes don’t sell in the winter at Lake Tahoe? Or perhaps mortgages are harder to obtain during the winter? So let’s talk about some real concerns sellers may have, how to address them and how to d...

“If service is the rent you pay for your existence on this earth, are you behind in your rent?” –Robert G Allen You hear a lot about giving back and helping others around the holiday season. Even this article is an example. However, giving back shouldn’t have a ‘season’ or ‘time.’ There are people in our community who are hungry, homeless, struggling to make ends meet, unable to provide clothing and shoes for their children, victims of abuse, and the list goes on, every day of the year. I hope that if you do decide to buy toys for needy children, or donate food to a food bank, or buy a coat for a child, that maybe it will become a habit and continue all year. The colder season is here and with that comes those that do not have proper attire to face the frigid and bleak weather. There a...

Fall Hiking - We love it!!!   Every year around this time mother nature leaves us with an exceptionally mild and gorgeous fall.The Beautiful Aspens are changing to their bright yellow and the Maple’s to their bright red, creating an intense, fiery canvas surrounding our very blue Lake Tahoe.  Pair this with the 60-65 degree weather and you’ll have a perfect fall.This is a great time to put on those hiking shoes and head to the hills.Below are a few hikes for every level that we love. Beginner: The Crystal Bay Fire Lookout. If you haven’t been there yet you need to do yourself the favor and make it soon. It is about a  ½ mile walk on a mostly paved road (uphill). If you are not a local and therefore not used to the elevation but still want to get out and enjoy the fall this is an easy, I...

  It's October in Tahoe. The leaves are turning, an early-season snow fell and melted as quickly as it came, and a mild Indian summer is keeping the locals out and active. It's also providing a beautiful backdrop for Halloween festivities at The Lake. Scarecrows line the streets of downtown Tahoe City, ghouls haunt the forest in South Lake Tahoe and, perhaps most frightening of all, the 1980s return to The Lake's North Shore. San Francisco 80s cover band Tainted Love (pictured) headlines the Creeper's Ball each year, playing to a packed house at the renovated Crystal Bay Club Casino on Tahoe's North Shore. Dress up and enjoy your favorite 80s dance songs whether you actually remember the decade, were born then, or just need to hear a little Men at Work. The Bay Area band takes the stag...

       IMPORTANT DETAILS:      Single Family Home sales are down approximately 11% from last year while condominium and Planned Unit Development sales are down approximately 9.25% from last year.    There are approximately 219 single family homes on the market with a median list price of $1,395,000 and 206 condominiums with a median list price of $439,450.     Sellers will have to price their properties very aggressively to attract a buyer and consummate a sale in the last quarter of 2011.   Financing rates remain at historic lows however; the state of the economy continues to shake buyer confidence.     2011 looks to end up with actual sales down approximately 10% from 2010.         Denise Cash  775.691.3844                    Ken Cash  775.691.3855 DeniseCash@TahoeLiving.com       Ken...

    My wife and I are both real estate Brokers and love spending as much time Rving as we can. Technology tools at our disposal today make our lives much easier.  What a nice combination!!  Over the past 10 or so years, our connectivity has improved tenfold.  What we can do today was not even a consideration for my wife and I in the mid 90's.  It wasn't even available 5 years ago.  Remember the first in-car telephone?  Remember the first handheld cellphone?  Wow, what big contraptions.  We bought a motor coach a few years back and trying to spend as much time in it in the early days meant finding real estate offices, title companies and other places to send and receive fax documents.  We spent many an hour just chasing around to get real estate things done.  We were then and are now pr...

I am often ask by potential buyers "How many properties are for sale?  It seems like really alot."  The truth is .......Its historically about normal. For 20 years, the summer numbers are around 500.  There have been years (late 90's early 2000) where the number was around 600-700 and there were years such as 2003-04 where the number was just 100.         Incline Village Multiple Listing Service Short Sale/REO/Bank Owned Data YTD 09/27/2011   Active RES, CON, PUD listings (A,C,P,R) 498 Total Listings 440 Active 33 Contingent 21 Pending Bank 1 Release 3 Under Contract   Short Sale, REO, Bank Owned (A,C,P,R) 55 Total Listings 55/498 = 11% of market   Total Sold RES, CON, PUD listings YTD 09/27/2011 167 total sales    Average sold  $809,452  DOM 211 days   39 sales were REO,Short Sale or B...
