South Lake Tahoe Real Estate Market Statistics for August 2011

For those of you who know me, you know I can totally geek out with statistics and charts, so bear with me.  How I see it is, you can never have too much information.  Information is what helps us to make the right decision.  In this case, is it a good time to buy real estate in South Lake Tahoe?  Take a look and you decide.

August 2011 Single Family Home Sold Statistics:

I've also included sold statistics for July and June for comparison.  As you can see our numbers picked up for August compared to July.  I have a feeling September numbers will look good as well (see below to my South Lake Tahoe Real Estate Forecast chart).

Sold Price Survey:

I did a breakdown of the price point for single family homes sold for August and July.  I think this is a great way to see what the competition is like in your price point.  If you're in the market for homes in that price range up to $300,000, then you have some competition.  Whether you're looking to buy or sell in this price point, we would love the opportunity to work with you to help you stay on top of this competitive market.

South Lake Tahoe Real Estate Activity Forecast:

I personally like to see what the current activities are like and coupled with the sold statistics I find it useful to see the full picture of what our South Lake Tahoe real estate market is like and what to expect.  Looking at the total dollar pre-closing value for July and August that seems to be in line with the final closing sold statistics (go on top for Sold Statistic chart).  Then September closing numbers should look good as well.  Stay tuned...

Looks like there's a huge improvement from July to August. That's always a good sign.

Grace (and Brandon), this is a great market update!  It gives a really good sense of the market, which looks like it's showing signs of improving.  Do you do this for the Nevada side: Kingsbury-Glenbrook, too?
