Market Snapshot | February 20, 2014

It is amazing what just little bit of snow can do for a renewed sense of optimism in a resort town. The snow that we have received since the beginning of February, after a record breaking dry spell, has freshened up our ski slopes at higher elevations, and opened up new terrain for the very […]

Tahoe-Truckee Real Estate Market

As we head into 2014, we celebrate over 1 Billion in real estate sales for 2013! Even though we are off to a dry start, don’t worry, there is plenty to do in Tahoe even with a sub-par snowpack. Despite the lack of natural snow, Northstar still has great skiing coverage, thanks to the sophisticated snow-making Vail Resorts invested in a few years back. As such, skiers staying in the Tahoe area over the Christmas break came to Northstar, which reported record ticket sales days during this period. I have never seen so many families enjoying the ice rink and fire pits in The Village as I did on New Year’s Day. No snow, no problem. I did not hear anyone complain about the conditions at all! Families skied for a few hours, followed by hiking and mountain biking some of the area’s dry trails at lower elevations. The Ritz Carlton Spa and pool was also very busy pampering guests making time for this sort of leisure that they otherwise won’t at home. Lastly, I can honestly say that some of the darkest “goggle tans” I have ever seen in a January are out there!

The temperature this morning was 23 degrees, and we have already seen our first two snowfalls. Boreal began making snow last night.  Fall […]
