lake tahoe real estate: Are Mortgage Interest Rates Higher in South Lake Tahoe? - 12/22/10 09:16 AM

Still at historic low rates, a South Lake Tahoe home loan is not as cheap as it was 6-weeks ago. (Lake Tahoe Real Estate Blog / December 20, 2010 / Richard Bolen)
On the heels of the good news in the article below, well guess what came with it? Higher mortgage interest rates, you know, that thing that always happens when things get better, or start appearing to get better. And that is what’s been happening more recently, rather than less.
Another way to process this is rather simple, when economic indicators improve it gets banks and bankers to thinking, … (1 comments)

Is this that point of a healthy US jobs market return? How does this effect South Lake Tahoe home buyers? (Lake Tahoe Real Estate Blog / November 24, 2010 / Richard Bolen)
Ok, we admit we have an agenda behind reporting a good jobs report. It’s good for all of us, especially here in South Lake Tahoe, and as we’ve much reported previously there will be little more than the status quo in the US housing market until there is health in the US jobs market.
As this report might effect those who are considering buying a South Lake Tahoe … (0 comments)

We didn’t ask for this, but we’re sure happy about it. Actually it’s a really nice, welcomed surprise. We didn’t know what to think when we were contacted via email a few days ago, one that asked us for permission to have our blog reviewed.
That email came in amid a flurry of activity, we agreed, and the truth is I pretty much didn’t think about us being reviewed thereafter. Until it came in yesterday.
Everybody likes hearing nice things said about them, but what … (1 comments)

lake tahoe real estate: Price it right, or it won’t sell in South Lake Tahoe - 07/31/10 09:08 AM

Sometimes More means not getting Less later. (Lake Tahoe Real Estate Blog / July 29, 2010 / Richard Bolen)
We saw this article in USA Today which says homes will sell if priced right. This is always interesting, right pricing, and it is often that one barrier that separates the South Lake Tahoe professional seller from the successful seller.
The Professional Seller : Lets review the term professional seller. This is a homeowner who is always selling their house, but never seems to actually sell it. The one factor that distinguishes the professional  seller is their house is always overpriced. … (2 comments)

lake tahoe real estate: Interest Rates Expected to Stay Low - 06/21/10 09:59 AM

Fed Pres Dudley Says Rates May Stay Low for as Long as 2 Years. (Lake Tahoe Real Estate Blog / January 15, 2010 / Richard Bolen)
Considering our post below, in which some economists cite one of the reasons home values will continue to decline throughout 2010 is due to rising interest rates, we thought this article would add balance, and some insight perhaps, to the forecast.
This Bloomberg.com article states that "short-term interest rates may remain low for at least six months and possibly for as long as two years."
Here’s a few bullet points:
Short-term rates are going … (0 comments)

An offal way of tracking South Lake Tahoe tourism... but we want all we can get. (LAKE TAHOE REAL ESTATE BLOG) Well, we have got to hand it to the Tahoe Daily Tribune today. And this one is about as good as it gets. It appears that our tourist industry is in the toilet, or at least the measurement of it is. Today’s local news is about tracking sewage flow data to estimate tourist visits. According to officials at the South Tahoe Public Utility District (STPUD), one can get a good count of the number of tourists here at any one … (20 comments)

Seems that Nevada is the fastest growing state in the country again. We had been for 19 years in a row, but fell off last year. Apparently Arizona was more attractive in 2006 for some reason. Now though, it appears normalcy has returned and we're back … (6 comments)
