Kingswood Early Summer Update

Kingswood and Kingswood West had almost nothing for sale earlier this year but that is starting to change. There is roughly one home for sale for every one hundred homes in the neighborhood! 6 have already sold this year. I know of a Kingswood West home which received 5 offers in 5 days.
 
I have an upcoming listing on Oxford Court for $425,000. One of my colleagues has one coming up on Kingswood Drive and there is another on Forest Glen.
 

Quick Kingswood Update

How’s the Kingswood Market?

Kingswood and Kingswood West combine for over 700 homes and there is only one active listing in the neighborhood currently. I have an additional property listed for $425,000 but it won’t hit the market until June. A colleague has another property in escrow which never saw the open market.

This signifies incredibly low inventory. If you are considering a sale in Kingswood, reach out. This is historically low and creates an amazing opportunity for sellers.

Quick Dollar Point Update

How’s the Dollar Point Market?

There are over 500 homes in the subdivision and guess how many are for sale? Exactly 1. It’s pretty incredible. There are 2 in escrow at $1.1m and $1.9m. Among the upcoming listings which I know of is 50 Edgecliff Court. This pano lakeview home will enter the market at $5m which is almost a record high for Dollar Point non-lakefront.

Dollar Point has become majorly attractive for buyers. Days on market is 1/3 of that for the surrounding area. “Nothing is for sale and everything is selling” – my phrase for Tahoe thus far in 2018 applies especially well for DP.

Quick Lakefront Update

How’s the Lakefront Market?

 

Can you say wow?! 

 

We have seen historic sales at the uber high end. In the last 30 days estates at $40,000,000 and $25,000,000 sold before getting a chance to hit the open market. The larger sale saw a 4 day escrow – amazing. There were multiple offers on a $37,000,000 property in Incline Village. There are other high-end listings which will trade this year. Currently, the highest price is Chase International’s listing for which I am a Listing Ambassador: Crystal Pointe, $75,000,000.

Another property at $11,000,000 just entered escrow after just a few weeks on market. This property sold 3 years ago for $7.75m and no real improvements were made. It has one of the most impressive boathouses in the entire Basin – it’s basically a barn large enough for two very large boats plus there is an indoor entertaining area.

Quick Tahoe Market Summary

“There’s nothing for sale and everything is selling.”

 

We are seeing historically low inventory. Some neighborhoods have just one or two homes being offered for sale. Currently 28% of our inventory is in escrow – this is very high for our area. Homes under $500k are down to an average of 44 days on market – this is 20% lower than last year. Homes between $700 – $1m average 127 days on market.

Interest Rates: The Fed’s quantitative easing program from 2008 is beginning a scheduled slow down. This makes interest rates increase. Two other factors could contribute to increased rates in the near future: Inflation is looming and future Federal Reserve Bank meetings – some economists are predicting 4 mortgage interest rate hikes in 2017. This will make it more expensive for many buyers to purchase homes as time goes on.

Quick Mid-March Update

Currently the heaviest action in the Tahoe-Truckee marketplace is in the price bands between $400,000 – $700,000 (51 in escrow). This range represents 23% of total listings but it accounts for 40% of today’s escrows. The other hot price band is $1m – $1.5m where 22 homes are in escrow. 

Overall 27% of today’s entire MLS inventory is in escrow. This is a very high number and highlights the fact that we are very low in the number of homes offered for sale.
