Real Estate Market Snapshot: Lake of the Pines, CA

Real Estate Agent with Century 21 Foothill

There are about 2,000 homes at Lake of the Pines. I bet you would like to know how the real estate market in this community is performing this year. You will be pleased and surprised to learn that Lake of the Pines real estate is really picking up in most price ranges.

The lower end of the price range, from the bottom to about $200,000 is sizzling hot. Lower priced homes are flying off the shelves. Why? For the past two years investors have snapped up every low-priced house available. Then, with historically low interest rates, first-time buyers have been chasing entry-level homes. Also applying upward pressure on prices, folks who lost their homes in short sales and foreclosures several years ago, are emerging from the "penalty box" and re-entering the market, usually at the lower end.

This intense activity at the lower end has created an aenemic inventory of available homes for sale at Lake of the Pines. Demand is high, supply is low. Prices rise. The momentum created by all the lower end sales is energizing home sales at the high price levels. More and more homes between $200,000 and $400,000 are being sold. Soon, the next price levels will beging to show quicker sales and higher prices.
