Midsummer Update 2020


Tahoe-Truckee real estate is hotter than it has been in 20 years and possibly ever. I’ve been doing this since 2004 and even the crazy days of 2006 don’t compare.


Sales since the beginning of summer are staggeringly higher than the same time last year:


Sales volume is 3 times that of 2019.  The average price is up 38%.

Volume is 4 times 2006 and average price is 32% higher than 2006.


We are seeing multiple offers on most properties and even at the highest levels. We are seeing non-contingent offers and competitive bidding on homes that are handled properly.


What does this mean?


It’s easy to get a high valuation of your property. But handling the process is where there are vast differences in real estate agents. The listing process needs to be done carefully, strategically, and experience matters. If you do it right, you will get non-contingent, high price, quick close offers. If you need more time in your Tahoe-Truckee home, we can work that, as well. Call me to discuss how I help buyers and sellers navigate the wild ride that is Tahoe-Truckee real estate in Summer 2020!

I start from the perspective of doing what’s right for you and your property. I shoot straight regarding value and how we can maximize the sales price. I am known for creative, high-quality marketing and effective negotiations. I provide personal attention to both you and your property. I keep a foot on the gas throughout escrow. I attend appraisals for unique and high-end properties to ensure value is attained by the buyer’s bank. I watch the details. I use the best stagers, photographers, web developers and the finest print and online media. The end result is your property standing head and shoulders above competing listings and your sale happening efficiently. This is especially powerful when coupled with Chase International: Reno-Tahoe’s regional leader with over $1.5 billion in annual sales.
