A bedroom shall only be recognized as such for purposes of this ordinance if it has been approved and inspected by the Building Official, and can be verified by

2020 – 1st Quarter Real Estate Update

REAL ESTATE UPDATE LAKE TAHOE

Chase International just released their local statistics for the 1st quarter at South Lake Tahoe.  I must say some of the numbers are weaker than I thought they would be.  Keep in mind while the coronavirus picked up steam in March, most of March sales volume occurred from business written in January and February.  Nonetheless we had a strong first quarter for condo sales increasing a whopping 93% from this time last year to $13,571,000.  Note that condo sales increased by 11% on the Nevada East Shore.  However single family sales volume declined 14% to $54,321,000 at South Lake while Nevada declined 29%.  The median sales price for condos rose by 11% to $352,000 while single family homes declined 20% to $444,000.  Not sure what’s up with the condo market but that’s where the action is right now.

I’m sure you heard about the Nevada Governor Directive where open house showings, and in-person showings of single family and multi-family residences currently occupied by renters of real estate on the market for sale, are hereby prohibited for the duration this Directive is in effect.  However you can transfer ownership, as long as you do not need to view the property interior, inspectors do not need to go inside, appraisals are done from the exterior or the buyer waives his rights.  The new owner still has to honor the current lease and also cannot evict until this Directive is over.

I can be reached at 775-309-8454 if you need assistance.  My email is RStiles@TahoeSouthRealty.com. Be safe everyone!

Home Inspections

Home Inspection

I was curious as to how the home inspectors were handling the coronavirus so I reached out to Josie at TAG for an update.  Her response is below.
Hey Robert,
As of now, we are still working our inspections that were on the books.
We usually were 14 weeks fully booked with 2 per day.
What we did to minimize exposure is spread out our inspections doing 1 per day only which will keep us busy till about 3 weeks into April.
And with restrictions of course.
Properties need to be vacant, no tenants, buyers or sellers present and we wear our protective gear. 

Hope this helps,
Josie& Alan
